What’s your choice of Halloween film?

If you were to organise a film night for Halloween, what film would you choose?

Vouchercodes.co.uk has asked just that question of a small group of bloggers, with the winning entry being aired at a private screening at the Charlotte Street Hotel at the end of October.

Of the shortlist of eight films they’ve selected, I’ve seen surprisingly few. I was tempted to nominate Psycho, but the risk of ending up having to sit through Gus Van Sant’s pointless remake instead of Hitchcock’s masterpiece steered me away from that (likewise Nightmare on Elm Street, Dawn of the Dead and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre).

So my vote is going to The Shining. Which, to my shame, I have never, ever seen before…
