Halloween Magic: Movies (Part 3 of 3)

HEADS UP THIS IS A LONG POST!!!

2096992

Ever find yourself saying, “I really wish I could find a list of horror/thriller films by this particular actor/director/production house”?  Well you are in for a treat! (No tricks!)   I have compiled lists of all the major actors, directors, and production houses of the horror/thriller genre that I could think of. (Once again this isn’t exhaustive, even though I am exhausted!)  So as many as I could think of all in one place, feel free to copy and paste to a word document and hit print, to cross off what you’ve seen! However, I didn’t include the pumpkin scale… not only would this not get posted before Halloween of 2018 but I also haven’t seen the majority of these films so I have no idea where they would fall on the scale. A lot of these titles (except perhaps for the films from 1920s – 1950s) will be in the 4+, 5+, and P+ scale ranges. These titles are in no particular order. The groupings are by how I thought of them, and the titles are in order of how I found them (so if I obtained the titles from a best to worst list, or a most popular title list they won’t be in chronological or title order).

Perhaps even October 2019.  Because there is so much more I want to write about for the magic of Halloween other than movies…  and October is running out! And though I know I could talk about Halloween any time, I want to write about it when I’m feeling the magic!

Hope you enjoyed this trip into the horror genre and all the other information about Halloween-esque films.

Remember You Got This!
