Our 5 favorite films to binge-watch before Halloween
Whether you prefer stand-alone films or haunting franchises with a grisly cult following, there are so many movies to go batty over as Halloween night inches closer. Needless to say, to the fans who’re obsessed enough to buy horror movies online to watch them year-round, or those who may be on the haunt for some horrifying tales to bewitch the senses, here are some of Nightmare Toys’ most cherished, binge-worthy contenders.
The Conjuring (2013)
While there are many alarming choices from The Conjuring Universe, none make the same bloodcurdling impression as the first installment in the creep-tastic franchise. For those who have it on their horror bucket list, The Conjuring is a supernatural film that follows a real-life telling of the experiences of the Perron family while living in their Rhode Island farmhouse in the ‘70s. It also gruesomely intertwines demonologists, Lorraine and Ed Warren, as they attempt to investigate these paranormal events.
Although Coraline is an animation that’s not particularly known for being frightening or gory, the reality is it has some grisly terrifying scenes that were inspired by age-old folktales. So, why hasn’t it been added to your must-watch Halloween list?
Of all the nightmarish monsters in this quivering horror film, none are more brilliantly creepy than, Other Mother. Thanks to Pop! Movies and Pop! Animation, we’ve got an otherworldly collection of Coraline mementos that add alluring diversity to your ever-growing horror collection. Ultimately, who can resist those button eyes?
Those looking for a slasher that’s bound to fog their dreams with frightening nightmares should relish in the bizarre darkness exhibited by the film, Terrifier. After all, who wouldn’t want to watch as an unnerving clown maniacally terrorizes his prey on all Hallows eve? Those who’re fans of the homicidal, Art the Clown, can even reanimate the beloved murderer with some of his cult collectibles — including a full-bodied costume, chilling mask, and even a dreadful tee designed to cloak their ghoulish charm.
The days leading up to Halloween wouldn’t be the same if they didn’t include watching one of Stephen King’s iconic cult classics. That’s we recommend that you add Carrie to your list of alarmingly, bone-chilling horror films. An oldie, but a goodie, Carrie is an adaptation of the famed horror novel which follows a teen who faces bullying at school and parental abuse at home. Equipped with supernatural powers, she takes a malevolently dark turn for the worst, making the violent plot sequence a cackling good time for horror lovers.
If you buy horror movies online and haven’t already acquired this eerie addition, we’ve got an impressive DV that contains all the chilling bonus features. Although if your devotion extends beyond basic film collection, a bloody coffee mug or mini figurine may be enough to tame your loathing heart.
Chucky (1988 – 2019)
Whether you binge-watch the series or select a slasher favorite from the famed horror franchise, no countdown to Halloween could ever be complete without a heavy dosage of Chuck! After all, his voodoo-chanting is rather mesmerizing to worshipers of the notorious serial killer. So, grab yourself some popcorn and start decorating your crypt with your collection of Child’s Play action figures, horror movies pillows, and dolls, dead-icating your evening to the Good Guys!
Note that some of the above collectibles may be pre-order items and will be shipped on their scheduled dates.
