Haunted Newhouse

The NewsHouse delivers a Halloween treat with this original horror movie set after hours in some of campus' darkest corridors.

Happy Halloween from The NewsHouse

Halloween is upon us, and what better way to spend a lazy afternoon than curled up on the couch with warm apple cider and popcorn to watch some of the greatest Halloween movies and TV shows of all time.

So, we compiled a list of our favorites –- the good, bad and downright corny –- and used them as inspiration to create our own Halloween film.

Let the countdown begin ...

10. Are You Afraid of the Dark episode “The Tale of the Twisted Claw” This show was already scary, add some Halloween drama and you’re in for a treat!

9. Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode “Fear Itself” You think your last experience at a frat party was bad? See how this Scooby gang deals with their worst fears coming true in a haunted fraternity house.

8. Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog: Scary, funny AND corny. Need we say more?

7. Friends episode “The One with the Halloween Party” Rachel gives trick-or-treaters money when they run out of candy.

6. Sorority House Massacre 2 Just another night on sorority row.

5. “It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” Ahh, the memories of our youth.

4. Community episode “Intro to Statistics, Epidemiology” A zombie outbreak and an illicit affair? Sign us up!

3. Freaks and Geeks episode “Tricks and Treats” The age-old story of parents being parents and teenagers wanting to move to Siberia, only with a Halloween twist!

2. The Office Halloween episodes: There are too many classics to just pick one.

1. Boy Meets World episode “And Then There Was Shawn” By far the greatest Halloween episode ever. This was our inspiration for the film. Enjoy!
