Halloween is Monday, October 31st, and many of us may dress up and go to a party or head out Trick or Treating — but we may also draw the curtains, turn off the lights, and put on a scary movie!

The folks at Decluttr.com looked into which movie each state is scared of the most.

Here in Wisconsin, we’re most afraid of the movie, Identity.

The 2003 film stars John Cusack, Ray Liotta and Amanda Peet. Here’s a synopsis: Stranded at a desolate Nevada motel during a nasty rain-storm, ten strangers become acquainted with each other when they realize that they’re being killed off one by one.
