4 Classic Horror Films to Watch This Halloween at Devonshire
October 22, 2021   |   Jillian Letourneau

For your party or a low-key evening this Halloween at Devonshire, these films are timeless classics that are always great for a quality scare on the spookiest day of the year! 


This quintessential horror film is one that never gets old, and there is no better time to watch it than on its namesake holiday! The events chronicled on Halloween in Haddonfield, Illinois are sure to give you chills to the bone and have you watching your back for the masked “shape”, Michael Myers! And the great part about “Halloween”, is that there are currently 12 films in the series, so if you love the first, there are plenty of spooks to follow! 


Is there anything more iconic in the world of horror films than the shower scene with the shrill, intense orchestral music? This Alfred Hitchcock film will take you on a journey through the terrifying world of Norman Bates and his eerie, Bates Motel. Additionally, “Halloween” and “Psycho” are connected by a common thread… the leading ladies are related! Janet Leigh, the iconic Marion Crane in Psycho is the mother of Jamie Lee Curtis, who plays the terrorized babysitter Laurie Strode in “Halloween”. With 5 films in the “Psycho” franchise, you’ll also have plenty of spooky viewing material on Halloween!


For a different type of scare, aside from the traditional slasher, “Jaws” is a timeless film that always provides thrills and a quality spook. This classic thriller takes the viewer along a journey following a series of terrifying shark attacks in the unassuming beach town of Amity Island. “Jaws” will make you squirm for quality Halloween viewing and might make you think twice before getting into the water the next time you take a trip to the beach. And, if you didn’t get enough by watching “Jaws”, the three sequels that follow should do the trick! 


If you’ve ever given out candy for trick or treaters, chances are you’ve seen a few “Scream” masks, and maybe you went as this classic horror film character for Halloween once yourself! This story is another edge-of-your-seat slasher, with plenty of elements of surprise, and with the added scare factor of being inspired by a true story! Along with the other films in this list, there are three “Scream” sequels for an extra bit of spookiness!
