Oh, the Horror!: A Halloween Movie Line-Up

Oh, the Horror!: A Halloween Movie Line-Up
Halloween is just around the corner. For many it's time to carve pumpkins, hang the fake cobwebs, and consume so many "fun-sized" candy bars it stops being fun. For us movie lovers it means dusting off the old horror movie collection, popping some popcorn and clicking "play". There is a heap of scary movies one can choose from in order to be spooked each season; from blood-sucking vampires, flesh-eating zombies and relentlessly haunting spirits to the mildly frightful, but mainly laughable characters of the genre. Since I usually prefer to maintain the ability to sleep at night, I typically choose the comedic route when trying to get into the spirit of Halloween. However, there are times when a good scare is quite thrilling. Here's what's in my queue for this Halloween (in no particular order)... The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993) The Shining (1980) Beetle Juice (1988) Ghostbusters (1984) 30 Days of Night (2007) Zombieland (2009) Sleepy Hollow (1999) Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992) Pet Semetary (1989) 28 Days Later (2002) ...I'm feeling pretty good about my line-up. However, I can't help but feel I'm missing something; something that I can't quite put my finger on. Maybe you can help...any suggestions?
