Top Picks of Suggested Horror Movies to Watch on Halloween’s Eve
While looking for some scary movies we plan to watch this coming Halloween’s Eve, we chanced upon Esquire’s top 40 list of actually terrifying scary flicks to watch on All Hallow’s Eve. Esquire’s list includes some terrifying flicks that many may have already seen, like “A Quiet Place”, “Rosemary’s Baby” and “The Exorcist.”
Even before Halloween we previewed some that we have not had a chance to see at moviehouses. Below are the top 3 picks we previewed and from what we have seen, they could really keep you at the edge of your seat.
Hereditary is still new by standards as it was released only in 2018. It is about a housewife and mother of two who has to deal with the reality that the strange things that have been happening to her and her family were not borne by supernatural evil forces. Tragedy befell her family and her estranged, secretive mother died, and Annie thought that some evil force has been manipulating her children to act uncannily.
It was only when she attended a support group to help her cope with her tragic losses that she realized that the true cause of the tragic deaths was mental illness that was passed on from one generation to another.
The Babadook is another psycho-horror thriller that originated from Australia in 2014. It is also a story revolving around a young widow and of her six-year old boy. Her son happens to have a picture book of a Babadook, a tall scary figure of a man wearing a top hat, whom the young widow starts to see as creeping out of the book’s pages.
Since the the Babadook was starting to scare us,, we Googled the meaning of babadook to find out what it stands for in Australia. It turns out that babadook is an occurrence that transpires when grief overcomes a guilt-ridden mother. The babadook is a local metaphor to describe the evil incarnate that is said to be driving a mentally unbalanced mother to make adverse actions against a member of her family,
Goodnight Mommy is one of the good choices that Esquire pulled from a list of foreigh films, since this 2014 Austrian horror film was selected as the country’s entry to the 88th Academy Awards for The Best Foreign Language Film.
A pair of twin boys became suspicious when their mother comes home with face all wrapped in bandage. Her explanation was that she underwent facial reconstructive surgery. However, the boys became suspicious when the woman who presented herself as their mother began acting strangely. Terrified, the twins tried to get help but to no avail, which made them decide to take matters into their own hands.
Another Esquire-suggested horror flick we are planning to watch but saving for Halloween’s Eve, is “It Follows.” The synopsis says it is about a woman whose new boyfriend revealed to her that he has an evil supernatural being for a stalker, which he can only shake off by transferring “it” to another person by engaging him or her in sext. Unfortunately, her boyfriend told her about the evil stalker after having sex with her.Tags: Halloween's Eve, Horror Movies
