In addition to being a horror movie, it also doubles up as an excellent option for an in-depth study into the loneliness. The shock moments that the movie offers you can be one of the scariest, and that is what would make it one of the perfect choices for all your Halloween movie needs.

2. Scream (1996)

Director: Wes Craven

Writer: Kevin Williamson

Stars: Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, David Arquette

One of the most iconic horror movies of all times, Scream is all about how horror films have themselves been used to scare a little woman. A back comedy of sorts, the movie has a few big names of the industry behind it. A psychopathic killer goes on a killing spree, and everyone out there is a suspect.

The movie has been known to have re0invented the concept of teen horror and making it one of the mainstream ides in movie making. The iconic mask and the one-liners in the movie make it one of the scariest movies for Halloween.

3. Get Out (2017)

Director: Jordan Peele

Writer: Jordan Peele

Stars: Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Bradley Whitford

The movie is relatively modern in its approach but became a horror classic of a sort with its script. The protagonists move to visit their parents on the weekend. There is an uneasiness of their behaviour in accommodating them. However, as their weekend sojourn progresses, they realise something unique and unnerving that keeps unfolding.

The movie has its casual racism all through the length, and each of the frames keeps getting eerie as the movie progresses. The scenes are well-paced, and that is one of the enormous strengths of the movie. You would find it to be a bit of a psychological thriller – You feel tense but overly scary.

4. A Quiet Place (2018)

Director:  John Krasinski

Writer: Bryan Woods, Scott Beck

Stars: Emily Blunt, John Krasinski, Millicent Simmonds

It is a post-apocalyptic movie and involves the real-life husband and wife pair Emily Blunt and John Krasinski. The monsters have an ultra-sensitive hearing capability but are blind. The family is forced to live in silence and hence the name. The parents are forced to keep their kids safe where the monsters are hellbent in killing every sound that they hear.

While the concept of the movie is silence, the use of sound has been made a lever use of. You would find the power of silence quite compelling. In essence, we would indeed find it a great option as a means of the original idea, which is quite unique.

5. The Guest (2014)

Director: Adam Wingard

Writer: Simon Barrett

Stars: Dan Stevens, Sheila Kelley, Maika Monroe

A spooky action horror movie, it can definitely be a great set up that gels well with the Halloween watching. The movie in itself ahs the Halloween setting with its Jack-o-Lanterns, skulls and autumn leaves. The acting, soundtrack and the setting should make it one of the best movies for the Halloween that will keep you sucking feeling right from the beginning.

The movie is utterly engaging and entertaining throughout the length. Dan Stevens is exciting with his performance and keeps you on the edge of your seat all through the movie. Except for the climax, you would indeed find everything quite unique and exciting with the movie.
