Get Your Gore On! A Guide to This Month's Horror Movie Lineup

Just about this time every year, we crack open our trunk full of DVDs and VHS (Of course we still watch VHS) and dust off our horror movie collection. No matter how many times we've seen The Exorcist, the head-turning scene still freaks us out. With the spooky season upon us, there is no reason to sit on your couch relishing in Drew Barrymore's demise in Scream all by your lonesome. This month, Houston's silver screens are jam-packed with showings of your favorite classic horror flicks. To make your slasher-loving existence that much easier, here is your go-to guide for ghoulish movies playing around town.

Wednesday, October 12 Shaun of the Dead QUOTE-ALONG (West Oaks) Alamo Drafthouse West Oaks Maybe this isn't the scariest of movies, but it's got zombies, and they are totally hot right now.

Thursday, October 13 The Thing Alamo Drafthouse Mason (Katy) An alien life form with the ability to take over other bodies is on the loose and no one knows who may already have been taken over. Ahh!
