Halloween Horror Movie Playlists
As the nights draw in, it is time for us horror fans to start drawing up our ultimate horror movie playlists for the big day itself, Halloween. There are few more important rituals on Hallow's Eve than having the perfect selection of horror flicks cued up for our viewing pleasure and perhaps this year you are in need of some new tricks to give you a terrifying treat.
We have put together 20 Halloween Movie Playlists to help inspire your horror film selection, both leading up to and for October 31st. Our select team of contributors have packaged three horror movies into a variety of themes to invoke the optimum amount of terror and dread this Halloween. From classic movies in genres such as Found Footage and Killer Clowns to more practical suggestions like the best movies to clear out stragglers at your Halloween party and the best scares lurking in the depths of Netflix, our bespoke playlists will ensure a happy Halloween for all.
Each movie selected is scored by our unique rating system, so you will know exactly what you are letting yourself in for. Look down below, if you dare, and let us know which playlists you will be watching this Halloween.

We here at HorrorRated have always been saddened by the fact that when it comes to credible killers the head is vastly underrepresented in the medium.
