2017 is the year in which scary movies are a big hit.

All throughout 2017 many frightening movies are being produced and filmed. According to www.filmsite.org there are over 30 genres of film. Although drama is rated # 1 genre, horror movies are in the top 10 favorite.

“My favorite genre is horror because I love being led to unknown actions and scenes,” senior Bracklyn Martinez said.

According to www.screenrant.com 2016 was the year full of the most popular horror films and 2017 had a high bar to reach. It is believed to have beat it having the 4 best horror films as #1 Alien: Covenant, #2 A Cure for Wellness, #3 The Mummy and #4 Get Out but it will not be official until there are reviews from each movie.

“Get Out was my favorite movie because it was realistic, that it could really happen; it was a real thriller,” senior Isaiah Zuniga said.

Although many horror films seem perfect there are many steps throughout the way that have to be done. Hard work and dedication are the two keys to success.

“I give props to film makers and editors because it is a lot harder then it seems,” senior Serina Ledesma said.

Ledesma having taken a film analysis class knows all the difficult steps to success.

These movies took many months to find the right actors for the script as told in www.quora.com . Child actors and actresses can only be used in limited ways for limited amounts of time during these films. Directors film the scene with one actor then they move to the next scene to help the film get done faster.

“If I was in a scary movie I think I would be the victim because I get scared easily and it would be a perfect role for me,” Cameron Cloud said.

Scary movies films usually take around a year to complete, 12-18 months to finish the ADR: reshoots, special effects, CGI (computer generated imagery), and normal delays due to financing and unforeseen problems. All movies have a different hard working story background.
