Redbox poll shows favorite scary films, Halloween activities

How do your favorite scary movies and Halloween traditions match up against movie rental company Redbox’ customers? Probably pretty well.

This is Halloween

No doubt you’re familiar with Redbox. The company has been around for a while at this point, and specializes in renting both video games and movies. They seem to be increasing in notoriety too, much like the holiday we’re talking about here.

Not that it was small years ago, but Halloween just keeps getting bigger and bigger. Much more than just going trick or treating, people now have almost as many All Hallows traditions as they do for Christmas.

To find out just how they spend their October 31st, Redbox polled a bunch of their customers last month. They asked them a couple of fun questions like what their favorite Halloween movies are, as well as what they do to make the day special.

A lot of what you’re about to read through seems pretty obvious. As far as favorite films, Hocus Pocus is there, as are movies like Ghostbusters, Halloween, and The Shining. Favorite snacks? Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, Snickers and more.

So it’s not much of a surprising list, but it’s still kind of fun to look through. Check out the Q and A’s below.
