Halloween DVDs: Dalton's Top 5

Not everyone needs to party Halloween night — some of us geniuses keep tacky clothes and bags of fun-size candy bars in the house embedded in our sofas all year long. If you’d rather spend the weekend freaking out in private, EW’s Dalton Ross picked his five favorite scary-movie DVDs for an appearance on CBS’ The Early Show this week. Go ahead, press play below. The eerie chords at the beginning should render you just unsettled enough to keep watching.

Any titles to add? I might just phone it in and watch rerurns of Spongebob. Those can be pretty terrifying.

    Poor Dalton. He did a great job amidst the morning-show banter cheese.

  • wendy

    Children of the corn, House of 1000 corpses and devils rejects all equally creepy and they are not on any list I have seen on this website yet.

    I like watching the Halloween episodes of my favorite shows, i.e. Buffy, My So-Called Life, Freaks and Geeks and the Simpsons.

  • Gabriela A

    Oldies but goodies:
    Hellraiser, The Entity, Poltergeist
    Some newer ones would be:
    28 Days Later, Ils (Them), Creep, Midnight Meat Train

    Isn’t Editor At Large the euphemism they used on Project Runway for “Nine got canned?” Please tell me Dalton is still at EW for the rest of time (or at least a few years)!

    BRING BACK “The Glutton”!!!!

    Dalton, you gave away the entire plot of “Psycho”! The surprise is the treat in that movie.

  • Nick

    I’m so sick of people pretending that The Exorcist is scary…maybe at the time it was…but now..meh. You read Top 10, 20, etc lists and everyone raaaaves about The Exorcist.

    Good movies but not sure scary is the right word. Referring to the remark that the Exorcist isn’t scary I don’t completely disagree but what it is is shocking. In particular, though standards for R rated films will change over time the lamguage will ensure that that movie will be rated R as long as anybody who reads this post will live.
