If you are a lover of horror and scares, this holiday season is exactly for you. Halloween is just a couple weeks away, and it’s time to start getting into the spirit of screams and spooky-ness.
Before Halloween creeps upon us, it’s imperative we get into the mood of the scary season. Scary movies are an excellent way to jump start those goosebumps. Try to watch movies that have spooky scenes and very intensifying creatures such as “It” and “The Woman in Black.” Some people are not huge fans of the horror genre, but are huge fans of celebrating Halloween.
Consider hosting a horrifying movie marathon. Typically, those who are scared of horror films will be easily calmed when around those who aren’t. Maybe start with watching “The Conjuring.” That’ll do the trick.
According to the Huffington Post, visiting a haunted attraction is the perfect way to celebrate Halloween.
Try going to Universal Orlando through Nov.1 to experience Halloween Horror Nights or check out a local haunted house in your area. Flat rate event tickets for Halloween Horror Nights may cost you nearly $60 depending on the night you select, though.
Here at VSU, the spirit will intensify in just a couple weeks.
Campus Recreation will host the Haunted Trail from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Oct. 24 through the 28 at the Center for Outdoor Recreational Experiences Challenge Course. The experience will last about 30 to 35 minutes. Due to the intense nature of this experience, only those 13 years of age and older are allowed to participate. General admission is $5 per person.
Students are excited for this event already.
“I’m so excited to attend the Haunted trail,” Paige Davis, a freshman nursing major, said.
Decorations and costumes are also extremely big when it comes to being creepy. Some Halloween ideas for decorations could be glam glittered pumpkins, a haunted cookie jar, ghostly draperies and anything scary your mind can think of.
One student is ready to show off for the Halloween season.
“I go all out when it comes to putting together a costume,” Kennedi Etheridge, a freshman nursing major, said.
Whatever you do on Halloween whether it’s scary or not, just remember to have fun and be safe.
