Updated September 21, 2018 1.1k votes 114 voters23 items

List RulesVote up the horror movie universes you'd want to exist in; vote down those that you'd never survive in.

Every year, horror lovers anxiously await the arrival of the Halloween season when they finally have an excuse to spend their October nights watching one horror movie after another. But what if you could actually experience those worlds yourself? Would you choose to live in a world where Freddy or Jason are running amok? Or would you be brave enough to fight off hordes of zombies? Perhaps you'd be willing to go toe-to-toe with a killer doll?

We asked our audience which horror movie universe they'd want to exist in if they had the chance. Be sure to vote up the horror film universes you'd be willing to take your chances in and vote down the ones you probably wouldn't survive.
