  • Paul Conner, associate editor: "'Donnie Darko' would be my pick. I never want to see a life-size rabbit ever again." (screenshot)
  • Neil Munro, White House correspondent: "Eraserhead." (screenshot)
  • Taylor Bigler, entertainment editor: "'Funny Games,' because it is terrifying and you won't be able to sleep in your own house for a week." (screenshot)
  • Eric Owens, education editor: "'Hostel.' I was headed to central Europe working for the State Department when it came out, and I was just profoundly scarred by the whole concept. I made myself go to Bratislava later. I was not tortured or killed." (screenshot)
  • Chuck Ross, reporter: "'Rawhead Rex.' Scary because I was about 7 years old when I watched it." (screenshot)
  • Sarah Hofmann, sports editor and videographer: "Definitely 'The Ring.' I couldn't brush my hair while looking into a mirror for at least a few months. There's something extra scary about little girl demons." (screenshot)
  • Charlotte Errity, intern: "'The Blair Witch Project.'" (screenshot)
  • Vince Coglianese, managing editor: "Any Disney movie where a main character dies." You're welcome for this image. (screenshot)
  • Tim Cavanaugh, executive editor: "'Don't Be Afraid of the Dark.' Included because the monsters are little creatures you can't catch or defeat. And because in the seventies they had the balls to make really grim and downbeat horror movies." (screenshot)
  • Michael Bastasch, DCNF reporter: "'Kazaam' starring Shaquille O'Neil." (screenshot)
  • Katie Howland, intern: "'The Fourth Kind.' I have no words for this movie." (screenshot)

  • Patrick Howley, reporter "'How the Grinch Stole Christmas' was a horrifying allegory for the Socialist community's demonization of landowning capitalists." (screenshot)
