Depending on the type of popular cinema you consume, you’ll have a very different idea of what Halloween is meant to be. While on the one hand, there are thousands who see Halloween as the perfect excuse to don a skinny nurse outfit or bunny ears and head to the nearest alcohol festival, but to others consider it sacred – a continuation of the ancient Gaelic festival, Samhain which marked the end of the harvest season and the start of the “darker half” of the year, namely winter.
Samhain was widely celebrated in Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man and was considered that time of year when the veil separating living and otherworldly creatures like the Irish supernatural race called Aos Sí, the spirits of the dead and fairies was at its thinnest.
According to many historians, the Church postponed the date of All Saints ‘Day to November 1 (Samhain was traditionally celebrated between October 31 and November 1), and eventually All Saints’ Day and Samhain merged to become Halloween. It was totally in the image of the Church which had a penchant for appropriating dates and deities belonging to pagan religions.
But you didn’t come here for history, did you? You came for movie recommendations. Here is.
