Today we have a selection of classical horror movies for the Halloween night. This is our special recipe for tonight. Have a great and special Halloween night!
Halloween (1978), by John Carpenter
Our friend John Carpenter directed, produced and scored the film. What to say about it? A classic of the cinema. Jamie Lee Curtis is simply great. There are many sequels but… nothing as the original Michael Myers. On the 31th of October of… Today?
The Night of the Hunter (1955)
This is the only film directed by Charles Laughton. He was great like an actor and he is lyrical, special and unique like filmmaker. If you haven’t watched it before, you have a special occasion tonight. Robert Mitchum in one of his best roles.
An American Werewolf in London (1981)
What to say about this classic? The transformation is impressive and it can be, still, watched by –almost- everybody. I think this film is even a little funny. I don’t know. Another good suggestion. Directed by John Landis. Staring: David Naughton and Jenny Agutter.
The Cabinet of Dr Caligari (1920)
It’s supposed it was directod by Robert Wienne –we can discuss this another time-. It’s a silent German expressionist movie. Maybe this is not for kids but… it’s a cultural poke!
My favorite: Dracula (1992)
What a film! Haven’t you watched before? It’s the right night to do it! Gary Oldman, Anthony Hopkins, Winona Ryder, need I say more? Well, the man with the beard is the director of Apocalypse Now. 3 Oscars winning.
The ring (2002), by Gore Verbinski
Ring, ring! You will die in seven days!
I love this movie! There is one moment when… no, I don’t want to tell the plot. With Naomi Watts. It’s based on a Japanese film but I prefer the version directed by Gore Verbinski (yes, the same of Pirates of the Caribbean)
We know we have forgotten many good films but, you know, there are many scaring days during the year. Have a very special Halloween night!
