This review will contain NO spoilers for Jigsaw but might for Saw 1-7.
Please keep in mind that this is merely my opinion, and this will be almost strictly horror. 你 could say "What's 万圣节前夕 without Hocus Pocus and Halloweentown?" and that's fine but also cliched and not horror. This is not a 列表 of my 最喜爱的 horror 电影院 由 any means either, just a 列表 of great ones I think are fun to watch at 万圣节前夕 time and give me that sense of Horrorween (my new 最喜爱的 word btw). I have also included some horror 电视 in here as well just for the short attention span people (aka me).

It's important to note that while this could be seen as a remake of the 1990 Miniseries, it's actually a re-adaptation of Stephen King's original book IT. So while I may reference the miniseries...
Wish Upon is a 2017 American 邪恶力量 horror film directed 由 John R. Leonetti, and starring Joey King, Ki Hong Lee, and Ryan Phillipe. It was released on July 14, 2017.
As a major massive horror fan, I think it's very important that we support the genre. To some people that's exclusive to one sub-genre but to others like me, that means everything. Now, that doesn't mean if you're not interested in something go see it anyway just because ~horror~. But I don't buy into the PG-13 horror is always bad belief that many seem to have. Not every horror movie is made for...

I just got back from seeing this and WOW! All I have to say is wow. Let's just dive (pun intended) right in to my review. This will contain no spoilers.
The film starts out with sisters Lisa (Mandy Moore) and Kate (Claire Holt) on vacation in Mexico. Within 5 minutes, we know that Lisa's deadbeat of a boyfriend Stuart dumped her because she wasn't fun enough for him and he was bored with their...

I have a confession to make: I 爱情 horror; movies, books, 电视 shows, it doesn’t matter. I can’t make it through the week without my fix of horror escapism. As a very introspective person, I have often wondered why this is the case; why am I drawn to this specific genre? After a productive pondering session, I think I have come up with four compelling reasons horror is such a well-loved genre (at least to me).
1. It’s edgy. Do 你 remember being an 情绪硬核 teenager? Wearing skull and crossbone jewelry with punk rock band T-shirts and...
迷失 心 (1973) based on a tale 由 the marvellous ghost story teller MR James, is one of the Ghost Stories adapted 由 the BBC for the Yuletide series, adapted 由 Robert Chapman. Filmed on location in Lincolnshire during November, the autumnal scenery and 哥特式 Manor House provide a beautifully effective setting for such a spooky ambient tale. The story tells of Stephen Elliott, (Simon Gipps) a young orphan boy sent to stay with his much older cousin, Mr Abney (Joseph O'Conor) who's portrayal is reminiscent of Dr Caligari in his jerking movements and animated expressions. The...

“If horror 电影院 were some of the year’s most illuminating, they were also some of the year’s most fun,” writes the mag. “So we asked actors who gave this year’s greatest performances to interpret the genre’s archetypes."
