Top Halloween movies for getting the shivers
With Halloween not far away it is time for horror movies in the cinema halls and multiplexes in your block. If you do not find a proper chance of visiting a cinema hall then an arrangement could very well be made at your place. All you need to do is create a perfect creepy setting with spooky paper garlands, cheesecloth spider webs, deranged Halloween centrepiece, vampire pumpkins, and glowing ghosts. For the entire evening, a set of the scariest movies could be kept for the bravest friends that you have invited. In case you have a home theatre then an entirely spooky environment could be created at home.
