Halloween wouldn’t be complete without watching a few scary movies along the way. From classics such as Psycho (1960) and Beetlejuice (1988) to more recent films like The Last House on the Left (2009) and The Eyes of My Mother (2016), this holiday is all about embracing the creepy, scary and gruesome.
