Generally we revisit the Halloween franchise but folk were becoming bored so we decided last year to ramp it up with themes.

From memory comedy got a run, plenty to choose from there.

This year we are going with "the Devil inside", titles are starting to build, but eventually we'll narrow it down to five or so.

The Exorcist

The Omen

The Last Exorcism

Paranormal Activity

The Exorcism of Emily Rose

This year we are going with "the Devil inside"
I'm curious?
Are you specifically going with Christian demon movies or will you be exploring all types of demons?
A few I've already watched may fit the 'devil inside' theme...
Dreamkatcher (2020)
Clown (2014)
The Vatican Tapes (2015)
The Eye (2008)

Plus there's a whole list of films which deal with possession which technically may be considered the 'devil inside'.

The Possession of Michael King
The Possession
The Sickness of Louis Frost
Witchboard 3 The Possession
Grace: The Possession
The Possession of David O'Reilly
The Strange Possession of Mrs Oliver
This House Possessed
Voodoo Possession
The Possession of Joel Delaney
Ava's Possessions
The Possession of Gail Bowers
The Possession Experiment
The Evil in Us
Ouija Possession
The Possession of Janet Moses
Family Possessions
The Possession of Hannah Grace
Shall We Play
The Atticus Institute
The Devil Incarnate
The Devil Inside
The House Where Evil Dwells
Demon Knight
666: The Demon Child
Demon Exorcism: The Devil Inside Maxwell Bastas
Demons at the Door
The Demon Murder Case
Anything for Jackson

Evil Dead movies
The Insidious movies
The Conjuring movies
The Annabelle movies
The Amityville Horror movies
Demonic Toys movies
The Puppetmaster movies
Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde movies
From Beyond movies
The Mirrors movies
Night of the Demons movies
Outpost movies

Do you consider serial killers and mass murderers as 'devil inside'? How about twisted individuals and sadistic gangs?

Vampires are technically demons which take over a person. Some witchcraft movies feature demon possession. There's also a bunch of ghost possession movies where a ghost takes over a person which acts like a demon. There's demon possessed dolls, even a demon possessed car and bulldozer. Lest we forget demon possessed places like houses, graveyards and public venues.

Yesterday I watched...

Hey Tom, no we're going with possession movies this year. We're including a few comedies, to keep things light, but later in the evening going to hit out with some shockers ... including The Exorcist at midnight!

I find the Exorcist funny. You should check out the Atticus Institute, I like that one too. When I restructured my genre folders I put possession and demon movies under Religious Horror.
There are many films which feature demon possession where the theme of the film is not demon possession but it ends that way. Many times you gotta watch the movie to determine the genre classification. IMdb is really vague and misleading in its genre classifications.
Since I find most syfy originals and asylum movies as funny you might also consider House of Bones.

Over the last few days I watched...

The Wolfman (2010)
Sleepy Hollow (1999)
Creepshow 2 (1987)
The Devil Below aka Shookum Hills (2021)
