Without a doubt, another film that will give you many ideas to have an original costume this Halloween.
In a 19th century European village, this frame-by-frame animated film tells the story of Victor, a young Jewish man, who is suddenly taken to hell to marry a mysterious "corpse bride", while his real girlfriend Victoria waits in the world of the living.
HALLOWEEN (1978), JOHN CARPENTER
The first Halloween movie marks the beginning of the slasher tapes and the appearance of Michael Myers in seven other sequels and two reboots. This film is also the one that introduces Jamie Lee Curtis, when his character, Laurie Stroodie, is still a teenage babysitter who fights for her life and that of the children she has to take care of on Halloween night.
HALLOWEEN (2018), DAVID GORDON GREEN
In the film, Michael Myers is admitted to a mental hospital after murdering his older sister on Halloween. Years later he escapes and seeks to kill the man who became his staunch rival, Laurie Stroodie, played by Jamie Lee Curtis. This Halloween movie is the last in the franchise, thus far, but also one of our favorites.
TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE (1974)
The Texas Chain Saw Massacre defied all the conventions of cinema in its time and the truth is that it remains one of the scariest films in history. It tells the story of a group of young people who come to a ranch on vacation and never leave.
IT (2017), ANDRÉS MUSCHIETTI
Although this film is not set at this time of year, it does become a reference for movies that you should see on Halloween, both because of the terror caused by seeing an alien clown devour and float children, and because of the autumn atmosphere that you surely noticed. in your color palette. With a cast that empowers this version, including Finn Wolfhard, Bill Skarsgård and Jack Dylan Grazer, the IT of 2017 owes nothing to the film of 1990.
THE SHINNING (1980), STEVEN KING
Besides being terrifying, The Shining is a masterpiece. Stanley Kubrick made the whole world tremble with the experiences of a family in an abandoned hotel.
