As I wrote in my previous post about Halloween costumes we don’t celebrate Halloween here in Norway and I don’t really have any tradition of watching movies on Halloween either, but if I should choose 5 movies to watch on Halloween, it would be these five.

28 Days Later…

Halloweenmovies (1)

Four weeks after a mysterious, incurable virus spreads throughout the UK, a handful of survivors try to find sanctuary.

This is one of my favorite zombie movies. It’s good because it’s very interesting, exciting and scary.

28 Weeks Later

Halloweenmovies (5)

Six months after the rage virus was inflicted on the population of Great Britain, the US Army helps to secure a small area of London for the survivors to repopulate and start again. But not everything goes to plan.

This is the sequel to 28 Days Later .


Halloweenmovies (4)

A shy student trying to reach his family in Ohio, a gun-toting tough guy trying to find the last Twinkie, and a pair of sisters trying to get to an amusement park join forces to travel across a zombie-filled America.

Another zombie movie. Also one of my favorite, but this movie is very different because it’s a both a comedy and a horror movie.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Halloweenmovies (2)

Jack Skellington, king of Halloweentown, discovers Christmas Town, but doesn’t quite understand the concept.

My favorite Tim Burton movie.

Alice in Wonderland

Halloweenmovies (3)

Nineteen-year-old Alice returns to the magical world from her childhood adventure, where she reunites with her old friends and learns of her true destiny: to end the Red Queen’s reign of terror.
