October is the month of everything scary and mysterious. It’s the month when you have an excuse for looking scary in the mornings and of course the month when you can dress up as your favorite characters. It’s especially the best time to stay home and watch scary movies while you cower behind a pillow or a bucket of candy. So for the sole purpose of giving you nightmares we have created a list of movies that will make you wish you hadn’t watched them at all.
Nightmare On Elm Street

Scream is about a serial killer loose in the small town of Woodsboro. There are four movies about a masked killer that goes around murdering everyone and taunting them with trivia questions. Will they ever find out who that killer is?

A classic movie based on a possessed little girl and her frantic mother seeking help from two priests. When the priests decide to exorcise the demon that’s possessing the little girl, Regan, one of them is dismissed from the exorcism after showing weakness from the demon putting his life in danger.
