Now that spooky season has officially kicked off as of October 1st, that means it's time for horror movies!

Not that I need a reason...I absolutely love a good slasher flick! They have just enough jump scares and mystery to keep my attention.

However, they can be a little predictable at times...that feeling that something (or someone) is behind you and when you go to look, they aren't there; or the fact that if you're a teenager and you do anything remotely "bad", you've pretty much signed your own death certificate. And there are countless other horror movies "rules" as well; just ask Jamie Kennedy's character, Jamie, from Scream. There's a whole scene where Jamie, the movie's film buff character, explains what you can and cannot do in a horror movie...and it's a lot. Check it out below.

 

But despite these stereotypes, we all find ourselves watching these scary movies, again and again, yelling at the screen to the character who is running the wrong way and is about to get killed.

That got me thinking...could I survive a horror movie? Or would I just be another stereotypical character who gets killed about halfway through? Better yet, could LANSING survive a horror movie? And if so, what character would Lansing be?

The Story Behind Lansing's Groesbeck Giant Skeletons

Tucked inside Groesbeck, Lansing's upper eastside neighborhood, is a house that is home to a pair of larger-than-life front yard decorations: a pair of 12 foot skeletons. The owners of the skeletons not only use them for Halloween, but use them for other awesome holiday displays as well. See how creative they get when it comes time to decorate for Easter!
