Ready to get your scare on with the most frightening films this October? Then you should check out the movies on the American Movie Classics (AMC) Channel.
Vinny Tucciarone (’17) said that his “favorite scary movie is Nightmare on Elm Street, because the character Freddy is crazy.” Tyler Edwards (’16) said, “My favorite scary movie is Scary Movie V. Even though it’s not really a scary movie, it is still a good movie.” Tucciarone said, “I like horror movies because some of them have dumb plots. Like Friday The 13th, ‘Hey let’s saty in a cabin in the middle of the woods with no security system, I mean what could go wrong?'”
A lot of the more recent scary movies have fallen short on their plots and can’t really compare to the nice classics that we get to see this fall. This is the perfect chance to get your fill of the awesome classics that you don’t really get to see all that often.
Tucciarone thinks that the movie channels “are probably going to [start by] showing the newer movies, because they aren’t as good as the classics, and then throughout, build up to the awesome classic.” Edwards said, “I think that they are going to be showing Dark Skies, because they showed that movie a lot last year in 2014.”
One of the main reasons why people like to watch scary movies is because they can get a thrill out of them, and there aren’t many thrills in your everyday life. With all these great movies to watch, the whole aspect of Halloween has its fun times!
