ITT: Horror movies you've seen that just stuck with you for some reason. Year/subgenre/underground or not it doesn't matter. Pic related.
I'm probably a lamefag but The Descent stuck with me, as well the original Alien movie.
I think horror movies are in kind of a ditch due to modernity quashing so many of our instinctual fears of the unknown, so it's hard to make anything good now.
I've seen a lot of stuff recently, like Serbian Movie, stuff in that genre, but those films are really just shockers rather than horror.
Ravenous. That soundtrack, mate. Also, movies with wendigos are always fun.
I really like the Descent and Alien, too bad the sequels were all pretty lame (especially for Descent).
A lot of modern horror is just rehashed shit over and over. I'm a huge horror fan so it takes a truly awful movie to turn me away, but I can't lie and say most of them are "good".
A Serbian Movie made me laugh because of how over-the-top it was. Like Human Centipede on steroids.
I haven't seen it but I might need to check it out, I'm always looking for new horror and Netflix's catalog is running thin since I've watched so much of it.
Never heard of pic related, and I've seen pretty much every decent horror film out there. I'm just about to watch now. Thanks OP.
Saw this when I was pissed, can't remember any of it. Going to have to re-watch it later now you've mentioned it. Thanks, anon.
"A Tale of Two Sisters" stuck with me. The story and soundtrack are haunting. It's a phenomenal horror film imo. That's all I'll say as to avoid spoilers, but I recommend it to everyone.
"Memories of Murder" is probably the one that stuck with me the most, but it's more a crime-thriller/serial-killer drama.
OP here, it's one of my favorite ones. Even my friend who hates horror movies as a rule said it sounded pretty cool. It's pretty feely.
I will check out those two as well. Even if a spoopy is meh I'll get through it, it takes true garbage shit (like fucking Death Tunnel) to make me turn it off halfway through.
As a side note, does anyone else here have a horror movie ritual for lack of a better word? 99% of the time I wrap up in my blankets in my room with the door shut, lights off, and a bottle of liquor. Watching a spoop without doing that now feels wrong.
I'd totally recommend Ravenous, just remember that's off-beat and kinda goofy, but deals with very heavy themes. Netflix should refresh the horror library more often, lol.
Horror comedy, and a really good one at that.
WindChill is pretty good, but it reminded me of Dead End and that one was better.
I haven't seen Dead End but the comparison to Wind Chill makes me want to see it.
I saw the Ring in theaters when I was like 10 and I remember I had nightmares about it for a straight week. I went back a watched it a couple of years ago and could not for the life of me figure out why it had scared me. I mean it is pretty unsettling, but my ten year old brain just saw something it really didn't like apparently.
Haven't seen it, but I find it an interesting concept.
They say that a lot of creative process is dug from our unconscious (post apocalypytic movie resurgence after 9/11, etc) What does a movie about the horror of a turned off television say about its creator?
Anybody here seen Deadgirl? I'm still not sure what I think of it but I can say at least it wasn't a cliche borefest like other modern horror films.
This was very good. I was genuinely surprised. I went into it not knowing what it was about at all (my favorite way to watch horror) and the way it unfolded was top-notch.
Also, points for no shitty-ass jump-scares.
THat soundtrack is too fucking loud! It spoiled the film for me in some places. And I really like Michael Nyman's stuff as a rule. Still, decent film.
Blair Witch Project will always stay with me
Kill List and A Field In England, Ben Wheatley is dope, High Rise was crap though
Also Carpenters The Thing
And Terminator, the idea of an implacable merciless killing machine after me is still something I find existentially terrifying
Haven't seen pic related will check it out, thanks OP
are you shitting me, man? the first time i saw it the first thing i thought was "the writers got stoned and/or drunk and started making necrophiliac jokes, and then suddenly decided to write them all down and make a movie". srsly
It is and it's not. Like I said, I'm not sure what I think of it, at times I was thinking "This is so fucking stupid" but I didn't want to stop watching.
