Here are Ben’s Halloween film favourites:

CABIN IN THE WOODS

Okay, usually a group of friends going to some cabin in the woods in the middle of nowhere leads to serial killers, flesh eating diseases or zombies.  In this case, don’t judge a book by its cover. The Cabin In The Woods is the most original scary film I’ve seen in a while.

!WARNING SPOILERS!

Now I’ve been waiting for this movie to finally come out and oh my god! Its just beautiful, the story was phenomenal!  Whoever wrote it up is a  genius! The zombies wielding weapons were sweet, it made them more terrifying. I thought for sure when that girl was making out with that wolf head that it was going to start snapping at her face lol.  The fact that the “Fool” of the group was able to survive with the “Virgin” is crazy. The ending of it all was really a WTF moment, it seems that all at the same times humans began to not fear the monsters they were facing. Thus leading to no blood being spilled and evil gods rising from underground to end the world.  I especially loved how these locations around the world all had the same thing going on. The Tokyo location was so funny, with the little Asian girls freeing the evil ghost was a classic. When they found there way down to the control room with all those “mythical” monsters, I was sooooo into it. I knew all along that Unicorns were evil, and the Left For Dead Boomer was great! This movie will always be on my Halloween Movie List. If you have not seen it you must! It was released on DVD Sept. 26. WATCH IT, for you will not be disappointed!

“TRICK ‘R TREAT”

Now if you haven’t seen “Trick ‘r Treat” you are definitely missing out. You might as well start digging your own grave……I’m kidding. “Trick ‘r Treat” is one of those movies that should have been in theaters but someone made a shit call and it didn’t make it. Which is quite strange seeing as how Warner Bros. has their name on it.

This movie will give you a thirst for Halloween. The way the movie connects different people in its story was beautifully done.

!SPOILERS ALERT!

ALRIGHTY THEN! Lets get started. Trick ‘r Treat picks up on every feeling you get from Halloween, the cryptic, awestruck stories left me wanting for more. The story about the bus of mentally challenged kids, the pack of werewolves (Very sexy by the way), the school principal with skeletons under his garden more then his closet., and the old man that hates Halloween. All these stories come together and give us an ending that leaves you cheering for more. Of course you can forget about the spirit of Halloween itself…Sam. Who kills anyone that doesn’t celebrate Halloween as it should be celebrated.  So when Halloween swings around give out candy, don’t blow out the Jack O’Lanterns, or pit away decorations until the night is over, if you want to live. Watching this movie with my family has become a tradition in starting our October mischief. SO if you have not seen it I suggest you go out and get it before Sam come knocking at your door this coming  Halloween night.

INSIDIOUS

If your looking for a movie that will get you paranoid, make you fear a dark room or a narrow hallway, then INSIDIOUS is the one for you. I’m not one that’s easily scared by horror movies, but damn it this one will do it to me everytime. Not only is the storyline of this movie freaky but the BGM they use in it will make you want to close your eyes.

!WARNING SPOILERS!

INSIDIOUS a movie about a boy who by mistake gets his soul/spirit trapped in another dimension. This dimension is where restless, evil entities dwell and wait to take control over the boy’s body. Creepy faces and intense moments fill the atmosphere of the movie. Unexpected screams and shadows will force a blanket over your head lol. I watched this movie with my two siblings and a friend in the dark, and may I just say I did not want to get up from my comfy spot on the couch hidden between two pillows. This movie will put a scare in you. I will not go into further details because if you have not seen it and are still reading, I WILL NOT ruin this movie for you. INSIDIOUS is filled with scares that anyone will want this October, but be careful. Watching this movie alone or even in the dark with friends will seriously play tricks with your mind. You’ve been warned.

 PARANORMAL ENTITY

Oh my god! Why wasn’t this movie in theaters? I personally believe this movie is one hundred times better then the Paranormal Activity franchise. We have all seen Paranormal Activity I’m assuming and we all know how long it takes for the action to actually start. Paranormal Entity pretty much starts right away, and the events taking place are more intense then Paranormal Activity. My brother and I always argue over which one is better and I honestly can’t see how someone can choose P.A over P.E.

!SPOILERS!

 Paranormal Entity starts off with a family of three, mom, bro and sis with a recently deceased father. This whole ideal starts when their mom felt like she made contact with her dead husband unaware that she has contacted something more malevolent. The whole feeling of the movie changes rapidly as it progresses, Toms sister Sam being tormented by “Maron” a name the entity calls itself. The being takes control of the mother quite often but doesn’t seem to really try to affect Tom, thus leaving Tom to dig deeper into this evil. Paranormal Entity will have you looking over your shoulder as you walk around your home. I saw it in the daytime and afterwards I felt like something was watching me. This movie has way more action in it, and if you like Paranormal Activity you will LOVE Paranormal Entity. I guarantee it!!!
