These are the top three films Open Air Cinema's Facebook followers said they will favor this Halloween.

1. John Carpenter's Halloween (1978)

Curiously, John Carpenter's favorite filmmakers are Howard Hawks and Sergio Leone. And so the Carthage, New York-born director loves Western films the most.

Released four years before Halloween, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre was directed by a filmmaker born in.. -- surprise! -- Austin, Texas. The cast of relatively unknown actors was drawn mainly from central Texas. The concept arose while director Tobe Hooper was working as a documentary cameraman.

3. Hocus Pocus (1993)

This Walt Disney Pictures production was directed by a guy who had been in his mid-twenties the year The Texas Chain Saw Massacre hit the screens. Palo Alto, California-born director Kenny Ortega also directed concert tours for the likes of Cher, Gloria Estefan, Hannah Montana, and Michael Jackson.

Wishing you a spook-tacular Halloween! :)