I am not a fan of Blair Witch but I also generally dislike found-footage. Most of those others I haven't seen and may check out, the Thing is one of my favorites. Never really thought of Terminator as horror but the first movie does have some pretty creepy scenes and Schwarzenegger was my hero growing up.
The first Terminator is a horror film, it's a slasher sci fi movie. It's based on a nightmare James Cameron had. (Also a rip-off of a twilight zone episode)
I had to turn on the subtitles because of the volume, but it still worked for me.
It's actually about a cursed videotape that 'infects' people after they watch it. The supernatural element from the movie emerges from the televisions, but it has nothing to do with them being on or off. I totally recommend it.
The thing you said about the unconcious is why half the movies released in the 70s and 80s were subconsciously
'about' the Vietnam war (Predator, Return of the Jedi, Rambo, Aliens, etc.)
This one fucked me up. I started having nightmares and sleep paralysis again after watching it, I'm positive it triggered it.
Saw but didn't really get into it. Seemed like a juvenile badly acted soft porn movie.
Gotta say I did think the premise is interesting and worth exploring, but it was just handled in a too juvenile way in this movie for my taste.
The idea actually has the potential to provoke some decent conversation about the subtext of the story.
If you look at the basis of what a zombie is, what humans find so fascinating about them. Why we created them and what they mean to us. What they say about us. Now think about a sex slave female zombie and what THAT says about us for producing and consuming the idea.
Def 'the Gate' c.1987. Something about the synth music and the eye painted on the wall in blood. Seems stupid now. But I was like 3 when first watched it. No other movie had this effect on me. It didn't help that half the buildings in our neighborhood were abandoned.
Totally unrelated. But this song was out around the time I saw this movie. Their videos always had eyes painted sewhere. Was something about an eye being painted touched me the wrong way.
Since we're on the topic of spoops, I will say that I fucking loathe the Babadook. I had to pause it and take a break twice when I watched it because I was just so bored. A lot of people go on about me being bored because "hurr durr no jump scares" but I think jump scares are shit too, I just thought the Babadook was...bad.
Hell yes! Slither is really great, it's got a nice balance of horror with comedy, plus the effects are ace.
Videodrome. The idea that technology mutates the brain, the part about violent tv acting like a valve, fucking masterpiece.
Seems like horror movies from the 80s are just superior in quality. One of my all-time favorites is the original Hellraiser and the first sequel. I'll have to check Videodrome out.
I saw that in theaters but I barely remember anything about it except the ending. I've always grouped it in my head with Darkness Falls and Fear of the Dark, which are two others that have always stuck with me.
The Haunting of Whaley House. It's on Netflix. The movie was so fucking ridiculous but I was coming down off of Molly when I watched and the scene with this demon thing scared me so bad for some reason. I legit didn't leave my room until I knew someone else was home the next day because I kept expecting him to be in the hallway
I watched that a couple of months ago actually, my then-girlfriend and I were on Skype talking about how lame it was. I actually don't remember much of it, I was pretty drunk. I seem to recall pretty terrible acting? I dunno, it's fuzzy.
I loved this when I was a kid, still do.
The Company Of Wolves. Made me love werewolves when I saw it. Just fucking loved it. It had like 3 or 4 interlinking stories and some fucking up transformations like a werewolf basically shedding the skin of the human. I haven't seen it for 20+years and I don't know if it's held up well but it has always stayed with me.
Did a quick search of it and it sounds fun as fuck, I'll have to check it out. I have a love of 80s horror flicks, particularly with a fantasy spin. The original Troll is pretty ridiculous, but I still really enjoy it.
forgot about Troll! I loved that one too. If my head wasn't so clouded from a cold I might be able to think of some more great ones from back then but I'm basically mentally impaired right now.
I'm gonna second Darkness Falls. I fucking love the concept, and the groans the old woman makes always freaked me out. Plus, the opening scene is just great, imo. The final shot where the camera pulls back and he's hiding in the tub while the woman is outside the door, clinging to the wall was burned into my head. Not necessarily out of fear, I just loved the way it looked.
Beyond the Black Rainbow had an atmosphere and surreal quality that really reminded me of the kind of dreams I have when I'm really sick and feverish.
I hadn't heard about it/seen the trailer, but I think it's worth a look. Not in theaters, I've been disappointed by too many spoopies for the ridiculous prices of movies nowadays, but I'll be watching it eventually.
Oh, and to answer OP's question, I'll always remember the last few minutes of [REC]. It's the only thing ever put on celluloid to physically frighten me in my adult life.
I'm glad I'm not the only one. Nobody else I know even remotely enjoyed that movie when it came out, but there were some scenes that stuck with me to this day.
The part where the kid is slowly disappearing into the darkness of the CAT scan machine, being one. You can see the terror on the kid's face, but his sister and the doctors have him sort of convinced he'll be OK in the darkness. At that point, those creepy groans start drifting out of the Machine very quietly and the kid gets more and more scared, but doesn't say anything because he wants to make his sister happy. The whole scene just makes me shiver.
Also, I was 11 when the original Jeepers Creepers movie came out. The entire first act with the sewer pipe and church basement legitimately terrified me. I still love that movie.
Jeepers Creepers is a damn good movie, I saw it when I was in the 3rd grade and it fucked me up. I watched the sequel a couple of years ago and was horribly disappointed. There's supposed to be a third movie coming out at some point that focuses on the dude from the first movie's sister trying to kill the Creeper permanently.
Low-budget got me. Low-budget spoopies usually pull me in because they're campy or just absurd, it's almost endearing. I previously stated that I dislike found footage but paranormal investigation films usually catch my attention for some reason.
Saw Wind Chill thanks to your post. Thought it was pretty good. The love story element of it was pretty touching, made me give a shit about the protagonists.
IMDB had this movie rated badly. Wish it wasn't so difficult to find good movies, cause all the ones with good ratings seem bad to me.
That's a lot of why I enjoyed it. The growth of the characters/their relationship was really touching, and I think them not having established names somehow made it even more personal. Glad you enjoyed it!
I feel the same way. Some of the highest-rated horror movies, especially modern, I think are horrible. The Babadook is a prime example.
I think the third one has been in development hell for years.
Stuff like Darkness Falls always gets me. Anything that plays on fear of the dark and thongs waiting there. There was one I saw when I was a kid but u can't remember it exactly. It was called Them or They or something like that. About a whole race of creatures that live in a dark dimension and make lights go out so they can drag people away.
Good call on Wind Chill, really well made film. Maybe you'd also like Riding The Bullet because most of it takes place in a car iirc.
Too many movies in my mind, I'll mention The Innkeepers, Lake Mungo and the Crazies remake.
Also, off topic, I realized yesterday that the Martyrs remake is out but then I saw that it has a 3.7 rating on imdb. Anyone saw it?
*sigh* The Giant Gila Monster. I'm not kidding. That crappy film...I watched it with my Dad when I was probably like twelve years old or so, and then had to go to bed for school right afterwards. For some reason,that movie brought up some kind of dread in me that stuck with me that entire night. I'm not afraid of it (other than for it's terrible quality) but it's got a weird effect on me. And being a fan of all kinds of horror, I have no idea why.
Other (less embarrassing candidates) would include Close Encounters of the Third Kind. It's not really a horror movie but it has the elements and aliens freak me out.
Jurassic Park: I love the movie and dinosaurs so much, but I still have recurring dreams and nightmares involving dinosaurs to this day.
"They", Wes Craven movie. That one was top shelf creepy. The end scene scared the fuck out of me, *SPOILERS* where she's trapped in the shadow realm thing, and the guy's looking in the closet for her, but it's like a two way mirror and he can't see her screaming. Then he slowly closes the door, leaving her in darkness while the things creep up behind her. Fuck me.
Mama had a lot of potential, but went to dogshit very fast imo. The three minute YouTube clip it was based on was utterly terrifying, but the big budget version of that scene was a bit too Hollywood for me.
Can you elaborate on why you didn't like The Babadook? I found that movie quite terrifying.
I will check it out, and I'm glad you liked Wind Chill. It's an underrated gem IMO.
