Halloween is just around the corner and that means it's time to break out the classic horror movie marathon. And if you live in California, that means it's time to meet up again with your "friend till the end."

Frontier Communications recently did a study on each state's most Googled classic (pre-2000) horror movie villain. For the state of California, that means the homicidal doll Chucky from the Child's Play series is the one you're looking for... or hiding from.

Chucky, who was originally voiced by actor Brad Dourif and most recently by Mark Hamill in the reboot, was the most Googled horror movie villain for several states, including Illinois, Lousiana, Mississippi, Nevada, and New Mexico.

However, the most popular classic horror movie villain was Jack Torrance from the classic horror movie The Shining. He's the most popular in 10 states, including Arizona, Colorado, Michigan, and Missouri.

Other classic horror movie villains making the list are Pennywise at number 2, Frankenstein's monster, Hannibal Lecter, Leatherface, and Alien.
