    13 Horror Movies To Watch This October

    It's October and you know what that means - it's time to get spooky! Here's 12 movies to watch this month.

    Get Out (2017)


    "This socially aware scary movie takes you by surprise, setting the scene for a slasher flick that's a ticking timebomb. And then, ka-boom."

    -Peter Travers for Rolling Stone

    The Babadook (2014)


    "You will be scared. And also, perhaps even more scarily, moved." -A. O. Scott

    for The NYTimes

    It (2017)


    "Focusing entirely on the childhood-set portions of King's book, it's a collection of alternately terrifying, hallucinatory, and ludicrous nightmare imagery." -Andrew Barker for Variety

    Hereditary (2018)


    "Hereditary raises the bar on emotional agony. If you want to see things you can never un-see and feel pain you can never un-feel, here’s the ultimate test." -David Edelstein for Vulture

    Sinister (2012)


    "Derrickson's film succeeds in delivering an exceptionally engaging, and frightening, movie experience with quality characters, a smart story, and plenty of scares." -Ben Kendrick for Screen Rant

    Oculus (2013)


    "Creepy mirrors have been featured in horror movies plenty of times before, but none of them have been anything quite like 'Oculus'." -Jeffrey M. Anderson for Common Sense Media

    Insidious (2010)


    "Insidious is a haunted-house movie that has some of the most shivery and indelible images I’ve seen in any horror film in decades. Yes, it’s that unsettling."

    -Owen Gleiberman for Entertainment Weekly

    The Conjuring (2013)


    "This horror film provides a treasure trove of typical haunting tricks that seems fresh and terrifying once again." -Jeffrey M. Anderson for Common Sense Media

    We Need To Talk About Kevin (2011)


    "A triumph for Ramsay — though no easy watch — anchored by terrific performances. Guaranteed to haunt you for days, and possibly prompt a rethink on your position on parenthood." -Liz Beardsworth for Empire

    Creep (2014)


    "The film is remarkable, considering its minimal means and surprising lack of bloodshed, given the genre. Does it stay with you? A little." -Andy Webster

    for The New York Times

    mother! (2017)


    "A difficult film and one that's likely to offend in some ways. But as an elliptical, dream-logic infused visual poem, it certainly leaves a searing impression." -Dan Jolin for Empire

    A Quiet Place (2018)


    "This gripping, clever monster movie is one of those rare genre treats that seizes on a simple, unique idea and executes it so perfectly and concisely that it elicits satisfying squeals of delight." -Jeffrey M. Anderson from Common Sense Media

    The Visit (2015)


    "In The Visit, M. Night Shyamalan has gone back to basics, with a stripped-down story and scale, a largely unknown (excellent) cast and a classically tinged tale of child peril." -Manohla Dargis for The NYTimes
