Linda Cook, Film Critic, MultiMedia News Producer and Crime Reporter: ‘The People Under the Stairs’ (1991) – “My husband and I both enjoy horror with an edge. I always will remember seeing this movie soon after we were married in 1991. We both were surprised by it. This is adult material, and it earns its ‘R’ rating. It’s an under-sung movie directed by Wes Craven that’s a blend of comedy, horror and social commentary.”

Matt Holderman, MultiMedia Journalist: ‘As Above, So Below’ (2014) – “Probably my favorite horror movie of all time, and arguably the best of the ‘found footage’ genre. I love the unique feel of found footage movies, and this one does it better than any other, taking you on a journey through the Catacombs of Paris. It’s a fantastic choice for a setting, and in my opinion, any movie that can make you feel like you’re there in person yourself is unmatched.”

As a young kid who loved monsters, creepy things and watching Svengoolie, I can see my younger self doing the same thing. The short also has wonderful music and a great feel.”

‘Vincent’ (IMDb)

Sharon Wren, Digital News Producer: ‘The Addams Family’ TV series (1964) – “They’re creepy and they’re kooky, mysterious and spooky and all together ooky. The classic TV series from the 60s isn’t too freaky and is great for having on in the background to set the mood. Pluto has a dedicated Addams Family channel, which is perfect to have running during a party. Gomez and Morticia are #couplesgoals.”
