anything good come out last year? i think i missed almost everything. considering watching the sequels to insidious, sinister, paranormal activity, and something else i can't remember... not becaus ei think they're good but because i've seen every other installment in the series so why stop? >>64608533 srsly? can't wait for vod of krampus tbt amigo
Look, I love Noroi, especially considering I have a soft spot for found footage. But Kairo is pretty much a perfect horror movie. From the tension of the hallway scene (one of the few times I've actually experienced true, pit of my stomach dread watching a movie) to the overall doom and gloom atmosphere that permeates the film. You actually feel the movie weighing down on you even after you've finished watching it, leaving you feeling isolated and alone and hopeless. There's a reason it's refereed to as "The Gloomy Sunday of horror movies".
>>64608592 Jagten's scarier, m8. Speaking of foreign spooks... Do you think foreign language makes shit scarier or do subtitles ease the tension? >>64608735 I forgot I saw It Follows. That was great. I loved every minute of it. It is the only horror movie I've seen in years that I'll randomly think back to and feel uneasy again like I did at the end.
Asked this in the last horror thread and I'll ask again because I'm hungry for more.
I recently watched Vampyr and loved it. Instantly one of my favorites. I'd like to see more, and I hate to use this term but I can't think of any other way to describe it because I've been here way too long, "patrician" horror movies. Next on my list is The Phantom Carriage, and I got some good recs in the other thread, but if you guys have any more, I'd love to hear them to add to my list.
>>64609116 Im assuming you mean Kubrick's the shining? Its my top horror movie, and in my top 10 movies of all time. With the risk of sounding like a pretentious POS, the camerawork in that movie is simply amazing.
>>64609288 I know what you mean. It's like back in the day when Iron Chef was new to U.S. viewers, the big part of the appeal is the weird foreign culture shock. Like in Noroi there's the weird cable TV show with those two ugly guys who happen to be doing a ghost segment. It seems very strange, but also engaging, to U.S. viewers, but must look very different to native Japanese.
There's another movie by the same guy who did Noroi. It's called Shirome. It's got some genuinely great scares, but what really turns me off about it is it follows this Japanese girl pop band. They're so annoying to me I can hardly watch it. They're always screaming and pretending to cry and cuddling with each other and shit, and maybe that's something a Japanese audience can get over, but it drives me up the wall.
>>64609452 i think there are like three people on /tv/ who liked the banshee chapter including you and me. i don't know why though because it wasn't particularly scary, to speak for myself. i think i just connected with a lot of the themes and characters. >>64609473 it's lovecraftian, mate.
>>64609452 I have seen Banshee Chapter, and I couldn't get into it.
I'm a big Lovecraft fan, a big Hunter S. Thompson fan, and a chemist by profession. There's just too much that makes me cringe.
The Hunter Thompson impersonation in particular is something that ruined my suspension of disbelief. I wish they had just gone with some angry counter-culture/drug-culture author with a grudge, instead of a direct impersonation. They even had him dropping famous quotes. Totally took me out of it.
I have a major boner for found footage/pseudo documentaries, so it hit all the right buttons for me. I thought the execution was just fine. Maybe I was more drawn to the movie because of my predisposition, I dunno, but I really enjoyed it.
>>64609712 Wait, is that the one where the government is trying to do research on psychic powers, but none of their subjects are legit, and then they find that one woman whose posessed and they research her to try to turn her into a weapon?
What's funny is, for all the shit it gets around here, the majority of not just /tv/, but 4chan itself still hasn't grasped the main theme of the movie. And it's not even like it's that deep, or hard to get. The director beats you over the head with it and even outright states it during both the beginning and the end of the movie. Shame it gets hate around here, because it really was a fantastic movie.
>>64609968 Austrian horror movie about a pair of young twins. Their mom comes back from a facial surgery, and she seems different. Gets sorta predictable, but it does suspense very well. Definitely worth a watch I'd say.
>>64610320 The movie had no idea what it wanted to be, it shits on it's lore and it's characters do random out of sync things all the time. It had potential but shits itself in the second and third act. Honestly with "how well it was shot" or "that soundtrack" It should have been called; The Pretentious Implication.
