Ira Riklis: loves a scary movie, so it will be interesting to learn what movies he would
recommend for Halloween fans.
The really scary Halloween movies aren’t intended for kids, so I’m going to assume
you aren’t asking me about family entertainment. I’ve always thought that the scariest
Halloween movies were those with a lot of gore. If I don’t have to cover my eyes during
a scary movie, it’s not of the Halloween fan caliber.
What are your favorite gory Halloween movies, then? The ones that pass your blood and
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre definitely tops my all time favorite list. Not only for the
gore content, but Leatherface is wearing a mask that is made of skins. I think that tops
the hockey mask of Jason in the Friday the 13th, although Jason has to be included in my
top 5 scariest Halloween movies.
Zombies have been popular for several years now. How do the living dead films rate on
your scary Halloween movie meter?
Day of the Dead is one of the best zombie movies I’ve ever seen. Not only is it scary
enough for Halloween fans, it also passes the gore test.
What about thriller movies? Does the lack of rivers of blood automatically remove them
from your favorite scary Halloween movie list?
If a movie is done well, the fact that it could be true makes it doubly scary. Silence of the
Lambs is a psychological thriller that has to go on anyone’s top 5 scary movie list. And
we can’t forget the classic, The Exorcist.
