TOP 10 BEST SCARY MOVIES FOR HALLOWEEN
It’s Halloween time again, which means it’s time for a new horror movie list for your viewing/nightmare pleasures! Let’s grab your candy and pop and enjoy your night with these movies, all fullHD at TeaTV!
Released: February 2017
Cast: Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Catherine Keener, Bradley Whitford
Director: Jordan Peele
Reason to watch: Get Out tackles all sorts of uncomfortable social issues, and does so in a playfully freaky, and frequently insightful, fashion. The movie’s all about a young black guy who heads off with his white girlfriend to meet her oh-so-progressive family, and realizes that something is very wrong with the racial divide in this sleepy little town. Mr. Peele employs suspense and tension throughout most of the movie — with some comedy on the side, of course — and then lowers the hammer with a finale that’s demented fun. Like the best horror flicks, Get Out borrows a little from movie history while forging ahead with a unique perspective. This movie will entertain and make you think.
Released: September 2017
Cast: Bill Skarsgård, Jaeden Lieberher, Finn Wolfhard

Reason to watch: Raised as a rigorous vegetarian, doe-eyed freshman Justine following in her parents’ footsteps, she is sent off to the reputable Saint-Exupéry Veterinary school where the black sheep of the family, her big sister Alexia, is already studying. There, young virginal Justine, leaving the familial shelter, will abruptly move into a mad new world of school traditions, vicious initiation tests and hard partying, utterly unprepared though for the rough year start only rush week’s mandatory hazing can offer. As a result, with Alexia reluctantly showing her the ropes but only halfway, Justine during the long-established trial of raw offal-eating, she will be forced to chew over her devout herbivorous beliefs and swallow a fresh chunk of bright-red rabbit kidney, unknowingly descending deep into her uncharted animalistic tendencies. Before long, repulsion will be replaced with an unprecedented, equally unquenched and palpable craving for raw meat, transforming Justine into a monstrous carnivore ravenous for human flesh and a gluttonous meat junkie. Now that Justine’s corporeal awakening is finally complete, is there a point denying her hunger?
