Halloween movies not to miss this season1 min read

Carl Nilvall, Staff Writer

Halloween is an exceptional day to watch horror movies, and this year has many great horror flicks coming out.

Carrie, directed by Kimberly Pierce, has been long anticipated. The release was postponed to Oct. 18, but is currently out and ready to watch.

The movie has the same plot as the 1976 version, following a teenage girl with supernatural powers played by Chloë Grace Moretz. Her mother, played by Julianne Moore, is extremely religious and abusive to Carrie.

After being tricked and treated as an outcast at her senior prom by her fellow classmates, Carrie’s world begins to explode.

The second blockbuster currently out is The Conjuring, directed by James Wan. Based on the true story of famous supernatural investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, portrayed by Oscar nominee Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson, as they are called in to help a family being terrorized by dark forces. The family’s countryside house drags the Warrens into a powerful confrontion with demonic forces, becoming the worst case they ever encounter. But we shouldn’t forget many of the classic horror movies people still watch enjoy, as well.

The Shining (1980), directed by Stanley Kubrick and based on a book by Stephen King, follows the former alcoholic father Jack Torrance, played by Jack Nicholson, as he and his family travel to the elegant but desolate Overlook Hotel to work as a caretaker during off-season.

Horrifying events and madness are just few of the things that haunt the hotel’s past.

Gather your friends and see these popular horror flicks this Halloween.
