It's Halloween time, which means its time to dress up, eat candy and get the bageezus scared out of you. To get you in the mood, you have to watch scary movies. I mean, what's Halloween without a ghost haunting you, being stalked by a serial killer, and hanging out with dead...things? Now since I stay away from scary movies- or anything scary at all- I had to enlist the help of my co-workers. I asked them to give me a list of the scariest movies they have ever seen. They enlightened me with long lists of movies filled with horror, thrills, and gore. They also laughed aloud when I told them I have never been able to watch Jaws, which is the reason you may see it on this list.
