Lambert students and teachers channel the Halloween spirit through loved sinister and eerie Halloween films. 

Students enjoy a mixture of childrens spooky movies and modern-day horror films. Favored children’s movies include The Nightmare Before Christmas (picked by Cailin Johnson) and Corpse Bride by Sasha Looby. Both these animated thrillers, directed by the infamous Tim Burton, are laced with love stories and happy endings. Jack Skellington, the pumpkin king of Halloweentown in The Nightmare Before Christmas journeys to Christmastown on an ordinary day. He was stunned by its beauty but failed to recreate his newfound Christmas spirit in Halloweentown due to his downward spiral into obsession and ignorance. Cailin identifies this Disney movie as a nostalgic adventure back to her childhood during the Halloween season. Lana Banta and Kaitlyn Olesons’ cherished modern era horror films chosen were The Boy and The Conjuring. The former movie was directed by William Brent Bell. It focuses on a nanny who looked after an eight-year-old “boy” who was a life-sized doll. An unexpected twist at the end, after a series of ominous and catastrophic events, made Lane fearful of how intriguing the movie was. The teachers more commonly preferred moves that leave them in a paralyzed. Mrs. Parker, an AP Psychology teacher, stated her ideal thriller was Scream. Scream, a classic 1996 mystery horror film filled with witty humor, was directed by Wes Craven. It details a masked serial his murdering rampage on suburban high-school students and shocks the viewer when the true killer and victims were revealed. In comparison, Mr. Candela mentioned the book-based film IT by the notable Stephan King and director Andres Mushcietti. IT follows seven stereotypical, outcast kids who face their worst nightmares thanks to a clown named Pennywise. Mrs. Nicoletti, a Special Education teacher, decided The Shining was undisputedly her favorite thriller. The psychological horror film concerns Jack Torrance, a caretaker of a remote hotel, falls into delirium when he uncovers the hotel’s secrets. His family subsequently becomes victim to his torment and other supernatural forces entrapped in the hotel. 

The Lambert community is thrilled to get in the festive mood and celebrate Halloween with their favorite movie selections. Spooky season has arrived and the Longhorn Nation cannot be more pumped!
