This was filmed on Halloween 1986 and it's one really awesome concert. During the concert he uses a baby doll, a boa constrictor, a guillotine and much more. He even has people dressed in creepy costumes. You even see Jason Voorhees for a short moment. This whole concert is great for Halloween.

How Dare Nobody Vote This

19 Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth

29 Van Helsing

This one's got almost every classic movie monster- Werewolves, Vampires, Frankenstein's Monster, even Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

30 The Silence of the Lambs
31 Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

How is Pirates of the Caribbean scary or Halloween-themed?

32 Child's Play
33 The Thing
34 Rose Red
35 Dark Ride

It's the wrong picture, but I'm pretty sure there is a movie called Dark Ride. Two twin teenage girls get murdered while going through an amusement park attraction called "Dark Ride". The psychopath responsible escapes from the mental hospital and six friends on a road trip board the ride, unaware of the killer.

This isn't a movie. It's a power metal album.

This movie is based on Jack the Ripper.

38 Scooby-Doo and the Witch's Ghost
39 Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island

Godzilla movies not the new one - SOUTHPARKFANHH

The Addams Family is great for Halloween. They are a weird and spooky bunch.

Great movie! Victoria is my favorite character.

Don't you make no evil spirits come out!
