1: Halloween (2007)
Before deciding to go with Rob Zombie's remake of the 1978 horror classic, the studio came very close to going ahead with "Halloween: The Missing Years", which would have been a prequel to the original movie, set within Michael Myers' early days at the Asylum.
2: Hellraiser (1987)
Many viewers have commented about the poor quality of the FX at the end of the movie. Clive Barker has explained that, due to a very limited budget, there was no money left to have the FX done professionally after the primary filming. Instead, Barker and a "Greek guy" animated these scenes by hand over a single weekend. Barker has also commented that he thinks the FX turned out very well considering the amount of alcohol the two consumed that weekend.
3: The Blair Witch Project (1999)
Heather Donahue's mother received sympathy cards from people who believed her daughter was actually dead/missing.
4: Sweeney Todd (2007)
Four Harry Potter stars appear in "Sweeney Todd" - Helena Bonham Carter (Mrs. Lovett / Bellatrix Lestrange), Alan Rickman (Judge Turpin / Severus Snape), Timothy Spall (Beadle / Peter Pettigrew), and Jamie Campbell Bower (Anthony HOPE / Gellert Grindelwald).
5: The Cabin in the Woods (2012)
During the lake scene, the only student not to jump into the lake is Marty, who remains fully clothed on the dock. This was partially due to Fran Kranz noticeably being in as good if not better shape than the other male students. In the commentary for the film, the writers joke that he was "ripped like muscular Jesus" and assert that if Marty were shown being that fit it would ruin the character. This is partly also why Marty wears baggier clothes than the other students.
6 : A Nightmare on Elm Street: The Dream Master (1988)
In A Nightmare On Elm Street Part 4, the name of the diner where Alice works is called the "Crave Inn", a reference to the series creator Wes Craven.
7: Bride Of Chucky ( 1998 )
Bride Of Chucky's promotional poster is a parody of the Scream 2 (1997) promotional poster!
8: Scream Franchise
With four installments, this landmarks the Scream franchise as being one of the only horror franchises to have its main characters return for all its sequels.
9: Beetle Juice (1988)
When Adam and Barbara are in the office, a voice on the PA systems announces the arrival of Flight 409 ("Flight 409 is arriving at Gate 3"). On October 6, 1955 United Airlines Flight 409 crashed into a mountain over Wyoming killing all passengers and crew aboard. It was the worst crash in history to that point. To this day, no one knows why it crashed.
10: Fright Night (2011)
Counting flashback footage, Chris Sarandon is the only actor to appear in all three Fright Night films. In the original Fright Night (1985), he plays the role of Jerry. In the 2011 remake, he has a cameo as the man who hits the Brewsters' car and is subsequently bitten by Jerry.
