Orange Umbrella's Favorite Scary Movies

There’s nothing like a good horror film to really get us in the Halloween mood on a dreary autumn night. Living in Miami this time of year, the leaves don’t fall, the temperature stays at 80 degrees, and at times, the closest you’ll get to black cats crossing your path are panicked iguanas scampering across US1. Nonetheless, you can still carve yourself a pumpkin, light yourself some fall-scented candles, and bundle up with some popcorn to watch a frightening flick. With this in mind, we decided to ask our oranges what bone-chilling treasures of the silver screen they liked best. Whether they be perplexing pictures about the paranormal, or kids’ movies from the 90’s that feature young Sarah Jessica Parker acting as a wicked witch, here are some of our favorite scary movies:
