10 Classic Horror Movies To Watch All Year Round

10 Classic Horror Movies To Watch All Year Round

Who says the spookiness is only around during Halloween?

I know, I know. Halloween and the month of October is over, but who says the spookiness has to be? In my opinion, horror movies should be celebrated. I know that sounds crazy but I am a girl that thinks Halloween should be everyday. If you are like me and love scary things year-round, then this list is for you.

1. The Exorcist

This movie is a classic, and if you have not seen it yet, you should be shunned from society. I mean seriously, who hasn’t seen this movie?

2. The Shining

I’m not gonna lie, it took me a while to finally watch this one, but it is definitely worth it.

3. The Exorcism of Emily Rose

Now this movie will always be a classic. This was probably the first scary movie I had ever watched. Although it seemed much scarier when I was younger, it is still worth watching today. After all, it is based on a true story.

4. The Conjuring

These movies are fairly newer, but they do not disappoint. There are good suspenseful scenes and jump scares to keep you watching.

5. Sinister

This one is also pretty new. The originality in this movie is what makes it a hitter. I recommend watching this one and its sequel.

6. Rose Red

Now this one I had only recently watched. It is pretty cheesy, but in the end the creativity and scares makes this movie a good one.

7. IT

Now I’m sure just about everyone has gone and seen the remake of this one, and if you haven’t PLEASE DO. The original movie is pretty cheesy, but it is still good. The remake doesn’t disappoint either. I know some people prefer the original movies over the remakes, but this one wasn’t bad. I feel like because we have better graphics now, jump scares and suspense was better executed in this movie.

8. The Phantom of the Opera

I know this technically isn’t a horror movie, but it’s still a classic. Besides who doesn’t love the Phantom? They would also make for good Halloween costumes for next year.

9. The Nightmare on Elm Street

Some people argue over which is better: the older versions or the newer. Either way, you’ll probably be scared to sleep. Who knows if Freddy is waiting in your dreams…

10. Evil Dead

Who would I be to not include this one. The new movie pretty well executed, but if you want a good laugh to break in between the scariness, this is a good one. Not to mention, it is pretty graphic and gruesome, so get ready.

Although Halloween is officially over, that doesn't mean you can’t prepare yourself for next year! Obviously there are way more classic horror movies to check out, but these were some of my favorites. Enjoy, and long live Halloween!

Remember Zero From 'Holes'? This Is Him NOW

"Mr. Slick Living"


"Holes" was one of my favorite Disney movies for a really long time. It came out in 2003 when I was about 5 years old. There aren't many actors from the movie that went on to stay in the public eye. Well, except for Shia LaBeouf. That man made several statements but even he disappears from the watchful eye of the media every now and then.

The actor from the movie that I have been most concerned with, however, is Khleo Thomas. I will admit, I had quite the crush on Khleo when he played young Hector Zeroni aka Zero in "Holes", despite him being a good ten years older than me. But I quickly lost track of him over the years.

So relatively recently I got on Instagram to do a quick search for him to see what he was up to. And, if I'm being honest, see if he was as cute as I remembered.

Low and behold, I did find Khleo Thomas and if anything he is more attractive than I remembered. Now, a quick reminder, we fell in love with him when he looked like this:


And now he looks like this:

Now, me finding him attractive aside, let's take a look at what he's been up to over the years. Even though he's been out of the public eye every once in a while does not mean he has not been busy.

Since playing Zero, Khleo Thomas has done a multitude of things. He has scored a few more acting roles in shows like "Bones" and "Sons of Anarchy". Khleo launched an R&B;/rap career. He has become a widely entertaining Instagram and social media personality aka Mr. Slick Living.

On top of all of that, Khleo has become a successful entrepreneur as well. Launching two clothing brands of his own and sprinkling in a little male modeling in his spare time. What doesn't he do?

Khleo has two successful clothing/merchandising brands by the names of "Goddesses Living Amongst Men" and "Slick Living Apparel". Both are founded on staying "aware" (Khleo has mentioned several times over on his IG about why he doesn't use the word "woke"). They also give vibes of staying true to who you are and presenting yourself as the goddesses or Awerewolves you are.

Much of Khleo's brand seems to be rooted in the fact that he is unapologetic about who he is, where he is from, and what he plans on doing with his platform. He makes hilariously honest videos on Instagram and isn't shy about taking a dance break, or several.

Fans of Khleo (aka Goddesses and Awarewolves) seem to love that he is so willing to launch discussions with them and actually respond. His blunt opinions and responses make him much more approachable to everyone that loves him and sets him apart from other celebrities in this day and age.

He seems very in touch with his audience and is honest about how he feels about himself and others. The whole point is to be truthful and be open. That's something that I can get behind in 2019.
