BEST HALLOWEEN MOVIES TO WATCH HIGH

Jeremy Bouvet

Hallow’s Eve is just around the corner, and although the season is typically filled with frights and scares, us stoners like to keep our anxiety to a minimum and take in some laughs. With that in mind, I’ve assembled for you the five best movies to watch on Halloween, while high.


THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2

Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 [4k Ultra HD / Blu-ray Set]: Amazon.ca: Tobe  Hooper: Movies & TV Shows

We’ve all seen a Texas Chainsaw movie or two, and although many of them are quite funny – especially that reboot from a couple of years ago – there’s only one in the franchise that was seemingly made with the intention of being un-ironically hilarious in mind. Leatherface, everyone’s favorite chainsaw-wielding maniac, targets disc jockey Vanita "Stretch" Brock and Texas lawman Lefty Enright in their macabre abandoned amusement park. Lefty is played by none other than Dennis Hopper, and the comedic film features heavy-metal visuals and slapstick gore, making it a thrilling and grotesque experience.


TROMEO AND JULIET

Tromeo and Juliet (1996) - IMDb

Troma Entertainment has the largest catalog of grotesque and hilarious movies filled with monsters, gore, sex, and more in the world. Furthermore, the man behind the magic, Lloyd Kaufman has not only helped launch careers, but has appeared in some legendary movies himself, such as Guardians of the Galaxy. Speaking of GOTG, writer and director James Gunn actually got his start with Troma in the form of the cult classic comedy Tromeo and Juliet. The movie’s about a New York filmmaker who falls in love with the daughter of a former partner who stole his art-film business. The film is a loose adaptation of Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet and features extreme sexuality and violence. The film's title is a blend of "Troma" and "Romeo and Juliet", and is narrated by Lemmy Kilmister, the lead singer of Motorhead.


CABIN IN THE WOODS

The Cabin in the Woods (2011) - IMDb

Cabin In The Woods is a self-aware horror film that challenges stereotypical horror tropes, and offers scares and laughs alike. Five college friends arrive at a forest cabin for vacation, only to find themselves being attacked by zombies. Two scientists, Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitford, might be manipulating the situation, but there's more to everything than meets the eye. The flick stars Chris Hemsworth and is a good thrill ride with unexpected twists, and from personal experience, I can tell you that it’s best enjoyed while baked.


TUCKER & DALE VS. EVIL

Tucker and Dale vs Evil (2010) - IMDb

Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil is a light-hearted horror comedy with a clever script that spoofs gory horror movies set in the woods. Tyler Labine and Alan Tudyk take a backwoods vacation that turns violent when college students mistake them for murderous hillbillies. With all of the violence and partial nudity and innuendo that was still allowed in the early 2010’s, Tucker & Dale are a hilarious duo that keep audiences entertained and on the edge of their seats throughout.


CLUB DREAD

Club Dread (2004) - IMDb

My personal favorite out of all of the movies featured in this list, Broken Lizard’s Club Dread is equally as thrilling as it is hilarious and violent. In a comical twist on the classic murder mystery or whodunnit genres, Club Dread sees a bunch of youngsters vacationing on a secluded party island ban together in order to figure out who’s killing everyone. It’s like the Scooby-Doo movie but with boobs and blunts and beers. Furthermore, it’s written by, directed by, and stars all of the same people who brought you Super Troopers and Beerfest, rendering it one of the most underrated slasher films of all time.
