Top 7 Halloween movies that will make your blood run cold
One of the easiest ways to feel the eerie atmosphere of Halloween is to watch a movie. Some movies will make you want to sleep with the lights on because you'll see ghosts, mystical creatures with knives, skeletons, or other things among the shadows and silhouettes in the dark.
Thus, take a blanket (to hide under) and your friends (to scream together at what you see on the screen), and get ready to be scared. We offer you the top 10 horror movies for an "uncozy" evening. Read more in the OBOZ.UA article.

5. Split (2017)

6. Platform (2019)
Director: Galder Gastelu-Urrutia
The plot. A giant prison. Criminals are kept on different levels and food is delivered to them via a platform. The prisoners at the top eat their hearts out, and the lower levels get what's left over from the upper levels. Every month, people are assigned to a new level at random, and they are allowed to take only one item with them. Rebellion is inevitable under such a system.
7. Sinister (2012)
Director: Scott Derrickson
The plot. Writer Allison Oswalt and his family move into a new house where the previous residents were murdered. The man writes mysteries, so he hopes that the real crime scene will inspire him to write a bestseller. He started sorting through the attic and found some movies that showed gruesome murders. Ellison was struck by the fact that all the short stories were united by the same masked figure.
