We are gearing up for another Friday the 13th this week and if you want to set the correct "creepy" mood, there are some movies you need to check out.

Do you know what makes a good horror movie even scarier? Recognizing some of the places in the background. Watching the killer or evil clown walking down the same street you did as a kid will send even greater chills down your back.

Buffalo and all of Western New York are becoming a hotbed for filmmakers and we are starting to see more and more of the landscape of Western New York features on the silver screen.

From big-budgeted movies like "The Quiet Place" and "The First Purge" to low-budget movies like "The Burning", Western New York has been turned into a place that brings out the worst in people and evil into the world at least in the movies

So if you are looking for a good scare on Friday the 13th, check out these movies that were filmed right here in Western New York.

The good news is that all these movies are fictional and not based on true stories.

So if you do head out afterward on a Friday the 13th, just know Aliens won't' come to kill you if you make a sound, or your neighbors won't throw on a mask to commit legal crimes on just one day a year.

With that in mind, here are 5 movies to watch this Friday the 13th since they were all filmed here in Western New York.
