SeaWorld Orlando is continuing the drive-in movie nights it has been hosting since earlier this summer, but with a Halloween twist.

The new 'Flicks & Frights' series will be a regular weekend occurrence starting this Saturday and running through Halloween night, with scary movies screened in the SeaWorld parking lot.

F&F airs a more family-friendly film earlier in the evening and then a real nail-biter as a late show on the same night. (The Purge this close to the election! The Exorcist on theme park property!)
