Halloween is just around the corner, which means one thing … let the spooky season begin! Whether you celebrate Halloween in a grand style or are just looking for a great movie marathon, the key to a perfect horror movie is always the setup. You are going to need a TV that can carry excellent black levels and shadow details, like the Hisense OLED TV A9H or the A85H.
The perfect TV setup for watching horror movies
Scary movies tend to be dark, with many dimmed attic scenes, night action and creepy monsters lurking in the shadows. The Hisense premium OLED TV series include pixel dimming which brings infinite blacks to your screen. Say goodbye to grey night scenes where you can barely see the action. Your new Hisense TV will enhance dark details and sharpen shadow lines, taking the movie experience to another level. Additionally, the vivid colours and much better contrast provided by OLED colour enhancement technology will widen the perfect viewing angle, making every seat in the room a VIP seat. Just select the Theatre Night mode in Picture settings and you are ready to go. And if you’re watching any of the horror movies below be prepared for some additional horror in a form of a stunning audio with all-round speakers – a combination of multi-channel surround, sonic screen, and front-firing speaker. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
Hisense’s curated Halloween movie list:
A CLASSIC: The Exorcist (1973)
One of the scariest possession horror movies of all time. This is the story of Regan, possessed by a demon, and the spine-chilling attempts of setting her free, make up a masterpiece of horror history.
STALKER THRILL: It Follows (2015)
A seemingly innocent hook-up gone wrong. A young girl is plagued by strange visions and a sense that someone (or something) is following her. Join the thrilling path of escape from her demon.
THRILLING SOUND EFFECTS: A Quiet Place (2018)
This post-apocalyptic horror movie takes sound effects to its peak thrill by taking advantage of the chilling silence surrounding the action. A family is forced to live in silence, terrorized by blind monsters that are susceptible to the slightest sound.
A PSYCHOLOGICAL MASTERPIECE: The Shining (1980)
An isolated hotel, ghosts, descent into madness and progressively violent behaviour ensues. The Shining will take you on a wild ride through the Overlook Hotel and its inhabitants. Simply terrifying.
BASED ON A TRUE STORY: Candyman (1992)
Inspired by a true 1987 murder in Chicago, Candyman dramatized the urban legend of the scary bogeyman, who appears if you say his name in the mirror five times in a row.
A BLOODBATH: Hostel (2005)
One of the best bloody horror movies of the new era, Hostel will take you to Slovakia, where backpackers and tourists are kidnapped to be tortured by paying clients. People are stabbed, sliced, shot, and dismembered in this splatter movie extravaganza.
A SCARY PARODY: The Cabin in the Woods (2011)
In a remote cabin, a group of friends, zombies, werewolves, blood sacrifice and full-bore horror insanity take place. The Cabin in the Woods is packed with horror movie clichés and references that still manage to create a spooky adventure.
If horror movies aren’t your thing, there’s still plenty to do to celebrate this spooky season. You can decorate your home and turn it into a haunted house, prepare delicious Halloween treats, dress up or throw an epic party – whatever makes you happy.