You're missing the point. We get as much knowledge of the lore that the characters in the movie have. They don't know or understand everything completely, so we don't. There are supposed to be unknowns. There are supposed to be unsaid connections the viewers are supposed to make going by what they've seen. And, aside from the one instance where the Follower was standing on top of her house, it always kept consistent with the lore.
>>64610790 the unborn when it was over i literally hid underneath the covers i was not able to enter a room with the lights off for months a grown man shouldn't have to live like that, man it wasn't even a good movie
>>64610652 "It will always follow you" Except when it was right next to her in an unconscious vehicle where she spent god knows how long unconscious in a hospital, it won't. It understands and will give you a whole fucking day to pass it on for the plot.
Again it will always follow you Except when it spends god knows how long on your roof to have that one creepy shot the directors wanted in for some reason.
It will take shape of the ones you love and mimic their voices That's cool except it never does that till the end and it's only noticeable who "it" is if you're a fucking faggot and break down this piece of shit shot by shot.
As a coming of age movie it's meh as a horror movie it's fucking garbage.
>>64611224 >>64611325 oh and the nightmare spooked me a little bit as well, particularly because of one part in the movie where a person suffering sleep paralysis tells their friend about their condition and then THEY start having sleep paralysis. so i was paranoid the movie would give me sleep paralysis (did not happen)
When I was younger I thought I was either going crazy or I was legit haunted. Either way, it wasn't pleasant. I found The Nightmare to be a little too out there when describing sleep paralysis. If you want an accurate depiction of what sleep paralysis is like, this kid's youtube video actually is the most accurate portrayal I've ever seen:
>>64611623 Lol okay champ, we can simply agree to disagree I don't want to come off as too much of a fag but There's also a thread on /tv/ talking about how great and scary Even Horizon was so stay classy retards.
>Looking for a scary movie on Netflix >An Evil presence in the house >In this found footage a group of ...... >The house has an evil hold on the ...... >Footage is found of........ >While buying a house, this couple finds a good deal, but soon the house .....
What are some good spoopy movies on Netflix? No found footage, and no weird hauntings.
Give me a good old fashioned killer or maniac with a good storyline/twist.
>>64611547 So do you just get the feeling of the paralysis but like everything is dark and you can't wake up
Or do you get the upgrade where you also hallucinate and see shit out of the corner of your eye/look at an area and feel intense fear
But man I feel for you, I used to have nightmares every night from about 8 to 14 which then progressed to less frequent but with varying sleep paralysis experience in the mix. When I stay round my parents' house to visit, I never sleep with the lights out, only place in the world I can't sleep easy. I swear the place might as well be haunted, feels like there's something wrong there even if it's just in my mind
I'd tell you to watch Berberian Sound Studio, but the cunts removed it from their service. The Last Shift was pretty good, and seems to get a lot of love in /tv/ horror threads, so you might as well check it out.
>>64611796 >and that's it The entire subway station from Silent Hill 3 is basically an entire level as a homage to Jacob's Ladder. The transformation into the hospital otherworld in SH2 is also clearly a reference to the hospital gurney scene.
Paralysis and full on hallucinations. Sometimes I really don't see much. Just something out of the corner of my eye. Sometimes, I see blatant things right in front of/next to/on top of me. And yes, I can feel them, too. The worst is when, despite being paralyzed, I can slowly crawl my way out of bed, and make my way along the floor, inch by fucking inch taking every effort I have all while feeling absolutely terrified. Then I finally get to my door and hope once I'm out someone finds me and helps me, only for me to be suddenly back in my bed, still paralyzed, still under the effects. Oh yeah, gotta love when I get a double dose as well. That's when I actually wake up and really, truly am out of it. I'll fuck around for an hour or two, then when I go back to bed, surprise surprise, another bout.
Also, when you come out of it, are you unsure you're finally awake? I always need to ask someone over and over again to reassure me that I'm really awake and not dreaming anymore, and my head feels light and I'm still kinda out of it for an hour or so.
>>64611796 Not really the entire school in the first game was modeled after the school from Kindergarten Cop and The Subway in SH3 and the intro to SH5 are almost shot for shot the same from Jacob's ladder. that and yeah monster designs. Not to say it's bad but saying SH isn't inspired by Jacob's ladder would be like saying Deadly Premonition wasn't inspired by Twin Peaks.
