Whether you are into thrillers and horror movies or prefer comedy and action, it is the time of the year where you must watch a scary movie or two. No matter your opinion, there is at least one horror movie you can watch that won’t leave you scarred forever.

If you are afraid of the ghost and demon aspect of horror movies, Draeden Spang ’19 has you covered. I asked Spang ’19 if he likes horror movies he responded, “No, I don’t like horror movies; most of them are scary AF.” He doesn’t hate all horror movies though. He said, “I don’t mind watching the Saw series because I like the gore-y stuff; I just hate movies that are demonic.”

The movie “It” seems to be the most popular horror movie of the season, but there are mixed feelings towards this hit film. Brooklyn Butler ’18 said he enjoys watching horror movies and “It” was intriguing and suspenseful. He said, “I liked ‘It’ because there were a lot of jump scares that kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time.” On the other hand, Mateo Ramirez ’19 who doesn’t like horror movies, didn’t mind watching “It.” He felt that the characters and the comedic aspect of the Loser Club made the movie much more bearable and less spooky.

I, myself, love horror movies. The best horror movie I’ve ever seen and highly recommend is the 1984 “Nightmare on Elm Street.”  This movie was truly horrifying and left me in fear for weeks. After watching this movie, I was nervous about falling asleep that night. This movie was extremely suspenseful, and although the ending was a bit cheesy, Wes Craven made up for this with the gore and Kruger’s terrifying persona.

If you are into getting a good scare, you might enjoy “Lights Out”, a supernatural horror film. According to Jenny Hughes ’18, “‘Lights Out’ is actually scary. It’s a movie that really draws you in.” and makes you fearful for what’s going to happen next. Hughes believes the ending is much better than other scary movies. “‘In Lights Out,’ [SPOILER ALERT] the bad guy dies at the end, so when you are done watching it, you won’t get nightmares from it.”
