Spooky season is just around the corner, and it appears that 2023 SI Swimsuit rookie Nicole Williams English has been preparing for the occasion since her photoshoot in Dominica late last year.

While on location in the Caribbean with photographer Yu Tsai and the SI Swimsuit team, the entrepreneur and new mom of one revealed her list of the scary movies that she thinks everyone should watch. Williams English highly recommended The Grudge, The Ring, The Exorcist, The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Insidious and Hereditary.

The model stated that while she’s “very picky about her scary movies,” one in particular stands out among the others. “You have to see it,” Williams English noted of Hereditary. “It freaked me the hell out. You have to see that one, it’s like crazy.

The official SI Swimsuit TikTok account shared the footage earlier this week, which drew a few comments from fellow horror movie lovers.

“She is me, I am her,” one follower noted.

“Also add to the list: SINISTER,” fellow SI Swimsuit star Kamie Crawford suggested. “Also this is very Scorpio much content.”

The video served as not only great seasonal inspiration for our next movie night, but also reminded us how much we adore Williams English’s first brand photoshoot. She was seven months pregnant when she posed for the magazine, and her daughter, India, whom she shares with husband Larry English, was born in January. When Williams English walked the Miami Swim Week runway in July, she carried her baby daughter in her arms for the sweetest full-circle moment.
