We've made it to October, and that means one thing -- Halloween is almost here!
Along with the leaves, candy, costumes, and cooler temperatures, Halloween also means one especially spooky seasonal activity: scary movies! And when you take already scary movies and combine them with the looks-so-good-it-could-be-real resolution that is 4K, you get movies that are even scarier and more realistic than before.
To help celebrate the holiday, all of us here at your local electronics store have put together a bone-chilling and terrifyingly great list of 4K movies that you can binge and marathon this year to get you and your friends and family in the spooky, seasonal spirit. Before the witching hour is upon us, let's check them out!
Beetlejuice. Beetlejuice. Now that we've gotten that out of the way, we are happy to let you all know that Tim Burton's classic "Beetlejuice" has just hit 4K, just in time for everybody's favorite holiday. Whether you are a longtime fan of the film -- or you’re checking it out for the first time -- this is the best way to watch Michael Keaton as he dons that infamous striped suit.
1984's "Gremlins" taught us a lot. It taught us that looks can be deceiving and that even cute little cuddly creatures can turn deadly. It taught us that Steven Spielberg could produce movie monsters both large and small. But most importantly, it taught us all to never feed our pets after midnight.
While the sequel never really managed to capture the magic of the original, Halloween is always a great time of year to revisit the mogwai, even if the film is set against a certain other upcoming big holiday in December.
We've included the spoofy and spooky, but we wanted to make sure to include some high-level horror for those of you out there that really like to have your pants scared off.
And what better way to scare yourself silly then with not one, but two different horror films. This double feature brings together modern master Jordan Peele's "Us" and "Get Out" in one set that is sure to keep you up at night.
With both 2019's "Us" and 2017's "Get Out" available together in pristine 4K resolution, you've got hours of horror just waiting for you -- with both films giving you a picture that's closer to Peele's vision than what you would get with a normal Blu-ray.
This is a Halloween movie list after all, so we'd be remiss if we left off 1978's original "Halloween." Visit Haddonfield -- this time in 4K -- and see just what little Michael Myers has been up to since the 80s.
"Halloween" has spawned sequel after sequel -- as well as a reboot -- and there's a reason the film is literally synonymous with both the genre and the holiday. In other words: Don't miss out on this one.
We've gone through comedy horror and horror horror, but we're going to wrap up this list with a paranormal film of classic proportions -- even if those proportions are at times covered with ectoplasmic goo.
Ghosts, demons, Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd are all along for the ride in the Ecto-1 in this comedic and supernatural stroll around New York City. And hey, it's even preserved in the Library of Congress' National Film Registry. Take that, Casper.
No matter how you choose to celebrate Halloween this year, you can't go wrong with the right set up of electrifying electronics, terrifying TVs, and spooky speakers. If you are looking for any of the above, give us a call or ride a pumpkin on over to us today! We know you'll be glad you did.
