Many people enjoy watching scary movies to celebrate Halloween.  Some like gory slasher flicks, but I prefer creepy, moody, psychological films.

Some of the best are by RKO producer and writer Val Lewton (many of them directed by Jacques Tourneur).  They usually run them on TCM this time of year, so keep an eye out — or look for them on Netflix.

Yes, these posters make them look like low budget, B-movies (and they are) but they are actually thoughtful, well-made pictures.

Have you seen any of these?  What are your favorite Halloween movies?
