I wanted to see if I could come up with an entire month of scary movies leading up to Halloween and the result was the Ultimate Horror Movie Calendar! If you’re a fan of the genre at all, you’ll likely have heard of most of these movies.

The movies in this list are SCARY and not appropriate for kids. If you’re looking for Halloween movies that are good picks to watch as a family, check out this list of Spooky Halloween Movies.
