Maybe you need a little extra inspiration to get into the Halloween spirit. Maybe you're just not into celebrating the 31st at a flashy co-worker costume party. Maybe you were cleaning the autumn leaves out of your roof gutter when you toppled off your ladder, and the full body cast within which you now find yourself entombed simply refuses to fit into that "Sexy Elmo" costume you were hoping to flaunt on All Hallow's Eve. Whatever the case, you've got a pumpkin spice latte in one hand, your TV remote in the other, and some extra time to kill, and we've got just what you need: a full rundown of the finest Halloween programming this side of the Netherworld. So sit back, relax, and enjoy a mix of TV shows and films that run the gamut from monstrous marathons to creepy classics. Oh, and there's some good stuff for the kiddies, too.
TV vampire fans suffered a painful loss in August, when HBO's True Blood aired its series finale after seven sudsy seasons of sharp-fanged melodrama. All is not lost, however; the CW's The Vampire Diaries begins its sixth season on October 2, and in honor of its return, we decided to dedicate this week's list to a look back at some of the small screen's most noteworthy nosferatus. It's time for Total Recall!
We went down into the crypt, opened the coffin, and summoned the 75 best-reviewed horror films of all time. Behold -- it's RT's Horror Countdown, a compendium of horror shows to keep your spine tingling long after your trick-or-treat candy has gone stale.
There have been so many horror remakes that there's no way we could cover them all at once. We did, however, decide to collect a sampling list, making room for some of the best, worst, and most puzzlingly misguided examples from the genre. Let's get started, shall we?
We look back at some of cinema's most stubborn survivors, those characters that somehow managed to avoid being offed in multiple horror movies. Here are our choices for the Horror Movie Survivor Hall of Fame!
The leaves have changed colors, there's a chill in the air, and the kids on your block are already plotting their elaborate revenge for the lousy off-brand candy you're planning on putting in the bowl, come October 31st. It's almost Halloween, gang, and in honor of the unholyday, your pals at RT decided it would be fun to compile a list of some of the most iconic serial killers in horror film history. You'll find Freddy and Jason here, of course, but we've also made room for a few less obvious choices, and we've scoured the internet to come up with our estimates. Let the slashing begin!
