The pumpkins are carved, and your costume is ready. All you need to make Halloween even spookier is a scary flick. Arts & Leisure has taken a trip to the graveyard and summoned the spirit of ten films that will add even more frights to your Halloween weekend.
_Warning: These are not for the faint-hearted._
**_The Grudge (PG-13)_**
After moving from America to Tokyo, the Williams Family encounters a curse in their house that was cast after the murder of the previous owners.
**_The Conjuring (R)_**
Paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren fight to defend a family from an ominous presence in their farmhouse.
If you head to the movie theaters this weekend, check out “Annabelle.” The horror film serves as a prequel to “The Conjuring” and follows a couple that has begun to encounter spooky, supernatural events involving an antique doll named Annabelle.
