Scariest Movies of All Time!

With the release and almost "cult" like success of Paranormal Activity, we thought it would be fitting to dig through the archives for a little horror. We came up with WGN Reporter and former Metromix TV personality Marcus Leshock's story on the scariest movies ever... Enjoy.

The Scariest Movie Ever?

UPDATE: Check out Marcus Leshock's Coverage of last nights screening.

We bumped into WGN TV's Marcus Leshock today and he was giddy. When we asked him why he couldn't stop talking about the new horror film "Paranormal Activity". According to the trailer some are saying it's the scariest movie ever made. Right. They didn't see "Major League III: Back to the Minors".

The reason we're blogging about it is you aren't going to be able to see it anywhere unless you request Paramount to put it in your city. There's a select group of cities getting the privilege, including one screening tonight @ the Music Box. Good luck and happy nightmares.
