Every scary movie playing in Pittsburgh through Halloween night

There's a neat article in the New York Times this week that hailed 2017 as "the biggest year in horror history." This wasn't hyperbole or opinion. The piece cited numbers from Box Office Mojo, "the most comprehensive box office database on the Internet," and found that horror films have pulled in a record $733 million in 2017. And that's with two months and several potential heavy hitters to go (Happy Death Day and Jigsaw). It and Get Out scored the biggest returns, accounting for roughly $475 million of the year's total.

That's an impressive feat, though the growth wasn't exactly overnight. The Witch, Creep, It Follows, Cabin in the Woods, It Comes at Night and The Babadook are all excellent entries from the 2010s (just to name a few). October, and this week specifically, is a great time to relive those greats and dig back into the history of the genre. Personally, I've been watching a horror movie more or less every day since Oct. 1, including my first-ever viewing of Carrie (excellent, as expected) and The Breed (a phenomenally awful vampire flick from 2001 featuring Bokeem Woodbine, Adrian Paul and the brilliant William Hootkins). But for out-of-the-house viewing, there are plenty of options as well.

There are only six days left in the Halloween season, so here's a comprehensive list of every classic or at least not first-run scary movie playing in Pittsburgh through Tuesday night. If you know of any glaring omissions here, shoot an email to alexgordon@pghcitypaper.com.
