Commenting on the survey, Mark Barlow, UK Managing Director of Showcase Cinemas, said: “Horror films continue to be hugely popular with our guests throughout the year, not just on Halloween, offering so many iconic characters and moments.

Showcase Cinemas brought a selection of classic horror films to the big screen as part of their Spooky Season lineup, and he added: ‘Our survey also revealed that horror films are the UK’s favorite thing to watch. About Halloween, that’s why we show some classic Halloween movies before the day itself, so our guests can enjoy spooky scenes on the big screen.
