With October officially here and Halloween quickly approaching, people are in the mood to be scared. Haunted house, escape rooms, and other frightening events are taking place all across the world. While those are great to visit, did you know that you can get that same frightful feeling without even leaving the comfort of your home?
There are tons of amazing horror films you can watch to get in the Halloween spirit, but instead of watching a standalone film, why not watch a whole franchise? October is the perfect month to binge on some classic Halloween movie franchises (although we maintain that horror flicks are great any time of the year). Without any further ado, let’s check out the best and most famous horror movie franchises.
We will start off the list by taking a look at one of the most disturbing and gory on this entire list, in the Saw franchise. The franchise revolves around the Jigsaw killer, who traps his victims in a variety of different traps or tests, which test their will to live and often results in their awful demise. The movie is full of horrific scenes and situations, so viewer discretion is definitely advised before you check out these films. This bloody franchise has spawned seven movies so far, which have collectively grossed well over $850 million at the box office. There is also a new addition coming out in October 2017, so you can finish off this Saw movie marathon by checking out the eighth film, called Jigsaw, in theaters.
