5 Horror Films Perfect For Spring Break

Spring break is a great time to let your guard down and go for a swim. Just don't look into the water for too long...

5 Horror Films Perfect For Spring Break

Water-based horror films are severely underrated; what we can't see scares us. Sure, these films can be cheesy and unrealistic, but sometimes that's part of the fun. Either way, you'll be struggling to forget these creepy water-lurking creatures next time you're swimming in the deep.

Jaws (1975)


What's better than a day on the beach? A day on the beach after watching Jaws! This iconic film made audiences everywhere fear the ruler of the ocean: the shark. While we now know that sharks aren't bloodthirsty man-eaters, fact is hard to separate from fiction when we're floating in the murky depths. If you feel something brush your foot, don't panic. It was probably just a fish... right?

Sweetheart (2019)


Going to a tropical island? Well, that's the perfect setting to watch Sweetheart, a Blumhouse original about a girl who gets stranded on an island. By day, she has to survive the elements; but by night, she has to survive the savage monster that stalks the island and its coast. This is the perfect film to watch before a late-night beach bonfire. Just don't let it see you!

Piranha 3D (2010)


While this may be a notoriously obnoxious film, it still deserves a place on the list due to the sheer panic that is felt when piranhas are mentioned in real life. This horror comedy showcases the spring breakers in a lakeside town who find something sinister swarming in the lake. No matter how unrealistic and hilarious the film is, it'll still make you swim a little faster to the shore. Also, Adam Scott stars in it.

Creature From The Black Lagoon (1954)


This list would be nothing without the OG water monster! If you ever wanted to watch a scary movie with your grandparents without scaring them too much, this is the perfect remedy! Creature From The Black Lagoon is a widely known classic in the horror genre and still makes an impact on audiences today. Next time you're in the lake and someone grabs your ankle, swim fast!

Lake Placid (1999)


Last but not least, this movie has given the crocodile a similar reputation to that of the shark. The creature in this film is a giant man-eating crocodile that feasts on the visitors in the lake. This creature has spawned a series of six films over the years, with the latest being in 2018. Lake Placid is widely regarded as a cult film, so don't hesitate to watch it at your lake house!
