What’s your favorite scary movie? While some students on campus prefer scary movies, others would rather watch spooky movies during the Halloween season.

What’s your favorite scary movie?

Whether your answer is horror film is Halloween like Scream character Casey Becker, or you’re not a horror fan like Scream character Sidney Prescott, almost everyone has a favorite movie to watch during the Halloween season.

There are two types of Halloween movie genres: spooky and scary. Spooky movies are the ones you grow up watching, the ones that you put on in the background while you’re passing out Halloween candy. Scary movies are the ones that make you jump, the ones that have you on the edge of your seat the whole time watching.

For some students on campus, spooky movies are the ones to watch every Halloween.

“My favorite Halloween movie is Girl vs. Monster,” junior Carlie Schroeder said. “I have been watching it for years now and I watch it every year during the fall season.”

But scary movies are senior Grace Payne’s favorite, with the 1978 Halloween being her favorite.

“My favorite Halloween movie is Halloween and I don’t really know why it’s my favorite,” Payne said. “I have just been watching it since I was little and loved it then. I am more of scary movie fan”

Students like senior Claire Hebert, opt out of watching movies and watch Halloween TV show episodes instead.

“My favorite Halloween movie is actually the Halloween episodes of the Disney shows Jessie and Good Luck Charlie,” senior Claire Hebert said. “I love any Disney show that has Halloween episodes.”

Traditions from childhood can play a big role in someone’s favorite Halloween movie.

Halloweentown is my favorite Halloween movie because I’ve been watching it since I was little and it feels like tradition,” senior Kayla Winter said. “I prefer cute Halloween movies over scary ones because I feel like you can watch most scary movies all year round.”

Whether spooky movies or scary movies, head volleyball coach Eighmy Dobbins, whose favorite holiday is Halloween, loves them all.“I prefer scary movies, but love spooky Halloween movies too,” she said. “Can’t go wrong with either! My favorite Halloween movie is definitely the original Halloween from 1978. I love it because it combines my favorite holiday with some scary aspects as well. It’s a classic!”
