5 Best Scary Movies to Watch for Halloween

It’s spooky season! My favorite thing to do around Halloween is to watch as many scary movies as possible. I’m super picky about which ones I watch though, and I do not like the ones that have a lot of cheap jump scares. My favorite scary movies are the ones with the good story lines, and sometimes those can be hard to find. I’ve watched so many terrible horror films, so I decided to make a list of the best scary movies that I’ve seen so that you don’t have to take the time to pick through the bad ones! Enjoy all of these scary movies for your Halloween weekend!

1. Oculus


10 years after their parents’ deaths, Tim and Kaylie decide to try to destroy the mirror that they believe caused their parents to die. The mirror puts up defenses, however, and is not going down without a fight. While trying to destroy it, Tim and Kaylie get caught up in the mirror’s illusions.

This movie is AMAZING. It is one that will definitely make you think. This movie is super trippy and can make you question your reality. Definitely recommend.

2. Silent Hill

After hearing her adopted daughter cry out for Silent Hill in her sleep, a mother decides to take her daughter there. Once they enter the town of darkness, the mother and the daughter get split up, and the daughter’s connection to Silent Hill is revealed through a series of creepy and dark events.

I’ve watched this movie so many times, and it is amazing and unnerving. It’s a perfect movie to include in your halloween horror movie list.

3. The Conjuring

After a family moves into an old farmhouse, they soon realize that there is a demonic presence there. They ask for the help of demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren. The past of the house is revealed through a series of crazy events as the paranormal occurrings get more and more terrifying and intense.

This was my favorite horror movie for a long time. It has an awesome story line and is so spooky and intriguing. It was really popular when it came out so I assume you’ve probably seen it or heard of it already, but if you haven’t, it is definitely worth giving it a watch!

4. Insidious

In this movie, a family moves into a new house. One of the sons is looking around when he falls off of a ladder and into a coma. He doesn’t wake from the coma, however, and the family has to figure out how to get their child back from the place that he has been taken to by an evil entity.

This movie is just as thought invoking as all of the others and has an awesome story line.

5. Sinister

An author who has writers block moves to a house where a family was murdered, looking to research for a book he wants to write. When there, he finds movie film that shows how the previous family was murdered. It is soon realized that there might be a supernatural force at work in the house.

I didn’t get to watch this whole movie, but I remember really really liking the first half of it. I’ve been wanting to rewatch it ever since! Based off of what I’ve seen from it, it is totally worth a watch this Halloween.
