God-tier movie thread
please no spoilers
that movie was cheese as fuck
if that's what you call god tier, I suggest Brain Dead, Class of Nukem High and Sleepaway Camp
Only being half condescending. Loved those shitty movies.
Deathwatch (2002) - really creepy atmosphere
Martyrs - kinda freaky cause it could happen
VHS 1+2 - 3 sucked balls
Event Horizon - Dimensions and shit
Antichrist - well, kinda strange name for the content
Insidious 1+2 - really liked that the SFX were done with little cgi
Uzmaki - asian suspense with a teaspoon of gore
Don't Look Now - from '73 but it's really creepy
>Gotta say that I liked OPs movie cause it had a rather claustrophobic atmosphere. Sure there are better ones, but it was a solid 6/10 for me.
No offense, but I'm on my way to my 30s and when I was junger (like 10 or 11) it scared me shitless. Even when I watched it later again it still gave me goose bumps. There are just some things about older Horror/Suspense movies you young ones don't get cause you grew up with superior cgi and overkill gore scenes.
Curtains is a pretty good one, it's a little older and some parts are a little dated, but an interesting take on slashers.
Babadook, not gory but pretty suspenseful and has a good atmosphere and some creepy as hell moments.
Would you Rather? more of a indie movie, not a lot of gore, or suspense, but some interesting psychological dimensions and hey Jeffery Combs is in it.
If you don't mind a little comedy with your horror, Re-Animator is one of my favorite movies, it deviates a lot from the Lovecraft story but is still a good watch and a lot of the effects still look pretty good.
not terribly well written but great popcorn book about the the "hadals" subteranean species that is discovered blah blah link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Descent_%28novel%29
In the Mouth of Madness
Because, you know, why not. John Carpenter and Lovecraft.
i REALZ cereal
VHS 3 had one good short, albeit it was more funny than it was scary. Had a real raimi feel to it though, I liked it
>Sk8r Punks aint fraid of no skelly-bellies
It seems that the kids these days don't appreciate, or are scared by this anymore. I think that it had to do with the shitty attention spans of this ADHD generation. Coupled with crippled empathy, brought on by the narcissism of social media, I don't think they get scared without the formulaic bs...
>scary ghost kids who look like their in Halloween costumes
>obligatory back turned, spin them around, spooky face
>gay jump scares that only work on dimwits who don't notice the score telegraphing it
>the cgi, super fast face shake/warp
>still pg 13
For a good example, check out the trailer for the new, unnecessary, Poltergeist reboot.
I don't know about everyone else, but I hate a lot of gore scenes. I think they're annoying and generally not scary. I think it's better if the demise of character is either left to the imagination of the character, or done with a tasteful amount of gore.
opinion noted and discarded. have a nice morning.
>fine then. i didn't want you to watch the movie anyway!
This was pretty spoopy. No shitty jump scares, no excessive gore.
/x/ is like talking to that retard in the back of class who actually gets addicted to acid
Are you referring to The Descent by Jeff Long?
Because despite having the same title and similar concept the movie wasn't intetionally based on it its a coincidence.
If anyone is interested the book was pretty good at least i thought so as a high schooler in 1999.
Its about the modern world discovering a huge massively extensive network of caves stretching all over the world with a whole subterranean Eco system including horned subterranean hominids who are the the sources of all mythology about hell and demons. It gets pretty dark considering its basically an adventure book with some pretty /x/ relevant occourances and side stories.
Anybody here seen Rigor Mortis?
I saw it on ntflix thought it was pretty good giant haunted Chinese tenement where everyone is going through the long dark night of the soul janky as fuck Chinese ghost and vampire mythology pretty good special effects.
Not a bad movie at all.
Yep. Pretty much this. Gore for the sake of gore is boring and bit old hat. Horror films that rely on it solely, are fucking amateur. But on the other hand i guess gross-out/gore films are their own niche these days.
For me, gore is only effective when it's matched or exceeded by the amount of empathy i feel for the characters/situation/plot etc..
