Halloween Must Watch List (and what to wear while watching!)

October 11, 2019

It was a dark and stormy night that the team at Erstwilder HQ sat down to watch some of our all-time favourite horror flicks.

As we all know nothing goes better with a scary movie than an Erstwilder Halloween design! So, here are 8 must-watch Halloween haunts as well as our suggested wears for your own Halloween viewing party.

Be afraid, be very afraid.

1. Beetlejuice (1988)

Why we love it

A fantasy-comedy-horror featuring an iconic, irrational performance by pre-Batman Michael Keaton. If you ever thought you had the housemates from hell, well, let’s just say you’ve never encountered anyone quite like the self-described bio-exorcist, known as Betelgeuse

What to wear while watching

Neitherworld, Neitherworld, Neitherworld, wait what was that one rule again?
Click here for a strange and unusual addition to your wardrobe.

 

2. The Thing (1982)

Why we love it

An exercise in paranoia and suspense. Join a group of American researchers in Antarctica, kept inside by the raging cold. Are they really alone out there? And what happened to the researchers at the Norwegian base? And why is Kurt Russel so dreamy?

What to wear while watching

Itsy Bitsy Spider Brooch, for a creepy, crawling homage to a horror classic.

3. Bride of Frankenstein (1935)

Why we love it

The follow-up to Universal’s Pictures 1931 horror hit, based on the famous novel by Mary Shelley. This beautifully shot and staged sequel continues the story of Dr. Frankenstein and his misunderstood ‘monster’.

What to wear while watching

A Girl Named Elsa & A Boy Named Boris, name a more apt pair for the spooky season. We’ll wait.

4. House on Haunted Hill (1959)

Why we love it

Perhaps a little cheesy by today’s standards, this cult classic has an all-time great set-up: an eccentric millionaire, invites five people to a party he is throwing for his wife, in an allegedly haunted house, promising to give each $10,000 provided they stay the entire night in the house.

What to wear while watching

Creepy Cranium. He thinks he's scary, but deep down he's just a funny bones. And for added eeriness why not rent an old haunted house for your viewing?

5. The Evil Dead 2 (1987 )

Why we love it

It’s the perfect getaway, an isolated cabin with your best friends and an ancient evil lurking in the dark woods beyond, what will Ash Williams do to save the day? The second sequel on our list is a rollicking rollercoaster of hair-raising hilarity.

What to wear while watching

Keresh the Kind Deer Brooch, he won’t ever laugh at you we swear.
Click here to add Keresh to your outfit. Groovy.

 

6. The Cabin in the Woods (2012)

Why we love it

It’s the perfect getaway, an isolated cabin with your best friends… wait a minute. The ultimate horror homage, with twists, turns and a knowing nod around every corner. This one’s for the horror-nerds who think they’ve seen ‘em all.

What to wear while watching

Drop Dead Gorgeous Brooch, scary never looked so good.
Click here to add a gore glam look to your spooky night in.

 

7. Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956)

Why we love it

Proof that horror doesn’t need to be over-the-top to be effective. This one is played straight and is all the more terrifying because of the mundane, matter-of-factness of the ‘quiet invasion’. Who knows, perhaps they're here already!?

What to wear while watching

Erstwilder Essentials, a subtle suggestion that you are really you.
Check out our essentials range here.

 

8. Fright Night (1985)

Why we love it

How well do you know your new neighbours? This one’s responsible for popularising many of the vampire myths we know about today. If your fellow film fans insist upon an invitation before entering your house, something could be up.

What to wear while watching

Bite Night Earrings, because you don’t have to be undead to be as cool as Brewster.

Purple Passion

This beautiful floral piece is a birthday gift for my sister who has a passion for gardening. No doubt she will adore it. 😊

fantastic.

I made a late order, and it got to me the next day. the necklace did not make my neck go green. its so stunning much nicer in real life then online. i am so happy with this store and all your help and love for us. Thank you.

So pretty

These dreamy earrings are so much prettier IRL! Neutral to wear with EVERYTHING!!

Cutest bunny brooch

The size of the smaller bunny brooch makes it easier to pair with my outfits - I tend to go casual/rustic or 1970s-style sundresses, and the details aren't lost in miniature. It's pretty cute too! Have received some compliments from colleagues and friends while wearing it. :)

Lucky dip

Love the feeling you get when a message saying your brooch is arriving today and the excitement of discovering that your lucky dip is in fact truely lucky!
Latest one was the lest we forget rosemary brooch, super stoked when that one arrived, I shall be wearing it with double pride!
