Chicago athletes share their favorite Halloween movies
Brian Campbell, Blackhawks defenseman
I’m not a
big scary movie guy, but probably all the Jason [“Friday the 13th”]
movies. Growing up I always watched them, probably didn’t want to watch
them, but I ended up watching them. I remember also watching “The Blair
Witch [Project].” That was pretty scary walking out to your car after
Jordin Tootoo, Blackhawks forward
[“Friday the 13th”], the original. I was a young kid back then. I
thought it was the freakiest thing ever. Probably didn’t sleep for the
rest of the weekend. It just seemed real.
Vinnie Hinostroza, Blackhawks forward
The one with the dolls. They go in like a different dimension or something. Is “Mama” scary? “Mama.”

Ring.” That was one that was a big deal to watch. I think that scarred
me for life. That came out when I was pretty young. I remember watching
it in a hotel room at a youth hockey tournament. Haunted me for a little
bit, I think.
Richard Panik, Blackhawks forward
That was the first scary movie I saw when I was a little guy. It made
me a little bit scared after. When I watch it now, it’s pretty funny.
When I was like 12 or something, it was pretty scary at that time.
Scott Darling, Blackhawks goaltender
I like the Hannibal series, all the Hannibal movies, “Red Dragon,” “Silence of the Lambs.”
Tyler Motte, Blackhawks forward
I’m not a
scary movie guy, I get too scared. “[The] Strangers,” that’s the last
scary movie I watched. At the end they go, “Why did you do this to us?”
And they go, “Because you’re home.” Never watched a scary movie after
that. Can’t watch scary movies anymore.
