Horror Films to watch during Halloween

Film and popcornDo you like scaring yourself? Fancy celebrating this Halloween (or any Sunday afternoon) with a good horror film marathon? Well plump up your pillows and get your blanket and bowl of popcorn ready and make sure no-one’s spying on you through the window, because we have some films to recommend…

The choice has been difficult. Lots of good films and some classics have had to have been left out because there wasn’t space  for everything on our Halloween film list. So after over-analysing our choices, these are the 30 best horror films or, at least, some of our favourites, in no particular order.
