Suspense and gore are common factors among Halloween movies. Over the years, these movies have made even the most unscarable of us all want to close their eyes.

1. Halloween (1978)

The opening of the film sets the mood of the film with Michael Myers killing his sisters with a kitchen knife.

3. Let the Right One In (2008)

You will not be bored with the scares, blood, and gore that come with this movie. It is a European movie and does spend a lot of time with character development, but that just makes it that much more better. This is one of the best horror films that has been made in recent years and comes with a mix of horror and romance as it is about a young boy who falls in love with a vampire girl. Don’t worry, it is nothing like other recent vampire movies.

4. Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

There have been five sequels to this movie, but this is definitely the most serious of them all.