I really liked the Innkeepers and Lake Mungo, I have yet to see the Crazies remake but I'm interested. My best friend has recommended the original Martyrs, I have it downloaded but haven't watched it yet.
I've never even heard of it but the title sounds campy/fun. I'll have to give it a watch. I've honestly never seen Close Encounters but I've had it recommended a lot so it's due to be checked out.
Jurassic Park is a movie that holds a special place in my heart, my parents didn't want me watching it as a kid but when they left me with a family friend she showed it to me and I fell in love with it. Jurassic World was a pretty damn good film IMO as well.
I personally enjoyed Mama even though it was pretty predictable, something about the monster just unsettled me.
As for the Babadook, I just found it boring. I thought the child actor was way over-the-top, and as someone who suffers from severe depression I didn't think the mother's "symptoms" had anything to do with it, at least not from my perspective. Towards the end when the monster showed up, the stock sound effects really turned me off, and I also though the editing was pretty terrible. There were a few legitimately creepy moments though, such as when the Babadook was crawling around on the ceiling.
I'm adding Lake Mungo and Pontypool to my list, I've seen almost unanimous positive reception to both.
I loved The Others when I was younger. The scene where the little girl is telling her mom about the ghosts she's seen, and how many times she's seen them. It's two, three times each, then it gets to the old woman and she says she's seen her like fifteen times. Loved the delivery in that scene. The whole move had a really great buildup, and the ending was quite bleak.
Still the OP here, recommending a few others that you might not have seen: Clown (2014), Castle Freak (1995), and 100 Feet (2008). I remember all of them sticking out to me for different reasons.
I understand the bit about the kid. He was supposed to be annoying, but they kind of went a little overboard and took away any possible redeeming features to the point that his part in every scene was distilled down to 'and the kid is an annoying little fuck again.'
Other parts legitimately give me chills though, like when she sees the Babadook at the police station. Any part involving the book really freaked me out, too. Something about the writing and tone of that thing really got to me.
I think I remember those bits. I generally don't give up on horror flicks, but damn if that film didn't just bore me to tears. I'm sure horror films I love bore others, though, everyone has different tastes.
It's a super old low budget movie about...well a giant gila monster. My Dad loved it but it's TERRRRIBLE. But for some reason it freaked me out and kinda sticks with.
Close Encounters is a great movie, IMO. It's entertaining and just a little creepy. JP, I saw when I was 8 and I've loved it ever since.
OH yeah, and I forgot to add the original adaptation of "The Colour out of Space" by H.P. Lovecraft. When I was young I saw that and it messed me with me sort of how the Gila Monster movie did. Weird since I love all of Lovecraft's literary horror.
pic related for godlike found footage
It's a very slow burn, but it's great at creating tension and it has an amazing plot. There's lots of shit going on that seems random but every little thing connects at the end, it took me two viewings to really get it all.
One scene in the original version of Shutter freaked me out (I think it's a Korean movie?). Where the main character is climbing up a ladder to get away from the standard creepy Asian ghost girl. He hears a noise above him, stops, slowly looks up, and ghost girl is climbing down the ladder towards him, but upside down so they're face to face.
Other than that, generic early/mid 2000s Asian ghost girl spooker. Not worth it.
Not the anon you're replying to but I didn't enjoy The Babadook because it didn't feel like a horror movie. It was a family drama with a few jump scares and a little bit of mounting dread.
I'm personally against horror movies trying to make their characters believable and relatable. If the characters are bland they're like blank slates, it's easier to project onto them and get closer to the horror of the film.
Complex characters distract from the horror. Any sympathy or care I'm feeling for them because of their damaged family bond or whatever is emotional investment that lessens my feeling of fear.
I suggest Cult (Karuto), from the same director.
Also by the Noroi guy but nowhere near as good. That said, I still enjoyed it a lot.
Saw this the other day and really liked it. Some complain about the ending but thats because it could have a couple interpretations I think.
Overhyped but still good. I only saw it this year and thought it was pretty neat.
