With Halloween quickly approaching, I thought I would do a re-cap of “The 5 Scariest Movies of All Time” via Redbox…

  1. The Exorcist 
  2. A Nightmare on Elm Street
  3. The Shining
  4. Halloween
  5. The Silence of the Lambs

CRC did a “13 Days of Halloween” this year, which was a lot of fun for me and made me realize I had actually seen more scary films than I had anticipated…lol
