The Newsroom‘s John Gallagher, Jr. has taken to Twitter to share his scariest Halloween films. To share the Halloween spirit, Gallagher, Jr. has been tweeting one scary, creepy or downright terrifying film every day, for the entirety of October. We have the first 15 days here, so which spooky movies made the cut?

It seems the Newsroom star was so worried he had dropped his “Halloween game” that he decided to bombard us with film suggestions all month – not that you’ll hear any complaints here. Some inclusions were surprising, some were more typical. Decide for yourself, we have the first half of the month here. Friendly guy that he is, John Gallagher, Jr. has even given you a 140-characters-or-less summary of why you should check out each film.

Expect Part 2 when Gallagher, Jr. finishes tweeting his suggestions at the end of October, just in time for Halloween!
