Every time you shower, every time you turn off the lights and lay in bed - they’re there. The chill inducing fears brought to us by horror movies new and old are about to settle in for what could prove to be the most fearful month of the year.

Gather your favorite ghouls and goblins as Enzian embarks on a month-long celebration of all that is the creepy, candy coated Halloween holiday. From the 1932 version of The Mummy to one of our  personal Halloween favorites Hocus Pocus, Enzian boasts a Halloween roundup thats sure to induce girlish screams and monster laughs alike.

Hocus Pocus kicks off the haunts and horrors creeping on to the big screen on October 1, followed by the 1988 thriller Pumpkinhead, 1986 classic Aliens, and just when you thought you couldn’t scream anymore The Texas Chainsaw Massacre rounds up the 13 film series.

Amidst the terrors and sweaty palms there will be time for laughs however as you can bring out your own monsters to the Kid’s Halloween Party: Wallace & Gromit in the Curse of the Were-Rabbit you can laugh as a family in your best crypt couture enjoying games, food, and a costume contest.
