The Halloween season offers hundreds of seasonal or seasonal-ish films from Friday the 13th part VII: The New Blood, Psycho IV: The Beginning, to Fred 2: Night of the Living Fred. So since no one could ever whittle down the many burnt Halloween offerings, I just had to throw out a few honorable mentions that could technically be watched any time of the year.
But wait- There's more BELOW\/\/\/\/
Young Frankenstein is another that is practically perfect in every way. Hilarious all year, but the incredible reproduction of the monster movie look/feel brings a regular October day to scary new heights (does that make sense? This movie good).
Plus! This movie has a comedy dreamcast- Gene Wilder, Cloris Leachman, Terri Garr, Marty Feldman, Peter Boyle, and Madeline Khan in Bride of Frankenstein hair! Ahh sweet mystery of life at last I've found you . . . ahhh at last I know the secret of it all . . .
Monster Squad! Like "Young Frankenstein" above it's just so monstery! And so 80's- perfect for Halloween!
Return of the Living Dead is great for reminding you that you should be as skinny as the zombie who comes out of the barrel. I always choke on my pizza when I see him!
