result_1506897222312

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.

Series

  • 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

Movies

  • 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’m continuing the tradition of watching Halloween-themed and scary movies in the month of October.  My list contains a wide variety of movies that I’m looking forward to.

  • 28 Days Later – George Romero got me hooked on the zombie phenomenon. Someone recommended this movie as someone who enjoys zombie flicks.
  • The Birds – Hitchcock should always make the list.
  • Cabin in the Woods – I always enjoy this movie.
  • The Conjuring – I’m most nervous about this one. I imagine I may be hiding under a blanket during most of this movie.
  • Halloweentown High – Silly Halloween choice, but I’m a huge Debbie Reynolds fan.
  • The Haunting – 1999 version
  • House on Telegraph Hill – 1951 psychological thriller
  • Rocky Horror Picture Show – I just found out that my husband has never seen this movie, so I have to rectify this.
  • Zombieland

Prior to October, I did rewatch the original IT miniseries just in case I decided to go see the new version in the movie theater. Has anyone seen the new one? How is it? What are your other favorite movies to watch at this time of year?
