When you hear the month October only one thing comes to mind and that’s Halloween. When I was a little kid Halloween was a time for me to indulge in large amounts of candy that would spike my blood sugar to levels that would make Willy Wonka blush. Those were great times. Now, the meaning of Halloween has taken a big turn to more of an adult oriented event where women and men dress up like Playboy bunnies and Hugh Heffners. Long are the pillowcase-filled candy and treats as our society now looks down upon consuming to0 much refined sugar and excess consumption of high calorie food.
But there’s one constant in Halloween to always be proud about and that’s the score of horror movies that gets released, re-released, rebooted, or remade. I love horror movies. Whether it’s about monsters, ghosts, demons, serial killers, aliens, or zombies they’re always fun to watch. It’s interesting seeing the human condition either suffer or survive something so horrific. It’s because those who survives are either the smartest ones or the bravest, unless it’s a Greek tragedy then all bets are off.
Below are some of my favorite horror movies. What’s yours?
Dawn of the Dead (2004)
Night of the Living Dead (Romero’s classic and the 1991 remake)
Stir of Echoes
Texas Chainsaw Massacre (original and remake)
