With October coming to an end, Halloween is quickly on its way and so is the spooky spirit that comes along with it. Many students have been searching for ways to spend their Halloween. Students can find that going to their nearest movie theater is a great and convenient alternative for those who aren’t fans of trick or treating or costume parties. Not only can you see the following movies on Halloween, but you can go to your local theater to watch them through fall as well.

“Hell Fest”

“Hell Fest” is an American slasher film directed by Gregory Plotkin and about a masked serial killer who turns a horror-themed amusement park into a personal playground, while terrorizing a group of friends.

Not only can you experience the movie at a traditional movie theater, but you can also get the full realistic experience at Six Flags. Fright Fest at Six Flags is featuring a “Hell Fest” themed haunted house, that you can get into by buying a wristband. The wristband allows for entry into all of the haunted houses as well.

“The “Hell Fest haunted house was the first haunted house that I went to and I think it was the perfect balance for those who don’t want something too scary,” said Aya Beilani, junior.

Hell Fest was released Friday, Sept. 28 but will continue playing at many local theaters throughout October.
