The Best Halloween Movies by Country
Halloween may only come around once a year, but our love for a good scary movie is definitely all year round. From monsters and slashers to zombies and demons, we’ve gone on the hunt to find out every country’s most searched for scary flick. We’ve also rated some of the most iconic films for their fear factor and picked out our favourite stylish spooky sirens for you to feast your eyes on.
To gather this data we referenced Halloween and horror seedlists and took the most well known from the past 50 years. We then used Google Keyword Planner and analysed those movies to find out which were most popular in each country according to the search volume data. Terms included "X Movie" and "Watch X Movie".
To collate our fear factor score we used a dedicated horror movie ranking site, reelscary.com and scraped data for each movie based on its gore, disturb and suspense rating. The results were then given a weighted score across each metric and sorted by overall score. Data pulled October 2020.
