31 Days of Halloween

Don’t forget about these Halloween movies this weekend!

Some overlooked treats.

Welcome to another installment of 31 Days of Halloween! This is our chance to set the mood for the spookiest and scariest month of the year as we focus our attention on horror and Halloween fun. For the month of October we’ll be sharing various pieces of underappreciated scary books, comics, movies, and television to help keep you terrified and entertained all the way up to Halloween.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly movies podcast, Adventures in Movies!

This will be one of the stranger Halloweens of all time. Trick or treating and large parties may be out of the question, but that does not mean you cannot still revel in the spirit of the season. There are plenty of movies that have become Halloween traditions for many. This list is not those films. Here are some movies that are probably not currently on your Halloween movies list but should be added ASAP.

Verotika

Danzig’s homage to horror may not be the scariest movie on this list, but it can certainly contend for funniest. From the story revolving around strippers and strip clubs that has no nudity to breasts with eyeballs, Verotika would be one of the greatest comedy horror films of all time if it was meant to be funny. It provides tricks and treats.

The Monster Club

In a genre filled with icons,  it is inevitable that even the biggest of names will be forgotten. Such is the case with Vincent Price.  One of horror’s biggest personalities, Price only seems to be mentioned around Halloween season. The Monster Club is an anthology in which Price plays a vampire who tells stories to a group of monsters. Silly, scary, and an awesome soundtrack all make this a Halloween must watch.

Hell House LLC 

This one will check off a lot of boxes. Set around Halloween at an extreme haunted house, Hell House LLC is the definition of a scary movie. In 2009, a haunted house known as Hell House opened its doors to the public. Fifteen people died that night. Shot in the style of a documentary, this found footage horror does a great job of building its mystery.

From Beyond

Ask a random horror fan to tell you the best H.P. Lovecraft adaptation and chances are they will tell you Re-Animator. There is good reason for this as the movie is a classic. From Beyond is another Lovecraft adaptation from director Stuart Gordon starring Jeffrey Combs and Barbara Crampton. The story about two scientists that accidentally contact another dimension is a disgustingly good film that still holds up.

The House of the Devil

There are plenty of movies that deal with Satanic cults. Few are as criminally overlooked as Ti West’s The House of the Devil. Sporting a retro look, this slow burn horror is a prime example of how to build tension. The story follows a college student who is hired as a sitter for a sickly woman. She soon learns nothing is as it seems in this homage to 1970s and 80s horror.
