A Halloween Night-In: Our Scary movie picks.

With Halloween just around the corner, we’re going to give you our top pick scary movies for the perfect Halloween night-in! As well as films, we’ve got a great range of home cinema accessories to really make the most of your evening. Whether you’ve got plans or not, a movie night is always a great way to celebrate the lead up to Halloween or on the day itself.

Our Picks:

The Corpse Bride: 

Starting with a family classic, ‘The Corpse Bride’. A Tim Burton Halloween classic, following the life of Victor, who unwittingly ‘marries’ himself to a deceased woman while practising his vows the night before his wedding. This film gives you Halloween spookiness with the added bonus you can watch with the whole family!

Scream:

Up next is the 90’s cult classic: ‘Scream’. Years after the murder of her mother, a high schooler and her friends are terrorised by a masked killer. A scary movie with all the teen drama for this American teen flick.

Halloween:

Of course, it wouldn’t be a spooky season movie marathon without mentioning this one. ‘Halloween’, killer Mike Myers escapes an institution to return to his hometown to reap gory havoc.

Shaun of Dead:

Need more laughter in your Halloween films? ‘Shaun of the Dead’ is the perfect combo of gore and laughs. The film follows Shaun and his friends as they navigate the struggles of a zombie apocalypse.

Ghostbusters:

Throwing it back with an 80’s classic. A family fun film about a team dedicated to ridding people of their poltergeist issues. ‘Ghostbusters’ is a lighthearted look at the world of the supernatural.

A Projector

Home cinema essential number one is a projector. Elevate your scary movie night with the PHILIPS NeoPix Easy NPX440 Mini Projector. Making the night all the more scary when it spans the entire wall!

A Sound Bar

The next movie night essential is a sound system. The LOGIK L32SBT17 2.0 Sound Bar is a low-cost option that will help boost your sound. Meaning those scary movie jump-scares will be even worse!
