Chicago Horror Film Guide
As much as we love to promote our local businesses, we know that those dark and stormy nights may just call for a good movie night at home. Never fear! We've got some recommendations for horror films set and filmed right here in Chicago for you to refer to! So open up that GrubHub app and order dinner from a WPB restaurant, kick up your feet, and put on a local chiller flick for your own personal fright night... And while we all know that the classic Halloween movies are set in the fictional Chicago suburb of Haddonfield, these movies will show you some familiar sights and haunts that you may pass on a daily basis.
