The ‘Scare your pants off’ Option: The Shining

Not for the faint of heart, there is a reason this monster from the imagination fo Stephen King has risen to such great heights of acclaim, it continues to bring the creepy, continues to make you jump, to make you bite your fingernails, to bring you to edge of your seat and into the confusing mind of a psychopath. Happy Halloween!

The “Never Sleep Again” Option:Halloween

I might recommend leaving the lights on for this one, Given the title, it’s hard to resist watching this frightening account of a lone killer rampaging through suburbia on the day of Halloween. Grab a buddy, though, please don’t watch this alone. Preferably watch it in broad daylight. Eek!
