With Halloween quickly approaching, people are looking for spine-chilling movies to watch. Each state has its favorite thriller film and its favorite horror movie villains.

Treetopia compiled a list of the most popular horror movie villains in each state.

The most popular horror film set in California, according to Treetopia, is The Lost Boys. The 1987 horror vampire film follows a local gang of bikers that leads two brothers to discover an area in Santa Clara that is a haven for vampires.

According to the list, California's favorite types of villains are vampires. However, it turns out most Americans are intrigued and terrified by humans (psychopaths).

The website states, "Regionally, human baddies dominate the West, South, and Northeast regions of America. Meanwhile, in the Northwest, aliens and ghosts tie for the most popular movie villain. That said, fans say human psychopaths are the most terrifying of all. They took first place in a whopping 18 states."

The next most popular villain was ghosts. Ghosts were the favorite of seven states. Aliens, demons, monsters, vampires, and zombies were the favorites of five states each. The least popular villain was sharks.
