Thank God it’s “Fright”day

Wilmington Main Campus will be experiencing another time honor tradition – APB is hosting its annual “Fright Night” movie showing tonight starting at 7:30 p.m. in Dining Rooms C and D.

This year, three movies will be featured back to back, each increasing in scariness as the night progresses. The initial movies selected are PG-13 rated “The Woman in Black,” R Rated “Demon House,” followed by the Found Film “The Taking of Deborah Logan.” These movies were chosen by the APB Board to spice up the event; however, APB potentially may not be able to showcase one of those films, so they will allow a vote at the time of the showing as to which movie to feature.

APB Director Kelsey Truex said, “We wanted to switch it up a little while still going back to the traditions of Fright Night and show three movies again, but this time starting sooner and starting with a less scary film, working up to a truly frightening movie.”

This event precedes the long-awaited “Relay for Life;” however, Relay for Life has a later starting time than years prior, thus more attendance is expected for this spooky event.

“I expect that this year’s Fright Night will be a success. We’re starting the movies a little earlier, and we’re staying inside so attendance won’t be affected by the cold weather. I’m also hoping the later start time for Relay for Life on Saturday will encourage more people to attend our late-night movie marathon,” said Truex.

All students are encouraged to attend this horror-filled movie marathon. Popcorn and candy will be offered, as well as on-the-edge-of-your-seat thrills and suspense.
