A study in the U.K. found that watching a scary movie for 90 minutes burns about 150 calories which is the same amount as a 30-minute walk.

Here is the top ten scary movies and the amount of calories you will burn while watching them. 

1.  "The Shining", 184 calories.  (That's just 90 minutes of it, and it's a 2 hour and 26 minute movie.  So if you watch the whole thing, it works out to 299 calories.)


2.  "Jaws", 161 calories.


3.  "The Exorcist", 158 calories.


4.  "Alien", 152 calories.


5.  "Saw", 133 calories.


6.  "A Nightmare on Elm Street", 118 calories.


7.  "Paranormal Activity", 111 calories.


8.  "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre", 107 calories.


9.  "The Blair Witch Project", 105 calories.


10.  "Rec", 101 calories
