Best Halloween Movies To Watch Year Round

Nothing quite captures the campy horror romp like Stephen Spielberg’s 1982 classic, Poltergeist. It sets itself apart by striking that perfect balance between comedy and horror. This film drips with nostalgia of horror days gone by, making it a perfect Halloween movie night selection.

The story focuses on a suburban family who soon discovers that their new home has been invaded by a malicious spirit. Then, when their little daughter vanishes, everything goes to hell.

The movie isn’t just popular for its campy scares. It also has one of the most iconic lines in horror: “They’re here!”

The Exorcist

Scariest Halloween Movies To Watch Year Round

For those looking for more of a scare, The Exorcist is a horror genre rite of passage. Go for the director’s cut if you’re truly dedicated to getting the best experience.

This film’s deft use of practical effects, and its fairly faithful adherence to the William Peter Blatty novel by the same name, are just some of the reasons The Exorcist has withstood the test of time as a genre icon.

Loosely based on real events, the movie is about a young girl who starts talking in tongues and levitating. A local priest believes she could be possessed by the devil, and he tries to perform an exorcism.

The Witch

Best Halloween Flicks To Watch Year Round

When a Puritan family in 17th century New England is banished, they set up a farm at the edge of a massive, imposing forest. When their newborn son vanishes and their crops fail, all the family members start to turn on one another. Could it be rotten luck, or have they stumbled upon something sinister?

The Witch (stylized as The VVitch) is an excellent compromise for anyone with mixed opinions on horror. While it is absolutely blood-chilling, the on-screen visual scares are minimal and jump scares are almost nonexistent. The film gets away with this thanks to its absolutely suffocating tension, masterful storytelling, and brilliant characters.

While there is some on-screen gore, there is nothing pulpy about this film. Robert Eggers’ modern classic can be enjoyed by seasoned horror fans and uninitiated Halloween revelers alike.

Paranormal Activity

scariest halloween movies of all time

When a young couple moves into a new house, they get increasingly disturbed by an unseen presence that makes itself felt at night, when they are asleep.

In an homage to the campy Halloween feel—and Blair Witch Project scares—of all found footage films, the first Paranormal Activity film is one that should not be overlooked.

While the franchise has inarguably had its problems over the years, its first installment did something truly unique, crafting something truly horrific out of thin air and pulling the audience right into the horror. It also made a bucketload of money and became an instant horror icon, inspiring countless other found-footage films.

You probably saw this coming, but John Carpenter’s 1978 slasher is an absolute must-see when the spooky season rolls around. By avoiding many of the more problematic tropes of slasher fare, it earns its place as an icon of the holiday.

Jamie Lee Curtis shines in her role as a competent and likable protagonist, while Michael Myers is a boogeyman who just can’t seem to die. Halloween inspired countless other slasher movies, but few have managed to be as claustrophobic, tense or effective as John Carpenter’s classic.

We also recommend watching a few of the sequels. And 2018’s Halloween is arguably the best, since it avoids the over-the-top elements of the other sequels and goes back to the original’s simple scares and plot.

Trick ‘r Treat

This is an anthology horror film that takes place on Halloween night. It tells stories of werewolves, zombies, serial killers and other things that go bump in the night.

The common element is a mysterious kid with a burlap sack on his head and orange footie pajamas, who shows up whenever someone disrespects Halloween tradition.

The film has become a cult hit, and it’s now a must-watch for horror fans every Halloween—or, to be honest, every time they feel like it. It perfectly blends humor, gore, jump-scares, and campfire stories to create something outstanding.

Night of the Demons

classic halloween movies you should watch in october

When it comes to 80s horror films, few are as underrated as Night of the Demons. It takes place on Halloween night, has a party with drunken teenagers—taking place in a mortuary—it has a séance, there are bucketloads of gore, and a demon in the crematorium is set loose. This is the quintessential campy 80s horror movie.

The film has a respectable body count, and the performances are delightfully over-the-top. For those who like their horror with a touch of philosophy, Night of the Demons even has that. You could call it an allegory for teen promiscuity since people who get laid end up being possessed—kind of like the recent It Follows. Its sequels might not be as iconic, but Night of the Demons is a must-watch Halloween movie.

There’s nothing quite like turning off the lights for a horror movie on Halloween night. Go for something new and horrifying or a spooky old favorite. However, you normally feel about scary movies, you won’t go wrong with one of these classics this Halloween.

Did You Miss Them? See What Happened to The Cast of ‘Martin’!




In the 90s, Martin was one of those comedies you couldn’t afford to miss.

It was hilarious, well-acted, and had lots of heart.

The show wrapped up its run in 1997 but recently made its comeback.

Martin: The Reunion reunited the cast, now older and wiser.

The cast discussed how they got their catchphrases, how they knew each other, and if they were willing to do a reboot of the show.

That’s cool and all, but what happened to them between the end of Martin and now?

Let’s take a look.

Martin Lawrence

Let’s start with the most obvious one: the show’s star.

Martin Lawrence continued acting in films like:

  • Big Momma’s House
  • Bad Boys 2 & 3
  • Wild Hogs
  • Blue Streak
  • Life

But acting isn’t the only thing he’s been up to.

Martin also owns a farm in Virginia.

Tisha Campbell

Tisha Campbell also continued acting after the show.

She had minor roles in several TV shows for a couple of years.

But in 2001, she landed a leading role in My Wife & Kids and even won an NAACP award for her outstanding performance.

Since then, Campbell has had recurring roles in The Protector, Dr. Ken, and Rita Rocks.

