Spooky season is here again, and so is our tingling to get spooked. Scary and horror themed items sell best this time of the year and people look forward to bringing out the devil in them in the most entertaining and innovative way possible.
Apart from JackOLanterns, a hellish amount of candy and costume parties, horror movies add that extra spookiness which we weirdly tend to relish during Halloween.
More often than not, Halloween costumes are inspired by characters from horror movies. The holiday keeps the legacy of villains alive by giving fans a chance to dress up in the most gruesome way possible. And even if not for costumes, horror movies have a different aura about itself when viewed during Halloween. Although watching horror flicks alone is the best way to get the spooks, viewing with a group is fun too.

Caution- This is not a ranked list, it is simply a suggestive take to help you pick a movie while you make sure one more time that the doors are locked.
