As we shelter away from the fires and disease of our collapsing society, this Halloween season is the perfect time to catch up on horror movies!

Here are Marrow Gate's 13 horror movie recommendations for the end of days, in no particular order:

13. Planet of the Vampires (1965)

An excellent sci fi horror movie featuring sleek costumes, an insane plot and dense fog. 


12. The Unnameable (1988)

 The Unnameable is an absurd Lovecraft adaptation with fantastic gore effects.


11. Ghosthouse (1988)

Ghosthouse is incredibly unsettling regardless of how cheesy it is, thanks to the great soundtrack. The use of radio signals and quantum slippage to drive the story adds another level of strangeness not to be missed.


10. The Company of Wolves (1984)

The Company of Wolves is a dreamlike horror experience with gruesome special effects and a hard-to-describe comedic glibness.


9. Attack of the Mushroom People (1963)

There are few movies that reach the psychotic fever pitch of Attack of the Mushroom People's terrifying climax. A must-watch for fans of rusted shipwrecks and fungal overgrowth.


8. Ghoulies (1984)

Ghoulies are just the best monster puppets ever made, no question about it.


7.  TerrorVision (1986)

TerrorVision is the quintessential horror comedy. Though released in 1986, the premise of interstellar garbage wreaking havoc on another planet is highly relevant to our current landfill world. The monster in this film is also an absolute masterpiece. 


8.  The Visit (2015)

M. Night Shyamalan redeemed himself in 2015 with the creepiest movie of the last three decades. You can expect a classic Shyamalan twist with this one, but the real meat of this movie is in the small details.


7. Poltergeist III (1988)

Poltergeist III is a rock concert of a horror movie, throwing down fog and colored lights whenever the villain enters the scene. This movie also features some of the most horrifying puddle scenes out there.


6. Cemetery Man (1994)

Cemetery man is a sardonic horror movie, irreverent in a way that amplifies the shock without relieving any tension. 


5. The Dead Pit (1989)

The Dead Pit is cheesy and ridiculous in a great way, building to an extremely satisfying climax.


4. Prince of Darkness (1987)

It's science vs. evil in John Carpenter's Prince of Darkness! An amazing soundtrack and genuinely horrifying scenes make this movie unforgettable. As an added bonus, Alice Cooper makes a cameo appearance as a deranged cultist zombie.


3. Brain Damage (1988)

Brain damage is a disturbing dark comedy about a charming evil parasite and the dangers of addiction.


2. Dead Alive (1992)

Arguably, Peter Jackson's finest hour! Dead Alive is a triumph in practical gore effects and deadpan comedy.


1. Night of the Demons (1988)

Night of the Demons is truly the pinnacle of 80's horror; campy and fun while absolutely horrifying thanks to incredible performances by Linnea Quigley and Amelia Kinkade.
