Yes, Halloween is a beloved holiday across the country, with many of us opting to throw parties, take our little ones Trick or Treating, or to plan a cosy night in with popcorn, candles, and of course, a scary movie.

But which movie will you choose this year? If you love the thrill of being scared, perhaps this latest poll that revealed the scariest Halloween movie of all time may come in handy.

A study carried out by Beds Divans has revealed that cult horror classic The Blair Witch Project is officially the scariest Halloween movie you can switch on, and to be honest, we’re not surprised. If you’re not familiar with the story, it follows a group of film students who set out to make a documentary about a legendary local murderer named The Blair Witch. The students get far more than they bargain for however, after they go looking for her in the woods and lose their way.
