One week from today, October 31 to be exact, is Halloween, a night that is filled with candy, kids visiting your house dressed in a variety of costumes and, if you're lucky, that one horror movie that still makes gives you chills no matter how many years have passed.
Horror movies, regardless of age, truly are relics that remain renowned and remarkable for how they're pieced together, and some would argue the older horror movies still stand tall in a terribly crowded field of movies in this genre, particularly with the newer ones that have arrived on the scene.
"Paranormal Activity" is one series of movies that has essentially captivated the horror audience recently with movies about ghosts running rampant through your home. Perhaps "Saw," the wildly popular franchise, was the kind pin of horror movies before that, but certainly not to be outdone by the legendary movies from years past, namely the commercially successful ones that "Friday the 13th," "Halloween," and "Nightmare on Elm Street."
As an adult, you might watch some of these flicks and realize just how silly and campy they are now, even though as a child or young adult they had you contemplating finding your way to your parents' room so you didn't have to sleep alone or calling out for a sibling that was smart enough to leave the room before any of the aforementioned movies hit the screen.
Not withstanding the likes of "Friday the 13th" and other horror characters that became iconic and spawned more than just a few sequels, the real bread and butter of horror movies have to be the classics from decades ago.
