Are you looking to hang out with a few friends on Halloween night and watch a great horror flick? Every day in October, I’ll be suggesting a film that I believe will make for excellent Halloween viewing. Whether you’re an avid celebrator or a casual observer of the holiday, these films will convey the proper mood and spirit of October. In no particular order (and by no means a completely representative), here’s the next entry in my list of 31 excellent movies for Halloween Night—or whenever you’re looking for a frightfully good time.
My recommendation for October 3rd is… Botched.
Official Synopsis: During a heist in Russia, a professional thief finds himself dealing with serial killers, insane hostages, double-crossing psycho Russian hardmen and the real possibility of a horrible death.
Just like Halloween is a holiday that can be enjoyed by horror fans and detractors alike, Botched is a film that will appeal to a much larger audience than your average fright flick. Starring Stephen Dorff (before he made those annoying eCig commercials) as Ritchie, Botched has all the action and humor of films like Snatch and Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels along with some seriously black comedy. The movie is full of scenes that will have you asking yourself, “Did that really just happen?!?” Think Oceans Eleven meets Hostel.
