Haunted Salem: Live

Jack Osbourne

“Oh tough one, when I was a kid The Thing terrified me. The Aliens trilogy was my absolute favorite. But now… I don’t watch scary movies. It freaks me out way too much.”

Katrina Weidman

“A few of my favorites- Scream, Friday the 13th (the original), and Rosemary’s Baby. Also, It and Fire in the Sky terrified me when I was a kid!”

Adam Berry

“There’s a place in my heart for fun and campy horror movies like Hocus Pocus, Death Becomes Her and Beetlejuice and old Hitchcock movies. However I do love a good psychological thriller…”

Chip Coffey

The Exorcist. I first saw the film when I was in college and it was terrifying! Still is!!!”

Amy Bruni

“My favorite horror film is probably The Shining. It terrified me as a child, because my parents let me watch it, (which probably explains a lot about me), but now I just find it to be a masterpiece of a film.”

The Holzer Files

Dave Schrader

“A real classic, Night of the Living Dead is my all-time favorite. However, in recent years I loved The Conjuring and Sinister. I believe those two movies were great suspense, scary movies that really got into my head.”

Cindy Kaza

“This is a tossup, for sure! Pet Sematary 1989 is one of my favorites but The Exorcist is probably the scariest.”

Ghost Adventures: Serial Killer Spirits

Zak Bagans

“Bram Stoker’s Dracula

Billy Tolley

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning

Aaron Goodwin

13 Ghosts is my favorite and scariest. When the ghosts come at u so fast freaks me out.”

Jay Wasley

“I’m definitely a big fan of the classic slasher films like Halloween, Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street, and then the psychological horror films of Lars von Trier, Gaspar Noe, and Micheal Hanke, but my favorite of all time has to be The Shining by Stanley Kubrick.”

Ghost Nation

Steve Gonsalves

“Horror movies are my all-time favorite, I’m slightly obsessed. Maybe very obsessed haha. Favorite – Return of the Living Dead.”

Dave Tango

“Lon Chaney Sr.’s Phantom of the Opera.”

Jason Hawes

“Movies these days seem to be more about jump scares than story lines. My scariest movies would be The Exorcist, the 1982 version of The Thing, the 1978 Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

Destination Fear

Dakota Laden

“I saw Black Christmas (1974) at a very young age and I never forgot it. This movie is SO overlooked. It inspired many classic horror movies to come. Nothing like a horror movie centered around Christmas.”

Chelsea Laden

“Honestly, Paranormal Activity scared the heck out of me. It hit just a little too close to home for many reasons.”

Tanner Wiseman

“Robert Eggers’ The Witch is a movie that I could not stop talking about after I saw it in theaters. I was captivated the whole way through. The score and the final scene, that’s when my mind was blown.”
