Top 6 Horror Movies to Watch High
Published on Oct 2, 2021
Spooky season is here! While some may scoff at those of us who love Halloween movies and pumpkin spice lattes, they make fall one of our favorite seasons! During this time of year, it only makes sense to check out some horror flicks and play some fun video games, right? Well, as the seasoned stoner will know, few things go better together than some good pot and a scary, spooky, or unsettling horror movie. As long as those strains have lower THC levels, watching horror movies high is some of the most fun you and your loved ones can have without leaving the house!
That's why this article is going to break down some of the scariest horror movies you can quickly and easily watch from the comfort of your home while enjoying some top-quality cannabis.
Let's get right into the countdown, shall we?
Let's start the countdown with one of the most classic horror movies around, The Thing. John Carpenter's body-horror classic is easily one of the top 10 horror movies of all time. Thanks to its mix of a terrifying setting on a remote scientific research facility in the middle of a snowy Antarctic tundra, horrific practical monster effects and a legendary performance from Kurt Russell as R.J. MacReady, this upsetting and psychological thriller is a perfect option to get you thinking between passes of your favorite joint rolled up with a high-quality weed strain. This horror classic is easily one of the best horror movies on Amazon Prime!
If you got a little bit too high to focus on a feature-length horror flick, we recommend this horror anthology series. After all, we've all been there before. You're too high after too many hits on the bong, pipe, or joint, and all of a sudden you're thinking about how much space your tongue takes up in your mouth instead of the plot of whatever you were watching. Southbound's interesting story-telling structure full of twists and turns will get and keep your attention. If you were a fan of films like V/H/S, one of the best horror movies in the found-footage genre, this one will be perfect for you and your friends between hits. Find it streaming on Amazon Prime and Hulu!
Tucker & Dale vs. Evil
You know how sometimes that best snacks are a mix of sweet and salty? Well, sometimes the best horror movies are the same way -- with a little bit of comedy mixed into them as well! Featuring as many laughs as it does scares, Tucker & Dale features two hillbillies mistaken for a pair of serial killers by a group of wayward and dumb college students. From there, hijinx ensue that are equally as hilarious as they are bloody and full of gore. If you're looking for something that's just as funny as it is scary, this is one of the best horror movies streaming. Anyone with a Sling TV or Amazon Prime subscription should be able to stream this one quickly and easily.
Let's finish off this list with another one of the best horror movies of all time. If you know anything at all about the horror genre, there's no fighting that The Shining is easily one of the top 10 horror movies of all time. From the horrific psychological thriller direction of the genius Stanley Kubrick to the stunning and unsettling performance of Academy Award winner Jack Nicholson, The Shining is by far one of the best options for watching horror movies high. Streaming now on HBO Max for anyone to check out while they're smoking up, it's a fantastic option for getting spooked while stoned.
Let's go with a low-budget flick for the next entry on the list with 2016's Lights Out. With a budget below a mere $5 million, Lights Out massively overachieves in terms of effective scares. This allegory for depression and mental illness is a perfect choice to watch while stoned because the concept is so simple, yet so terrifying. If the lights go out, there's a monster coming for you. When those lights turn back on, you're safe for now. So simple, yet so much opportunity for spooky results. This is easily one of the best horror movies on Hulu that you can stream right now as you light up!
While this found-footage documentary-style horror flick might be too intense for some while they're blazed out of their minds, the more resilient among them who aren't as prone to falling for jump scares might be the way to go. Easily one of the best horror movies on Netflix that can be quickly and easily streamed for a spooky night in, the first in the now long-running Paranormal Activity series is the haunting story that introduced many to the idea that the creaks and sounds they hear from down the hall in the middle of the night might be a vengeful spirit haunting you and your family. Don't think about it too hard before the edible hits, however!
