FilmFrak’s 20 Great Horror Films for Halloween

It’s Halloween and that means most of us horror fiends are staying up beyond the midnight hour with our unblinking eyeballs weeping blood in a motion picture induced haemolacriao. The juicy marrow of fear, frights and fun that the genre can offer feeding some sick desire for visceral voyeurism and boundary violation.

Seeking ideas about what to watch on the 31st, Jon and Adam have spewed up a random list of horror favourites that quench the thirst for blood around this time of year. Entertaining and frightening some will make you giggle, some will make you gasp but all have celluloid imagery to scar the psyche.

So it is with little fore-thought, here are 10 great horror movies from each of us. Some classics and others that just aren’t talked up enough.
