Netflix has some pretty cheesy scary movies, so here's a few that absolutely aren't.

The 5 Best Horror Movies On Netflix

1. Hush

A deaf writer who chooses to live alone in a cabin in the woods is suddenly stalked by a masked killer that threatens to come into her home. She must fight her way to survival without being able to hear any moves the killer is making.

2. Visions

A couple expecting a child move into an old vineyard property together, and strange things start to plague the wife's dreams at night. She has hallucinations during the day, and her husband doesn't believe that things that she says she sees or hears. Throughout the movie, she works to figure out the property's dark past to try and uncover what is causing these terrifying nightmares.

3. The Rezort

After a war battling zombies (I know, I know, just bear with me.), the living dead are held and contained on a deserted island where tourists can stay and hunt them for fun. However, when the security system fails and the people get stuck inside the barriers with the zombies, they must try and fight their way out without being bitten or turned into zombies themselves. This is an action-packed movie that has some gory parts to it, but that's to be expected with flesh-eating zombies, right?

4. The Den


A woman using a research grant to track online chatting habits witnesses a gruesome murder, yet no one believes her and can find no trace of the girl she saw. However, weird things ensue when someone hacks her webcam and starts messing with her life, including hunting down everyone she knows or has chatted to. This movie is definitely one that keeps you on the edge of your seat but it does get a little gruesome at certain parts.

5. The Disappointments Room

An architect moves her family into an old, fixer-upper in a small town and finds a hidden room in the attic that is not on the blueprints. She goes into town to find out what it is, and she learns it could be a disappointments room, which was used decades ago to house any child with a physical or mental disability that the family did not want to be seen by the public. As she tries to explore and unlock the door, she becomes haunted by the ghosts of the past, whether it be the children or the demented father that kept them there. It's a ghost story with a pretty slow start but definitely worth the watch.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
