Every single one of us do have this kind 0f list of favorite movies of all time. From those romantic, comedy, adrenaline pumping thriller, suspense and horror movies.
Since Halloween 2012 is fast approaching, I am starting to gather up list of possible movies that are already in DVDs that me and my family can watch at home. As we all know, here in the Philippines, we don’t do much of those Halloween decorations, pumpkin carvings and even kid’s trick or treat stuffs wearing their awesome Halloween costumes (although in some places, they are already practicing it). What me and my family regularly do when Halloween season or month comes, is we share some horror stories (story telling between the family members) and watch horror movies together. We do this kind of horror movie marathon almost every year after supper is done and most of the time, we start this kind of family fun when the month of October comes.
Below, you will find my very own list of 8 horror movies that you might find interesting to watch as well with your family, friends or relatives. Here it is.
This horror film is a real mind shocker and nerve popper. Insidious is one of the best psychological horror film I ever watched in my entire life. The effects is great, the entities looks realistic and even the make up and graphic or visual effects is superb.

2). The Rite
Anthony Hopkins at this horrifying film is one of the many reasons to watch this movie. His acting at this heart pounding film is above a A+ for me.
The Rite Storyline Via IMDB
Michael, the son of a funeral director grows indifferent to his father and joins a Seminary. On his way to the course completion, he is overwhelmed by a strong lack of faith. His religious beliefs are further jolted when he sees a young girl haplessly dying in a road accident for whom he reluctantly performs the ritual to absolve her sins. His mentor still believes in him and urges him to go to Italy to take an exorcism course hoping that he it would strengthen his faith in Christianity. In Italy he attends a session from Father Xavier who soon becomes aware of his skepticism. As a result he sends him to an eminent Jesuit exorcist, Father Lucas, whose ways though questionable are quite effective. He witnesses the exorcism of a sixteen year old girl but still seems unconvinced. Father Lucas explains to him that it takes multiple sessions over a long stretch of time to completely free a victim from the demon.

5) 30 Days of Night
An action pack vampire (not the Twilight type of vampires I must say) infested movie perfect for Halloween. This film is a good one for those people (like me) who loves to watch a mix up of horror and suspense with action pack thrilling scenes.

6). Dawn of the Dead (2004 Film)
This movie (2004) version of the Dawn of the Dead film added a lot of suspense, thriller and excitement compared to the older (1978) version. The acting is great and the zombies are much more realistic and shockingly horrifying.

7). 28 Days Later
A zombie film with great heart jumping scenes. If you love some horror film with gore scenes, this one is for you. The beginning of this film might be a bit slow showing some deserted streets and buildings, but trust me, if you haven’t seen this film yet (which I doubt), you will agree with me that this one deserves a spot at my very own list.
28 Days Later Story Line Via IMDB

The naive activists ignore the pleas of a scientist to keep the cages locked, with disastrous results. Twenty-eight days later, our protagonist, Jim, wakes up from a coma, alone, in an abandoned hospital. He begins to seek out anyone else to find London is deserted, apparently without a living soul. After finding a church, which had become inhabited by zombie like humans intent on his demise, he runs for his life. Selena and Mark rescue him from the horde and bring him up to date on the mass carnage and horror as all of London tore itself apart. This is a tale of survival and ultimately, heroics, with nice subtext about mankind’s savage nature.
