I love watching horror movies, even though I’m scared of a lot of things. The spine-chilling feeling you get when the protagonist walks all alone through daunting places or the horrific moment when a character gets caught by the murderer are some of the exciting moments in horror movies to me. However, I also love it when a good movie works without the jump scares or gory scenes but gives you chills by its fantastic story. Since Halloween is coming up, I thought I’d make a list of some horror movies I liked and recommend for a good scare at a horror movie night.
