Hello there! Welcome to The Dan Cave! Is that a sexy costume you’re wearing? No? Oh, you just must be that attractive all the time.

In case you’ve been in a coma or living under a rock or in a coma living under a rock, you might know that this week, Jessica Chobot, Malik Forte, and I took a trip to Doomdeath Manor at the invitation of the mysterious “G.”

Never one to turn down an opportunity for tea and light snacks, I set about exploring the Manor. When I stumbled across a particularly spooky seance room, it got me thinking — this room wasn’t intended to give people the creeps; it just does. That same sensibility — the accidental terror factor — is a recurring theme in movies over the years. Many, many films have endeavored to tell a heartwarming story only to have it devolve into the stuff from which nightmares are forged. So, on today’s episode of The Dan Cave, I’m giving you 5 new films with which to scare yourself silly this Halloween, 5 films that didn’t even realize how terrifying they truly were.
