Top 9 Back to School Horror Films
4. The Craft
A group of troubled teenagers rarely makes for a good ending in any movie, but The Craft sees to it that these students are even badder than normal, rounding up Sarah, Bonnie, Nancy, and Rochelle as social outcasts who also happen to dabble in witchcraft... in a Catholic high school, no less. The fledgling witch coven begins to wreak havoc upon their fellow students (read: anyone who dares to get in their way). Eventually the childish high school drama they cause takes a turn for the worst as their previously seemingly harmless spells turn into damaging and powerful curses that end up even more destructive and callous than ever imagined, eventually culminating in powers being stripped and some particularly catty high schoolers learning a much-needed lesson or two.
5. Jennifer's Body
This modern high school thriller may as well have been titled "Megan Fox Does Terrible Things," but we'll give it the benefit of the doubt. Megan Fox's gorgeous body hides a demonic spirit that's now in control over her every function. As her complete opposite BFF watches her disembowel and otherwise maim the captain of the football team and a string of other men, she knows she's got to do something, and fast. This darkly playful tale is a fantastic representation of current high school trends and experiences, even exploring unlikely relationships and other teenage happenings that really are just as terrifying as the movie portrays. It's also kind of funny, in a demon-possessing-your-cheerleader-best-friend kind of way. Don't let Megan Fox's starring role turn you away.
