It’s finally October, my favorite month! For spooky people like myself, October means the real beginning of fall. Crisp weather, cozy nights, and pumpkin spice everything! It also means I can celebrate Halloween every day until the 31st. Part of my celebration means movies. Lots and lots of movies. Which is why I’m offering you my October film picks.
Do you stream Hulu? If so, Huluween is always fun. For the month of October, Hulu offers movies and shows for those of us who enjoy a good scare. It’s always my first stop for horror movies. This year, I plan on watching an old favorite, Hellraiser. Based on the novel by Clive Barker, Hellraiser scared me to death back when I saw it in the 80’s, and I can’t wait to relieve the experience.
Another one of my October film picks from Hulu is Candy with Jennifer Biel. Although this is a show rather than a movie, it seems like the perfect mix of The Stepford Wives and a scary thriller. I always dig things set in the retro 80’s, and I can wait to watch this one.
Last, but not least, I want to watch a more recent movie. Black Phone has been on my to-watch list for quite a while. I wasn’t able to see it in the movie theater, unfortunately, but since I’m in the mood to celebrate Halloween, it’s time to stream some Peacock.
Black Phone is a new Blumhouse movie, and if you know anything about horror movies, you’ll know that Blumhouse creates some of the best ones.
The problem with picking what to watch in October is that there are so many great movies to pick from! I’ll be watching more than what’s on this list, of course, but these are the top picks.
