Getting your heart rate up burns calories...and exercise isn't the only thing that does it--scary movies do it too! A study in the U.K. found that watching a scary movie for 90 minutes burns about 150 calories . . . the same as a 30-minute walk. Movies with "jump scares" work best, FYI.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to call my trainer and tell her I'm not showing up to the gym today...I'll be watching scary movies instead!
Look for some scary movie inspiration? Here's a list of the top 10 horror movies of all time, according to IGN:
10) Night of the Living Dead
9) Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)
8) Rosemary's Baby
7) Bride of Frankenstein
6) The Shining
5) Silence of the Lambs
1) The Exorcist
Happy Halloween, y'all!
