15 Chilling Movies to watch this October

 Josh and I have always enjoyed watching a classic horror movie. It's something fun we love to do every October and have done ever since we began dating. We also love to gather around the fire pit with friends and roast s'mores while enjoying a scary flick on the projector. We have watched many a horror film in our day and have seen some really good ones and a few that were a complete snooze fest. I thought it would be fun to share my favorites in case you are looking for some to binge this month. 

Wait Until Dark

Audrey Hepburn stars in this 1967 classic about a blind woman who gets innocently caught up in a heroin drug deal. That particular jump scene still gives me the chills. 

The Strangers 

I first saw this at a lonely cabin in the woods with friends. I was so creeped out that I could barely drive home. This is one of those films that stays with you and makes you never want to answer the door again. 

Get Out 

Get Out is one of the best newer horror films in my opinion. The storyline is brilliant and has so many twists and turns. A must-watch for any fan in the mood for a good heart-racing film. 

The Shining 

Josh introduced this movie to me while we were dating and I must admit that I got a little angry with him with how freaked out it made me! Haha Let's just say I hope I never get snowed in at a secluded lodge in the mountains. 

The Conjuring

This film that happens to be based on a true story, will leave you scared of your own shadow. 1970s. Paranormal investigators. Demonologists. Secluded old farmhouse. Have I said enough? 

Halloween (2018) 

Josh and I love the Halloween movies, well the original and the 2018 remake that is. If you have never seen the classic 1978 version than you definitely should and then watch this one! So well done. 


We watched this 90's classic for the first time just a couple of weeks ago and quickly realized why it's still creepy after all these years. Josh and I were completely transfixed the entire film. 

The Visit 

One of my favorite M. Night Shyamalan's movies, this creepy horror-comedy film is perfect for a date night in. It's one I don't mind watching again and again. 

The Others 

Nicole Kidman plays the overly strict mother who likes to protect her children from a rare photosensitivity disease that causes the sun to harm them. This one is trippy and has a gothic flair to it that I love. 


Similar to Wait Until Dark, the main character is blind and must trust her instincts for survival from a home intruder. I don't know about you, but there is something super creepy about being the eyes of a main character in a film.

Rear Window 

One of my favorite Alfred Hitchcock films, this is such an enjoyable ride. Once again, there is something about putting yourself in the shoes of a main character with a disability, that is a bit unnerving. 

What Lies Beneath

I loved this movie because it kept me in utter suspense the entire time. It has that classic thriller/horror 90's feel that I dig. 

The Invisible Man

This movie was a lot better than I was expecting. In the same vein as Sleeping With the Enemy, this is one you won't soon forget. 

The Silence of the Lambs 

One of the first films I watched with Josh (with it also being one of Josh's favorites), this psychological thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat. Who knows a serial killer better than anyone? A serial killer. 

Strangers on a Train

This Hitchcock classic will make you never want to speak to a stranger again. Not many black and white films scare me but this definitely has an eerie feeling about it. The entire film is just too good.
