The Best College Horror Movies

Posted on: January 17th, 2023

Any film the viewer watches should evoke a response in him and affect some emotion. Therefore, there is no need to explain why romantic comedies are top-rated. Action films help us disconnect from the reality around us. Detectives help us to feel ourselves in place of Sherlock Holmes and check how quickly we can solve the mystery of the murder. But horror films awaken adrenaline in us and help us experience intense emotions. The place where the events of the film unfold is also important; for example, it is among students that college horror films are very popular. It is difficult to explain this because, very often, at the end of the academic year, each student is already faced with his own horror story when teachers expect a considerable number of completed assignments and written essays from you. Of course, given the development of writing services, it will be much easier to deal with this problem, you can simply use, and after a certain time, you will receive a quality article on any topic. Perhaps that’s why students keep tickling their nerves by going to the movies to watch College Horror Movies. Below you will find a list of the best films to watch if you are missing the thrill of life.

1 Black Christmas (1974)
The film is considered by film scholars to be one of the first examples of horror in the slasher genre. The plot of this film is based on one of the most popular American urban legends about a nanny and a stranger on the second floor. The film is about students who are confronted by a serial killer who is hiding in a women’s dormitory.

2 Happy Death Day (2017)
The movie Happy Death day was released in 2017 and is a 2017 horror comedy film. The plot of the film revolves around a college student who is caught in a time loop, and every day ends the same way, the same masked man kills her. It is this plot that gives us a reference to the classic film Groundhog Day.

3. A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: The Dream Warriors (1987)
The third instalment of the Freddy Krueger films received very positive reviews from both critics and audiences and is considered the second-best film in the series after the original 1984 film. The film was released in February 1987 and grossed over $44 million in the US.

4. I Still Know What You Did Last Summer (1998)

Julie, a college student, and her friend Carla win a trip to the Bahamas, where the main characters and their friends are targeted by a mad maniac.

The film successfully combines elements of horror and comedy, making fun of all genre clichés.

The film tells about a series of murders that takes place in a college town, and the main character is trying to figure out who the maniac is and not become his next victim.
