The Nightmare Before Christmas -Tim Burton 🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃 5/5
Halloweentown’s beloved Pumpkin King Jack Skellington has become bored with the same routine of frightening people. Jack accidentally comes upon Christmastown, a cold but warm-spirited place, where he finds a different calling to his annual routine. He then plots to bring Christmas under his power by kidnapping Santa Claus and taking over his role.
I watch this movie every year and it never gets old. It is great for families, rated PG. There are no jump outs scenes to scare you, making it a perfect movie for the family. I give this clay animation musical 5/5 pumpkins because it will take you to a different world!
The Conjuring -James Wan 🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃 5/5
In this movie based in 1970, the Perrons and their five daughters move into a secluded farmhouse where a supernatural presence has made itself known. Though the appearances are non-threatening at first, they soon go to extreme, especially after the Warrens discover the house's horrid history.
This movie is definitely one of my favorites. Being rated R only for it’s terror, I would say this is one movie you would want to watch with all the lights out and a bowl of popcorn. I give this movie 5/5 pumpkins due to the factor that it is truly chill bump worthy.
The Nightmare on Elm Street -Wes Craven🎃🎃2/5
In this 1984 supernatural slasher film, teenagers fall prey to Freddy Krueger, a disfigured midnight mangler who preys on teenagers in their dreams- which, in turn, kills them in reality. After investigating the phenomenon, the main character begins to suspect that a dark secret kept by her and her friends may be the key to solving the mystery before it’s too late.
I enjoy this movie, but I have seen better. The acting and animation throughout the movie is old and outdated, causing the quality of the story to seem bad. If you’re looking for a classic to watch, I recommend this, but for a good scare, I give 2/5 pumpkins.
Scream -Wes Craven🎃🎃🎃 3/5
The town of Woodsboro wakes up “screaming.” A killer is in their midst who has gone on a killing spree. Nobody is safe, as the psychopath stalks victims, taunts them with trivia from scary movies, then rips them to bloody shreds if their answer ends up being right or wrong.
This movie is really good! Due to the year it came out, the acting and special effects could be better. If you are looking for a blood and gore movie that is a classic horror film, I give this movie 3/5 pumpkins.
SAW -James Wan🎃🎃🎃🎃4/5
Regaining consciousness while chained to pipes at each end of a filthy bathroom, two men realize they've been trapped by a sadistic serial killer nicknamed "Jigsaw”. They must complete difficult mind games to remain alive. Meanwhile one man's wife and young daughter are forced to watch his torture through a closed-circuit video.
SAW is a great movie if you’re looking for suspense, traps, torment, blood, and twist endings. This movie had me on my toes the entire time waiting to see what would happen. I would watch this movie easily again leaving it with the rate 4/5 pumpkins.
