A flick for everyone: 13 must-see films leading up to Halloween night

Cody Deitz, Staff Writer

     Halloween is the perfect holiday for movies that give you nostalgia and ones that give you chills. Starting with Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, the horror genre kicked off into the genre we know it to be today, which consists of sub-genres in fantasy, since fiction, and even comedy.

     One thing that is common among a group of friends is what movie to watch, as many have louder opinions than others. Luckily, I created the perfect list of movies that provides you options in the many phases that horror has gone through in its different generations. This list of films are all the Halloween and horror films that need to be readily streamed and watched, whether you want to side with films based for families, or ultimate slasher.
