Spooky season is officially back in full force! The air’s getting colder, the leaves are changing colors, and Halloween is officially in sight. While many of us relish in cozying up with a tension-filled, gory, or downright eerie horror film year-round, Halloween season truly brings out the horror fanatic in even the wary or easily frightened.
