Michelle from What Shell Says

My favourite Halloween film is Hocus Pocus, I love it! I watch it every Halloween and it just reminds me of being a kid.

Angelica from One Little Vice

My favourite scary movies have to be one of the new “classics”, like the Scream or Final Destination films. There’s something about a cheesy franchise that I really like when it comes to scary films!

Becky from Becky Bedbug

I’m actually a total wuss, so scary films are off limits for me! However, the little emo kid that still lurks within me means it’s necessary to bring out The Nightmare Before Christmas every Halloween! It’s just so beautiful!

Charlotte from The Good Owl

Ooh, my favorite scary movie it’s a tough one as I’m a bit of a Scary movie film buff. I’d have to go with the last one that really frightened me Insidious – Something about that scary black veil and dress gave me the heebie-jeebies.

Alex from Alex a la Mode

My favourite Halloween film of all time isn’t actually that scary but I LOVE Hocus Pocus!

Terri from Hello Terri Lowe

With regards to scary films, have you ever seen the film Willard? It’s about rats and is scary in a non-classic Halloween way. I love it though!

Michelle from Thou Shalt Not Covet

My favourite Halloween film is The Craft!

Sophie from Sophie Rose Hearts

Ooh Halloween films. Well Hocus Pocus is a classic! And scary films like Orphan, House at the End of the Street and Paranormal Activity are always scary too!
