When I was little, horror movies used to absolutely terrify me. I would get nightmares from even the smallest parts of the film, but I would still watch them anyways. I loved the thrill and feeling of being scared.
As an adult, I still watch horror movies whenever I can, but they don’t really have the same effect on me. I still love them, though and I enjoy reading mystery/thriller novels, though. I wanted to share some of my favorite horror movies with you guys for today’s post so that you can stock up for the week of Halloween!
*Also, I’m not a film critic in any way, so this is just my opinion. Don’t take it too seriously.
If I’m being honest, this is probably one of the only horror movies that still scares me. I just remember it having a lot of jump scares and creepy, realistic scenes. I watched every single movie from this series with my childhood best friend. We actually had movie nights almost every Friday, and this was one of our favorites.
This is a classic. I loved it so much when I watched it for the first time, and I still really, really like it. I actually bought a DVD of this movie when I was like 12 at a festival I went to with my family, and since then, I have re-watched it numerous times. It is so well done, and it’ll definitely give you goosebumps.
I have only watched this one once. I honestly don’t remember much from it. But I watched it when I was on vacation in Poland when I was around 11 years old, and I remember it scaring the living daylights out of me. I couldn’t sleep for the next two nights. I don’t know if my opinion on it would have changed now, but I’m still keeping it on here.
The Silence of the Lambs:
This is another classic. I watched it just a few year ago for the first time, and I thought it was amazing. I’m planning on re-watching it very soon, too, because it is perfect for the Halloween season.
A Quiet Place:
This one was GOOD. I feel like I haven’t watched many recent horror films, but this is one that I was able to see. Watching it on the big screen definitely enhanced my enjoyment as well. It was super atmospheric and spooky.
This is one I watched so, so long ago. I just remember it scaring me a lot. It’s about a group of people stuck in an elevator, and one of them is the devil. It’s such a cool concept. Highly recommend it.
Do you like horror movies? If so, what are some of your favorites? I need recommendations for some more recent ones because I’ve been very bad at keeping up with them!
