Author: Clark Tos
It's almost Halloween so we offer you a small selection of horror films to see or watch again.
As Halloween night looms, many of you are probably wondering what you're going to do for the occasion. If the youngest among you will undoubtedly go on a candy hunt or in the evening to have fun, the oldest or homebodies will rather prefer to stay warm under their plaid in front of the TV.
And who says Halloween must say scary!
Nothing like a good horror movie very scary as a couple or solo to spend a perfect October 31st.
So make yourself comfortable on the sofa and admire this little top 10 (subjective and in no order of preference) that we have concocted for you with love.

Top 10 Scary Halloween Horror Movies
Of course, there are many horror films that deserved to be on this shortlist, but, as the writer André Gide says, 'choosing is giving up', so we had to decide. Here are the feature films selected. From classics to the latest, there's something for everyone.
A classic among classics, this horror film directed by Alfred Hitchcock is inspired by an eponymous novel by Robert Bloch. Considered a masterpiece of the 7th Art and served by music that has remained famous, it tells the story of Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins), a very disturbed young man who works in a motel with his mother.
The Exorcist (1973)
Cult film also with original music passed down to posterity, ' The Exorcist ' is one of the greatest horror films ever made. It is the film adaptation of the novel of the same name written in 1971 by William Peter Blatty. It tells the story of a young girl, possessed by a demon, which a priest will try to exorcise. Qualified on its release as 'the most terrifying film of all time', ' The Exorcist 'remains a horror classic
Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)
Directed by Tobe Hooper, this famous horror film was banned in many countries when it was released in 1974. That's how violent it is! The pitch? Five friends who discover a house that they believe to be abandoned, will experience an ordeal by becoming the prey of a cannibalistic and bloodthirsty family. An entire program.
Carrie at the Devil's Ball (1976)
Adapted from the debut novel by master of horror Stephen King, ' Carrie at the Devil's Ball ', directed by Brian de Palma, tells the story of a young teenager who is bullied in her high school. One day, she discovers that she has telekinetic powers and her daily life will be turned upside down.
Halloween : The Night of the Masks (1978)
He couldn't not be in this top! John Carpenter's cult film, which stars Jamie Lee Curtis, tells the horrific Halloween night spent by the inhabitants of the small town of Haddonfield, where a killer sows terror.
Claws of Night (1984)
Released in 1984, this film directed by Wes Craven, to whom we also owe the classic ' Scream ', traumatized a whole generation of moviegoers with the horrible child killer Freddy Krueger who haunts the nights of a handful of high school students. Chills guaranteed!
The Blair Witch Project (1999)
Directed by Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sánchez, this indie horror film left its mark with a suggestive style and constant tension. Filmed like a documentary, it is a worthy representative of the genre of 'found footage' (a film that would be made from found footage) and shows a group of three friends filming themselves in a forest where a witch once lived. For the record, this successful film made with very little means is in the list of the most profitable feature films of all time.
The Circle (2002)
Remake of a Japanese movie released in 1998, ' The circle ' is one of the most significant horror films of the 2000s. The plot centers around a mysterious videotape that makes anyone who watches it pass away seven days after watching it.
Paranormal activity (2009)
As ' The Blair Witch Project ', ' Paranormal activity ' is presented as if it were a documentary, from personal archives. The film features a couple who attend supernatural phenomena strange in the house he has just acquired.
American Nightmare (2013)
Dystopian horror film starring Ethan Hawke, ' American Nightmare ' takes place in the near future in the United States, where crime has almost disappeared thanks to the establishment, once a year, of a night where all crimes are allowed, even the worst.
