With Halloween next week, we are excited to talk about one of the best parts of this time of year – scary movies. This is a topic that immediately stirs up emotional stress here #onthefourthfloor. Although we love a good scream, we’re scared of pretty much everything when it comes to scary movies. Whether you’re carving pumpkins, nursing your Halloween hangover, curling up with some candy or getting ready to trick or treat, we’ve rounded-up the perfect movies to get you spooked!


What is it about clowns that is so creepy? Stephen King’s classic, IT tells the story of a group of kids trying to solve the mystery of the missing children in their town. While searching, they uncover the unsettling truth of what’s lurking in the sewers. We especially love the original, but if you aren’t interested in watching a clown movie twice (we don’t blame you), then check out the 2017 re-make! When you find out, you’ll float too


Classic horror movie lovers can’t get through a Halloween season without a visit from Michael Myers. With 10 knife-wielding serial killer flicks to choose from, you can’t go wrong. This is the perfect chance to get caught up as the final Halloween will be released in 2018. We cant wait!

The Conjuring

If you’re into the paranormal, The Conjuring is frightening in all the right ways. The movie follows the true events of Ed and Lorraine Warren’s paranormal investigations. With Ed, a demonologist, and Lorraine, a clairvoyant, this duo confronts powerful beings from another plane of existence.

The Shining

Another horror movie classic! The Shining is the psychological thriller of a family man gone mad. Jack Nicolson’s stellar performance evokes chills as he turns on his own wife and child. But what made him go insane? Was it the twins in the hall, the woman in the tub or the writing on the walls? REDRUM.

Sleepy Hollow

As the Legend of Sleepy Hollow goes, the ghost of the Headless Horseman roams through the night searching for his head. Ichabod Crane, played by Johnny Depp, investigates a series of brutal murders and finds many roads leading to the supernatural. Try not to lose your head while solving this bloody mystery!

Have a safe and spooky Halloween!
