Here's a List of The 50 States with Their Favorite Horror Movie

Movie Horror by Joey Paur

It’s always fun to watch and talk about horror movies during the Halloween season. Every year during the month of October, I try to watch at least one horror movie a day.

I’m a big fan of the horror genre, but I’ve never really thought about what the most popular horror film is for each state in the U.S. But, thanks to Streaming Observer, we now have a list for you that gives us exactly that information.

They were able to put this list together by using data compiled from Rotten Tomatoes and various other sources. Here’s how they compiled that data:

Using data from Rotten Tomatoes, proprietary Amazon MTurk surveying, and other public sources, we compiled a list of the most popular horror movies of all time. Then, we partnered with Mindnet Analytics and used Google Trends data to determine which horror movie each state was most obsessed with relative to other states.

This actually turned out to be a fun and interesting list. Some of the films are predicable like The Shining for Colorado and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre for Texas, and there are some movies that pop up as the favorites in multiple states likes like The Silence of the LambsShaun of the Dead, and The Exorcist.
