So I was at Walmart Pharmacy the other day and was talking with one of the people who work there, who commented that she had spent the whole morning before coming into work binging on Horror Movies and she wished could have stayed home to watch more., me, on the other hand, I am more of a Shaun of the Dead type of horror movie watcher, but hey a good scare is good for you every once in a while.

Halloween is just 24 days away, which seems hard to believe especially if you haven't been outside since St. Patrick's Day. And a new poll of Americans has determined the most iconic Halloween movies.

Did they forget your favorite movie or did it make the list?

30. "Midsommar", 2019, 1%

29. "It Follows", 2014, 1%

28. "The Ring", 2002, 2%. I'm assuming it's the American remake.
