Get in the Halloween Spirit with These Must-Watch Movies: Creepshow, Trick ‘r Treat, Twilight Zone, and More!


It has been a spooky month, and everything is leading up to the night of the great pumpkin on the 31st of October. We hope that all of you used this month wisely to eat candy and watch horror flicks because that’s certainly what we were up to in the last weeks. But besides that, we gave you an introduction to the (movie) world of undead ghouls, maniacal slashers, and bloodsucking vampires.

We had several ideas for part 4 of TITLE’S TALES OF TERROR, but as we couldn’t decide on one type of fear-inducing monster, we decided to give you the best horror anthologies and one special gem perfectly suited for this year’s conclusion!

Let’s start with

  1. CREEPSHOW (1982)

In 1982, every horror aficionado’s wet dream became a reality when two true masters of horror teamed up for this anthology movie. We have Stephen King, the world-renowned horror author, taking over the writing, while George A. Romero, the master of Zombies, took over directing. Our inspiration behind the movie is the famous “Tales from the Crypt” comics of the 1950s. These comics marketed for kids often dealt with very explicit and grizzly tales of revenge and featured enough gore and blood to alarm the government. Soon the Comics Authority Code to regulate content suited for children was born and did everything to wipe horror comics off the face of the earth.

We pay respect to those times long gone and present you five stories to chill your bones. A vengeful father returning from the grave to get what’s rightfully his – his birthday cake, a lonely farmer finding a mysterious piece of space rock, an unfaithful wife, “a thing in a crate,” and thousands and thousands of cockroaches make sure you won’t forget this Halloween classic.

2. TRICK ‘R TREAT (2007)

The 80s were a goldmine for anthology movies. The trend died down a little bit in the 90s and 2000s, but 2007’s “Trick ‘r Treat” brought the beloved genre back into the mainstream. We have four episodes containing werewolves, a murdering school principal, a school bus full of drowned children, and a lovable pumpkin-headed guy named Sam, who constantly reminds you to honor Halloween traditions. They are everything you need for a spooky movie night.


Not fully a horror movie, but certainly a contestant for a Halloween night is “Twilight Zone,” the movie adaptation of one of TV’s most iconic shows.

First aired in 1959, “Twilight Zone” is an anthology series created by Rod Serling that borrows from the genres of science fiction, dystopian fiction, supernatural, fantasy, and of course, horror.

In 1983, four directors, namely Steven Spielberg, Joe Dante, George Miller, and John Landis, came together to give you a reimagining of their four favorite classic TV episodes. We have a boy with psychic powers holding a whole town hostage, a racist bigot who finds himself “in someone else’s skin,” a mysterious stranger in a retirement home, and a scary passenger on a plane. What’s not to love about this?

The episode “Nightmare at 20,000 feet” is a classic that has been revered in pop culture since its debut. We’re quite sure that most of you saw “The Simpsons” adaptation in “Treehouse of Horror” once in your lifetime. It deals with a plane passenger who glimpses a gremlin on the outside of his plane. Nobody believes him as he tries to save everybody from the plane-destroying monster. Thrilling to the end.

Well, here are three more movies for you , ghouls and boys, but we honestly couldn’t end this article without sharing one of our favorite movies for Halloween:


This is the movie to rule them all. The lovable “Peanuts” cast celebrates our favorite holiday, and we get to see Charlie Brown constantly being handed a stone instead of candy while trick-or-treating. Linus skips the big party because he prefers to wait at night in a pumpkin field for the “great pumpkin” to appear, and there are other funny scenes that will surely make you chuckle.

It’s the perfect movie to get you into the festive mood – even without blood and gore.

So, that’s it!

We hope you enjoyed our roundup of Halloween favorites, and we wish you a happy Halloween with your loved ones!

Until next year!
