CELEBRATE THESE CULT TEEN HORROR FILMS WITH FRIEND REQUEST18:02:00
Good Afternoon Lovelies,
I am back again now to share with you some scary stuff. With Friend Request due out very soon lovelies, I was kindly sent this great feature looking at some of the best teen horror films of all time. And with Halloween coming up I thought it was the perfect thing to start the fall feelings.
I will admit that I did not write the feature lovelies because I think the writer deserves the credit, however I wanted to post it because it has made me want to sit and watch a ton of horror films now. Who is with me?
You will be after this feature aha…
Every few years, a film comes along that speaks to teens and becomes a cult hit. From the iconic Ghostface calling his victims in Scream to the blood-soaked prom prank in Carrie, these moments are relatable and overdramatic – perfect for the younger generation. Friend Request is the latest in this dark and twisted trend, where social media is used to terrorise a group of students.
Laura has 800 friends on social media, but when she accepts a friend request from a quiet girl in her class she quickly realises how dangerous the click of a mouse can be. Soon a dark spirit takes control of Laura’s account and one by one, her friends are killed in the most brutal ways. Ahead of the release of Friend Request on Blu-rayTM and DVD September 19, we wanted to take a look at some of the best teen cult horrors of all time.
Carrie (1976): Carrie received two Academy Award nominations, and launched the careers of various young actors including John Travolta. The film follows the shy teenager Carrie, who has an overbearing mother and is bullied by many students at her school. When she becomes the victim of a cruel prank to crown her Prom Queen and dump a bucket of pig’s blood over her on stage, Carrie unleashes her telekinetic fury upon innocent and guilty students alike, destroying her high school gymnasium and trapping the students inside to feel her wrath.
Halloween (1978): Arguably one of the most successful horror franchises of all time, the Halloween saga began with a moment which shocked cinemagoers everywhere. When six year-old Michael Myers dressed in a clown costume brutally murders his sister by stabbing her with a kitchen knife, the child is committed to a psychiatric hospital until he escapes at the age of 21. The psychotic murderer returns to his home town and begins stalking high school student Laurie Strode, killing anyone who gets in his way.
Friend Request Is Out On Blu-Ray and DVD September 19th Lovelies!
