Halloween is once again here, which means it's the one time of the year where even non-horror fans start looking for scary movies to watch. While the various cable channels provide an abundance of fright flicks during the last week of the month (culminating in a veritable smorgasbord on the evening of Oct. 31), we decided to highlight 10 scary movies guaranteed to make the night spook-tastic.

So, grab the popcorn and your bag of Halloween booty, turn off the lights and settle in for 10 creepy classics that will put you in the ghoultide mood.
