I need a horror flick to watch. I was thinking of watching Oculus (I've never seen it before and the trailer looked decent). Do you guys have any better suggestions?
Occulus sucks ass
The only good horror movie even half relevant to today's generation is The Shining. An argument could be made for cult classics but... that's if you wanted to go all film student discussion
Oculus is pretty shit. Expect no character development, a cheesy as fuck story line and one of the shittiest ending's you will ever see in any movie. Watch 'The thing', it maybe old but it's a classic
I do like The Shining, but i was hoping to see watch something that i haven't already seen. Not like you would know what i have or haven't seen. Any cult classics that you think the average person may not be privy to (though cult classic, by definition, would fall into that category)?
Deliver us from evil wasn't too bad, slightly disturbing more so than actual horror, Don't even bother with Annabelle that was boring as shit, same with The Conjuring.
The OG Texas Chainsaw Massacre was good
It was good the entire movie is about perception of what is real and what is not so you are literally going back and forth between memories and reality non stop. it fucks with your head its pretty good not too scary though
You can't be serious. Oculus really did have no character development or even plot. Two siblings obsess over a mirror that traumatized their childhood? One ended up in a mental institution and that wasn't likely to happen yet again?
>Horror movie fans are snobbish assholes who are incapable of suspending their disbelief for 2 fucking hours to enjoy a good movie.
Seems contradictory. If you are a fan of horror, then you are a fan of suspending your disbelief.
I think people seem to believe that if something is in the "horror" genre it needs to make you shit your pants to be considered good. You can have a good horror movie that doesn't make you afraid... It just needs to leave you horrified.
Except that most people hating on that movie aren't horror fans. Most horror fans can actually find enjoyment in the most stupid, low-budget piece of crap.
Silent Night, Deadly Night: Part 2 is one of my favorite movies of all time.
Quints has spoken.
The entire movie was character development and it was a lot of fun to watch for anyone with an imagination.
Protip: It's difficult to enjoy things when you're actively looking for faults within them because you think your some sort of master critic who is too euphoric to be entertained by plebian drivel.
The problem with Oculus was that the entire time you know most the shit they see is just an illusion and you're waiting to find out more information as to why what's happening actually is happening which never comes and the ending is stupidly predictable.
The point of the movie is that everything that happens could either be supernatural or caused by insanity... you're never given a definite answer one way or the other. You just assumed it was one way. If you pay attention you'll see that it's pretty open for interpretation and it was a lot of fun regardless.
How is it being an illusion any less horrifying than it being "real"? They were still in danger regardless of what was going on.
I dunno about god tier, but they were pretty damn good I thought. Would recommend both. Also "Rec" if you haven't seen that and don't mind watching subtitled movies. Don't watch the American adaptation.
Dear OP, I hope this thread leads you to many good spooky happenings this night. I recommend to you:
VHS 1 and 2
Rec (if you don't mind subbed foreign language films)
A good attempt would be The Others
Had it been redone with different casting, the movie would honestly be a modern revelation of cinematic horror. Unfortunately, Kidman's acting often takes away from the plot. However, that being said, the plot still holds up on its own with enough suspense and interest with even a twist.
The biggest danger was actually the oversized fedora you were wearing which was blocking your view of the good movie. Get an imagination, you're not as enlightened by your own intelligence as you think you are.
VHS or Rec? Either way go for it. Can't lose between those two if you don't mind the found footage thing.
I'd like to recommend a Chinese cartoon horror series to you.
It's called "ino tie ichi narutoinyuasha ichigo". It's super fucking cool. All the characters have big ass swords and there is tons of blood and shit. Also there's like 90 seasons so the characters really grow throughout the series. It's superior to American horror in pretty much every way.
OP asked for a horror flick to watch. He didn't ask for oscar winning material. Do you people seriously forget that we're talking about entertainment here? They're horror movies, not DaVinci paintings.
If the fedora fits...
P.S.- I don't want to have a "logical argument" with you.
I seriously enjoyed the remake
but then again I also really liked the Halloween remake
[spoiler]and My Soul To Take, that newer one by Wes Craven.[/spoiler] [/spoiler]
I'm a dude, she's a dude, we're all dudes, yeeeah
OP, I just thought of another one if you haven't seen it. Exorcism of Emily Rose was pretty good. Not your typical horror but it definitely has some moments that will stay with you.
Bringing "fedora" into discussion is like bringing someone being gay into it. You wouldn't if it didn't already apply to your own self-conscious issues.
P.S- the fuck did you post that image for?
I dunno what it is, maybe the female lead character just has the right look in my opinion? they really nailed the like typical dark hair, pale girl as the evil spirit.
there's something about foreign horror films that freaks me out way more than domestic ones.
>shit in pants/cry like a bitch
It's just refreshing to see how different cultures have different ideas about horror
Asian countries in particular are good with horror for some reason. Same thing with Japanese horror games. I dunno why that is. Maybe western stuff just isn't as immersive or as easy to relate with?
I've been watching a ton of horror movies trying to scare myself, but ever since playing Condemned nothing has been scary. Anyway, here are some horror movies that are good:
>The Thing (John Carpenter version)
>Stitches (more of a comedy though)
>Evil Dead Series
I'm gonna watch I Saw The Devil tonight.
Also thought I should share this.
>watching deliver us from evil in theaters
>as soon as the demon symbol thing pops up 2 guys start fighting somewhere in the back
>scared fucking shitless
For those of you who haven't seen it there's a symbol in the movie that's believed to posess you when you see it. They started fighting literally the second it popped up on screen.
>John Carpenters The Thing.
One of the, if not THE, best sci fi horror flick ever.
>The Thing (prequel)
Contemporary b.s where (spoiler and shocker) only the dumb bitch survives.
80s classic, must see for posterity (pic related)
I think you'll enjoy this. Don't go dubbed on it either. Original language and subs is the only way to see it all.
I thought it was bretty gud
Wasn't amazing or original or super memorable, but what horror is these days?
Just watch it. You won't be amazed or glad you did, but you'll be reasonably satisfied.
Same. The first "horror" film i saw was Child's Play when i was 8 y/o. Watched 5 minutes of cartoons afterwards and slept like a baby in a room filled with dolls and stuffed animals (shared the room with my younger sister)
