We love Halloween. From fancy dress parties and trick or treating to pumpkin carving and festive foods, it has something fun for everyone to enjoy.It's also the spookiest time of year, when goblins, ghosts, witches and monsters roam the streets. And what better way to celebrate the scary side of Halloween then by watching a classic horror movie.To get you into the Halloween spirit, here's our favourite scary movies to tap into some of your greatest fears!Charlotte - Dracula For my own sanity, I made a promise to myself to not watch scary films anymore! So, mine isn't THAT scary.My favourite scary film is Bram Stoker's Dracula. I only saw it for the first time recently, but it immediately surpassed all other scary movies for me. It's the Moulin Rouge of horror films - theatrics, romance, and a hint of eeriness. It also has an amazing cast, including Gary Oldman, Anthony Hopkins, Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves with a questionable English accent... Ashley – Silence of the LambsMy favourite/worst scary movie of all time is 'Silence of the Lambs'! I will forever be haunted by the brain scene where Hannibal feeds Krendler his last meal, a portion of his brain.Because of this movie, and that particular scene, I cannot watch Anthony Hopkins in any other role without getting totally freaked out. John - Masters of the Universe This isn't a scary movie, but the villain used to scare the bejesus out of me when I was a little boy. If you're not familiar with Masters of the Universe, it's the big-screen version of He-Man. If you're not familiar with He-Man, then have a look for the latest Money Supermarket ad and then you'll get me.Anyway, the baddie is called Skeletor and he's played in the film by Frank Langella. An oiled-up, sword-wielding, pants-wearing Dolph Lundgren plays He-Man and they battle for a place called Eternia. He-Man is helped in his quest by Courtney Cox and the bald fella who was in every movie in the 80s is also in it. You know the one I mean. He's also the teacher in Back to the Future. Mr Strickland? Think he might be in Top Gun too.Sorry, I'm rambling. The reason I'm picking this is because of Skeletor's face. I had the poster on my bedroom wall when I was a kid - He-Man on one side, boney boy on the other. I had to get my da to cut Skeletor out of the picture because it freaked me out when I woke up in the middle of the night, which I did often.That's it really. I don't like scary movies. All because of you, Skeletor.Claire H. – The ShiningThe Shining has to be one of the most horrifying movies of all time. It has all the elements of a good horror movie – including the scary little ghost twins, a hallway of blood, haunting background music and the infamous 'Here's Johnny' scene.Scary movies today aren't as memorable and are all about shock effect or gore. Stanley Kubrick definitely made a classic that all scary movie lovers can point to and say that was absolutely terrifying.Natalie – Scary MovieThis might be a complete cop out but, because I don't really enjoy being scared, but I'm going to go with the Scary Movie series (I think there are like five of them now?)I prefer laughing so parodies of scary movies are much more entertaining for me. Even if some consider the films made in bad taste, they're a much lighter-hearted way to enjoy horror without never being able to sleep again.Claire B. – Hocus Pocus​It's not really a 'scary' movie but my favourite Halloween movie is definitely Hocus Pocus.In addition to featuring some mega stars (hello, Sarah Jessica Parker and Bette Midler), the movie packs in a load of witty one-liners, spooky thrills and an awesome soundtrack!
