Inspired by Friday The 13th, Here’s A List Of Horror Movies To Watch This Weekend
Embrace the fear that arises when the 13th day of a month lands on a Friday by watching these frightening flicks from the past 40 years. Just how many can you get through in one weekend?
Old School Classic Blood-And-Guts Thrillers From The 80s And 90s
The last few decades of the 20th Century saw the birth of some of the most iconic and monstrous horror films in entertainment history:
Friday The 13th made you fear the day itself (and any guy wearing a hockey mask in the street), Freddy Krueger ruined your sleep for nights on end, Pennywise (It) took your fear of clowns to another level, Hannibal Lecter spoilt your appetite while you were still in the cinema and Chucky gave you a new perspective on toy dolls.
An era of legendary evil, indeed.
A few of these classics were re-made in more recent times such as It (2017), the Hannibal TV series (2013-2015) and Friday The 13th is rumoured to be remade in 2020.

With the improvement of technology in the film industry, directors and producers now have better tools to make you flip your bucket of popcorn onto fellow movie-goers. With more realistic visual effects and more creatively horrifying tales from writers, the 21st Century is looking terrible... in a good way.
The critically acclaimed Get Out took the world by storm in 2017 by winning more than a handful of awards. The Saw series seemed never-ending and released its eighth movie, Jigsaw, to the franchise. The Conjuring, Insidious and Paranormal Activity also have a series of films for those brave souls who wish to binge-watch.
And what makes these movies even scarier is when you read the words "inspired by a true story."
