John Carpenter's 'Halloween,' released in 1978, became an instant horror classic -- the film follows teenager Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) as she's stalked by a masked killer while babysitting on Halloween night. 'Halloween' has spawned numerous sequels, a remake (with its own sequel), and has inspired countless horror films in the 35 years since its initial release. We look back on the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
Though we got to see the sequence in full at Comic-Con 2013, Guillermo del Toro's contribution to 'The Simpsons'' upcoming Halloween special, "Treehouse of Horror XXIV," might make the episode the scariest yet. The visual horror master dug through the vaults to present an extended opening sequence chock full of classic monsters and those of his own design, so who made the cut?
I grew up going to theme parks. While most families were taking vacations to Hawaii, my family packed up the truck, threw us in the back with a camper shell as our only protection (seats belts?), and nothing but the road ahead of us as we trekked to Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm and Universal Studios every year.

As an adult, my love for theme parks is still as strong as it was as a child, and this year I got to visit Universal Studios' Halloween Horror Nights, one of the biggest Halloween events held every year in Los Angeles.
Audiences got their first taste of the 'Friday the 13th' franchise, which is now 12 films strong, when the original horror flick hit theaters in 1980.
'Friday the 13th' certainly wasn't a star-based film -- in fact its biggest name at the time was coming off an almost decade-long break from films. However, the cast did contain one actor who went on to have a long, successful career, and another who belongs to a legendary entertainment family. See what the cast of 'Friday the 13th' is up to these days below.
This Halloween, most of us will be doing one of two things (or both): Watching scary movies, and gorging ourselves with candy. But you needn't feel guilty after your third 'Friday the 13th' movie and your tenth fun size Snickers bar: a new study has found that watching horror movies can actually burn hundreds of calories!

It's easy to feel ambiguous about Halloween -- so much delight and so much excess, every sign of joy on the face of a true believer paid for with a grim, hobbled, hollow-eyed walk of shame home on one broken high heel -- in my case, a shame specifically because my "Sexy Ripley in 'Aliens'" costume was, like, totally both interpretive and respectful. But there can be a mid
Even with films like 'Scream,' 'Behind the Mask' and 'The Cabin in the Woods' exposing horror's biggest tricks for all to see, horror films continue using them like proven liars yet again asking for trust
If you're looking for a good scary movie, you can watch movies online or stream them directly to your TV this Halloween.
