I am a seasonal movie watcher. I will only watch scary movies during the month of October. A couple months ago, I tried to watch Winchester, starring the amazing Helen Mirren, but only made it 30 minutes in before I just got too scared. I have decided to try that movie again now that it is October, along with a few others. I also have a couple of series I will be binging on Hulu and Netflix as well.
- Castle Rock – based off of Stephen King novels on Hulu
- The Haunting of Hill House – based off of the Shirley Jackson book and premieres on Netflix this month
- Winchester (2018)
- The Shining (1980)
- A Quiet Place (2018)
- Mother! (2017)
- Alien (1979)
- Aliens (1986)
- Scream (1995)
- Jaws (1976)
Do you like scary movies? Are you a seasonal scary movie fan like me or do you watch them at any time of the year? What are you favorites?
I can’t wait to watch Castle Rock. I started watching the first few episodes and they were really good. I stopped after the third cause I really think it’s better to watch this series episodes back to back. Going to start it again soon at some point.
I actually just watched Mother! I thought it was an interesting film. I didn’t think it was as bad as I heard it was, it was okay. I definitely want to watch A Quiet Place. I’ve heard that is a really good one.
Thank you for all the great input! I did the same thing with Castle Rock. I decided that one episode at a time was just not enough. I appreciate your thoughts on Mother!, as I too have not heard great things about it. I almost didn’t put it on my list, but I tend to watch anything with Jennifer Lawrence in it.
Yeah, certain shows are okay once a week, but something like Castle Rock after a few episodes felt like a show better to watch back to back. With the fall TV season starting up again who knows now when I’ll get back around to watching it, but it seems like Halloween would be a perfect time for a show like that.
Yeah, people seem to either really like Mother! or not really like it, LoL. I thought it was a pretty fair movie that kept my interest. Slightly weird, LoL, but I was curious enough to want to see where to story went.
