I'll watch a scary movie at any time. It doesn't have to be Halloween for me to get a good fright on.

Add in the chance to see a horror flick filmed in Rockford, and I'm doubly in.

What's even better, I haven't even seen any of these fright flicks that have apparently been filmed in Rockford.

Before I go any further, I got my information from IMDb. Rockford, Illinois is listed as a filming location for these movies. That doesn't mean it's the only place where the flick was filmed.

I added movies that might be considered a thriller because they could be considered "scary" too.

I omitted short flicks, really anything less than a feature-length film which I feel is anything shorter than 75 minutes.
