Lolo's Lists: Top 10 Favorite Halloween Horror Movies!

With our Halloween horror movie marathon month finally winding down, we wanted to showcase our collective top 10 favorite Halloween horror movies for you, our lovely readers. From ghoulish to downright gross, here's our list, in no particular order!
1) "Carrie" (1976): A creepy, slow-burning horror film with a fantastic performance by Sissy Spacek, "Carrie" is always fun to watch.
2) "Evil Dead 2" (1987): This hilariously outrageous horror comedy brings many laughs, tons of scares and blood by the gallon. Bruce Campbell is a legend.
3) "The Exorcist" (1973): One of the most famous Halloween horror movies of all time, and for a good reason. "The Exorcist" is still scary today and has some really great makeup work.
4) "Halloween" (1978): Another all-time favorite of ours. Michael Myers is the most menacing horror villain ever, and the film has one of the best and most iconic soundtracks in cinematic history. Watch with the lights off!
5) "The Lost Boys" (1987): A guilty pleasure Halloween movie, "The Lost Boys" is fun, cool, and so very 80's. Kiefer Sutherland's hair for the win. Plus, epic sax man.
6) "The Mist" (2007): a new favorite of ours, "The Mist" adds tons of sci-fi elements to an already horrify situation, but then piles on the fear-mongering and fanaticism on top to audiences a truly terrifying treat.
7) "The Omen" (1976): devil children are scary as hell. Enough said.
8) "Poltergeist" (1982): though less bloody and far more creepy, "Poltergeist" is a film that aims to spook you, despite being rated PG. Its eerie music and noises, plus a horrible clown doll, set the mood for the classic film. Also, MORE CREEPY KIDS.
9) "Saw" (2004): part mystery, part thriller, all gore. The best of the "Saw" franchise (obviously), and the ultimate beginning of a new era in horror cinema.
10) "The Thing" (1982): a wonderful science fiction horror that's as much about mistrusting those around you as much as it is about an alien invasion. Fantastic FX and makeup, plus, Kurt Russell and Wilford Brimley.
