Crimson Peak

Release Date: Thu. Oct. 15

Famous for his visually stunning movies, Guillermo del Toro directs this over-the-top gothic thriller. After falling in love with Sir Thomas Sharpe, Edith Cushing marries him and moves in with him and his cold sister in their extravagant, but eerie mansion. Her move spawns a series of horrifying events that causes Edith to second guess her choice- but it may be too late. Although not the most highly rated movie in theatres, Crimson Peak is still a fun movie to see in honor of the 31st.

Certainly not the most terrifying movie (it stars Jack Black, for Pete’s sake), Goosebumps can serve as a bout of nostalgia for anyone who’s grown up on R.L. Stine’s classic series. The 3D live-action and computer animated horror comedy centers around teen Zach Cooper and his strange new neighbors, Hannah and her mysterious author of a father, “Mr. Shivers.” After accidentally releasing demons from books onto their quiet town, Zach, his friend Champ, Hannah and Mr. Shivers must retrieve them and put them back where they came from.
