Must See B-Horror Movies For Halloween!

tumblr_lb6pick7gw1qz9upvo1_500

 

With Halloween a little over a week away (by a day), I thought it would be great to highlight this spooky holiday with showcasing some of my all time favorite cheestastic B-Horror movies that will get you in the mood for the Halloween season. Also they’re perfect to watch all year round! When I was a wee little KT, I was addicted to watching bad horror movies. Some of these are true B-Horror movie classics that I have probably watched so many times because I can’t get enough of them! Also, most listed here are free to watch on You Tube.

Night of the Creeps from 1986: Alien brain parasites, entering humans through the mouth, turn their host into a killing zombie. Some teenagers start to fight against them. 

Huge alien slugs take over human bodies through people’s mouth (can we saw eeew?). One of the best horror movies set on a college campus.

Night of the Comet from 1984: A comet wipes out most of life on Earth, leaving two Valley Girls to fight the evil types who survive. 

Anyone who grew up in the 80’s had to have seen Night of the Comet. Vintage post-apocalyptic world thanks to a comet that hits the world and turns people into zombies. Red dust everywhere with high hair, bad 80’s fashion, and some corny humor. Also has a happy ending!

Squirm from 1976: A storm causes some power lines to break and touch the ground, drawing millions of man-eating worms out of the earth, and into town where they quickly start munching on the locals. 

I couldn’t eat spaghetti for years after watching this wormsplotation horror movie. Gross, disgusting and very wet.

The Swarm from 1978: A huge swarm of deadly African bees spreads terror over American cities by killing thousands of people. 

Big name actors in this one, such as Michael Caine, Katharine Ross, Richard Chamberlain, Patty Duke and the big shockers- Henry Fonda and Olivia de Havilland. If you have a fear of bees, stay away from watching this movie.

Dark Night of the Scarecrow from 1981: In a small town, a wrongfully killed man exacts revenge on those who murdered him beyond the grave. 

One of the best made for TV horror movies, seriously. The movie may look dated, but it’s actually really good, and teaches a lesson about bullying. Also Charles Durning stars as a nasty villain, along with Larry Drake. A must see horror movie.

Silver Bullet from 1985: A werewolf terrorizes a small city where lives Marty Coslaw, – a paralytic boy – his uncle and his sister – the narrator of the story. 

Based on the short story by Stephen King, Silver Bullet is one of the best werewolf horror movies (next to The Howling and An American Werewolf in London). Many familiar faces here, such as Corey Haim, Megan Fellows, and Gary Busey, who really does shine here as their uncle. Also the twist regarding who the killer werewolf is great.

House from 1986: Roger Cobb is a Vietnam vet whose career as a horror novelist has taken a turn for the worse when his son Jimmy mysteriously disappears while visiting his aunt’s house. Roger’s search for Jimmy destroys his marriage and his writing career. The sudden death of his aunt brings Roger back to the house where his nightmares began. The evil zombies in the house force Roger to endure a harrowing journey into his past.

House is more of a horror comedy with William Katt (of The Greatest American Hero fame). Fun times in a haunted house!

Lady in White from 1988: Locked in a school closet during Halloween 1962, young Frank witnesses the ghost of a young girl and the man who murdered her years ago. Shortly afterward he finds himself stalked by the killer and is soon drawn to an old house where a mysterious Lady In White lives. As he discovers the secret of the woman he soon finds that the killer may be someone close to him. 

Lady in White is far from a B-Horror movie. It’s a true classic that is more subtle with the scares, and along the lines of The Sixth Sense. It’s more than a horror movie, and has a great atmosphere to it, with some nice twists. Also a great movies for teens to watch since there isn’t any gore, and good over evil wins the day.
