Already a new school year is upon us once again. Soon the leaves will be falling and the air will have that same dry dingy coolness that brings in fall season. The time when heavy sweaters, and hot cocoa begin to find its way into our comfort zones as we all begin to nestle in to a long and sometimes un nerving pattern. If it were not for the holiday season to keep people pleasant I think we all would embrace our inner demon and ride those waves of madness into total insanity and homicidal frenzy. So to help get all you victims, I mean students prepared for the coming academia fanfare here are 5 movies to teach you how to survive another year with all the crazy and debauched comrades that sit next to you in class, share those communal showers, and serve you at your lunch halls and local pubs, hell maybe even sleeping right next to you or just down the hall. So pop your Adderall, Vyvanse, or Adapect and enjoy these horrifically wonderful tells of terror and collegiate slaughterfest.
The first film I suggest is “Hell Night” 1981.
Four college pledges are forced to spend the night in a deserted old mansion where they get killed off one by one by the monstrous surviving members of a family massacre years earlier for trespassing on their living grounds.
The 80’s were for me was the best of the horror decades so far, the stories were simple and not over thought and the actors were dumb and ready to die. Always had nudity and plenty of blood and guts, and they were un apologetic and not politically correct by any means. They were fun to watch. So after “Hell Night” you have to watch my number 2 film.
“Black Christmas” 1974
A sorority house is terrorized by a stranger who makes frightening phone calls and then murders the sorority sisters during Christmas break.
“Black Christmas” is one of my all time favorites. It is from the 70’s so film quality is not all that great, but it is a great psycho slasher flick and it happens during Christmas break- Horror and Christmas, two of my favorite things! So after you finish with this gem pop another whatever you prefer and pour another jack an’ coke and enjoy my number three pick.
“Tag: The Assassination Game” 1982
College assassination game turns deadly as someone starts playing for real.
could not find the official trailer for this one but here is the opening sequence for the movie…
Once you have reach your state of paranoia with this film and calmed yourself back down so as not to assume that everyone in your study group or walking down the halls or hanging in the promenade is going to come at you with a hunting knife or put a cap in your ass then relax with another mixed drink and enjoy an under appreciated slasher flick brings ghost stories and urban tells closer to the new millennia with my number 4 flick.
“Urban Legend” 1998
A college coed suspects that murders around her campus are connected to Urban Legends.
After you have finished with “Urban Legend” and the Adderall and alcohol have really got your blood going then ball up on your futon and watch my final fright flick.
“Sorority House Massacre” 1986
Beth visits her friends' sorority and finds it hauntingly familiar. The girls' night of fun becomes a night of terror as Beth remains unaware that an escaped psycho stalks the girls one by one!
So have a great and gorific school year and play safe and try to stay alive!
