Every Wednesday throughout October, the Center for Leadership and Development’s Sages program will host a scary movie night in community room two from 12-7 p.m.

This event has been held every Wednesday since Oct. 1 and screens horror movies to interested American River College students.

Last Wednesday, the the movie “Insidious” was screened.

Other movies shown include “Paranormal Activity 4,” “The Ring,” “The Uninvited,” “The House at the End of the Street,” and “Silent House.”

The month long event began with a showing of the documentary “Eid,” based on the Muslim holiday celebrated at the end of Ramadan.

The movie screenings are regularly attended by ARC students who are fans of the horror genre.

“(The movie nights are) pretty good, we show some good scary movies. Some damn scary movies,” said Adriel Stewart, an attendee for the movie 2011 horror movie “Insidious.”

The last scary movie night on Oct. 29 will be in community room two and will be showing “The Conjuring.”

At the end of the event on Oct. 29, Sages will show a documentary about the Mexican holiday Day of the Dead, which is celebrated from Oct. 31 to Nov. 2.

According to the Sages, the purpose of having the event was to encourage students to take part in events around the campus.

“We want to help students have more activities and feel more at home when they’re on campus,” said Vanessa Darling, one of the Sages who organized the event.

The month-long event will end on Oct. 29 with a showing of the movie “The Conjuring.”

Sages is a program on campus that hires students to be guides and facilitators of information to fellow students.
