When it comes to the best Halloween movies, people harbor some pretty strong opinions. Just this month, The Huffington Post published a piece outlining 11 reasons why "The Witches" is the only movie you need to watch on Oct. 31. Some people like nothing better than "Dawn of the Dead." Others believe Halloween wouldn't be Halloween without a showing of "The Blair Witch Project."
We asked our Facebook fans about their favorite all-time Halloween thrillers. And, as usual, they had a lot to say. Here are nine movies our readers believe should not be missed on All Hallows' Eve.

3) "Night of the Living Dead!," said Peggy Bell Nolan.
4) "The Exorcist," said Jan Gloster Allen.
