day of the dead hands

The 1985 classic Day of the Dead is set to be remade (again!) for 2015. Thirty years ago, George Romero’s zombie flick was at the cutting edge in terms of special effects and certainly packed a few punches as far as scares were concerned. This is one gruesome gorefest that definitely had us all hiding under our duvets….in fact, I still do!

If you want to get set for the new release, you’ll want to make sure you’re prepared for the imminent zombie invasion, so get yourself a TV bed to hide from the scary monsters. In the meantime however, you can build up your courage by watching these spooky horror classics.

The Woman in Black (1989)

This one was so chilling that it was made into both a stage production and a movie remake in 2012. Arthur Kidd, an aspiring solicitor, is sent to a small coastal town to tie up the loose ends of a client who has recently passed away. However, all is not as it seems in this sleepy town when he has to stay in a house cut off from civilization. Soon, a mysterious figure begins to appear…could this be the dreaded Woman in Black?

Psycho (1960)

This classic Hitchcock thriller is enough to stop anybody from taking a shower ever again. Telling the story of Marion Crane, a young secretary who runs off with $40,000 of her boss’ money, Psycho gave Anthony Perkins his most famous role: Norman Bates. Motel owner Bates is not all he seems, and has a frightening obsession with his mother, which leads him to do the unspeakable.

House on the Haunted Hill (1959)

This frightening 1959 B movie saw Vincent Price in one of his most frightening roles, bar narrating on Michael Jackson’s Thriller, of course. The film tells the story of a group of  people who are offered $10,000 to stay one evening in a haunted house. Of course, the house has a frightening past, and things soon turn out to have spooky results…


The Exorcist

What movie could be scarier to watch under the covers than one which was banned in so many countries? Perhaps the most frightening facet of The Exorcist was the mysterious series of deaths to the cast and crew after it was made, but the storyline was pretty frightening too. It told the story of a normal girl who found herself being possessed by the devil, with results which shocked the world.
