We’re getting closer to Halloween, so we thought it’d be fun to get some horror movie recommendations from a few of our favorite sci-fi stars.

We caught up with a bevy of sci-fi actors at New York Comic Con to chat about horror, with a list that included Dane Dehaan (Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets), Danay Garcia (Fear the Walking Dead), Theo Rossi (Luke Cage), Felicia Day (The Guild), Bruce Campbell (Ash vs. Evil Dead), Spencer Grammar (Rick and Morty), Dominique Tipper (The Expanse), Sarah Chalke (Rick and Morty), Paul Dini (Batman: The Animated Series), Thomas Jane (The Expanse) and more.

So what led the straw poll? There seemed to be a lot of love for The Shining, Jaws, The Exorcist, Alien and The Thing. But along with the obvious offenders, there are also a few excellent outside-the-box horror recommendations in the mix. Come for the watch list, but stay for Thomas Jane’s hilarious story about watching Alien. Chestbursters and soda, an odd mix.

Check out the video below and let us know what you think:
