My wife and I have been doing a Halloween movie marathon for years now. I know there must be other MSTies that do this as well. So, lets see what you’ve got! Post the movies that you’re watching this spooky season here and we’ll compare notes.
Tonight’s movie is Talk to Me 
Teens messing around with the supernatural get more than they can handle. A nice twist on the “Don’t mess with Ouija boards” premise, good acting, decent FX. Builds tension until the end, some effective scares. The ending is a bit bleak, but I don’t mind that.
I’m generally a lurker and not a poster, but this is something we do every year. To kick off our movie month this weekend we opened with two classics, Night of the Living Dead, and Evil Dead. Both excellent, and Evil Dead especially is an all-time favorite of mine. Today we also checked out Sea Fever on Shudder. That was just okay, but overall disappointing, and not one I would recommend. I’m looking forward to seeing what other people are watching this month.
Oh, wonderful! That’s my second-favorite movie of all-time, after Jaws !
Between that and Evil Dead, you picked an excellent way to kick off spooky movie month!
That being the case, we’re glad that you contributed to this thread. And I’d certainly love to hear your thoughts on other such movies during this month, as well as anything else you’d like to contribute around the place, should you decide to do so. Cheers, thank you, and all the best!

Right now, I’m finishing up a rewatch of Red Dragon.
It can’t possibly hold a candle to the Michael Mann original Manhunter or The Silence of the Lambs or even Hannibal, but the cast is pretty damn good in this (with special nods to Emily Watson and Harvey Keitel and posthumous props to the great Philip Seymour Hoffman).
My Halloween tradition is watching the original Night of the Living Dead. No Halloween is complete without such a viewing.
There’s a bunch of other stuff I like to watch during the month - Romero’s other zombie material, Disney Halloween cartoons, the OG Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, John Carpenter’s The Thing, etc - but Night of the Living Dead is an absolute must.
Same, which means we mostly stick to older stuff. Evil wins more than enough in real life.
We load up our October with as many spooky movies as we can. Lots of Hammer Horror and classic Universal, but also Paranorman, Sleepy Hollow, Young Frankenstein, and lots of old Scooby-Doo. We have a double-feature one night of the original Dracula, followed immediately by Dracula: Dead and Loving It. Then on or as close to Halloween we can get we watch Hocus Pocus and, once it gets dark, Fright Night.
We usually run out of days before we run out of movies.
