The month of Halloween has almost come to an end, and be that as it may, horror movie lovers are already preparing their list of "horror" films for a "scary" marathon. Without further ado, we've got you covered with our list for your Night of the Dead celebration.

1. "Mr. Harrigan's phone number."

An adaptation of the great Stephen King, Mr. Harrigan's Phone tells the story of the friendship between a young man (Jaeden Martell) and a wealthy elderly lord (Donald Sutherland). When he dies, a young man decides to text him at the funeral to express his grief. But what I didn't expect was to get a response.

2. "Mist."

Fog invades a small town in Maine. Fear of the unknown and the creatures that live in the fog will bring out the best and worst in the group, who have taken refuge in the local supermarket.

3. "Platform".

A true phenomenon of Spanish cinema, the sequel of which will be released in 2024. "Platform" is an allegory of rich and poor, but mainly social strata. In a dystopian future, a group of people live together on different levels in a building into which a table of bountiful food descends hundreds of platforms and floors. Those at the top have everything, and those at the bottom have only leftovers. Bloody thriller for food.

4. "Bird Box".

Until recently, it was one of Netflix's most watched horror films. Starring Sandra Bullock, Blindsided portrays a world in which a supernatural presence causes people to kill themselves if they open their eyes.

5. "Live".

It's quite strange to see Ryan Reynolds outside of comedy these days, but Live is about everything but being funny. A worthy successor to the Alien franchise, in which the crew under the command of Jake Gyllenhaal and Rebecca Ferguson must survive a strange creature.

6. "It."

In the 90s, one movie created an entire generation of people who were afraid of clowns. Updated and divided into two parts, we have before us perhaps the most terrible film of this group.

7. "Split".

One of James McAvoy's best roles. The British actor plays Kevin, a young man with 23 faces of fear who kidnaps three teenage girls.

8. "A Quiet Place."

Unlike Bird Box, A Quiet Place does not allow its protagonists to make noise. That's why they learned to speak using gestures to prevent terrible creatures from hunting them.

9. "Get away."

A young African American man visits the wealthy family of his white fiancée. It's time for Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend Rose (Allison Williams) to meet their future in-laws, so she invites him to spend the weekend in the country with her parents, Missy (Catherine Keener) and Dean (Bradley Whitford). At first, Chris thinks his parents' "overly" complacent behavior is due to their nervousness about their daughter's interracial relationship, but as time passes, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries leads him to the unimaginable truth.

10. "Lighthouse".

The horror film The Lighthouse, directed by Robert Eggers, is a gem that explores the human madness that exists between two lonely lighthouse keepers, portrayed by Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson. Ephraim (Robert Pattinson) and Thomas (Willem Dafoe) live side by side in the middle of an isolated rocky island to take care of the upkeep of a lighthouse for four weeks. Thomas is a veteran, and Ephraim is a newcomer, replacing Thomas's previous assistant, who went crazy. Thomas asks Ephraim to work hard, and in return he wants only one thing: to be able to climb the lighthouse and see its light.
