Halloween 2019 is only a few days away, so – just in case you haven’t made any plans – we thought we’d give you an ultimate list of horror films to get your teeth stuck into.
Horror film lover or not, what better time to watch a scary movie than at the scariest time of the year? This year, we’ve asked around for what people to deem as the best horror film ever. Old and new (and not Halloween specific), we’ve picked out the best of the best. Get your popcorn (and blankets) at the ready…
Warning: Lots of scary film stills throughout.
