Thursday Movie Picks #60: Halloween Edition: School

Hey! Welcome to Thursday Movie Picks where you get to share your movie picks for each topic presented every Thursday!  Based on the theme presented each week, you can pick up to 3 to 5 movies and explain why you picked those movies! This meme is being hosted by Wandering through the Shelves!

This week's theme is: Halloween Edition: School! 

HAPPY OCTOBER EVERYONE!  That means that we get to talk about some horror themed movies and TV shows and this week's theme is really interesting!  So, this is a school themed horror list and I decided to choose 3 horror movies that deal with school!

Alex Browning is among a group of high school students readying themselves for a trip to Europe.  When he suddenly has a premonition their airplane will crash, he screams to warn the others but instead he is thrown off of the plane.

Ever since the first movie in the "Final Destination" franchise came out, I was immediately interested in this franchise!  Just the fact that this franchise is about a group of teenagers being killed off by an unknown force was something that really interested me!

Carrie White, a shy, friendless teenage girl who is sheltered by her domineering, religious mother, unleashes her telekinetic powers after being humiliated by her classmates at her senior prom.
This is definitely one of the most iconic horror school movies of all time!  The fact that it's about a young girl who has telekinetic powers and she ended up using her powers to murder people when pushed too far is definitely something that remained with me to this very day!

3. The Final

I've got a group of kids who a 10 tormented and bullied and a point where they want revenge against the kids of their high school and knowing today and it's going to change both sides of their life.

So, this movie can best be described as "Carrie," except that the bullied kids don't have telekinetic powers, but they still torture their tormentors in the most brutal ways possible!
