Trick or treat? Give me something good to eat! Halloween, short for All Hallows’ Eve, is slowly approaching. Since 1745, Halloween has played a significant role in pagan festivals, such as celebrating and remembering the dead.

Moreover, spending time with your family or friends watching classic horror films is a great way to honor the spirit of the dead. Most of the actors and actresses who starred in these vintage horror films below are no longer walking amongst the living, but their spirit lives forever through the television screen.

1. The Mummy (1932)

Imhotep went to great lengths to be reunited with the ancient Egyptian princess Ankhesenamun, the love of his life. The top scientists and archaeologists often find hidden ancient Egyptian mummies and artifacts. What if they awaken an angry ancient prince like Imhotep? I think we all can agree that it’ll be an extremely horrifying sight to see!

Directed by Alfred Hitchcock, this terrifying psychological horror will make you think twice about staying at your local motel. Anthony Perkins stars as Norman Bates, a troubled man consumed with guilt. In Psycho, Bates preserves his mother’s corpse, even dressing as her to cope with his guilt of murdering her.

Bates’s split personality disorder enables him to portray his mother subconsciously, such as murdering any woman he finds attractive to “appease his mother.” One of those women was Marion Crane, portrayed by Janet Leigh. After embezzling $40,000 from her boss, Crane needed a place to escape. When she stumbled upon the Bates Motel, her fate was sealed.

What did I just watch? This is exactly what you’d ask yourself once you’ve watched Society from the beginning to the end. Without a doubt, this 80’s cult classic horror will make you side-eye celebrities, influencers, public officials, and other social elite groups.

Bill Whitney, portrayed by Billy Warlock, is a typical teenager from Beverly Hills who follows the beat of his own drums. But his sister and parents are a part of a secret society that endorses “impeccable breeding.” When Whitney discovered the truth about Beverly Hills’ upper class, his world turned upside down, causing his mind to play tricks on him!
