As Halloween approaches - I wondered what you planned to watch on the night (if anything).

Halloween is a big night in the Scubamonkey house, with copious amounts of great food and good wine and three horror films I have never seen before......

So what about you? What are you going to watch? Are you sticking with something like Halloween, watching your favourite horror film that you have seen a million times before or is it something new?

As I think all horror films a clichéd shite I think I'll spend my evening playing Assassins Creed 3 which is released that day. Nerding it up big time.

Spending the evening nerding it up on a game released that day isn't nerdy in the slightest is it

I usually watch Halloween and Halloween II as i'm a sucker for tradition, but this year i shall be watching the new Criterion Blu-Ray of Rosemary's Baby.

My 5 essentials-

1) Halloween- The original is the best- genuinley menacing and feels like so much more than a slasher movie

2) An American Werewolf in London- My favourite film of all time and a killer soundtrack to match.

3) Hocus Pocus- Something a bit light hearted and reminds me of childhood halloweens.

4) When A Stranger Calls- Probably the most genuinely menacing film ever produced, and has left me with a fear of answering the phone ever since. "Have you checked the children"

5) Whislte And I'll Come To You- The end sequence of this is honestly terrifying.

I know. BBC4 showed "Halloween" last year so i'm surprised, oh well, i'll buy H1 & H2 on DVD! 5USA is showing H4 & H5 on Tues and Halloween night though

Same here, although i should point out that it's not a "one off" screening, Cineworld and other cinemas are showing it from the 2nd of November when it goes on general release (and the Cineworld nearest to me has put on another showing on halloween because the 8:30pm one is nearly sold out), me and my friends have already got our tickets for the 8:30pm halloween screening

I'm going to see the new Silent Hill movie. Have to go further abroad because my local Vue sucks at showing movies I want to see. But I really want to see this movie and will pay an extra couple of quid to travel further. Wish I had time to create a silent Hill nurse outfit.

(Drat looked it up and stuck with 3d only) 3D GO TO HELL!

Yes it is, it just isn't about Michael Myers.

I think the anthology format would have been cool if it continued as planned actually.

I doubt I'll be watching anything this Halloween sadly as it's a worknight, and I seldom these days seem to feel the window of opportunity is there during the evenings to feel I can relax and be 'in the mood' for a film for a sufficient amount of time, by the time you've offloaded the shackles of the day, seen to everything around the house and plan to make it to bed at a decent enough time to attempt a good night's sleep

Having said that I have noticed that there's something on BBC4 next week - not sure if it's actual Halloween night - a Mark Gatiss documentary about European horror through the ages. Shall certainly be catching that

I did for a while fall into a ritual of watching the 1925 Phantom Of The Opera every year. Perhaps not the most immediate Halloween viewing choice for many, but to me it nostalgically evoked the enigma of what horror films were all about when I was younger and my only sources of reference (being too young to stay up to watch late night TV) were things like old Starburst annuals - creepy gothic buildings, cobwebs, cadavers and catacombs.

I swear I will get back into the habit one day of having an orgy of cinematic celebration of Halloween. It would be great to have an 'all-decades' theme and spend from dusk to dawn rattling through a back-to-back marathon of creepy flicks starting from the 20s and working my through to the present day. Of course with the best will in the world I'd have to skip a decade or two for sheer time constraints lol.

Oh and of course I'd need to be living somewhere (am presently trying to move) more likely to not have to suffer the ambience-destroying interruptions of flamin' trick or treaters!! Grr
