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?

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.

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.

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.

Waratah Warmth Brooch

I loved it so much I bought another for my friend

I loved this brooch so much when I bought it on the day of release that I bought another one for my friend's birthday and she loves it as well! So much in fact I saw photos of her wearing it onstage at an open mic on the weekend. Such a beautiful collaboration.

Gorgeous galahs

Love the design and colour scheme in this scarf. The galahs are gorgeous!! As always it's a lovely lightweight neck scarf, with good length allowing
you to wear it multiple ways. Made from 100% Polyester, with a velvet chiffon feel. It's my new favourite.

Fantastic

Beautiful items, excellent service , quick post.
