Halloween Horror Shots 2 photo copyright Cheri Loughlin

Halloween horror movies receive huge followings no matter how cheesy or predictable the plot line.  Someone creepy lurks in the dark, women in high heels always trip and fall and there is always a particular character that steals the show as the number one psycho that haunts dreams for eternity.  No matter how sinister the character or bone chilling the nightmares become for weeks after the movie, crowds flock to see sequels for years to come to relive the spine tingling feeling of fear all over again.  Halloween season is the perfect time of the year to swallow those fears, literally and figuratively.  Bottoms up to the characters who terrorize the big screen.  Cheers!
