I promise all of you that I have meant to update this part of my blog for a while but, of course, I’ve been obsessed with catching up on Breaking Bad and other shows on Netflix. As all of you know, Halloween is just around the corner so Netflix has chosen to be holiday themed once again and unleash their horror movies on their viewers to help prepare them to get into the spirit of ghouls, frights, and, occasionally, murders. There are other movies on here besides the Scream movies.
Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers (1995) – In this installment in the legendary slasher Halloween films, serial killer Michael Myers once again returns from the dead once again (how many times will that happen?), this time to terrorize his niece and her newborn child.
Rosemary’s Baby (1968) – This popular classic has provided a legacy for other horror movies to be made that involve black magic and Satan worshippers. Rosemary Woodhouse (Mia Farrow) is a woman who is excited to discover that she is pregnant but as her pregnancy progresses, Woodhouse fears that her unborn child is in serious danger.
Carrie (1976) – Not to be confused with the most recent remake (which I plan to still see), this is the original classic based on the novel from Stephen King. Sissy Spacek plays the outcast teen with telekinetic abilities lashes out with her power when the popular crowd at her high school play a terrible prank on her at the prom.
Stephen King’s Children of the Corn (1984) – Another horror classic based on Stephen King’s written works, a couple (Peter Horton and Linda Hamilton) gets stranded in a rural town where the children have murdered all of the town’s adults at the command of their leader, known as “He Who Walks Behind The Rows”.
Hellraiser (1987) – This horror classic comes to us from Great Britain but has an established following here in America. After an undead man (Andrew Robinson) loses his earthly form to demons from another dimension, he asks his ex-mistress for human sacrifices to rebuild his body.
