I know as horror fans we watch these films all year round. But there is something about October that we seem not only double our efforts when it comes to scary screenings, but I know there are a few titles that we all have that we bust out each and ever October. Could be a childhood favorite? One that really hit home with us around holiday? Or one that just fits the mood of Halloween and is something you need to watch at least once a year.
For me, there are a few. A childhood favorite that still makes me smile and feel like a kid again is Mad Monster Party? (1967). This is one that I would always be searching the TV guide for to get to see it once again. Sure, it’s silly, but as a kid, giving me a whole island full of the classic monsters was always a good time. Besides, when you have Boris Karloff lending his voice and likeness, how could you not love this?
Another one is Romero’s Night of the Living Dead (1968). Even now, after as many times as I’ve seen it, I still think this is highly effective and damn creepy. The music, the shots of the zombies slowly moving across the fields, and even the black and white gore, still packs a punch.
So what say yee? What are some of your favorite titles for this time of year? We want to hear! Who knows. Maybe you’ll spark the idea in someone else’s head that maybe they need to watch that title as well! Just post your answers below in the comments and let the conversations begin!
