Staying home this Halloween?  Don't be boring, scare yourself! Here is a list of the Top 5 Scary Movies to watch on Halloween!!
The Strangers (2008)
People who haven’t watched “The Strangers” yet are both lucky and missing out. Starring Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman, the film follows a young couple staying in a home in the middle of nowhere when they start to get terrorized by three strangers. Other than taking home invasion movies to another level, “The Strangers” also had the film marketed as being inspired by true events. But what really sells this movie before you even watch it is watching the trailer first and hearing a distraught Tyler ask why they are doing it and only getting the answer, “Because you were home.”
Halloween (1978)
All the sequels and terrible Rob Zombie remakes in the world can’t tarnish John Carpenter’s original film that put a new face on the slasher horror film genre- Michael Myers. With his quiet, relentless stalking of his sister Laurie (Jamie Lee Curtis), Michael Myers is a household name for horror fans and definitely a classic that never gets old.

A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)
When Wes Craven made “A Nightmare on Elm Street,” he did more than create a killer that nightmares are made of, he created a horror icon. Robert Englund stars as Freddy Krueger, a severely burned man who stalks and kills teenagers in their dreams which also kills them in real life. The idea of not being safe in both a physical and dream world was brilliant and easily made viewers not want to sleep again.

Paranormal Activity (2009)
If “A Nightmare on Elm Street” wasn’t enough to disturb your sleep for a few years, “Paranormal Activity” did the trick. The film centers around Katie and Micah, who begin to record themselves sleeping because of the weird things they hear happening at night. What followed was 99 minutes that revamped the found-footage craze as night after night viewers saw the couple get tortured in their sleep by an unseen entity, making you wonder what actually happens while you sleep.

The Ring (2002)
Say what you will about Japanese horror films, but there is no denying that when “The Ring” was released, it was scary. The film follows Rachel Keller (Naomi Watts), a journalist who investigates the circumstances in which her niece died. This leads to a cursed videotape and disturbing imagery that begins to haunt Rachel’s every day life until she can solve the mystery. This was suspenseful, scary, intriguing and downright memorable. And, who can ever forget the first time you see exactly how people die from watching the tape?
