A Night for Terror

With Halloween just around the corner, I've been looking to get myself ramped up for all the excitement.  With that in mind, I've been searching for horror movies not only to watch now, but to find a few to put together a horror movie marathon which I usually do every Halloween night.  While looking for suggestions for new horrors I haven't seen before, I cam upon this website, Hunch.com.

This website is pretty cool, basically it will ask you a few questions about your preferences in whatever movie genre, and then make a list of suggestions for you based on highly rated movies fitting your criteria.  After answering the questions for the horror genre, I came upon my own personalized list, and to my surprise, there were plenty of movies on the list I have never heard of.  Here's just a few that were suggested to me that I haven't heard of and plan on checking out in the upcoming weeks:

Deadgirl

After skipping school and breaking into the boiler room of a deserted mental hospital, buddies Rickie (Shiloh Fernandez) and JT (Noah Segan) make a shocking discovery: the plastic-covered naked body of a woman lying on a gurney. When they realize that the woman may be alive, JT shocks Rickie by suggesting they take advantage of her. But all is not as it seems in this dark thriller: The door to the boiler room had been rusted shut for years.

The Uninvited

Committed to a mental hospital after her mother's tragic death, grieving teenager Anna (Emily Browning) discovers upon her release that her father (David Strathairn) plans to marry his deceased wife's former nurse (Elizabeth Banks), a woman who might not have the best intentions. But foreboding warnings from her mother's ghost only cement Anna's suspicions in this remake of the 2003 Korean chiller Janghwa, Hongryeon.



Trick 'r Treat

In writer-director Michael Dougherty's fright fest, Halloween's usually boisterous traditions turn deadly, and everyone in a small town tries to survive one night in pure hell … but who will still be alive in the morning? Several stories weave together, including a loner fending off a demented trick-or-treater's attacks; kids uncovering a freaky secret; a school principal -- who moonlights as a serial killer -- poisoning his candy; and more.
