While many of our favorite Halloween horror movies feature serial killers, at Wholesale Halloween Costumes, we know that some of the scariest highlight the unnatural. We fear what’s different, and, unfortunately, that often includes activities focused on the Devil himself.
Take a look at our top ten list of movies that highlight The Beast and those who worship it.
10. The Blair Witch Project (1999)
The first of the “found footage” movie phenomena, The Blair Witch Project followed three film students on their journey into the Maryland woods for a two-day hike as they searched for the infamous Blair Witch. One year later, their tapes were found and compiled into what is now referred to as overhyped and overrated.
9. Blood on Satan’s Claw (1971)
It’s a fact of life: Horror movies are just scarier when the main characters are under the age of 15. In this movie from the early 1970’s, an English village saw its children slowly converting into a coven of devil worshipers.
8. Witchfinder General (1968)
You know that guy who narrates Michael Jackson’s Thriller video? That’s Vincent Price. This was one of his first starring roles. Witchfinder General is a low-budget British horror film that follows a young soldier on a quest to end evils occurring around his area.
7. The Craft (1996)
When a teenage girl moves to a new city with her family, the first friends she makes happen to be very interested in the occult. The possibilities of their powers are limitless, as they use them to solve personal problems, like getting boys to like them.
6. Hellraiser (1987)
After a man and his wife move into an old house and discover his hideous half-brother (the wife’s former lover) hiding upstairs, the couple is forced into finding human sacrifices for him to please the group of demons that possessed his earthly body.
5. The Omen (1976)
If not moving into a creepy old house is the number one rule of horror movies, not taking somebody else’s baby from the hospital should be number two. Gregory Peck’s character tries to avoid the heartbreak of his wife when she gives birth to a stillborn baby, not knowing that the baby which he is offered by his doctor killed his mother during birth, as he is the anti-Christ.
4. The Wicker Man (1973)
A girl goes missing in a Scottish Island Village. When a police sergeant is sent there to search, the townsfolk claim she never existed. While that initially seems strange to the sergeant, it doesn’t compare to the rites that take place when he’s in town.
3. Hocus Pocus (1993)
For our own safety, we’re putting Hocus Pocus on our list. According to marketingcharts.com, there are roughly 37-million millennial females on Earth at the time of this posting, and we estimate that nearly all of them would come after us if we posted about movies with witches and didn’t mention the Sanderson sisters.
2. Rosemary’s Baby (1968)
This classic features a young couple who finds themselves surrounded by odd happenings in their neighborhood, including the wife becoming mysteriously pregnant. Eventually, she becomes so paranoid about the safety of her unborn child that it begins to control her life.
1. The Exorcist (1973)
When Reagan begins taking on mysterious personalities and consequently falls ill, her mother seeks out the help of two priests to save her soul. Projectile vomiting ensues.
