Slowing, but surely, Halloween is creeping up on us.

Is your favourite in the list?
1. Get Out (2017)
Jordan Peele's Get Out won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay at the 90th Academy Awards, with additional nominations for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor. With a rating of 97% on Rotten Tomatoes, it's perhaps easy to see why it's the UK's number one Halloween hit.
2. Scream (1996)
The fifth instalment of the Scream series, the fifth movie, will feature the first film’s stars Neve Campbell and Courteney Cox and is scheduled for a January 2022 release. However, almost 25 years on, nothing beats the original.
3. The Shining (1980)
Stanley Kubrick's 1980 classic 'The Shining' has perhaps the most iconic one liner in horror history, with Jack Nicholson's famous "here's Johnny!". A film that seems to stand the test of time, despite being over 40 years old. Timeless.
4. It (2017)
Based on the Stephen King novel 'It', the film set numerous box office records and took in more than $701 million worldwide, making it the highest grossing film on the list.
