Halloween brings with it pumpkin carving, dressing up in costume, and just maybe — if you're lucky enough — trick or treating. It's also the time that television is filled with scary movies and TV specials, ranging from family fare like It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (personal fave), to classics both old and new that provide the chills no matter how old you are. Luckily, there will be Halloween movies airing every single night on TV leading up to the big day — so check back day for an update!

One of the earliest entries in the slasher/slice-and-dice horror film genre, and by all estimates still considered something of a classic.

Flash forward to 1978 and he manages to escape, returning to his Illinois town, and beginning to claim new victims.

An Alfred Hitchcock classic, this is considered to be the first true slasher film, that reputation earned by the famous shower sequence in which Janet Leigh's Marion Crane is mercilessly slaughtered with a kitchen knife while showering in the motel she checked into. But that's only part of what this one has to offer, as it explores Anthony Perkins' Norman Bates and his "relationship" with his mother. Definitely has a huge creep out factor. Spawned three sequels and the prequel television series Bates Motel. Released in 1960.

After a deadly outbreak occurs in New Orelans, the SEALS must fight for their lives, and the city, against an army of zombies."

We applaud the idea of a brother and sister wanting to spend time together by driving home for spring break from school. What we're not so crazy about is that fact that to do so they choose to drive through…wait for it…isolated countryside. And wouldn’t you know it, en route they run across a number of flesh-eating creatures who are looking for a meal.
