Put aside your pumpkin spice lattes because Halloween isn’t only about pumpkin picking and Instagram worthy autumnal pics. No, Halloween is also that one time of year where darkness is always lurking around the corner, and your fears may be played out on screen.
Whether you get a good fright after watching infamous horror films, such as, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and The Exorcist, or walking through a haunted house with your friends, it triggers a part of your brain that spikes your innate fear.
Well, though your flight or fight reaction may be triggered, don’t run away just yet. We all grew up playing “would you rather” — and this Halloween edition of the game is no joke.
Play with your friends, or by yourself, but for this witching hour, you’ll have to make some difficult decisions.
Are you scared yet…?
Would you rather be caught in a nightmare dream state with Freddy Krueger and his sharp glove or be trapped in your house with Michael Myers and his knife?
Some important information to keep in mind before making a decision — Freddy Krueger has killed 35 people over eight films while Michael Myers has 94 murders under his belt.
Would you rather have to spend a summer at camp Crystal Lake with Jason trolling the grounds or have to live in the Paranormal Activity house with your family for a summer?
Hockey mask wearing killer or ghosts? We’ll take our chances with the ghosts, TBH.
Would you rather let your kid play with a Chucky doll for one week or with the Annabelle doll for three days?
It’s a Chucky and Annabelle face-off — and I do not want to play.
Would you rather get scared and start crying for the rest of your life every time someone asked you, “How are you today?” or walk around with sheet over your body for one year pretending to be a ghost?
That’s going to be one long year.
Would you rather be trapped in a cabin for a night with zombies outside your door or be trapped with a group of your best friends for one night, and one of them is possessed by a demon?
We just need to know if Rick Grimes will be in the cabin with us…
Would you rather be trapped in an insane asylum and have to survive for a week after the patients get released or see dead people for a whole year?
Where’s Bruce Willis when you need him?
Would you rather have to solve your way out of one of Jigsaw’s death-defying puzzles or be kidnapped by Leatherface’s family and try to escape?
Reminder, Leatherface’s family is full of cannibals.
Would you rather get a visit from Samara Morgan from The Ring after watching her videotape or wake up to Kayako from The Grudge in your bedroom?
Both have long black hair so that doesn’t help.
Would you rather be trapped in the American Horror Story Murder House or trapped in the AHS Hotel Cortez?
The Murder House comes with housekeeper Moira O’Hara while Hotel Cortez’s guests include serial killer James March and The Countess.
Would you rather try to outrun Ghost Face from Scream or outrun Jack Torrance from The Shining?
We’re not sure if we want to end up at The Overlook Hotel.
Would you rather stand in a dark room in front of a mirror and summon the Candyman or fend off Pennywise, the clown from IT, with your group of friends?
Remember, you have to say Candyman five times…
Would you rather get abducted by the Demogorgon in Stranger Things or be trapped at your high school prom with Carrie on her murder spree?
If Dustin, Mike, and Lucas are our friends, we’ll take our chances.
