If you are one of those – like me – who prefers sitting at home during Halloween and eating all the sweets while watching some horror movies. Then I have a small list for you, they are some of my favourites and we got something for all. Gore, jump scares, psychological, found footage.
**THIS LIST IS NOT A OFFICIAL LIST – IT’S WHAT I AM LIKING AT THE MOMENT. THE MOVIES ARE IN NO SPECIFIC ORDER**

The Purge; Triology (2013, 2014, 2016)
This slasher is set in a different America where all crimes including murder is legal for 12H! In all three films we meet different people in different situations during the night of The Purge. But some actors pop up during all three films. Like in the first film when a kid saves a homeless man from being murdering during Purge – he comes up in the other films too with more lines and steady role.
Doom movie is based on the video game Doom. Myself have never played the video game but the film is mediocre but fits the Halloween night. A group of space marines (Yep) gets the mission of investigating a strange events on a research facility on Mars but something has happened and the scientist disappeared but no sign of them leaving. But… there is something living there that no one could foresee!

Hush is a very thrilling movie and it keeps you on suspense at all times.
This film is on my every Halloween horror list. It’s a Norwegian horror so subtitles will be needed if you don’t understand Norwegian remember to have those on.
