2017 Horror Films For This Halloween

My favourite time of year is here.

Autumn is the official lead-up to Halloween, and this year I’m hoping to make you fall in love with it like I do.

Pumpkins, face paint, thrills and an uncontrollable amount of sweets and chocolate on discount ready for purchase. The perfect excuse to get dressed up. And celebrate everything scary.

              Who wouldn’t love Halloween?…


If going out on the 31st doesn’t appeal to you, and you’d rather have a cosy night in with drinks and good company, then don’t worry and stick around – we have the most popular 2017 Horror Films ready for you.

You might just need some inspiration for Halloween itself, and this list can help you with that too:


IT: Chapter 1

Possibly one of the most talked about horror films this year, and maybe also the most mimicked with the amount of vines produced from it…

If you haven’t heard of IT, then where have you been all summer?

I went to see it a few weeks ago, and its safe to say that being in the company of my ‘brave, masculine’ boyfriend made no difference whatsoever – considering he was more scared throughout…

Hate clowns? Perfect film. Get scared easily? Perfect film.



WOOOOWWW. This film blew my brain a little bit. This is the perfect film for those of you who may love to put the pieces together as the film goes on.

With an interracial relationship being the main focus throughout the film, “as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead Chris to a truth that he could have never imagined”.

This. Is great.


Annabelle: The Creation:

Following from ‘The Conjuring’ Annabelle is based on the everlasting theme of a ‘Haunted Doll’. Based around the true events of Ed and Lorraine Warren, paranormal investigators in 1950’s.

If you’re looking for a film to make you jump, and do everything a typical horror does then this is the one for you.

Hopefully you wont get brainwashed into thinking every doll is a Annabelle doll.



The eighth and final (for now?) instalment in the Saw franchise brings back the main man himself to finish off what he started.

If you haven’t, I highly recommend all the Saw films – and what other perfect opportunity to pull an all – nighter on the scariest night itself.

A lot of blood, a lot of torture based scenes, a lot of what you would expect from a Saw film.



A supernatural psychological horror film which follows from the two previous films. Based on a cursed videotape, ‘Rings’ explores the history behind the theory and tape itself – why people die after watching it. I would suggest watching the other two first to gain more knowledge on the plot. However, it’s not a necessity as I’m sure 5 minutes in, you’ll get the jist.

Will you survive the pressure of watching of Rings?
