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 30th is… Trick ‘r Treat.
Urban Legends: Bloody Mary is the straight to DVD final chapter of the Urban Legends Trilogy. If anyone is thinking, “Well this doesn’t sound especially promising” well I’d certainly understand your skepticism. But I never disparage a straight to DVD release, and there’s nothing wrong with a solid franchise. Okay, Urban Legends isn’t exactly top-echelon Horror, but the original wasn’t that bad: The Face Cream Girl going crazy and Pacey from Dawson’s Creek daring to eat a of Pop-Rocks followed by a full can of soda pop. Good times. While I barely remember The Final Cut (the 2nd in the UL Franchise) and wasn’t really in a hurry to see the 3rd, Blood Mary had some surprisingly decent buzz. I even saw it on a couple “Best Horror of 2005” lists. So when I finally crossed paths with this film, I knew I had to give it a whirl.
