This movie is truly original because as is a compilation of five different creative stories rolled into one movie. We don’t see many anthology movies these days. One is about a man who is killed on the father’s day and haunts his decedents. The second is about a farmer who discovers a meteor which engulfs everything including him and plants. The third is about a psychopath who tortures a couple on a beach. The fourth is about a wooden crate which has some kind of a monster in it, and the last features creepy crawly bugs.

We won’t spoil the rest of the story line, but you’re guaranteed to love the shocking ending.

This 80s movie is an absolute classic. Set in an average suburban neighbourhood, the film follows a terrifying villain who haunts the teenagers of Elm Street in their dreams. When one teenage girl starts to suspect the cause of these murders nobody believes her, so it is up to her to end Freddy’s reign. This movie is a ton of fun to watch, but might make you afraid to fall asleep!

It has a lot of the elements that make a really fantastic horror film. It has got humour, it is campy, scary with a very tongue-in-cheek approach to itself which makes the movie incredibly enjoyable. Dealing with a gypsy curse, demons and nightmares makes this movie a little bit different to a lot of the straight horror flicks out there. But with all the jump scaring techniques used, the film has all the right building blocks to make this movie perfect to watch with friends!
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

We are going to go ahead and recommend the entire evil dead series as number eight in this list. Yes all of them. Even the remake is worth the watch. The original has Sam Raimi’s charm which can never be duplicated, but all these movies are good in their own right. At this time of year, watching the evil dead series all over again even though you have watched it a zillion times, will still keep you entertained. But be warned – if you haven’t seen them before, they are definitely gruesome.
