We spoke to a variety of Chatfield students about their favorite scary movies that are entertaining to watch during the Halloween season. These lists are both for the horror movie lover and for the faint of heart, as the lists include classic, averagely scary, actually scary, and extremely cheesy movies that will get you ready for the spookiest time of the year. We hope you can enjoy at least one of these movies before the end of the festivities this year as many of these will leave you with a sense of pumpkin-y Halloween-y goodness. However, Chatfield does not advocate that you go out watch the R rated movies unless you’re 17 and above.
