Movie Marathon Month

Hey all you movie buffs, now that it is October, one of my favorite movie marathons starts up again: 31 days of Halloween! Not only are scary movies played constantly on SyFy but Disney Channel also has some classics that I have to watch every year.

I was not always a scary movie fan though. It came as I grew older, braver and was no longer afraid of the dark. The first time I ever saw a scary movie was when I was around the age of 9. I will never ever forget that moment, scene or movie: Night of the Living Dead. To this day I can clearly remember the scene where the daughter turns into a zombie and tries to kill her mother with a shovel. That was the only scene I saw- I had to change channels right after that. I also had to sleep with my lights on for about a week!

Now though, I love the adrenaline rush that comes with scary movies and I cannot get enough of them. You can count on me being at the midnight premieres of the scary movies to come out this October, Annabelle being one of them. Midnight is the best time to watch a scary movie anyways.

Here is a list of my top 10 favorite Halloween/scary movies to watch during this season:

  1. All of the Scream movies
  2. Halloween Town
  3. Scary Movie 3
  4. Hocus Pocus
  5. All of the Harry Potters!
  6. All of the Paranormal Activities
  7. 28 days later and 28 weeks later
  8. ParaNorman
  9. The Conjuring
  10. The Mummy

I guess that is more than 10 since I included movie series. What are your favorite scary movies to watch during the month of October?

Sometimes after a long day of travel, it is great to relax and watch a movie. Red Roof PLUS+ properties provide NextGen® flat screen TV’s, Rest Suite beds by Serta® and an in-room microwave providing the perfect atmosphere for popcorn and a movie. -Katie

  1. Love your list, Katie, but wanted to add to it!! These movies are all in the pretty darn scary, cover your eyes category, too!! They are the original version or the first in the series. If you want a sleepless night, check these out, as well:

    Blair Witch Project
    The Shining
    The Exorcist
    Amityville Horror
    The Grudge
    The Omen
    Final Destination

    (The original, first version always seems to be the best!!)
