For those familiar with popular films and television, the Greystone Mansion is easily recognizable. The grand staircase in the entrance is said to be the most filmed and photographed set of stairs in all of Hollywood.

What makes horror truly effective is its credibility and plausibility, hence why we gravitate towards true crime and the grisliest murder stories to ever grace the front page of any major publication. We crave what is tangible, and if a film is based on true events, it resonates with us longer since it can be documented and researched to great lengths, all based on factual and empirical evidence. These stories do not originate from a single writer’s mind, but rather from a collective consciousness based in a dark, grim reality.
It’s the spookiest time of the year, but we get it. We’ve all stayed up too late watching The Blair Witch Project or reading I’ll Be Gone in the Dark while later setting up booby traps around our house to catch a would-be murderer. Just me? It’s perfectly fine and very adult to celebrate Halloween in a more spoofy than spooky way! Countdown to the best day of the year with these not-so-scary Halloween classics!
