The Shin­ing

A DE­SERTED HO­TEL, A MAN ON THE EDGE, A FAM­ILY FAR FROM HELP – THIS CLAS­SIC 1980S HOR­ROR FLICK HAS ALL THE CREEPY ELE­MENTS RE­QUIRED FOR A FRIGHT-FEST ON THE SOFA. BASED ON THE BOOK BY STEPHEN KING AND HELMED BY JACK NI­CHOL­SON AT HIS MOST TERRIFYINGLY DE­RANGED, IT’S NO WON­DER THE FILM’S CON­SID­ERED ONE OF THE SCARI­EST HOR­ROR MOVIES OF ALL TIME. 'Heeeere’s JOHNNY!’… FRIGHT FAC­TOR

The Blair Witch Project

WHEN THREE FILM STU­DENTS VEN­TURE INTO THE WOODS TO IN­VES­TI­GATE THE MYTH OF ‘THE BLAIR WITCH’, THEY DIS­AP­PEAR. ALL THAT’S LEFT IS THE DIS­TURB­ING FOOTAGE ON THEIR CAM­ERAS. THIS FAUX DOC­U­MEN­TARY FREAKED OUT AU­DI­ENCES WHEN IT WAS FIRST RE­LEASED IN 1999 AS MANY THOUGHT IT WAS REAL. AND WITH THE SE­QUEL IN CIN­E­MAS NOW, IT’S TIME TO RE­WATCH THE ORIG­I­NAL LOW-BUD­GET, HIGH-IM­PACT HOR­ROR. JUST DON’T PLAN A FOR­EST RAM­BLE SOON. FRIGHT FAC­TOR

Psycho

WHAT IS IT ABOUT OLD FILMS THAT MAKE THEM EX­TRA CREEPY? AL­FRED HITCH­COCK’S 1960S HOR­ROR CLAS­SIC IS A MUST WATCH OVER THE SPOOKY SEA­SON. YOU MIGHT HAVE SEEN IT COUNT­LESS TIMES, BUT THAT IN­FA­MOUS SHOWER SCENE AND THE ICONIC BACK­GROUND SCREECH­ING MU­SIC WILL STILL MAKE YOU JUMP… THAT IS IF YOU CAN BEAR TO PEEK FROM BE­HIND YOUR HANDS! FRIGHT FAC­TOR

The Ring

NOT ONE FOR THE FAINT-HEARTED, THIS PSY­CHO­LOG­I­CAL HOR­ROR FOL­LOWS JOUR­NAL­IST (NAOMI WATTS) IN­VES­TI­GAT­ING THE UR­BAN LEG­END OF A DEADLY VIDEO­TAPE WHICH CAUSES THE DEATH OF ANY­ONE WHO WATCHES IT. IT MIGHT SOUND FAR-FETCHED, BUT TRUST US, YOU’LL BE KEPT ON THE VERY EDGE OF YOUR SEAT. JUST MAKE SURE THE PHONE’S ON SI­LENT – IF IT RINGS, YOU MAY NEVER RE­COVER FROM THE SHOCK! FRIGHT FAC­TOR

Scream

DREW BAR­RY­MORE FANS MIGHT HAVE BEEN SAD TO SEE HER CHAR­AC­TER’S EARLY (AND GORY) DEMISE IN THIS JUMPY ’90S HOR­ROR, BUT THERE’S MUCH MORE TO COME AS THE CRAZED KILLER TAKES HIS LOVE OF SCARY MOVIES ONE STEP TOO FAR. IF YOU’VE ANY HAL­LOWEEN MASKS IN THE HOUSE, WE SAY GET RID OF THEM BE­FORE WATCH­ING THIS ONE. AND OF COURSE, DON’T AN­SWER THE DOOR OR THE PHONE, AND MOST OF ALL... DON’T SCREAM. FRIGHT FAC­TOR
