Join in the #HallowQueenClub this October!

If you’ve been following me a while, you’ll know I have a passion for horror movies and Halloween, and each year I like to go all out. I usually do my own little list of movies to watch in the month, but after a bit of feedback from you guys on Instagram, you’ve been interested in me setting up a little film club, so here we are!

HOW DOES IT WORK

So below you’ll find 10 films (two to watch a week) over five weeks, with each one chosen as it’s had a real impact on me and I wanted to share it with you. All you have to do, is check out the movies below, and if you fancy sharing your thoughts on the movie, I’ll be running a couple of interactive bits:

  • Make sure you’re sharing and pictures/ videos of you watching the movies using the hashtag #hallowqueenclub and tag me @lilcolourfreak so I can repost you!
watch along with us!
  • At the end of each week, from Sunday at 6pm, I’ll be doing an interactive Q&A on my Instagram stories so make sure you’ve turned on notifications for that (head to my profile , click on the ‘following’ button and where it says ‘notifications’ make sure stories is turned on)
  • I’ll also be doing a Twitter chat on Sunday at 7pm, so you can join there for a Q&A too!

WEEK ONE (1st to 4th October)

The Cult Classic: Carrie (1976)

Watch on: Amazon Prime (UK rental)

There were so many Stephen King movies to choose from, but I settled on Carrie because I love Sissy Spacek’s performance. A psychological teen horror with just a dash of blood.

The Slasher: Scream

Watch on: Amazon Prime (UK rental)

There are so many great slasher movies out there, but Scream might just take the biscuit. From the iconic mask to all those quotable moments, this one is frightfully good.

WEEK TWO (5th to 11th October)

The Ghost Story: The Woman in Black (2012)

Watch on: Amazon Prime (UK rental)

Ghost stories, for me scare me most, and I’ll still remember how chilled I felt walking out of the cinema after seeing The Woman in Black for the first time. A gothic, Victorian horror that’s filled with jump scares.

The WTF ‘B’ Movie: Terrifier (2016)

Watch on: Amazon Prime (UK rental)

Hmm, how to describe Terrifier… I’ve placed it in the WTF category because well, it’s one hell of a ride, with possibly the most gruesome death I’ve ever seen in a horror movie, like, ever.

WEEK THREE (12th to 18th)

The Indie: Excision

Watch on: Amazon Prime

In my search for independent horror I found Excision, a dark and twisted teen tale, that’s visually stunning and spine-chilling in equal measure.

The Foreign Language: A Tale of Two Sisters

Watch on: Shudder, Amazon Prime (UK rental)

I was spoilt for choice when it came to foreign language horror, but A Tale of Two Sisters has always stuck with me. A chilling ghost story with a delightfully creepy twist.

WEEK FOUR (19th to 25th)

The Black comedy: What we do in the shadows

Watch on: Amazon Prime

To break up the jump scares and gore, I’ve added in my favourite black comedy, What We Do In The Shadows. The movie that arguably put Taika Waititi on the map, this vampiric masterpiece is a laugh-a-minute experience.

The serial killer: Maniac

Watch on: Netflix, Shudder

Not for the faint of heart, Maniac is my serial killer pick. With an impressive performance by Elijah Wood, this story follows a seriously sick man who collects scalps…

WEEK FIVE (26th to 31st)

The Leading Lady: US (2019)

Watch on: Now TV

Us was groundbreaking on so many levels, and Lupita Nyong’o not only played one, but two stellar roles in this modern horror.

The Creatures: The Descent (2005)

Watch on: Amazon Prime (UK rental)

The Descent was one of the first movies I watched as a teenager that got me obsessed with horror. It put the genre on the map for me because not only did this one have an all-female cast, but it was one of the scariest things I’d seen. Watch if you dare…
