Happy Halloween!

By Steve Lee

To celebrate my favorite holiday, here are a few images from our archives of some movie ideas to get into the Halloween spirit...

"Donnie Darko" (2001) One of the creepiest films I've seen in awhile. And it works for Easter Sunday, too...

"Gremlins" (1984) Set during Christmas... but scary enough for Halloween.

"The Haunting" (1963) The best haunted house movie of all time (just say NO to the remake).

"Nosferatu" (1922) The title vampire still gives me nightmares... and he's only on screen for a few minutes.

"Alien" (1979) "Surprise!" No one can hear you scream in space... but the exposions are still pretty loud.

"The Shining" (1980) "Sorry, wrong room." A brilliant example of how to put an audience on edge - Kubrick marvelously creates an unsettling, desolate, horrifying environment.

"An American Werewolf in London" (1981) John Landis brilliantly mixes comedy and horror. This moment was the biggest jump for me - and it's an image that's only on screen for about a second.

Happy Halloween! Be safe while trick-or-treating!
