Halloween Movies to Watch

Halloween is just around the corner, so get ready to get scared! Gone are the days of trick-or-treating (unless you have children you go with), but that doesn’t mean that you are left with nothing to do on Halloween! In this week’s Heritage Court Apartments Blog, we’ve got a few movie suggestions that will get your heart pumping.


“Seven young outcasts in Derry, Maine, are about to face their worst nightmare -- an ancient, shape-shifting evil that emerges from the sewer every 27 years to prey on the town's children. Banding together over the course of one horrifying summer, the friends must overcome their own personal fears to battle the murderous, bloodthirsty clown known as Pennywise.”


“Two people wake up in a decrepit underground chamber. They're chained to two pipes. Within their reach are hacksaws that aren't strong enough to cut through their chains, but more than capable of slicing through bone and flesh. Between them is a dead man with a .38 in his hand. They also find a note, which instructs one of them that unless he kills the other within eight hours, his family will be slaughtered. Unless they can outsmart the evil mind that's placed them in their situation, time is about to run out on their lives.”

The Purge

“In an America ravaged by crime and overcrowded prisons, the government sanctions an annual 12-hour period during which all criminal activity -- including murder -- is legal. James Sandin (Ethan Hawke) and his family face the ultimate test when an intruder drags the vicious outside world into their home. James, Mary (Lena Headey) and their two children struggle to survive the night while trying not to turn into monsters like the ones they are striving to avoid.”
