Summer Of Scares – Part 1: Vacation Nightmares & Summertime Slash-a-thons!

Summer is officially here!

While many are headed to the beach and lounging poolside, why not beat heat and cool off with a great scary movie?

On a recent episode of the horror-loving podcast, Shockwaves, hosts Rebekah McKendry, Rob Galluzzo, Elric Kane, Ryan Turek, and guest Jeffrey Reddick (creator of Final Destination) discussed their favorite summer horror movies. They listed some great picks, and Rob wrote an article on Blumhouse.com with his selection of summer slashers.

It got us thinking about what horror movies we love revisiting every summer.

Instead of waiting until October to satisfy your horror cravings- pull the shades, and enjoy a horror movie that’s perfectly suited for summertime.

We kick off the first post in this three-part series with some of our favorites featuring getaways gone wrong and slashers of summer.

Also- if you’re on Instagram, be sure to join us this July for Mr. and Mrs. Halloween’s Summer of Scares Horror Challenge! We’ll be sharing our favorite moments from summer horror films throughout the month of July, and we hope you’ll join in on the fun by sharing your favorites too! Be sure to include #SummerOfScares
