Fall Films


As the fall season approaches, students were asked their opinions on fall movies as well as what makes their top fall movies their favorites.

For sophomore Jaydin Lashley and senior Cienna Meinert, fall movies mean something scary and thrilling, especially during the holidays.

“I like the boogeyman because you know it’s all about Halloween,” Lashley said.

Their favorite movies include “Sinister,” “Nun 2,” “Friday the 13th” and “Hush,” all released after the year 1980.

“I like 2000s. Not back in the day like black and white but also not super recent,” Meinert said. “I don’t like them when they’re more modernized.”

According to Forbes, the top five highest-grossing horror movies of all time are “It,” “The Sixth Sense,” “Jaws,” “Ghostbusters” and “The Exorcist.” 

“I think it’s fun having a thrill. I don’t like anything that’s comedy because it’s just boring to me,” Meinert said. “I like to have something to be nervous about.”   

According to Harvard Business Review, fear not only releases adrenaline and gives people new experiences but also gives them an opportunity to explore their curiosities about scarier things in life. 

Lashley and Meinert both have certain aspects that they think make a good movie. In order to get the adrenaline rush, Lashley has to believe that the actors are also scared. 

“Good acting and also a good scary character [make a good movie]. If it’s someone that’s not scary, you can’t really get scared,”  Lashley said. 

Similar to Lashley, Meinert has to be able to believe the movie to be scared. 

“I don’t like anything paranormal because I don’t believe in ghosts, so it’s just boring,” Meinert said.
