Scariest Halloween Movies in Anticipation of Splatter-Rama!

Yeah, everyone's horny on Halloween, dressed up like slutty turnips or sexual dachshunds. But, you're all forgetting that this is a holiday centered around fear! Thankfully, the gory Fort Laudy film night Splatter-Rama promises they "are going to eat you" on October 31. And thank the gods of zombies for that.

This time around, they're screening Dawn of the Dead for only 5 bucks (as part of the Fort Lauderdale Film Festival, apparently). The George A. Romero 1978 classic is guaranteed to make you piddle in your panties out of zombie-related fright -- so maybe don't bring a date. Another ridiculously wonderful Halloweeny treat is an all night happy hour -- with drinks costing a mere 2 bones -- and more importantly, free candy.

We spoke with horror movie super fan Mikey Ramirez of Radio-Active Records, who hosts the event along with Cinema Paradiso and Fuck FTL. He offered commentary on his favorite Halloween flicks for the big day. Click and learn, people. Click and learn.
