In the Stacks: Scary Movies
October is my favorite month—the chilly weather, crunchy leaves and houses pimped out for Halloween just make me happy. It also puts me in the mood to snuggle in and watch a good horror flick. I’m not talking about one of the slasher films that seem to dominate theaters these days, but a movie that plays with your mind and creeps you out so much that you need to turn the lights on, like Rosemary’s Baby
or Wait Until Dark.
Earlier this year, the folks at Entertainment Weekly
posted a list of what they consider the twenty scariest movies of all time
. It’s nice to see some of my favorites on it.
