BLOOD AND MADNESS: 8 Cinema Creepers for Halloween

Getting ready for Halloween is one of my cherished times of the year. I start hoarding skull travel cups from the drug stores, I blueprint what costumes I can make for my kitties, and finally, it’s considered “normal” to binge watch a lot of my favorite films. Instead of making a list of the best horror films to watch this season (I hope we all have seen the Shining, Halloween, and the Exorcist by now), I ruminated over a different kind of list… Most of these could be considered sci-fi or psychological thrillers, and even “tame” in the eyes of many horror cinephiles, but I prefer creepier— more imaginative— horror plots. Here are my own recommendations for everyone who’s in the mood for something spine-tingling, sinister, disturbing, shocking, but nonetheless— human (even when they are monsters).

8. Altered States (1980), directed by Ken Russell.

This one is for the sci-fi lovers out there— A doctor who experiments on himself with hallucinatory drugs and isolation chambers, this movie comments on creation and the power of the human ego. It’s packed with visceral visuals, accompanied by bits of pseudo-intellectual gab.

IF I ONLY HAD A BRAIN… AND A HALLOWEEN COSTUME FOR MY ENTIRE GROUP OF FRIENDS.

So you waited until the last minute (again) to throw together your Halloween costume, and all the aisles at Party City and Spencer’s are picked over,  so you’re left to choose between purchasing a size XXL sexy referee costume or a stringy werwolf/witch wig that smells obviously used. Not to rub it in your face or anything, but you could have gone as a very well-dressed minimalist crew of Oz characters. Imagine skipping down a Yellow Brick Road wearing these spiffy shirts you can purchase at Society6. (Pro tip: Don’t be a tool. Plan ahead for next year, and call dibs as the Flying Monkey of your group.

The Best of Vincent Price – Master of the Macabre

Vincent Price
Vincent Price (1911-1993) was the master of macabre and best known as an actor in horror films. Although the horror films in which he starred look seriously dated compared to today’s standards (e.g., mask, camera and special effects) and lack the intensity of the horror genre as we know it today, his films have remained popular among movie fans. For Halloween, I wanted to share a list of his greatest films.
