4 Classic Horror Movies You Should Watch this Halloween

Halloween is right around the corner and its always fun to celebrate with a horror movie binge. When it comes to horror flicks, the classics can often be the best. Here are some old school horror movies to get you in the Halloween spirit! Psycho (1960): This movie caused a lot of controversy when it came out in 1960, and it is considered to be Hollywood’s first “slasher” movie. Directed by Alfred Hitchcock, “Psycho” is as creepy as it gets; complete with a scary old woman and her weird, taxidermy-obsessed son. “Psycho” was remade in 1998 (starring Vince Vaughn) but, trust me, the classic 1960 version is better.

The Little Mermaid is Swimming to the Big Screen!

The Little Mermaid is coming to theaters…Again! But this time the fairy tale romance of our favorite crimson haired siren and her Prince Charming will be told in an exciting live action version. Disney is already making Sleeping Beauty come to life this spring, however, it will be told from the evil sorceress Maleficent’s (played by Angelina Jolie) point of view. So why not do the same for the other Disney Princesses? Director, Sofia Coppola, is taking on this project adventurous.

The movie has no set release date, but that doesn’t stop fans from speculating which actress will slip into Ariel’s purple seashell bra. So far the #1 fan pick is Emma Watson. She has already worked with Coppola so our guesses may not be too far off. Some of the actresses rumored to be up for the role are Amy Adams, Anna Kendrick, Emma Watson, and Sophie Turner. So who would you love to see play Ariel? By Ashley DeLuce
