CLASSIC movies to watch on Halloween….

Published

on

Halloween is a controversial date in Brazil, but very celebrated by some people. The atmosphere of terror mixes with the innocence of the children demanding candy – by threats of vandalism, of course – and creates a unique rendezvous. With that in mind, I spoke to CinePOP’s editorial staff and we put together a list of movies you can’t miss this Halloween. Check!

Abracadabra (1993)

A fan favorite, this film brings a more innocent and fun take on Halloween. Intended to be a Halloween special for Disney Channel, Abracadabra’s storyline ended up catching the attention of executives, who saw potential in it and gave the go-ahead to hit theaters. The plot begins in the 1960s, when three witch sisters decide to steal children’s vitality to stay young forever. The act causes a revolt and they are imprisoned for 30 years. In 1993, a young man travels to the town of Salem and ends up freeing the witches again.

Have fun watching:

The Night of the Deadly Pranks (1986)

This slasher flick takes a group of college students to an island mansion, where they plan to spend April Fool’s Day vacation. The house is full of April Fool’s pranks, like styrofoam chairs and fart pillows. But out of nowhere, the friends begin to mysteriously die. It’s fun and quite uncomfortable.

Panicked by Monsters (1987)

Written by Shane Black (Lethal Weapon), this horror-comedy is a genius cult classic that plays straight with all of Universal’s classic monsters. A group of pre-teens called Monster Patrol find a diary written by Van Helsing, which warns of monsters invading the city, who intend to retrieve a mystical amulet to put their evil plan into action. The group then decides to use their skills and their knowledge of the universe of monsters to help the adults in the most unexpected fight in cinema. Originally released on video, the film was so successful that it ended up in theaters. Additionally, the monsters’ makeup and clothing were done by the legendary Stan Winston.

Child’s Play (1988)

Impossible to talk about Halloween without thinking about children and horror. That’s why Child’s Play is pretty much the perfect example of the cruelty of the supernatural. After being shot by police, serial killer Charles Lee Ray breaks into a toy store, where he performs a Haitian ritual to transfer his soul into the body of a freak “Good Guy” doll. sale to children. After the ritual is completed, the now Chucky ends up being purchased by a widowed mother, who gives it as a gift to her six-year-old son, Andy Barclay. From there, the puppet comes to life and begins to play terror in the poor boy’s life.

The Ghostbusters (1984)

The second highest-grossing film of 1984, Ghostbusters became a true icon of the 1980s. Playing with the supernatural, a group of parascientists band together to investigate supernatural cases and capture ghosts in New York, proving that they are not charlatans. Their actions begin to have repercussions and business is going well, until one day a threat greater than anything they have ever faced: the dreaded Zuul. Despite being a comedic film that helped launch Bill Murray’s career, Ghostbusters manages to unite all the spirit of Halloween. Stranger Things says so.

Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin (1966)

In the 1960s, Turma do Minduim’s television specials enjoyed worldwide success. In Brazil they did not arrive until the 1980s. With a lot of sensitivity and different from the other productions on this list, Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin shows the boy Lino excited for Halloween. Unlike the other kids, he isn’t looking forward to the candy hunt or the costumes, but to seeing The Big Pumpkin, who would be a kind of Santa Claus for him, who tries to prove his case to the gang, but fails and gets lost. ended. until being laughed at. It’s a coming-of-age story in the middle of Halloween, plus it’s cute.

Panic (1996)

Starring Neve Campbell, David Arquette, Courteney Cox, Matthew Lillard, Skeet Ulrich, Rose McGowan and Drew Barrymore, the film revolutionized the slasher subgenre by bringing Sidney (Neve Campbell) as a student targeted by a mysterious killer who killed his victims inspired by the movies. Horror. The long, while innovative, satirizes the horror genre, but the strong inspiration from the Halloween franchise makes it a good choice for this October 31st.

Ghosts Have Fun (1988)

There’s no way to make a Halloween list without having at least one Tim Burton movie. Mixing comedy, horror and even musical, this film is 100% politically incorrect and puts the dead in charge of the situation. It tells the story of a couple who have a car accident, die and peacefully haunt a house. Until a posh family buys the property and begins taking peace from the hauntings, which call upon a hateful creature named Beetlejuice (Michael Keaton).

Halloween (1978–present)

Launched in 1978 as Halloween: The Night of Terror, John Carpenter’s franchise now has 12 films. Some are wonderful, while others are offensively evil (I’m talking to you, Halloween 6 – The Last Revenge). But the truth is, Halloween horror practically comes with this franchise, which brings serial killer Michael Myers after Laura Strode, or his own niece or relatives of the Strode family. Always attacking on Halloween night, the assassin is one of the icons of pop culture and it’s worth taking the day to check out the franchise.