Martyrs was incredible. Changed my outlook on spirituality. Recommend "Enter the Void"
Frontier(s), I think that's how it's spelled, might get you then. French neo-nazi's get a hold of some fleeing Jews and basically hostel and you're next go down. That description might be a bit of a turn off, but I regularly return to it. Just super well done.
Yeah nah i agree it was a pretty shit movie. I was mucking around with my SSRI meds around the time i watched it, perhaps that could be a factor. I finished watching it and came to the conclusion that yes it was analytically and empirically a bad film. At the same time it made me feel sick and disturbed. I think this is because in the beginning i thought i was watching some dumb-fuck degrassi high shit and thus acclimated myself to that point. When the 'images' came up on the screen i pretty much shat myself.
But yes, i do agree, bad movie.
Ah yeah i can kinda understand that SSRI-bro. Fuck it feels good to finally be off those numbing things after a whole year.
To keep it relevant i'm gonna say Martyrs for sure. I don't know if this is very /x/ but Let The Right One In is a hell of a great film.
"Na srebrnym globie"
by Anrew Zulawski
those fucking vines man. I should give it a rewatch.
This film was pretty fucking unsettling.
>The 2005 film of the same name contains similar plot elements (a subterranean expedition trapped underground with carnivorous Troglofaunal hominid creatures), but was not based on the book.
Did you even read the page you linked?
This movie isn't paranormal but it deserves to be posted in any thread anywhere.
This movie was retarded. The reveal at the end renders the entire film impossible. Fucking stupid. It's like they came up with the "twist" first, then tried to write a movie around it. And I stress the word "tried".
This movie legitimately makes me angry.
Sick fucks... I hope whoever wrote this has a very unhappy life. The even more sick thing is that this probably happening right now. Fuck me..
Maybe so. I'd imagine with that person's mind they are already not so happy. But maybe they dream of rainbows and unicorns and just wanted to write a snuff film for shits and giggles.
what are you on about, when your young horror movies scare the living shit out of you because your so guillable and think that the boogie man is in your closet or under the bed, as you grow up horror movies lose that scary touch. i tried watching Friday the 13th the other day, that shit traumatized me when I was a kid, now it's something I can have in the background while I sleep. horror movies arnet as scary when you finally grow up
The guy at the end of the movie was clearly watching snuff films, was he not? There was a whole group of people committed to stalking and killing victims for others to watch.
So no it was not a snuff film, it was about snuff films, my bad.
>turn into an dick without any imagination
Not quite the same thing, are they champ?
I dunno. I should stop watching horror and gore at all, I just get so scared about us as humans. How terrifying we are, especially to each other even knowing how much suffering there is in this world.
I'm a pussy.
who said I had no imagination, All I'm saying is that I'm not gonna go to sleep thinking theirs a monster under my bed because I watched a horror movie, Im not 8 anymore, but hey, you stay guillable m8, if not santa will put you on the naughty list.
But The Descent fucking sucked. And so does every millennial's taste in movies in this thread. You guys think that jump scares tied in with sudden and loud musical cues and gore make horror; you don't know anything about it. Your opinions are irrelevant. Leave /x/ while you're at it and go back to Tumblr if this trite actually frightens you, it's clear you're quite triggered and try to impress your millennial opinions and tastes as matters of fact, which they are the exact opposite. I bet you say "spoopy," too, and unironically at that.
Well at least this guy's not a pussy.
Take off your unnecessary tripcode, you self-centered egotist. You don't need it to have a discussion with us, and your insistence of using a tripcode unnecessarily is proof of your crippling belief that this community cares about your opinions specifically and is proof of your inferiority as a result of your egotism. Please follow 4chan culture, the site that works around the clock to provide free content for you from an anonymous basis and an anonymous culture, or leave.
I said you had no imagination. Imagination is what makes horror movies better. I'm sorry that you're too fucking stupid to appreciate being scared without seeing exactly what is going on in super twitch motion and having everything explained to you. I'm also sorry that you use numbers to spell out words.
