Well, it appears I am stuck inside all day and night due to it being another wonderful day here in the ever so awesome state of Wisconsin. Hence the sarcasm. Any who, spending the day indoors has inspired me to come up with this list. Except, the movies I name probably are not going to be what you expected– actually, they will be the complete opposite. Instead of me listing off movies that take place in snowy climates (if you want that, click here), I will be naming off horror flicks that take place in nice, warm weather. Why? I think it’s almost like escaping into a little tropical haven, even it’s a brief escape from the cold reality of this wretched weather. And I couldn’t imagine a better way to spend a snow day other than watching horror movies. There’s something just about the sex and gore that makes ya feel all warm and comfy, ya know? 😉
I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997)
Set in the beautiful WARM town of Southport, North Carolina IKWYDLS is always a fun watch. Featuring some of the best chase scenes, and based off of the book with the same name by Lois Duncan, this film will always go down as being one of my original favorites.
Friday the 13th (1980)
Nothing gets me more in the mood for summertime than watching Friday the 13th
Taking place in the fictitious town of Amity Island, New York comes this amazing classic that perhaps will not make you wish you were on the beach right now.
The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) & The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003)
Now, I have included both because I am fan of both films. I think they’re both great horror pieces in their own ways. Set in Texas (well, duh), these films will not only make you sit on the edge of your seat but will also make you those miss hot and muggy days.
The Bay (2012)
Taking place on July 4th in Maryland, a mysterious illness plauges a small town originating within the bay. One of my favorite films of the last few years, this underrated gem packs a punch.
The Hills Have Eyes (2006)
Set in the horribly hot desert, this horror flick is one of the best remakes I’ve ever seen. Not to mention, this film boasts an awesome theme song.
By far one of my favorite Aussie horror flicks, set in the Kakadu National Park, a group of tourists and their guide are stranded on a mud island surrounded by a blood thirsty crocodile. Also, if you like this one, be sure to check out Black Water (2007).

The Shining is the best horror movie to watch during a blizzard!
