The Senior Haunted House was undoubtedly one of the highlights of EAB’s Halloween party on Saturday. Modeled after a haunted psychiatric hospital, this haunted house had a line a mile long – and for good reason. Much of the high school hallways and classes were converted into the building of a spooky mental institution: hallways transformed into dark, cobwebbed passages for visitors, frightening classroom scenes, a doctor’s room for the truly “bad” patients, and another one just for the haunted dolls. The awesome decor made you feel as if you were truly in a haunted mental institution.
Credit should also be given to the frighteningly good actors (or “patients”) of the Haunted House who made the mental ward seem so real. Costumes were done up to the max with deathly-looking makeup, fake blood and fake eye contacts all contributing to scaring the living daylights out of the visitors. The acting was also amazing; the seniors became completely immersed in their roles and definitely succeeded in the task of scaring the visitors with their screams, rants, and psychotic tantrums.
All in all, this year’s Haunted House was a huge success and we can’t wait for next year’s!

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