>If it's in a word,
>Or it's in a look
Why not "book?" Holy fuck this movie looks like such shit just from the tryhard gritty and edgy movie poster. And look at those faggot shills on the left and right of the tryhard gritty and edgy center figure of the movie poster.
Fuck horror movies in the modern era. Holy fuck.
Surprised nobody talked about this creepy and beautiful spanish movie: pic related.
Yeah, not bad!
A found footage movie that is actually really good. Definitely god tier
Pretty much the most disturbing movie I've seen, it's really well made, and scary in a quite unique way.
We like to believe we're better than those savage animals out in the wilderness, but deep down we all know it's a lie. One upside to our society structure is it promotes conformity and good behavior (okay, at least somewhat moral goodness I guess). Keeps most in their place out of fear of being ostracized. There are some who truly do not care. Those are the people we need to watch out for. They're good at hiding though. Humans are fucking terrifying, man.
Yeah definitely man. I've watched it with girlfriends that aren't into horror at all and even they loved it - it's just so beautifully shot. They kind of fucked that charm up royally with Let Me In.
Let me in didn't capture that intimacy between Oskar and Eli had. It went more for oh I like this blood thirsty monster with a conscience as opposed to a dark, almost adult relationship between two people in a seriously fucked up situation that keeps getting worse.
That movie frightened the poopoo out of me. Thanks, I didnt need to sleep tonight anyways.
Well, it was absolutely horrifying how much of a fucking trainwreck this movie is.
did anyone just say spanish
It's kinda funny Pan's Labyrinth hasn't been mentioned yet considering all the creepy shit.
Did anyone watch this? I wouldn't say it's great but it had some creepy and weird moments.
I watched it a while back on sci-fi. It was alright.
Side note, has anyone seen something called Lord of Tears? Here's the link to the website, trying to decide if I wanna give it a go or not:
>God Bless America
Jesus Christ, this pandering garbage was awful. There were no characters in this movie, just a couple of mouths to rant on the writers behalf and a dozen or so drooling morons for the sake of winning arguments with himself. The entire film was nothing more than a soapbox for petulant angst.
It's also not relevant to the thread.
Obviously the original version, not that horrible remake.
Also watched Shutter the other day, the original asian version from 2004, it's pretty good, spooky and atmospheric, I recommend it.
>Obviously the original version
> not that horrible remake
The "original" IS a remake
The "remake" is a prequel
Twist: pic related is the actual original
You were watching a remake all along
Also you are a ghost
i want to say thanks for my first thread over 200 posts
now only if it maxed out...
Actually a very spooky enjoyable film with really interesting and creepy visuals. Though I didn't much care for the annoying as hell child actor. I also thought that when they tried using stock Jurassic park dinosaur roars for the Babadook, really killed the experience for me.
Dark Portals was fucking slick.
Not very (Or at all) scary but man did it ever have style.
Somehow by just making 'Hellraiser In Space' they made a film far superior than any of the Hallraiser films. Not scary depending on who you are but a very, very fun movie.
i hate the guy who says "grow up" more than the next guy, but after living for three decades, it's clear that the process of replacing innocence with experience over time has flavored our tastes with an exquisite need.
tl;dr: growing up, you want different things.
Some of my favorites that I don't think were mentioned;
Silence of the Lambs
Prince of Darkness
and I am grateful I did not see "Cabin in the Woods" on this list.
oddly enough, i also read this book and enjoyed it. i say oddly because i usually never read this type of embossed cover pulp stuff. but, i was on a flight to california from new york and someone had left a copy of this book in the seat-back pouch. read it cover to cover over the next two days. pretty compelling.
Just watched this one. I liked it quite a bit more than House of the Devil. Same sort of long slow burn and last fifteen minutes payoff, but a much more enjoyable ride. On a second viewing of HotD I felt like there was too much quiet sitting around.
