I'm a horror fan. I've always watched horror movies. I love all kinds of horror movies the good, the bad, the originals, the remakes and even those really crappy, campy B movies that we all love to make fun of. This personal list will have some you'd immediately think of...and maybe a few you might not.

So without further ado here are my top horror movie recommendations for Halloween.

1. Halloween (1978) The original horror movie for me. I saw it at a sleepover in 1980 and it started my love of the horror genre. Jamie Lee Curtis is amazing and the soundtrack still gives me chills to this day.


2. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003) I know people are going to think I'm crazy for not picking the original classic 1974 movie, but I actually like this version better.....and it's not just becuase Jessica Beil is running around in a tank top. Although that doesn't hurt. It's actually a really scary movie with lots of creepy action and R. Lee Ermy as the sheriff is just awesome.

3. Motel Hell (1980) I know this one is a weird choice. I saw this at the drive-in and it's one of those movies that's soooo bad it's good. It's the story of a motel owner that also runs a butcher shop that famous for it's delicious sausage.....that's being made from the motel customers. Oh, it also has a cameo by Wolfman Jack as a preacher....so it's got that going for it.


4. Friday The 13th. (1980) Camp Crystal Lake and Kevin Bacon terrorized by the deranged Mrs. Voorhees, mother of the hockey mask wearing Jason. This is the movie that set up "the rules" for all slasher films. Don't have sex, don't do drugs, don't go swimming and of course never say, "I'll be right back."


5. The Descent (2005) A group of friends go exploring a cave only to find that it has monsters living in it. II'm not sure why, but this movie scares the crap outta me every time I watch it. I don't know if it's the feeling being trapped, or the weird monsters or just the fear of being alone in the dark, but this movie really gets my heart racing.


BONUS Jaws (1975) I know some people don't consider this a horror movie, it's more of a thriller, but it's my favorite movie of all time and it still scares me....and I've seen it at least 200 times.

So, that's my list. What would be on yours?
