31 Scary Movies To Watch

I am not a big fan of being really scared when it comes to watching movies. Scary movies can easily influence me and I will have nightmares if I watch something scary. If I watch something scary I then have to watch something happy and light-hearted after to counteract the fight or flight response in my body. Being spooked sometimes is a good thing when it comes to Halloween. Here are 31 scary movies to watch to put you in the holiday spirit.

Freaking Things Happen during Scary Movies

Freaky things happen when we watch scary movies. I remember watching The Conjuring with Mike, Mikey, and Mikayla, and Mikey’s straw went missing from his drink when Mike handed it to him.

Taking a sip from the drink when Mike handed it to him. Mikey kept his drink next to him, so he wouldn’t have to ask Mike again. Picking up his drink again the straw was missing. We searched all over for it and couldn’t find it.

While sitting there a golf ball started rolling around in the middle of the room. It started moving on its own. It was nowhere near us, the cats, or an air vent. See below the way it rolled across the floor.

It freaked us out and we have never watched The Conjuring again. Beware when watching some of these movies.

    The English adaptation of The Ring wasn’t that scary. Watch the original Japanese horror movies and you will be surprised how nerve-wracking scary they are 🙂

  25. These seem like great choices for Saturday movie nights. Thank you.

  26. I definitley am a huge fan of horror movies, most of the films here were all very familiar which i have watched growing up. The feeling of watching these films were so mind-awakening were I’m very thrilled everytime there’s something spooky especially the sound fx haha

    1. Some of these movies scared the bejeezus out of me growing up. Now I watch them and think why did they scare me? but I still ended up getting scared. LOL

  27. I might be a bit weird but I love the novel of Carrie as I love the last part of the novel. It shows that Carrie wasn’t a monster, but had some humanity as she could have killed Sue. I love that about Carrie.
