RICHMOND, Va. — Cue the creepy synthesizer and eerie music notes because Halloween is fast approaching. It is the season for creepy slasher films and for scaring yourself to the point of dropping the popcorn.
But which movie scares Virginians the most? The company Decluttr, an online source for selling used entertainment and digital tech, used their data to find out which horror movie the residents of each state have been selling off the most and compiled a list. They interpret the data to mean getting rid of the movie means the person is “just too scared to cling onto it.”
But it could also mean its the movie that no longer scared the owners, so they sold it at discount, just saying.
According to their non-scientific data compilation, residents of the Commonwealth are most scared by the 1991 thriller “Silence of the Lambs,” directed by Jonathan Demme. Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins and Scott Glenn starred in the Academy-Award winning production.
The introduction of Dr. Hannibal Lecter, a cannibalistic serial killer, was certainly creepy.
What do you say? Do you still hear the screaming of the lambs?
