13 Bone Chilling Horror Movies to Watch This Halloween

Ah, Halloween! That spooky day of the year that horror fans can't wait for. And what better way to celebrate than a horror movie marathon? Halloween movies should be creepy, entertaining and, to a certain degree, funny - it's definitely a magical recipe.
Well, better start microwaving that popcorn, because here are 13 horror movies you should watch for this occasion:

#1 Ginger Snaps (2000)

For someone who loves horror movies, Ginger Snaps is a must-see.
Two death-obsessed sisters, outcasts in their suburban neighborhood, must deal with the tragic consequences when one of them is bitten by a deadly werewolf.
Think of it along the lines of Teen Wolf, with lycanthropy as a metaphor for puberty, but with an R rating. Also, if you're into gore, but not into CGI, this is definitely for you.

#2 The Faculty (1998)

Ever felt like your teachers don't understand you? Like they're out to get you? They might be aliens. "The Faculty" is in many ways like "The Invasion of the Body Snatchers" for students. It's creepy, gory and funny.

#3 Cursed (2005)

Cursed is another movie which takes a stab at the Werewolf genre. It's by no means a masterpiece, but the story is captivating and the star studded cast helps a lot.
A werewolf loose in Los Angeles changes the lives of three young adults, who, after being mauled by the beast, learn they must kill their attacker if they hope to change their fate to avoid becoming werewolves too.

#4 Curse of Chucky (2013)

As someone who has grown up watching the "Child's Play" franchise, it's great to see this reboot/sequel/reimagining that brings Chucky to it's original horror feel, abandoning the comedic aspect.
After her mother's mysterious death, Nica begins to suspect that the talking, red-haired doll her visiting niece has been playing with may be the key to recent bloodshed and chaos.

#5 Trick'r'Treat (2007)

Fans of horror anthologies, like "Creepshow" are in for a treat with "Trick'r'treat":
Four interwoven stories that occur on Halloween: An everyday high school principal has a secret life as a serial killer; a college virgin might have just met the one guy for her; a group of teenagers pull a mean prank; a woman who loathes the night has to contend with her holiday-obsessed husband.

#6 Jennifer's Body (2009)

Jennifer's Body goes for the now-classic pretty-but-deadly-girl thing you've seen time and time again in the horror genre *ahem* Tamara *ahem*. Let's face it, you'll probably watch this for Megan Fox, but just give the script a shot as well, it's definitely witty.
A newly possessed cheerleader turns into a killer who specializes in offing her male classmates. Can her best friend put an end to the horror?

#7 Urban Legend (1998)

Urban Legends may be complete and utter BS, but once you read them you're bound to start avoiding getting yourself into those scenarios. The movie brings to life some of the most popular deadly legends.
A college student suspects a series of bizarre deaths are connected to certain urban legends.

#8 Beneath the Darkness (2011)

"Why does no one believe me?!" - yes, this is that kind of movie, where the villain always seems to be one step ahead and always take advantage of the circumstances.
After watching their best friend get murdered, a group of teens struggle to expose a local hero as the vicious killer and keep from becoming his next victims.

#9 Rosewood Lane (2011)

Much like "Beneath the Darkness", "Rosewood Lane" will feed into your paranoia. The supernatural overtone and creepy twist will probably make you question not tipping the paperboy next time he delivers your newspaper.
When radio talk show psychiatrist, Dr. Sonny Blake, moves back to her hometown, she takes notice of her neighborhood paper boy's unusual behavior.

#10 Jeepers Creepers (2001)

What this movie lacks in terms of originality as far as the plot is concerned, it more than makes up with bone chilling jump scares, and a villain that is probably one of the most iconic ones out there, although terribly underrated.
A brother and sister driving home for spring break encounter a flesh-eating creature in the isolated countryside that is on the last day of its ritualistic eating spree.

#11 Jeepers Creepers II (2003)

While sequels usually tend to be a letdown, this one actually successfully builds on the initial premise. The total change of focus is actually refreshing. Too bad a third installment has unsuccessfully been in the works for over a decade.
Set a few days after the original, a championship basketball team's bus is attacked by The Creeper, the winged, flesh-eating terror, on the last day of his 23-day feeding frenzy.

#12 Planet Terror (2007)

All of Robert Rodriguez's movies are kind of amazing, but "Planet Terror", alongside "The Faculty" are probably the best ones to watch on Halloween.
After an experimental bio-weapon is released, turning thousands into zombie-like creatures, it's up to a rag-tag group of survivors to stop the infected and those behind its release.

#13 After.Life (2009)

Sorry to say you're dead. Except if you're not. Or...? - Yeah, that's basically the whole movie, which is supposed to keep you guessing if the protagonist is actually dead or not. It might actually be more frustrating than anything, but hey - enjoy the plot holes!
A young woman caught between life and death... and a funeral director who appears to have the gift of transitioning the dead, but might just be intent on burying her alive.
