Top Ten Books/Movies To Read Or Watch To Get In The Halloween Spirit

My favourite time of the year is near! I absolutely love Halloween! I have many Halloween traditions and of course I have many favourite books and movies I turn to, to get in the Halloween spirit. I am splitting up this week's Top 10 into 2 groups of 5. Top 5 Halloween/Horror movies and Top 5 Halloween reads.

Top 5 Books to Get in the Halloween Spirit

The Shining

A perfect ghost story to kick off the best part of the season!


Another King classic that pairs the paranormal together with a heart-wrenching story.

Dark Harvest

*Shudders* Just damn right terrifying! 


A great way to build up suspense for the grand finale!

The Exorcist

If you think the movie was scary then you ain't seen nothing yet!

Top 5 Movies to Get in the Halloween Spirit

Hocus Pocus

A MUST for every year!


Another tame but family favourite but one that I still can't resist! 

The Amityville Horror
(Original 1979 version)

Absolutely terrifying! This is a 'Can't sleep without a light on" kinda movie! And of course it has to be the original. The remake was good(because of a very shirtless Ryan Reynolds) but nothing stands up to this one!


Um ya, just freakin' scary! 

The Blair Witch Project

I saw this movie when I was 11 years old in the theatre. It scared the bejezeus right out of me! It has remained a favourite of mine for both the nostalgia and the horror movie factor.

Remember when it first came out there was all that hype about it being real? Ya, that stopped me from walking near the woods for a very long time!

I can't wait to see what is one your list! Please link your post in the comments so I can add to my Halloween book/movie collection!

Happy Halloween!

  1. I really want to read Ten. Great list! I decided to list book characters I'd dress up as for Halloween, but my favorite creepy book is The Devouring by Simon Holt. Happy Halloween!

  2. Definitely Stephen King books! And Insidious is VERY creepy! I couldn't get scared by The Blair Witch Project because I was too busy not looking at the screen so I didn't get sick and throw up. I can't do those kind of hand held camera movies. I know that's how the camera would move when people are doing that kind of stuff in real life, but it's not how we see when we're running, our eyes can fix it for us, so my brain just can't handle that. But I hear it was really scary if you could watch it! Great lists!
    Check out my Top 10.

  3. Hocus Pocus! Could easily be on everyone's must see Halloween Movies. Because it's just that amazing! I haven't read any of the books, not a huge fan of scary books or movies!

  5. I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.
