Us Americans sure do love us some horror movies.
To find out which genre favorites are popular in each state and a handful of cities across the country, Halloween Express took a look at the top 20 movies from IMDb’s highest rated horror feature films with at least 1,000 votes, and analyzed the Google trends data to see where people searched for what movie most frequently.
The results? Alien is the most popular horror movie in most states, followed by Psycho and The Exorcist. In terms of cities, Friday The 13th is the most popular horror film in New York City and Bram Stoker’s Dracula the most popular in D.C. John Carpenter’s Halloween is the most searched for film in Orlando, whereas a few miles away in Miami, Carrie dominates search engine results. And, perhaps unsurprisingly, The Shining, which takes place in the Rockies, is most popular in Denver.
Halloween Express even created a list of streaming sites that you can watch said-horror films at, which is beyond helpful and a great way to ensure that you’ll have something to watch this Halloween.