>V/H/S 1 and 2
Its an anthology series so its a mix of good and bad. Overall very enjoyable.
Great one that was mentioned in this thread.
>Rec 1 and 2
First one is great and second one is very good imho
Not really horror but I highly recommend this. It's really funny.
Kinda goofy but I really liked it. They made a sequel which was just OK.
Like others said, really good.
>The Last Exorcism
Silly but worth a watch imo
>Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon
Quirky half-comedy half-horror. Not really scary but its a lot of fun. Ton of horror cliches.
It was OK. It follows the Jonestowns stuff a bit too much to be scary.
Fun action movie.
I saved this from other thread, thank you found footage-fag.
Ugh I went to see "The Pulse" in theaters and couldn't stand it. I think it's a remake of Asian horror but all the cool parts of the trailer made things fairly boring in the actual movie. I was let down.
Asian ghost girls alone are creepy anon.
The American version of The Grudge is actually a memorable one for me. The face of that girl coupled with the sound she makes paralysed me with fear when I first watched it as a kid.
Speaking of, the first time I saw the first Ju-On movie, I was 9. When the girl is hiding in her bed, lifts up her covers and ghost chick is RIGHT THERE - that fucked me up quite a bit.
I thought The Grudge was a pretty good remake, but they left out a few little scenes that I found fucking creepy.
Such as, the girl who gets chased from the office by the ghost. At one point, she's watching the security cameras, and sees the shadowy figure come out of the door, walk down the hall towards the camera and disappear. Then the screen slowly turns to black as the figure's head appears from below the camera, and it's fucking eyes open, staring right at you. (pic related, screen shot of the scene)
They cut that scene short in the American version, and it really pissed me off.
Fuck you, England. This movie spooked me hard as a kid.
I watched Grave Encounters by myself while high as fuck, and absolutely loved it. Watched it a second time with a buddy, and the charm was completely gone. It seems it was a one time thing for me.
The part where they bust open the front door and it's just another hallway really threw me for a loop the first time I saw it, though.
28 Days Later did that for me, even though the ending isn't nearly as bleak as Dawn of the Dead. The zombies in 28 Days really set the tone for pretty much every zombie movie to come.
I'll have to check out Wind Chill, I've liked Emily Blunt since Edge of Tomorrow.
I saw a poster for EoT with just the actors last names on it, so now 'Blunt Cruise' is a running joke. The working title of that movie was so much better - "All You Need Is Kill"
Saw this movie when I was like 14 and always thought it was real until years later found out it was fake. Was the first real scary movie I saw and was hooked on to scary movies.
Couldn't agree more. I was nine when it came out, a buddy snuck a copy to my place and a bunch of us watched it on my tenth birthday. My parent's house is ten minutes out of town and surrounded by woods that look EXACTLY like where they get lost in the movie, and we camped out a lot in them, so it scared the absolute shit out of us.
Honestly love that movie, still the best found footage film ever made, imo. Also the most effective viral marketing campaign I've seen (being nine/ten definitely helped it seem more real).
I was a preteen when I watched this damn movie. It scarred me. I couldn't sleep at night for months; I had to have my door open all the time, and god forbid if I looked into my closet when my room light wasn't on.
I was legitimately terrified of the noise the grudge made -- I always thought I could hear it late at night.
I just recently saw that movie Creep on Netflix, really unsettled me, despite being cheesy. I have a family member exactly like the guy in it, which probably amplified the spoop factor by a lot.
This movie gives me nightmares every time.
Bipedal werewolves = shit the bed scurred
Absentia is one that stuck with me recently. It does a good job of portraying someone who's trying to come to terms with a spouses unexplained disappearance, and what that must be like. Then it gets into the creepier stuff. It's not without flaws, but a lot of the most effective horror films usually aren't, IMO.
Even though it is more of a thriller, I highly recommend it.
Dantes Peak, man. That hot spring scared the shit out of me as a kid. I took cold showers for a while after that, instead of hot ones. That way I would know when it was happening just in case we secretly lived near a volcano.
