Hello darlings how are you? I hope you’re doing well, enjoying some of this crisp cool weather, staying hydrated, and taking advantage of some Fall and October activities.
Today I’m listing the top boogyman movies to watch this season!
I based my list on a few things. First, the characters are supernatural in nature, meaning they can’t truly die because they live on through stories and urban legend, keeping the lore alive, and they terrorize children.
Freddy Kruger / A Nightmare on Elm Street Franchise (ONLY the movies with Robert Englund)
In Wes Craven’s classic slasher film, several Midwestern teenagers fall prey to Freddy Krueger, a disfigured midnight mangler who preys on the teenagers in their dreams — which, in turn, kills them in reality. After investigating the phenomenon, Nancy (Heather Langenkamp) begins to suspect that a dark secret kept by her and her friends’ parents may be the key to unraveling the mystery, but can Nancy and her boyfriend Glen solve the puzzle before it’s too late?

Jason Voorhees / Friday the 13th Franchise
Crystal Lake’s history of murder doesn’t deter counselors from setting up a summer camp in the woodsy area. Superstitious locals warn against it, but the fresh-faced young people — pay little heed to the old-timers. Then they find themselves stalked by a brutal killer. As they’re slashed, shot, and stabbed, the counselors struggle to stay alive against a merciless opponent. (Source: IMBD)
