Similar to “Scream”, “Halloween” is a slasher horror movie franchise that features a good number of films, 13 in total, and the story centering on Michael Myers, a masked killer that targets its victims every Halloween.

In the first movie, six-year-old Michael Myers murders his teenage sister, Judith, on Halloween night in 1963. Fifteen years later, he escapes from a mental institution and returns to Haddonfield to stalk and kill babysitter Laurie Strode and her friends. Dr. Samuel Loomis, Michael’s former psychiatrist, tries to stop him, but Michael’s reign of terror leaves a trail of bodies in its wake.

In the second film, Laurie is rushed to the hospital after being attacked by Michael. Michael follows her to the hospital, where he continues his rampage, killing nurses, doctors, and patients. Laurie and Loomis must once again confront Michael and try to put an end to his killing spree.

The subsequent installment in the series follows Michael Myers as he returns every Halloween to continue his killing spree, bringing with him terror to the town of Haddonfield.

So, if you’re looking for the best slasher movies like “Scream”, consider checking out the “Halloween” film series.

Friday the 13th

Movies like "Scream"

Again, similar to both “Scream” and “Halloween”, “Friday the 13th” is another popular slasher horror movie franchise with the story centering on the popular “Jason Vorhees” character.

The first film introduces Camp Crystal Lake, a summer camp where a series of murders took place years earlier. The story follows a group of counselors who attempt to reopen the camp, but they are stalked and killed by an unknown assailant who is later revealed to be Pamela Voorhees, the vengeful mother of a boy who had drowned at the camp years before.

The second film introduces Jason Voorhees, who dons a sack over his head and begins a new wave of killings. The film takes place several years after the first and follows a group of camp counselors who become his victims.

The third film sees Jason acquire his iconic hockey mask and continue his murderous rampage.

Similar to “Halloween”, we see Jason continue on his killing spree in subsequent installments of the film which seems to be never-ending.

A Nightmare on Elm Street

Once again, another slasher movie franchise featuring a killer targeting its victims, but in this case, there’s a twist.
