7 Actually Good Modern Horror Movies To Watch With Your Tinder Date

Uhm yeah, who says Netflix and chill has to be watching re-runs of Friends or The Office for the 30th time. Like yeah, we get, you like Michael Scott, who doesn't?

That also doesn't mean you have to watch doo-doo ass horror movies that you can barely make it through the introduction of. It's 2018, and we want good horror movies! I want to be scared shitless, sacred and be psychologically challenged as well. That means no more boring ghost stories or evil dolls coming alive. It's not the 1990's.

1. Hereditary (2018)

Giphy

If you want to feel uncomfortable and somewhat disturbed, then this is the movie for you. Also a nice remainder to take your birth control ladies!

2. The Cabin in the Woods (2011)

Giphy

Ah, post-moderism. This movie takes a wild twist on the basic horror movie troupes.

3. A Quiet Place (2018)

Giphy

This whole movie was very intense and it gave me severe anxiety. But it's ok, because John Kranski's dad bread makes up for it, and I would sit through that a second time just to experience the dad bread up close on the big screen. The movie plays on the performance of body language and sound instead of dialogue, so it really keeps you on the edge of your seat!

4. Annihilation (2018)

Giphy

Can't tell if I watched a horror movie or had an out-of-body experience. This is the type of horror that makes you feel like your skin is crawling. I felt somewhat uncomfortable in my own skin after watching this. Also the production design is really something else, and it obviously deserves an Oscar. It also reminds me of a Tame Impala music video...hmmm.

5. Mother! (2017)

Giphy

This is really not your typical horror movie, nor is it a really bad acid trip. It's actually an allegory and oh boy, you'll be surprised to see what Darren Aronosky is referencing. The metaphor doesn't bashed you over the head right away. So it's okay if you don't pick it up the first time you watch it.

Just try to get through it, make a guess and then look it up. It's defintely not what I expected to be.

6. The Babadook (2014)

Giphy

Creepy? Yes. Gloomy? Yes. Disturbing? Yes. Refreshing? Absolutely.

This psychological horror I had watch two years ago left a big dent in my brain, and now I can't sleep with the lights off. Your childhood nightmare has followed you and now seems to become a terrifying reality that not only you suffer, but also your family.

7. Get Out (2017)

Giphy

Intelligent? Funny? Political? Wicked? Yes, yes, and more yes! But most of all...scary? Of course.

It's a new kind of horror that doesn't involve dolls, ghosts or possessed twins. Jordan Peele's directorial debut makes you rethink about the society we live in. It also makes me not want to drink tea or come near a 10 foot radius of any white women who has a cup of tea.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy
Disney

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

7328

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
