scary movies for halloween part 2

Some more recommendations for films to enjoy during the creepiest month of the year….

Salem’s Lot (1979)

Based on Stephen King’s novel,  Tobe Hooper’s TV-movie benefits from a strong cast and a thick atmosphere. The first hour is a masterclass in building tension and eliciting fear.

Prince of Darkness (1987)

Carpenter traps a cross-section of society in an abandoned church with Satan’s father. Criminally under-rated and expertly directed, the film’s finale is out of this world. You’ll never look at a mirror in the same way again…..

Alice, Sweet Alice (1977)

Unsettling in content, this eerie slasher film is too often mistaken as a rip-off of the classic Don’t Look Now (1973).   Far more brutal than that movie, switch off the lights and see if you can watch the raincoat-wearing killer scamper around the screen….
