Halloween isn't all about going out and getting drunk. If like me, you're looking at an evening in with lots of sweets then you might want to check out some of these films for a bit of a fright fest!

There's many more films you could watch but I just happened to pick these out of my DVD shelves. Bram Stoker's Dracula will forever be ruined for me by my advisor who gave me a rubbish mark for my dissertation (on vampires) and didn't seem to care. It's not a very good film, you would probably want to avoid it actually!

If you're having a school Christmas party, or prom, coming up then you might want to avoid watching Carrie but seeing as the remake is coming out then it's worth a watch.

The Lost Boys will forever be my favourite vampire movie - Kiefer Sutherland as a vampire is pretty awesome, and the soundtrack is good too!

Donnie Darko is more trippy than scary and it will leave you scratching your head for ages, wondering what the hell actually happened.

I only watched Candyman recently, I didn't find it overally scary but I was afraid of looking into mirrors for too long!

Cabin in the Woods is one of my favourite horror/drama (whatever genre it comes under) films. My boyfriend and I love Joss Whedon and we watched this film for my birthday after he cooked me dinner. It's probably not a typical birthday watch but I love it.

Lastly, you should most definitely watch Hocus Pocus. It's not scary at all but I love it!

If you fancy scarier films then any of these would be appropriate (from l - r): The Exorcist, Scream, Saw (only the first one), Halloween, Nightmare on Elm Street and Paranormal Activity (only the first one, yet again). These films have either genuinely scared me or just been very creepy!

Happy Halloween,