Haven't seen The Descent mentioned yet - got to be one of the scariest films I've ever seen. A team of female cavers get trapped, and things go to hell. Absolutely fucking terrifying.
A couple of segments of V/H/S/ 2 stand out: the 'camera eye' and the Indonesian (?) cult.
>"The Evil Dead"
>"0 of 0"
The remake is good. Damn good. Give it a watch.
fuck yeah, just watched this based off this recommendation
very good, very original idea that was a great watch. definitely low budg with ok-tier actors but pulled off something really out of the ordinary with those components.
I passed out last night and forgot about this thread. Lots of good recommendations that I will be writing down and checking out later.
Anyone seen Neverlake? I really enjoyed that movie although I might just be nostalgic because I watched it with my now ex girlfriend back in November.
Really recommend Kill List.
Yeah, I just find it a shame 'cause it's a good film. Still can't figure out why the blonde guy wants to kill Guy Pearce's character, though-I heard there was an deleted scene that explains it?
Can't remember much about it.
Oh I see Banshee Chapter recommended in these threads a lot, it's found footage but I really like it.
lol theres like 1 MAYBE 2 good horror movies that come out a year, REC is def one of them.
Cant wait to watch The Witch when it comes out in a week or so
I literally fell asleep during this movie in the theater. That's happened to me twice, other time was Out OF Africa when I was a kid. That movie was worse than this one, but still...darkness sucked
A Tale of Two Sisters is fantastic. Korean horror films are my favourite East Asian horrors. They tend to be a damn near perfect mixture of Japanese psychological thriller, and Chinese slasher/gore.
Not Korean, but have you seen Audition? Pretty fucked up, I recommend it.
I have never seen Jacob's Ladder. I know what it is and about all the fucked up stop-motion shit but I've never watched it and I probably need to.
Audition is the "kiri kiri kiri" film, right? I've seen that one, if so. It's been a while, though. Dream Home is another good one. It's a Chinese slasher film, so it's not exactly scary, but I remember being really fucking impressed by the actual gore portions. It's not your standard Western "stab people until they die" kind of killing.
While this movie isn't spooky in a traditional sense of jump scares or shit in the closet that wants to eat you, "the signal" is an amazing thinker with tons and tons og mystery and intrigue.. I like to think I can usually nail a plot about 20minites in but anons this movie will keep u guessing all he way through.
I watched it a good 6 times and still come away with a new thought each time
IT fucked me up bad when I was younger, still unsettles me. Tim Curry is a fantastic actor.
I never saw Nightmare on Elm Street as a kid, I was about 14 when I first watched it, so it never really scared me all that bad, I just remember it being fun and campy as fuck. The music is pretty fucking disturbing though.
Ctrl+F didn't find it - has anyone mentioned Frailty? Great horror/suspense movie starring Bill Paxton as a soldier of God working to kill demons.
I watched Freddy aged around 12-13 and didn't notice the campy comedy aspect of the film. It genuinely scared the fuck outta me at the time.
"IT" made me literally piss my pants. Not because of fright while watching, but because I refused to go to the toilet alone until my Dad got home. I wouldn't even get off the bed to switch the light on incase IT was under the fucking bed. I was terrified. When Dad got home I ran to the toilet but semi-pissed my pants on the way there.
I watched IT again a few months ago to see if it still had an effect but the magic had gone. Sadly.
... And yes, Tim Curry is a terrific actor. I recently re-watched "Clue", "Rocky Horror", as well as "IT", and desu he stole the show in all 3.
Pennywise was horrific, thanks to Tim Curry.
I love Bill Paxton and I've always found that premise fun. Just watched Constantine a few weeks ago for the first time since it came out and I still enjoyed it.
I've heard rumors of It and Clue remakes for a while, but hopefully they never come to fruition as I doubt either would feature Tim Curry again, meaning the entire point to the movies existing would be gone.
I read IT before I saw the movie.
The book was so powerful and moving, and a few months after I read it I rented the movie adaption and went into it with extremely high expectation.
Needless to say, I was extremely disappointed.
Tim Curry made an excellent Pennywise, but apart from him it just seemed like garbage.
