What better way to spend a crisp autumn night than popping some popcorn and snuggling up to watch a scary flick? Here I have compiled two lists of movies for you to watch either with the whole family or for those who are looking for more mature viewing with some truly terrifying tales and films.

The Witch is based off of actual primary source accounts from the 1600s of a series of disturbing events that befell a New England family. Their youngest son goes missing and the oldes daughter Thomasin is blamed by the family. The family descends into paranoia and madness and more family members go missing. The Witch brings the viewer back 400 years to a time where going for a walk in the woods was a much more sinister endeavour.
