Glen Hunt, the resident skeptic on the long-running British ghost hunting
show, 'Most Haunted', admits that horror films aren't really his bag. He said, "depending on my mood, I much prefer action or a thriller or comedy in my film choices. Or all three in one."
However, like all of us around this time of year he's been known to be drawn to the odd creepy movie. He said, "I've seen a fair few horror films over the years, so perhaps I'm drawn to some of them purely for the thriller aspect more so than the slasher/macabre elements that come as a matter, of course."
Glen, who's been a part of the 'Most Haunted' crew alongside Yvette Fielding since 2015 told us, "it's the older horror flicks which stay with me the most, probably because, when I first watched them, I was younger than the prescribed film rating."
He added, "some of them may not have aged too well either, but that doesn't matter too much as far as I'm concerned. Back in the day, they did the job. Perhaps just enough, to ignite a deep-seated hidden interest in the genre, whenever something is released in contemporary times."
Take a look at the list of the ten supernatural movies that have stuck with Glen the most over the years and the reasons why they're so memorable.
10. I Know What You Did Last Summer
The one message I got from this was to pay attention when you’re driving. Not only did this not end well for the poor soul in the road. But things didn’t work out too well for the ones in the car, either. Bloody morons. I can’t decide if they got what they deserved - and that thought doesn’t sit too well with me.

"Do you like scary movies?" Well, not as I mentioned, not as a general rule, but this had Courtney Cox in. And some of the films I’d seen in my younger years set me up to actually enjoy this brutal teen-slasher of a film. So very cloak and dagger and so very clever, right through to the end.
8. Nightmare On Elm Street
The original one of the series. There was no need to give us any more after this. But if the studios make them, we lap it up. My God, I even remember being fished-in to go to the cinema and watch the 3d film 'Freddy's Dead-The Final Nightmare'.
If there's one thing this made sure I did when I was a kid and that was to never, ever leave the television switched on. You can't imagine how chuffed I was when ITV went 24hours instead of switching off at night.
A maniac on the loose. Surely everyone's nightmare?! And at Halloween too. As if people of a nervous disposition weren't scared enough, already.
5. The Omen
OMG, they killed Patrick Troughton's character in this film. How could they? Not because he played a priest, he was Dr. Who. And what a brutal way to do it. How could they?!
4. An American Werewolf In London
One quote sticks with me from this film. The words uttered by Brian Glover's character in that thick Northern accent, "Beware the moon, lads. And stick to the road". Sound advice! Bloody tourists, though. Why didn't they listen?
3. The Fog
A 100 years is a long time to hold a grudge with a town. And as the fog slowly envelopes that coastal town in California, you know it's not going to end well for the innocent residents.
2. Patrick (1978)
I never imagined a comatose hospital patient could cause so many disturbing incidents. If you agree that telekinesis makes for a great film theme, raise my right arm.
1. The Lost Boys
Go home 'twilight saga'. Teenage vampires were cooler in the 80s. Brilliant casting with Keifer Sutherland, Corey Feldman and Cory Haim as well as an outstanding soundtrack featuring the likes of INXS and Roger Daltry, this one is my ultimate favourite.