I'd really like to see a remake that's more true to the book.
Thai. Shutter is Thai.
Shutter is thai.
Jesus, people keep thinking korea. Why not japan?
Why do people know the ring is Japanese?
The eye is from hong kong by the way.
I saw this movie high expecting a visual trippy movie, had no idea about the horror aspects of it. Holy shit was I in for an intense ride
A remake of IT is being made with pic related (yes that's the kid from Maze-Runner) as Pennywise. Apparently it's going to be a watered-down self-righteous teen shit-fest consisting of 2 films, a part 1 and 2, directed by the guy who did Mama..
The original director/writer quit because the execs wanted to wipe out any in-depth character studies or story-archs and make it some superficial made-for-teens hacker horror. Apparently King liked the original script, a new script is being written by the mama dude.
It doesn't looks good guys...
So I just finished watching A Tale of Two Sisters. It was a bit drawn out at points and kinda confusing but I guess it was okay. The outfits were nice. Was Su-yeon mentally challenged? It seemed like it. It had a really nice soundtrack too.
...God fucking damn it. This is why 90% of modern horror is shit. They've even started to infect the classics. I haven't been as pissed as I was when I watched the Hellraiser remake in a long time.
>Total Recall and Robocop remakes
fucking jokes. they could made them awesome with todays CGI and 80s story lines.. but nope.. just compare the blood and gore and language in the original robocops and then this new boring shit... CEOs are such retards, they ruin all movies just to get pg12
It indeed happened, it's from 2011 and holy fuck is it a piece of goddamn shit. It's a loose remake of the first film with shit acting and an absolutely HORRIBLE version of Pinhead (not Doug Bradley)
Clive Barker was indeed pissed. Bradley felt snubbed too. The piece of trash masquerading as a film was tagged as coming "from the mind of Clive Barker" and he tweeted: "I want to put on record that the flic [sic] out there using the word Hellraiser IS NO FUCKIN' CHILD OF MINE! I have NOTHING to do with the fuckin' thing. If they claim its from the mind of Clive Barker, it's a lie. It's not even from my butt-hole."
I forgot all about this one. Pretty unremarkable IMHO. Just another saturday night movie watched with parents. Thx for the gif. Only thing I remember about it is that scene. I remember my dad getting mad because it made me laugh
The ads that played on tv for this movie fucked me up when I was younger.
One of my faves
I second this, great movie.
Banshee Chapter is total /x/ material.
It is only scary for people under 12, unless you have crippling coulrophobia. I love the book, but the movie is just a guilty pleasure.
The problem isn't in remaking movies, it's in remaking them with style.
It's not technically a remake, it was a one-off 'reboot' filmed in a couple of days, made for the same reason as the 90s Fantastic Four, so the studio didn't lose the rights to the intellectual property.
I won't go into details since my gf might be lurking in this board tonight, but I don't judge ya.
Again recommending Kairo. Hell, recommending the entire works of Kiyoshi Kurosawa. Fucking watch this shit.
Berberian Sound Studio is the best horror movie to come out this decade. It needs more love. The movie is like being in a fever dream, and it has some of te best sound work I've heard in awhile, as it should considering the subject matter of the movie.
Do you mean The Signal which has Larry Fishbourne in it? I fucking love that film. Scary in places but more sci-fi than horror, maybe? Or do you mean The Signal which is about a cell phone signal that turns people into zommers? Haven't seen that but a mate tells me it's breddy cool.
Streaming some horror movies tonight.
Starting with The Poughkeepsie Tapes followed by Lake Mungo, then if there's time, The Atticus Institute.
To chat, you must make an account, but the site lets you enter fake emails.
not exactly horror but fuck me if this wasn't worth the watch
The Vanishing (1988) for sure.
Not sure why, but as much as it affected me after it was over; the day AFTER while at work was when it really started to screw with me and had me thinking about it practically all day.
