10 Horror Films to Watch in April
April is a busy month: April Fool’s Day, Easter, Passover, Spring Break, Spring itself. What better way to celebrate then with ten themed horror films?
1. April Fool’s Day (1986)
Start off your month with this 80’s slasher classic about a bunch of college kids on a remote island who get picked off one by one. The ending is especially awesome.
2. Night of the Lepus (1972)
April has Easter and Easter is all about bunnies so if you’re into campy silly B-movies check out this one about giant mutant rabbits that attack the southwestern US.
3. Easter Bunny Kill! Kill! (2006)
This is a lesser-known horror film about a homicidal man dressed as a giant bunny who goes after a young boy’s tormentors. Not an award winner but definitely Easter Bunny-themed.
4. Atrocious (2010)
Atrocious is a film about siblings who, over Easter week, explore their vacation home and discover something really scary.
5. The Reaping (2007)
Easter is a big deal in April but let’s not forget Passover! Celebrate the biblical plagues by watching this film about a small town suffering from them and investigated by Hilary Swank.
6. Jeepers Creepers (2001)
Spring break is here for many of us and this is one of those horror movies that takes place over it. In this one a brother and sister drive home for break and encounter a terrifying organ-eating creature.
7. Piranha 3D (2010)
Another fun time during Spring Break is Piranha 3D but this time it’s killer piranhas in Lake Victoria that wipes out a bunch of college kids.
8. Rites of Spring (2011)
April is all about the real start of the showers and flowers that come with Spring and in this film, each Spring girls go missing from a town hiding lots of secrets.
9. The Ruins (2008)
With Spring comes a rebirth in nature, including lots of beautiful green plants. In The Ruins those plants turn out to be the villain and a wonderfully crafted story makes you scared of something that was once harmless.
10. The Birds (1963)
Another film about nature gone bad, The Birds is one of Hitchcock’s classic horror films and no matter how old it gets, it’s always scary and always fun to watch.
