Having A Good Shocktober 2016?

As you can see, Ernest Borgnine doesn’t like rats, but he’s just frightened by how much fun this Halloween season has been so far!

Shocktober 2016 is counting down to Halloween night, and here is a look at some of this month’s movies:

“Godzilla” Is Back!

Yep, the new “Godzilla: Resurgence” film is out, so you can see the big guy on the big screen! Check out the new trailer here:

If you want to see some classic cult horror, then gnaw on this film:

willard

Not only was “Willard” a big hit, but Michael Jackson sang the theme song for the sequel “Ben!”

On the 13th day of Shocktober, I naturally focused on the most famous “13” of all:

On the 14th day of Shocktober, I took you overseas for some bloody Italian “gallo” films:

your-vice-is-a-locked-room-and-only-i-have-the-key

These slasher films are bloody good fun for Halloween – here are a bunch of options:

I also stopped by France to share with you a moody, nudity-drenched horror film:

the living-dead-girl

French Director Jean Rollin made some great horror films, see them here:

Back in the US, I took a bloody good ride on the “Terror Train”:

terror-train-1980-everett

This early 80’s classic stars scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis – check out the trailer here:

Here’s a different kind of scream queen – a naked one with a tail!

If creepy accommodations are your thing, then you’ll want to hang out with Jessica, who has some “wet” friends coming over to visit her:
