10 Scary Movies That Will Scare You Half to Death

10 Scary Movies To Watch If You Want to Creep Yourself Out | Lifestyle Queen Bee

If you’re looking to spend Halloween at home on the couch instead of out partying in a cheap costume that cost you more than it was worth, check out one of these truly scary movies to give you the creeps (Warning: If you scare easily, be sure to invite a friend over to help get you through these!)

  1. Hush (2016)
    A woman (Maddie) who becomes deaf in her early teens moves out to the woods alone where she encounters an unwelcome stranger who gives her the worst night of her life. This thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat & make you second guess those plans of living in the woods.
  2. The Witch (2015)
    Even though this movie is set in the 1630s, there is nothing boring about it. The story is about a family who are exiled from their New England settlement & build their new home next to a forest. Plagued by black magic, possession and witchcraft, this story is sure to keep you guessing what else will happen to this family next.
  3. As Above, So Below (2014)
    This terrifying movie is about an archaeologist who is obsessed with finding the philosopher’s stone, and puts together a team to help her find it underneath Paris. Unfortunately for this group, they have entered their personal hell.
  4. The Conjuring (2013)
    This movie freaked me out, especially knowing this movie is based on real events. Paranormal investigators Lorraine and Ed Warren are asked by the Peron family for their assistance when they begin to experience paranormal activity in their new home.
  5. The Cabin In The Woods (2012)
    When five college friends arrive at a remote cabin in the forest for a getaway, they have no idea what awaits them. One by one, they fall victim to backwoods zombies, but there is something else afoot. Two scientists are manipulating things, but even as the body count rises, there is more at work than meets the eye.
  6. Lake Mungo (2008)
    A ton of strange things start happening to a family after their youngest daughter accidentally drowns while swimming in a lake.
  7. Them (2006)
    A story about a couple that lives in the middle of the woods who are terrorized after receiving repeated phone calls. The fact this movie is based on actual events will only further creep you out.
  8. The Hills Have Eyes (2006)
    This is by far THE SCARIEST MOVIE I HAVE EVER SEEN. I kid you not, I could barely make it through this and have vowed to never watch this again. For those of you who have not sen this & are brave enough to make the attempt, this movie is about an American family on a road trip to California who have the horrible luck of having their car break down & are left stranded in a barren atomic zone established by the U.S. government. Things go from bad to worse once they discover that the wasteland is inhabited by a band of bloodthirsty mutants who begin to stalk & terrorize them.
  9. The Descent (2005)
    Would you ever willingly venture into a cave? Me neither but the same can’t be said for this group of girlfriends who go on what they think will be a fun underground exploration that ends up turning into one hell of a nightmare. Literally. I watched this during the day and was still freaked out by bedtime.

What movies did I miss that you would recommend as a ‘must see’?


10 Steps to Host a Kickass Thanksgiving

With Thanksgiving just around the corner (It’s next Monday here in Canada), the thoughts of Turkey, Gravy and Cornucopias might be dancing around in your head (think sugar plums at Christmas).

  2. Set a gorgeous table (on a budget)

  3. Don’t forget about the kids!

  4. Cue the music!
    While keeping things quiet during dinner time is key to ensure the conversations around the table is the focus, make sure you have a great Thanksgiving playlist for the pre and post-dinner activities.
  5. Prepare delicious appetizers
    Your guests may be there for a spectacular dinner, don’t forget some of them may not have eaten in a few hours so keep their inner hangry monsters at bay with a few delicious appetizers. Try one (or a few!) of these 29 Thanksgiving appetizers.
  6. Have a signature drink
    Skip the typical wine offerings (or save it for dinner) and spruce up the gathering with a signature drink for the evening, like this Caramel Apply Sangria.
  7. Make a delicious turkey
    Is this your first turkey? Don’t panic! It’s a lot easier to prepare than you think! Take the guess work out and learn how to roast the perfect turkey here.
  8. Have a memorable dessert

  9. Play some party games!
    What’s a game without a little fun? After everyone is full of turkey and gravy, the natural thing to want to do is sit around and not do much of anything. Don’t let your guests become lethargic (& ultimately kill your party vibe early!) – bust out a few games to keep the fun going & everyone moving! Gather some awesome ideas here.
  10. Send everyone home with a little somethin’ somethin’
    Now that it’s getting late & everyone is ready to head on home, to help than them for stopping by, why not give the gift of leftovers to your guests? Personally, i would be happy to take home some turkey and gravy to make post-Thanksgiving turkey sandwiches at home. Wow your guests one last time with this FREE Thanksgiving Leftover Printable Bag.

While you’ve got a GREAT outline of what to include in your Thanksgiving dinner, you can add to it as you see fit. First time hosting Thanksgiving? This post should help you feel a little less frazzled and a little more Martha Stewart.
