In between those Halloween calisthenics of jumping up from the sofa to hand out candy to trick-or-treaters, you might want to squeeze in a horror flick or two to get into the holiday spirit.

Time Out has some recommendations, thanks to its writers and “horror experts” who compiled a top 100 list of the scariest movies of all time.
