Halloween

Halloween is one of the most well-known holidays in the United States, but for most of the world Halloween means something else, and that is John Carpenter’s iconic 1978 horror slasher film. This is the film that gave us the scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis, who stars in the lead role of Laurie Strode constantly being hunted by the ruthless masked killer Michael Myers. Halloween is set in a quaint American town, which gives us the perfect contrast for the mayhem about to ensue this Halloween.

Even if you aren’t well-versed in the slasher horror genre you know about two slasher franchises the first one being Halloween, which was the first one on this list and the second one is Scream. Created in the vision of Wes Craven, this 1996 classic film did something on a shoestring budget that many big-budget Hollywood films can’t do and that is creating a space for itself in the zeitgeist. The film follows a group of teenagers who are being killed one by one by a masked killer known as Ghostface, and the brilliant thing about the killer being in a mask is that it can be anyone which is also the reason we are still seeing Scream sequels every other year.

Totally Killer

For the fans of the Back to the Future and the Scream franchises, we have good news for you because these franchises had sex and their baby is known as Totally Killer. Directed by Nahnatchka Khan, the Prime Video film is set in a town still haunted by the brutal murders of three teens that happened thirty-five years ago. In the present day, we follow the story of a 17-year-old girl Jamie and on Halloween, the killer from thirty-five years ago claims another victim who is Jamie’s mother. Jamie travels back in time to thirty-five years ago and tries to find the killer in the past to save her mother in the present. Totally Killer has the right amount of gore and nostalgia, and most importantly it’s a brilliant comedy.

A horror fan can never go wrong with a slasher comedy film with a masked killer thrown in there. Directed by Patrik Eklund, the Swedish language film titled The Conference has a basic slasher premise of a group of people in a remote location as a masked killer picks them off one by one. What makes this Netflix different is its characters who are colleagues working for a public office on a team-building exercise and all of the monotony that comes with such a dull job, only to make it exciting with some brutal murders and a fight for survival.

The Fall of the House of Usher
