Scary Scream Worthy Movies for this Spooky Season

Fall is here and the spooky season is upon us Boos and Ghouls.

Grab your pumpkin spice (coffee, ale, tea, whatever), favorite snacks, and cozy blanket… it’s time for a creepy night full of scary movies all easily found on Netflix.

But before we dim the lights and click play, let’s run through some basic rules for surviving Scary Movie Night, because you never know when you’re actually in a scary movie.

7 Rules For Surviving Scary Movie Night:

  • Never say who’s there when you get a a creepy phone call or a knock at the door to your unlit front porch.
  • If you skip these streaming videos and go old school with VHS tapes (anyone else have these as a kid) or DVD (and also have these as a kid), don’t watch it if it doesn’t have a label.
  • If you’re boozing it up and you end up being in a horror movie, you might be in trouble.
  • Drink all the coffee…. caffeine is literally everything.
  • Children = probably demons.
  • Practice the buddy system, going somewhere alone (even to the bathroom) my cause you to come face to face with the axe murderer.
  • If you hear a bump or commotion outside or in another room, for the love of everything don’t go investigate. Just don’t. It doesn’t work out in the horror movies, so it likely won’t work out so well for you either.

Now let the scares begin….

Short on oxygen, trapped by blood thirsty sharks…. this is my worst nightmare.
