8 10 12 Do any of you boys and girls remember the movie Quarantine? Well, this 2007 Spanish horror flick is the original version of that movie and is much creepier despite the fact that the two are almost shot-for-shot the same. The plot is somewhat original, as we follow a camera crew that is posted at a fire station to investigate strange nightly events. However, the night turns out to be a horrifyingly crazy experience filled with Vatican agents and demonically possessed men and women. Fun fact: Filmed with shaky camerawork to simulate the real-life nature of the film, the movie has an even more terrifying feel.

8 10 12 This remake of the 1973 George Romero film of the same name stands right alongside the original as a great piece of horror cinema. Nothing spectacular, just a good old-fashioned “disease that strikes a small town, turning everyone into murderous psychos” movie that has an abundance of clichéd frightening moments which may or may not make you jump out of your seat. Out of thousands of residents living in Ogden Marsh, Iowa, only a handful of survivors escape the deadly plague that is quickly taking over what the movie dubs “the friendliest place on Earth.” After the movie begins, it’s clear that Ogden Marsh is anything but friendly.
The Silence of the Lambs
Saturday, Oct. 30
7:30 10 12:30 The Silence of the Lambs is a classic horror/thriller. The winner of five Academy Awards, including Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Picture, this movie is sure to live up to any amount of hype. In the film, a fresh FBI detective seeks out a convicted cannibal, Hannibal Lecter, for aid in rescuing the daughter of the state governor from a sick and twisted serial killer. With plenty of shockingly terrifying moments as well as all the drama of a crime movie, The Silence of the Lambs is an extraordinarily well-made movie that you should see at some point in your life. Fun fact: George Romero makes a cameo appearance; try to spot him!
Halloween! (No Film)
Sunday, Oct. 31
Boo! Boo! It’s Halloween, so put on your costume and scare someone witless. This could be your year to have the absolute best idea ever. Or not. Either way, please, for the sake of giving our school a fighting chance at a cool reputation, do not spend this Halloween studying. Spend it with anyone you like; just make sure you are having a grand old time doing whatever it is you do for fun. Unfortunately, that cannot be seeing a dollar movie.
