Default Halloween based films - Any Ideas?

The title says it all really.

I thought i would throw this out to you all.

Can anyone recommend any horror's set around Halloween.?

I have all 8 Halloween films, Rob Zombies remake and its dire sequel, Trick r' Treat, The Pumpkin Karver, Halloween Night, Dead Scared and the excellent Satan's Little Helper.

Anyone got any other suggestions?

Every Halloween, I do:

Halloween 1-3
Trick R' Treat
Trick or Treat (though not entirely Halloween themed)
Night of the Demons
Dark Night of the Scarecrow
The Halloween Tree (animated tales of Halloween)


That's all I got at the top of my head!

Dark Night of the Scarecrow has been noted, thanks Ranarchy.

I do have Night of the Demons and its poor remake. Forgot to add them to my list.

Trick or Treat (1986) - IMDb

Oh yea, Rob Zombie's "House of 1000 Corpses" takes place over Halloween

- but I'm probably the only person in the world who loves it and thinks it's his best film.

I don't think it's his best film, but I do like it very much. Can't understand why people are so against it. If people realised what a hard time RZ had making it, they might appreciate it more. Universal initially bankrolled the project, but when the execs saw snippets of it, they deemed it too nasty for their tastes and abandoned it altogether. The film sat around gathering dust until Lionsgate finally picked it up. It made a healthy profit at the box office and this was really the point when the major studios sat up and took notice that audiences wanted their horror hard and gory. So, in many ways, it was partly responsible for initiating the new wave of extreme horror at the box office. I like it, anyway, I think it's an interesting and unusual horror film.