Personally, she was married until 2020, when she finalized a divorce with her long-time husband, Duane Martin.

She also had beef with Martin Lawrence (which made her leave the show), but the two reconciled and are good now.

Payne also continued acting after the show ended.

He appeared on The Rickey Smiley Show, The Breaks, NYPD Blue, Step Up, and more.

But his most prominent role remains Martin.

Thomas Mikal Ford

Ford got a recurring role in The Parkers between 1999 and 2001 and had a memorable role in New York Undercover as Lieutenant Malcolm Barker.

Besides acting, Ford also wrote two inspirational books for kids: I Am Responsible for Me and Positive Attitude.

And he was married between 1997 and 2014 to Gina Sasso; they had two kids together.

Tragically, Ford passed away in 2016 from a ruptured abdominal aneurism.

Tichina Arnold

Other than Martin Lawrence and Tisha Campbell, Tichina Arnold has also had memorable roles in her career.

She played Rochelle in Everybody Hates Chris between 2005 and 2009.

She also starred in Happily Divorced, and Survivor’s Remorse and currently acts in The Neighborhood.

Jon Gries

Jon Gries only acted in the first two seasons of the show.

After that, he had minor roles in a wide range of TV shows and movies.

He even provided the voice for a video game, Hitman: Absolution.

Gries might not have had another memorable role, but he’s been in a ton of stuff you’ve probably watched.

Garrett Morris

Garrett Morris was among the most prominent names to join the cast of the show.

He is among the original cast of Saturday Night Live and had significant roles in:

  • The Jeffersons
  • The Jamie Foxx Show
  • Diff’rent Strokes
  • 227
  • 2 Broke Girls
  • Cooley High
  • Car Wash

Morris is an acting legend with a career that spans nearly six decades.

Remembering Martin: A Classic Sitcom

Martin is one of the greatest 90s sitcoms.

So, it’s great to see that most of the main cast is still working, even if not at their level.

And will the show be resurrected?

We hope so!

Our 7 Most Anticipated Movies of 2021

2021 feels like a breath of fresh air, compared to 2020. Vaccines have started rolling out around the world—meaning there is an end in sight to the pandemic—and a lot of the highly-anticipated films we didn’t watch in 2020 will come out this year.

You could be seeking blockbusters—this year will have numerous tentpoles—or indie films—Netflix alone has guaranteed to release a new movie every week this year. So, it’s a major year for cinephiles.

Here are some of the movies that should be on your watch list for the year. Let’s keep our masks on and hope that the cinematic road ahead is bright.

No Time To Die

The latest Bond film is also the last to feature Daniel Craig (unless he gets an offer he can’t refuse). It has received multiple delays, directors have changed, and cast members have been injured while filming. However, No Time To Die will finally hit theaters this year, though rumors have started circulating that it will get a further release from April 2nd to sometime in the fall.

The movie’s plot focuses on Bond searching for a kidnapped scientist. During his search, he encounters a mysterious villain wielding some dangerous new tech.

Coming 2 America

Eddie Murphy’s career is back on an upward trajectory, thanks in large part to the success of Dolemite Is My Name. So, we are naturally interested in Murphy’s next project, which happens to be a sequel to his most-loved film: Coming to America.

In the first film, Murphy plays Prince Akeem, an African prince who heads to the US in search of his future wife. The film packs everything we love about Eddie Murphy movies: a romantic arc, tons of humor, and Murphy playing multiple characters. If Coming 2 America is even half as good as the first one, it’s certain to be a success.

A Quiet Place Part II

2018’s A Quiet Place was a smash hit, so it’s no surprise that a sequel is on the way. Initially meant to come out in March 2020, it’s now been scheduled for April 2021.

The sequel follows the Abbott family as they adapt to a new life without the father. They are forced to venture beyond their home and look for people who can help them survive the monsters they faced in the first film. However, they soon learn that the monsters aren’t the only threat they should fear.


F9 is the ninth installment in the Fast & Furious franchise. Here, Dominic Toretto and his crew face the most skilled driver and assassin they have encountered to date: Dom’s brother, Jakob. Jakob has teamed up with Cipher, who was the main baddie in The Fate of the Furious.

The Fast & Furious franchise has never been one for subtleness. Judging by the bonkers trailer, the latest entry is going to be more ludicrous and action-packed than ever.


Dune is one of the most celebrated science fiction novels of all time. So, it makes sense that the upcoming movie adaptation is one of the most anticipated movies of the past few years. Alongside the popularity of the novel, the film has a revered director in Denis Villeneuve, and it boasts a stellar cast with everyone from Jason Momoa to Josh Brolin. Expectations are sky-high for Dune, and after Blade Runner 2049, we know the director can make something special.
Dune will come out on October 1st.

Mission: Impossible 7

The Mission: Impossible films aren’t just among the most popular and highest-grossing action films; they are also among the best-made. With each sequel, the movies get progressively better, with better action, higher stakes, and an ever-increasing bond with Ethan Hunt and his team.

The studio hasn’t released any details of the plot, but there’s little doubt it will be as bombastic as the rest. Here’s hoping it actually releases on its scheduled date, on November 19th.

The Matrix 4

What a time to be Keanu Reeves. His career stalled in the late 2000s, but then John Wick came out and his action-star status returned. The first three films have all been hits with both critics and audiences, to the extent that two more sequels are being produced. And that’s not all; Keanu Reeves has also returned to his most popular franchise: The Matrix.

We don’t know much about this latest entry, especially since Reeves’ character Neo died at the end. However, it’s sure to be an interesting movie for fans of the original trilogy.