>>64611874 Well, that's pretty cool. Still, they are very different. I know people who were disappointed in JL because they thought it was going to be SH: the movie. Their stories are different, they deal with different themes, etc. IMO JL is a lot more disturbing.
That's the crazy part, anon. I never sleep on my back. I'm always on my side or stomach, and it still fucking happens. Hell, I honestly think the stomach ones are the worst, because I can't see them at all, but I know they're there and I can feel them sitting on the bed next to me, on my back, tugging at my hair. It's like, I'd at least rather know what the nightmare is, because the unknown is infinitely worst.
>>64611980 That's rough man. I used to get mostly just the in the dark stuff where I'd come out of a nightmare into what felt like an almost awakened state except I was being painfully eaten alive, or hands would be touching me then they'd start stabbing and scratching. Glad I didn't really get the hallucinations on top
Yeah I remember double dips, just loved triple layers of nightmares then a bout of paralysis wew lad
I always just had to deal with it for the most part. I shared a room with my brother but I didn't like waking him after I'd been through one. I'd just go to the bathroom and try the lights to reassure myself I was awake
Yeah. I'm the poster that did acid before watching Jacob's Ladder. Strangely, I was always comfortable on it, enjoying it, even pushing my limits. I used to love to set up mirrors so I can get that infinite view and, at one friends house, do this with a blacklight while listening to some industrial/darkwave/EBM. That shit went on years after I had started having sleep paralysis, though. I've even checked to see if it was genetic, asking others in my family if they've had it. Turns out I'm the only one. Then again, a good chunk of them are black out drunks, so that could be why they never experienced it.
No, not really. I'm in the same boat as you. Might as well watch the sequels, but I'm not paying for them.
I thought Insidious 3 was actually the best of the trilogy. I hated 1 and thought 2 was alright. Take that how you will. Haven't gotten around to Sinister 2 because I hated the fact that they basically used the douche from Slipknot as their monster. The latest Paranormal Activity was more of the same but it was better than some of the other sequels.
>>64611913 I want to actually be scared that something is going to kill me. Creature features usually suck when you see the monster. Found footage is lame and almost always low quality. Weird possessions or ghostly presence in a house is just a couple jump scares and it needs to have a really good story to be worth watching.
Whatever happened to classic slasher films or the likes of Friday the 13th or Nightmare on Elm Street? I want something like that, but with a fresh twist. I watched the Scream TV series and really enjoyed it. Wrong Turn 1 made me shit my pants almost, one of my favourite movies. The Decent was a terrifying movie. The Hills have eyes is another good one (The remakes are just as good as the original).
I don't want horror porn, but I want some terrifying story to spook me.
I already watched the Babadook and i wanted to punch a wall when it was over. Fuck, that movie sucked.

>>64613821 It's not a Lovecraft story. It's only Lovecraftian in the vaguest of senses. Suggestions of ancient pagan cults out in remote places. Unspeakable horrors beneath the earth. It's the sort of stuff HPL loved, but that's still a pretty loose connection, so most people don't really go around calling it Lovecraftian.
I mean, The Ghostbusters had a stronger Lovecraft connection than The Borderlands, but nobody really mentions that when they're talking about it.
I can't find any horror movie scary. I literally can't. Because if it's supernatural, then I know such things cannot exist IRL and therefore I can't be scared. If it's not supernatural, then I know my glock and AK-47 can take care of the issue therefore I can't be scared. I find war and disaster movies to be scarier than horror movies.
>'Dont let it touch you' >First victim literally snapped to pieces >Comes into contact with main girl with 100% clean kill ambush mode on the beach >Pulls her fucking hair instead of just twisting her head off
I've totally forgotten the title of a horror movie I was planning to watch. Only thing I recall about the summary is that it involved girls on a cruise ship/some other type of boat. Anyone know what the fuck I'm talking about?
I tell you what killed this movie for me. The fucking ad. I saw it at the cinema and it legitimately ruined all the big moments. Seeing it a few weeks later and I was bored stiff by it because of this.
I had the opposite experience with Area 51. I gave the getting-into-the-base part some leeway, so that turned out okay, but once they were inside it felt weak and it made no sense.
I was hoping for more interesting science shit but it was more like, here's this room with some conspiracy-tard science, now let's run around a bit. They find aliens eventually and they're perpetually in the dark, with no real interesting encounter with them because they just want to kill you for some reason.
