With All Hallows’ Eve just around the corner, the office is starting to get into a festive mood. What better way than with a scary movie?

While they can mess with you sleep and leave you unsettled—scary movies can help you manage your fears, improve immunity, and even help burn calories! (More on all that)

Let’s find out what our Diablos have to say about their favorite festive films and more…

Pumpkin carving, corn mazes, eating so much candy you wanna puke, and getting dressed up:)

Favorite scary/horror/Halloween movie?
The Strangers. The psychological side of the movie is just terrifying and this dialogue: “Why are you doing this to us?”…“Because you were home.”
Total creep fest!

Childhood memories of a first scary movie?
First scary movie was Stephen King’s It. Pennywise scared the f@#king sh!t out of me and since then I haven’t been a big fan of clowns.

Favorite scary/horror/Halloween movie?
Hocus Pocus. Because it’s Hocus Pocus.

Have any Halloween traditions?
When I was younger, my family owned a “limo-style” golf cart, so on Halloween my friends and I would decorate the cart & go trick-or-treating in style while our dads kept a keg occupied on the back of the cart. Completely oblivious to the fact that we were their DD’s for the night.

Favorite childhood costume?
My Gypsy costume when I was in 4th grade. My mother could not get me to take it off.

Speaking of my mother, her “wrecking ball” pumpkin last year was just awesome. Had to share.

Favorite scary/horror/Halloween movie?
Cabin in the Woods. A spectacular Horror/Sci Fi mashup. I also like that it’s both super creepy and funny.

Childhood memories of a first scary movie?
Not necessarily the first scary movie, but after watching The Blair Witch Project with my Dad when I was 12, I didn’t sleep a wink that night. Later that night, I heard creaking down the hallway and my door swung open and I yelled as loud as I could. I came to find out it was my Dad, who I had just scared half to death, checking on me because he couldn’t sleep at all either!

Favorite scary/horror/Halloween movie?
Nightmare Before Christmas. Some may argue it’s a Christmas movie, but the fantastic halloween theme and characters say otherwise.

Childhood memories of a first scary movie?
Not sure if it was my first or not, but I remember watching Predator as a kid, and being pretty scared of the alien when it was masked. In the scene where it removes the mask, I was hoping that it would be a person inside, and all would be right with the world. NOPE. Had a nightmare that night.

Favorite childhood costume?
My dad and I made a Ghostbusters costume. The proton pack was a cardboard box (painted of course) with various pieces attached to it. We attached straps from a backpack to it to make it wearable. We also built a trap, that had working doors and a Slimer inside. I believe we also built a Neutrino Wand that was attached to the pack with a hose, but I don’t recall what it was made of and if it lit up or anything.

Favorite thing about Halloween?
Decorations, Music, Costumes, all of it.

Mackenzie

Favorite scary/horror/Halloween movie?
Hocus Pocus. I don’t know that I can narrow it down to one thing. I love the characters for the Sanderson sisters, the ‘burning rain of death’, a talking cat and no parents for a night. I also think it’s really funny to watch now and think about all the jokes that were way over my head as a child.

Childhood memories of a first scary movie?
I have a pretty vivid memory of being terrified of Chucky from the Child’s Play series (not sure which movie) to the point of nightmares. However, my younger sister wanting to watch it over and over again. Pretty embarrassing, or creepy depending on how you look at it.

Justin

Favorite scary/horror/Halloween movie?
I love the first 3/4 of Stephen King’s It with Tim Curry as Pennywise. Quality took a nose dive at the end, but it’s such a great miniseries. Storm drains freaked me out for a long time.

Childhood memories of a first scary movie?
In addition to It, I fondly remember jumping on furniture then sprinting to my room every time I watched Tremors.

Have any Halloween traditions?
DIY. I’m a big fan of creating costumes and decorations by hand. My mom always sewed our costumes growing up and they were a-mazing. Check below for my porch last year.

Favorite childhood costume?
My Beetlejuice costume was pretty exceptional in second grade.

Favorite scary/horror/Halloween movie?
Ravenous. One line: “HE’S LICKING ME”. Terrible trailer, great movie.

Childhood memories of a first scary movie?
Watched part of the first Friday 13th. I was probably 8 years old…haven’t been right since.

Have any Halloween traditions?
It’s probably the same thing everyone else does, but we used to spread all the loot out at the end of the night on the kitchen table and my brother and I would barter for our favorite candies.

Favorite childhood costume?
I was a Robot in 5th grade. Flexible drain pipe and cardboard never looked so good.

Favorite thing about Halloween?
Seeing my kids all dressed up ready to go out.

Kelli

Favorite scary/horror/Halloween movie?
Jumanji. Each roll of the dice releases a monstrous jungle predator out of an enchanted board game. Angry elephants, psychotic monkeys, and killer plants and insects. Pure evil. Nightmares for years.

Favorite thing about Halloween?
Halloween is my favorite holiday!!!!! Decorations, candy, parties. And #1 – costumes!

Rachel

Favorite scary/horror/Halloween movie?
Halloween. The first movie is the scariest and I can only watch it on Halloween! I know what’s going to happen but it still scares me, just hearing the music freaks me out.

Childhood memories of a first scary movie?
Killer Clowns from Outer Space – this movie tormented me for years. Cotton Candy still gives me the creeps because of this movie.

Have any Halloween traditions?
Baking pumpkin seeds and making costumes, my Teletubby costume was my best creation.

Favorite childhood costume?
She-ra Princess of Power!

Favorite thing about Halloween?
Seeing everyone dressed up and having fun.

Michael Myers

Ari

Favorite scary/horror/Halloween movie?
So, it’s not scary, but I feel that watching “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” followed by “Garfield’s Halloween Adventure” has always been Halloween tradition for me.

Childhood memories of a first scary movie?
I watched Nightmare on Elm Street 4 by myself when I was about 8. I wouldn’t go near a bathroom sink for two days because I thought the sink handles were going to turn into hands and grab me when I tried to use them.

Have any Halloween traditions?
It’s a recent tradition, but for the past few years we’ve gone to the DeVotchKa Halloween show that is generally in the Denver/Boulder area.

Favorite childhood costume?
For me, it was always about throwing something together at the last minute so I had an excuse to go get candy.
