Halloween is upon us, the time of year to celebrate all things spooky. Whether you’re heading out trick-or-treating or dressing up for a Halloween party, a Halloween staple is drawing the curtains, switching off the lights and watching a horror film.
Last year we rounded up the scariest films of all time, so we thought we’d do the the same this year to make sure you’re in for a scream this Halloween. And of course, you can raise more than a scream when you shop for your Halloween costumes, movies and treats via Give as you Live.