DESCENT SPOILERS BELOW
A few points of clarification: I understand that there are actually two endings to this movie - I believe I watched the UK ending. Second, the video quality was somewhat poor, so that could have affected my impression somewhat.
This movie doesn't really make any sense to me at all and I found it very hard to follow (again this could have been because of the low video quality?) After watching it I had to actually go back and read the Wiki article to catch up on what I missed. It's not that the plot is complex, it's just chaotic - the cast is 7 or so women who all look very similar. The movie consists of shots of them running through caverns in dim light, with lots of screaming of course. So you aren't always sure who you are watching, where everyone is in relation to each other, and what is going on in general.
The first 15 minutes or so of the film recounts a tragic accident during which the main character loses both her husband and daughter. Apart from a 30 second shot at the end of the film, this scene has basically nothing to do with the rest of the movie. It's unnecessary and doesn't serve any purpose.
DESCENT SPOILERS CONT
From there things get off to a good start - the girls begin exploring a cave. The lighting, music, and caverns set up a nice spooky, claustrophobic feeling. One scene in particular in which the girls have to squeeze through a really narrow passage made my skin crawl. After they all make it through the passage it caves in, and that's where things go to shit (for the girls, and the viewer).
It's revealed that some kind of proto-humans have adapted themselves to cave life and are now living in the cave. The creatures are nothing to write home about. They look like pale elves. The women also continually kick their asses too, so you don't feel that scared of them as a viewer.
Also, as a biologist I just can't suspend my sense of disbelief with these creatures. So they are adapted to cave life, have no pigment, and are completely blind, but it's also mentioned that they travel to the surface to hunt??? How does that make sense? Why do they live in caves at all then? How is a pale, blind humanoid not easily avoidable by other animals?
It's also revealed that "they evolved to sense with sound, like bats". So they echo locate? That can't be true though, because there are points when the creatures are literally inches away from one of the girls and they can't sense them. I guess they can't smell either? And on the topic of their hearing, they must be terrible at that too. Only the loudest noises seem to interest the creatures (alarms, screams, etc). Talking, clanking, walking - nothing.
Had to get that out of the way. From there, the movie is just a series of jump scares. The girls are then attacked by the creatures, and then either die or fight them off. Rinse and repeat. It gets to the point where you can almost count down the jump scare in your head.
DESCENT SPOILERS CONT.
There's another scene I have to mention. One girl is on her own fighting off the creatures. She's wildly swing her pick ax around, and then accidentally stabs another one of the girls in the head, killing her (why did that girl sneak up on her?!). Later, our main character stumbles upon this injured woman, finding that she isn't actually dead. The injured girl explains what happened.
Later, our main character confronts the 'killer' about this. She stabs her in the leg, leaving her to be eaten by the crawlers!! Holy shit it was an accident! This was totally disorienting. It made no sense at all.
Finally, the last remaining woman fights off some crawlers and makes it out of the cave. She runs to her car and makes her way back to the cabin. On the way back a truck drives by and startles her.
She WAKES UP, realizing that she is still in the cave. It's just a quick shot of her in a cavern, so we have no idea where she is or what 'point' this is in the film. So probably the majority of what we've just witnessed was a dream - but you can hear the screams of the crawlers so they must still be real.
WHY? just why? nothing makes any sense. If feels like the movie isn't even taking itself seriously. I have no idea why this movie is generally acclaimed and considered scary. The amount I've written is a testament to my confusion.
having just watched this after seeing this recommendation, this is a perfect review of everything wrong with the movie
i can't believe there's a single person in the entire world that considers this movie god-tier. i'm pretty sure we've been trolled
1.5/10 is pretty accurate, the .5 being for that one scene with the chicks crawling through tight spaces, always creeps me out.
>How is a pale, blind humanoid not easily avoidable by other animals?
by making absolutely no noise while moving and don't smell. Being blind doesn't mean to be helpless.
Actually I had absolutely no problems with the movie like you had, for example the who-am-I-watching-thing.
