Halloween is just around the corner, which means it’s a great time to check out some seriously spooky movies! If you enjoy being scared, there are excellent titles at the box-office this year to deliver a delightful fright. (Note: check ratings because some of these films are definitely not for children!)

These three thrillers are hitting theaters on October 21, 2016:

31 – There are certain settings that bring out the chills—and carnivals are a prime example. This film follows five carnies (carnival workers) who are kidnapped on October 31, 1976 and held hostage in a remote industrial area. Unable to escape, they are forced to play 31, a violent game that will determine whether they will make it out alive or be subjected to the abuse of a gang of maniacs. (Skip this one if you don’t like violence.)

Boo! A Madea Halloween -If you aren’t into gore you may want to choose something a little tamer, like this film, which is as likely to generate giggles as gasps. We’ve seen Madea take on many different situations but we’ve never seen her quite like this. Madea will have you laughing as she fights off paranormal poltergeists, ghosts, ghouls, zombies, and even a group of killers — while somehow managing to also keep an eye on a group of local teenagers. Halloween doesn’t have to be all about the scares, and this movie will provide more of a treat than a trick!

Ouija: Origin of Evil – In 2014, Ouija took audiences by storm and won a top spot at movie box-offices. Now, the sequel is back to give us a glimpse at the origins of the spirit board. The plot unfolds in 1965 as a widowed mother and her two daughters run a seance scam business in Los Angeles. In an attempt to take things to the next level, they incorporate the Ouija board into their stunts and end up learning some very valuable lessons about respecting the power of evil.

Of course, you don’t have to go to the theater to see great Halloween classics. Pop some popcorn, grab some treats, and snuggle into your couch to enjoy some of these great films:

  • Halloween
  • Friday the 13th
  • A Nightmare on Elm Street
  • The Fog
  • Scream
  • The Sixth Sense

Halloween is such a fun time to watch a films. What’s your favorite scary movie? Are you looking forward to any new releases, or do you avoid the creepy titles?
