Horror always has a huge presence at New York Comic Con (NYCC) and we sorted through it all to bring you some top picks from the show floor.
Whether you’re into wholesome movies like Hocus Pocus and the Charlie Brown specials, campy classics like Beetlejuice and The Munsters, or the more hardcore horror like Chucky and The Conjuring, check out our list of these 13 must-haves we saw at NYCC.
