There is no doubt that Halloween in 2020 will be different than past years. Parents are left to wonder whether or not it's safe to trick or treat. Costume sales are down, and the number of people dressing up this year will be the lowest in a long time. If you are staying in this year, maybe instead of taking the kids through the neighborhood or going to a coworker's party, perhaps you should put the kids to bed, stay on the couch and watch a movie. There are five horror movies on Amazon Prime video that you can watch right now that were set in Idaho, filmed in Idaho, or both.
