Prepare to be scared

My Top Ten Halloween Movies:
The Shining
Stanley Kubrick's adaptation of Stephen King's novel could quite possibly be one of the scariest films of all time. The bone-chilling movie is based in an isolated hotel where Jack Nicholson and his family have moved in as caretakers for the Winter. What follows is a ghostly encounter with a former hotel custodian who murdered his wife and two daughters. The eerie silence of the movie will haunt you long after you've hit the stop button ...
"Saw" follows the travails of two men held captive by Jigsaw, a serial killer who presents his victims with a terrible choice. The film delves into darker psychological territory while still maintaining an unhealthy level of gore the Saw series have been termed 'torture porn' - follow Saw II, III and IV for more of the same.
The Silence of the Lambs
Anthony Hopkins as Dr. Hannibal Lecter the Cannibal will scare you into numbness. Not for the weak-hearted - the psychological thriller is a two-hour-long hair raiser about FBI agent Clarice Starling, who tries to gain insight into a murderer's mind by interviewing psychopath Hannibal.
A Halloween night turns deadly when a former child murderer escapes from the mental hospital and returns to his small hometown to terrorize a babysitter. Soon her friends start disappearing one by one.
The Grudge
An American nurse living and working in Tokyo is exposed to a mysterious supernatural curse, one that locks a person in a powerful rage before claiming their life and spreading to another victim. Long black hair will never look the same again - there is no hiding from this creature - not even hiding behind the cushion will save you!
Texas Chainsaw Massacre
What sets this movie apart from other slasher films? Perhaps it was Leatherface's human skin mask, or maybe it was the roar of the chainsaw, or it could have been the "based on a true story" line at the beginning.
Night of the Living Dead
This black-and-white film can still disturb you to death. You'll cross your fingers for the group of people who hide in a farmhouse, trying to avoid being killed by the dead who have come back to life.
The Exorcist
You'll know why The Exorcist is the most bloodcurdling movie ever made when you watch the brutal depiction of a 12-year-old girl possessed by an evil spirit as the exorcist tries to save her, sick and scary.
Shock, nausea, and utter fright, you'll feel it all at the pit of your stomach while watching Seven. The intense psychological drama follows two detectives, played by Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman, as they try to catch a maniac who plans to kill seven people, one for each of the seven deadly sins - quite clever.
The Ring
A young journalist must investigate a mysterious videotape which seems to cause the death of anyone in a week of viewing it.This is believed to be the scariest Japanese movie ever made - enough said.
