Website KillTheCableBill.com teamed up with Rotten Tomatoes and others to settle the horror movie score.
Just about everyone seems to be super confident about which scary movie is the absolute scariest, but then how can they all know the answer?
Truth is, there isn’t an answer. Although, there are plenty of opinions out there by some very opinionated people. Also, what exactly is a scary movie? Personally, some may think that Disney’s Pinocchio is a scary movie because it sends little kids to a place called Pleasure Island — some of human trafficking’s finest moments.
Let’s get to the bottom of this, though. It may be hard but we can at least figure out which scary movies are most popular in each U.S. state.
The site Kill The Cable Bill partnered with Mindnet Analytics and used a combination of information from Rotten Tomatoes and Google Trends to analyze how interest in horror movies varied by people in each state and the District of Columbia (DC).
