Halloween Fun

Well, Mustangs, it’s almost that time of the year again. The time of werewolves, vampires (Hopefully not the Robert Pattinson version), and ghouls; of bobbing for apples and carving pumpkins; of dressing up like our most terrifying nightmares. Of course, I am referring to Halloween. But what if Trick-or-Treating just isn’t your style anymore or you don’t have any parties to attend that night? If you’re having trouble finding an eerie or entertaining activity for Halloween, here are a few horror movies that can help you get into the frightful spirit!


  1. If you happen to be at the movie theatres this Hallow’s Eve, you might want to check out Ouija, a new release following the unnerving tale of a group of teenagers who release evil spirits from their Ouija board game and must face the deadly consequences. But hey, it’s just a game, isn’t it? Ouija releases on October 24, 2014, and is rated PG-13.
  2. If you’re still at the theatre and want another spook-tastic flick, check out Annabelle. The prequel to The Conjuring, this movie revolves around a demonic doll that haunts a couple and their newly-born baby. Annabelle comes to theatres October 3, 2014, and is rated R.
  3. If you’re planning on staying home for the holiday to help pass out candy, a recent movie that may strike your fancy is The Cabin in the Woods. While possibly not as fright-filled as the other titles on this list (but definitely more gore-filled), this story of a group of college kids who spend their weekend in just some regular “cabin in the woods” is still a shocking thriller that will leave guessing until the very end. The Cabin in the Woods is now available on Netflix.
  4. Finally, if you’re in the mood for an older movie, from the 1980’s, you should look up The Shining on your television. Jack Torrance, the main character, slowly loses his mind at a secluded hotel with only his wife and son present. The Shining is not available on Netflix and is rated R.
