Halloween Movie Night

Popcorn spilling from a basket
Looking for something to do this Halloween season? If you’re not the type of person to head to a Halloween party or go out on the town, we suggest settling into your Malden, MA apartment to have a Halloween movie night! In this week’s Cliffside Commons Blog, we’ve come up with a short list of movies that we think you should watch to get yourself in the mood for October 31st.

The Blair Witch Project

“Found video footage tells the tale of three film students (Heather Donahue, Joshua Leonard, Michael C. Williams) who've traveled to a small town to collect documentary footage about the Blair Witch, a legendary local murderer. Over the course of several days, the students interview townspeople and gather clues to support the tale's veracity. But the project takes a frightening turn when the students lose their way in the woods and begin hearing horrific noises.”

Saw

“Two people wake up in a decrepit underground chamber. They're chained to two pipes. Within their reach are hacksaws that aren't strong enough to cut through their chains, but more than capable of slicing through bone and flesh. Between them is a dead man with a .38 in his hand. They also find a note, which instructs one of them that unless he kills the other within eight hours, his family will be slaughtered. Unless they can outsmart the evil mind that's placed them in their situation, time is about to run out on their lives.”

Silent Hill

“Unable to accept the fact that her daughter is dying, Rose (Radha Mitchell) decides to take the girl to a faith healer. On the way, the pair drive through a portal in reality, leading to an eerie town called Silent Hill. The town is surrounded by a potent darkness, and the human survivors fight a losing battle against it.”

These movies are meant to be scary and are for a mature audience, viewer discretion is advised.
