    So, every year I will make a list of movies to watch for Halloween (most of them are not family-friendly), so if you want to kind of follow along, you can watch this thread and I'll add a movie every day.. Since it's already Oct. 4th (because I was lazy in posting this thread) I'll put the first 4 days automatically. And most days will have more than one movie especially if there are sequels, prequels, and pre-sequels.

    Movies: The Shining (1980) and The Mist (2007)
    Facts about the movies: Both of these Steven King novels that were recreated into movies, and collectively made over $55 million worldwide. The shining was filmed at Oregon's Timberline Lodge for the Overlook Hotel.

    Movies: The Thing (1962) and The Thing (2011)
    HEADS UP: Personally, I will say the 2011 debut of The Thing is unimportant to the franchise. That movie is optional to watch.
    Facts about the movies: The Thing (1962) is not in any way a sequel to the movie Things From Another World (1952). At that time, many critics hated the movie, but nowadays it is more critically acclaimed.


    Movies: The Ring (2002)
    Facts about the movie: Until Stephen King's It (2017), this movie was the highest-grossing horror remake in history, with a total worldwide gross of over US $249 million.

    You get a break from scary movies today, so here's some funny ones! :)
    Movies: Boo!: A Madea Halloween, Boo 2!: A Madea Halloween
    Facts about the movie: Youtubers: Liza Koshy, Dorn Mazzeti, FouseyTUBE, Kian Lawley, and Jc Caylen all appear in this movie. Either as the killer, frat boys, and other minor roles.

    I suggest watching the re-make of The Shining which took place at the Stanley hotel instead of the older version
