5 Reasons to Attend Halloween Movie Night

By Sophie Kane 

You’re going to want to come to the STUCO movie night on October 26th. Here’s why.

 

  1. Michael Myers

Sure, we get our yearly influx of scary movie box office hits and busts, but only a handful of knife-wielding villains rise to the level of pop culture icons: you’ve got Norman Bates, Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, Pennywise the Clown, Jack Torrance, and then there’s Michael Myers. He traumatized a generation and now he’s making a resurgence in a remake of the classic movie this fall. Don’t worry though, we’ll be screening the original movie in all its John Carpenter glory.

     2. It just might be the best scary movie of all time

“Halloween” was a horror movie game changer and its inspired countless films since. It’s low on graphic violence, but its suspenseful, psychological scares makes it all the more terrifying. It’s still hailed as the best horror movie of all time.

    3. The soundtrack

It’s one thing to make an iconic movie, and another to also have an iconic soundtrack. Just like those semitones in “Jaws” and the twinkling notes of the Exorcist theme, the music is enough to keep you awake at night.

    4. Come for the food

Watching “Halloween” in a theater in the dark, with your friends, listening to that music is pretty much the ultimate Halloween experience.

   5. Admission is free!

There’s no charge at the door so all you need is a few reais for pizza and popcorn snacking.

This event is not to be missed so don’t forget to pick up a permission form in the iCommons to submit by October 23rd to the Upper School Office in order to attend.

See you there!
