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, 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 29th is… The Strangers.
The Bleeding House is a unique Home-Invasion Horror movie with slasher elements. It’s a moody, understated film with an almost literary quality, reminding this blogger of Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been by Joyce Carol Oates and John Steinbeck’s The Chrysanthemums.

Watching The Aggression Scale on Tuesday and blogging about it yesterday got me thinking about the very best examples of the Home Invasion subgenre of Horror. Time for another list!

Last year’s crowd-pleaser You’re Next brought the Home-Invasion sub-genre of Horror back to the forefront.
A great film in this same category (that not many people seem to have seen, but should) is 2012’s The Aggression Scale, directed by Steven C. Miller.

So I’m poking around on Amazon, buying a few new DVD’s for my collection and checking out my “recommendations” and I come across this flick called Mischief Night. Looks cool, has a solid 4 star rating, and I vaguely remember reading about it on someone else’s Best Horror of 2013 list… “What the heck?” says Saucy Josh, “Let’s be impulsive and daring in our quest for overlooked genre gems!” So a click here, and a click there, and Mischief Night is mine a few short days later.
