The first Friday the 13th of 2022 is upon us, making it the perfect time to cuddle up in bed (or hide under the sheets) and watch a horror movie. Connecticut's rich "supernatural" and "haunted" history has made it the inspiration behind many classic horror films including the aptly named "Friday the 13th" franchise and "Conjuring" universe of films that feature the "demonic" Annabelle doll.\u00a0 Here are 10 scary movies with Connecticut connections to celebrate the unofficial horrifying holiday:\u00a0\u00a0 \u00a0 This horror story is based around Jason Voorhees, a mass murderer who lives in a lake and prays on teens.\u00a0\u00a0 Director and producer Sean S. Cunningham and screenplay writer Victor Miller were living next to each other near Stratford when they came up with the script for "Friday the 13th," according to the book, "Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday The 13th." Though the two took inspiration from the surrounding area where they grew up in Connecticut, filming for the movie took place in New Jersey, IMBD states. \u00a0 \u00a0 \u00a0 This sequel takes place five years after the original and features the return of Jason Voorhees, its IMBD description states.\u00a0 The film's primary location and home of Voorhees, Crystal Lake, is said to be in Cunningham County, New Jersey. However, the producers of the second film chose Camp Kenmont in Kent as the main filming location, according to IMBD's description. Aside from Camp Kenmont, the film features several more Connecticut setpieces, including the exterior of Alice's house and her neighborhood (filmed in Waterbury,) the interior of Alice's house (filmed in Torrington) and downtown New Preston (filmed in New Preston,) according to the Friday the 13th franchise website.\u00a0 The scenes filmed in New Preston featured the Lake Waramaug Casino, which burned down during the 1980s, according to the New York Times. This film features the origin story of Annabelle, the "demonic doll" who acts as the main antagonist of the "Conjuring" universe of films.\u00a0 The Annabelle doll, which the story is based around, was originally purchased in 1970 as a gift for someone's daughter, according to the New England Society of Psychic Research's website. After a number of supposed strange occurrences, Connecticut supernatural investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren examined the doll and deemed it to be possessed by a "demonic spirit."\u00a0 She will be on display for the general public at the Warren's Seekers of the Supernatural Paracon at Mohegan Sun on Oct. 29 \u00a0 This horror movie is based on the satanic panic of the 1980s. According to IMDB, it was filmed completely in Connecticut. It features locations such as Central Connecticut State University (which served the role of the main character's school,) as well as Kent pizza (which was featured as a pizzeria in the film) and The Ulman House in Lakeville.\u00a0 \u00a0 This story is based on the "haunted" Yankee Pedlar Inn in Torrington and features two employees trying to uncover it's past, according to its IMBD description.\u00a0 The team behind Ti West's "The Innkeepers" were able to shoot most of the footage on location at the inn, according to the Hartford Courant.\u00a0 This 80s movie is themed around the spirits of a dead couple who are bothered by an obnoxious family who moved into their house, according to its description on IMBD. Though the film takes place in the fictional town of Winter River, Conn., the filming of this Halloween classic took place in East Corinth, VT. and Culver Studios in California, according to IMBD.\u00a0 The horror movie takes place in Connecticut in the town of Southington. The tale is based on a supposedly true story of the Snedeker family who rented an old house in 1986 and found out that their home had once been a funeral parlor. The family claimed their son began seeing ghosts. The movie was filmed in Canada, according to IMDB. Connecticut's most famous paranormal residents, Ed and Lorraine Warren are at the center of this franchise-launching film. The pair works to help a family terrorized by a dark presence in their farmhouse, the movie's IMBD description states. However, filming took place mostly in North Carolina, according to IMBD. From the pages of Stephen King's classic novel, this 1996 horror hit centers around a Connecticut attorney who is cursed by a gypsy to rapidly and uncontrollably lose weight. Despite having a carton of Stew Leonard's milk making a brief cameo, IMDB reports the filming of the movie took place in Maine. The plot of this film revolves around two teenage girls who are kidnapped by a gang of psychopathic convicts, IMBD states. The movie was mostly shot around Westport. However, some scenes were also filmed in Weston near the home of producer Sean Cunningham, according to IMDB.
