Say what you want about all those other so-called "months" throughout the year, October is known for one thing and one thing only -- Columbus Day! Yes! No, actually I'm talking about another holiday; one that doesn't get you a day off work or school, but does allow you to dress up like a freak and beg your neighbors for candy ... right after you've covered their car with toilet paper and eggs. Halloween. Forget about buying crappy presents for people, Halloween is all about celebrating what scares us -- and in honor of the pumpkin-picking, Cinderella-wearing love-fest, Moviefone is counting down the 31 Best Horror Movies of All Time. But they're not just giving you a list and calling it a month; nope, they're releasing one film per day throughout October, while providing clues for the movies they haven't uncovered yet. Think you know your horror? Yeah, so did I, until I scrolled through a list of 30 clues that truly test your scary movie knowledge.

Here's a few examples: Number 28: "This modern classic borrowed its poster art from a Salvador Dali photograph." Or how about Number 25: "This British horror flick's female lead refused to appear naked from the waist down, but she was furious to learn that footage of a (pregnant) body double's backside was used in a nude dancing scene." Ooohh, and then there's Number 22: "Molly Ringwald was originally approached to play this flick's teenaged heroine, but turned down the role because she was 27 at the time." The 31st film has already been uncovered (The Ring), and now it's up to you to sift through the clues and piece together the rest of their list. And stay tuned to Cinematical, as we'll be unveiling our own 31 days worth of Halloween content real soon. Oh October, where would we be without you ...
