For most people, Halloween is about dressing up in costumes and going door-to-door trick or treating or handing out candy.  But if you’re anything like me, there’s so much more to it than that! I love doing haunted houses every year with my kids, but my favorite tradition of all is watching horror movies with my family. Of course, this all depends on what you’re into; maybe you like to go to haunted corn mazes or harvest festivals instead of watching scary movies at home?

There are tons of Halloween movies to choose from, but if you’re looking for an exciting thrill, slasher movies are the way to go! It’s not really surprising to hear that slasher movies are popular this time of year, as these types of horror movies can be extremely tense and exciting to watch—perfect for Halloween weekend.

When I think about my favorite Halloween movies, nothing comes to mind more quickly than horror and slasher films. Something about a good ol’ blood and guts flick gets me every time – and Halloween is one of my favorite times of year for Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, and of course we can't forget Halloween.

For Halloween weekend do you plan to watch some scary movies? If you're like me, you've been watching them for about a month an half now so I've seen my favorites already. I wish we could watch every horror movie ever all weekend long. But who has the time?