I guess you could say that it follows you home
Just watched Lake Mungo and it's a fucking pointless movie. Lets run it down
>Opens with girl going missing at lake
>Find body in lake week later

>Nothing happens but the next day the review the tape and see ghost girl hanging out in the corner
>The mother wants to get the body of her daughter exhumed to see if maybe the father didn't ID the right body
>Dig her up, DNA test the body its the daughter
>One thing leads to another at this point and it turns out the brother faked all the ghost footage and the writers of this bullshit forgot they had the father say he met the ghost already and the boy couldn't have faked that
>Everyone is kinda bent at the boy but forgive him, he ends up going on a field trip with the medium from the seance to help him clear his mind or whatever

>Cut to police saying they can't find the neighbor and probably never will
>Family sends the medium packing because he didn't tell the family she new the daughter from before
>Mother says some dumb shit like "Our daughter just wanted us to know who she was" even though at this point everyone thinks the ghost was the the son fucking with the film and the only thing the daughter did was a three way

for real why does it make them happy and reviled?
>Shows the family getting ready to move out the house
>Then shows a recording from one of the daughters sessions with the medium
>She is talking about her dreams
>She is narrating over the mother as she moves out the last of her stuff out of the house
>It's implying her dreams where of the future
>Goes to credits but brings up photos the boy took, so in the fake ones it would show the fake daughter then pan to a real ghost in the corner
>Does this for 5 or so photos
Did I miss something in this movie? This shit sucked ass hard. Best part was the 3way shot and see some c grade actresses flat ass. /x/ has shit taste in movies
"Goodnight mommy" was pretty cool. It's not a masterpiece or anything, but I'd say it's rather a good movie.
is pic related any good?
don't know if they've been mentioned, but I kinda liked The Serpent and The Rainbow and Society (dat shunting scene)
nice, I'll definitely watch it now, thanks
I'll also add Polanski's Repulsion, Seconds with Rock Hudson (not a horror really) and The Innocents as some old spoopy movies that stayed with me
I passed the fuck out halfway through the movie, I was tired as shit so I barely remember anything. I do remember the 3 way though.
I watched Goodnight Mommy back in October. I remember when it first came out /x/ was hyping it up about being a skinwalker and that's not even close to what it's about, still a decent film though.
Childs play fucked me up for a while. When I saw it i was like 10 years old so when i saw anything that remotely resembled a good guy doll i would avoid it at all costs. But now i love it, my favorite horror movie about a possessed toy.
Friday the 13th stuck with me as well. Idk why but it became my favorite slasher series.
I've seen the original Child's Play and that was like 2 years ago so it just made me laugh, although the burned doll was pretty fucking chilling. I saw Friday the 13th when I was about 13 and thought it was fun, I still have yet to see the whole series.
Human Centipede 3 is itself on steroids. You might like it, because it makes fun of itself, its over the top, and actually really funny. Mostly cuz Dieter Laser is fucking top notch in that role. Tom Six knows exactly what hes done and he ended the trilogy in the best way possible.
Watch the first two first of course - both actors from each movie reappear in the third as the main duo, and it was really fantastic.
So glad I'm not the only one who liked Darkness falls. I saw it when I was a kid, I had gotten over my fear of the dark and that opening scene kicked it right back into overdrive.
Also that flaming punch will never not be badass.
After hearing such good things about this one, I have to give it a solid meh. Great sound work (get it), great atmosphere, but it just lacked substance.
I dunno, after hearing anons rave about this, I was expecting more than watching a sad little Quasimodo get bullied around a sound studio for an hour and a half
There was a reason that The Descent was better than the sequel. After Sarah lost her son, and husband, you can see Sarah popping anti-psychotics throughout the film. If memory serves correctly, she woke up from a nightmare and took a few pills early when they just arrived at the cabin with the other members of the cast.
Once she got stuck in the cave, she went overboard and started "imagining" the crawlers. Even the ending of the movie was edited depending on which version of the movie you've seen. Here's a link to what I mean.
It's a good read if you feel like learning more about the movie.
At this point I really just want to stop watching his movie adaptions. The only tolerable ones were The Mist and Carrie.
I definitely won't go anywhere near The Dark Tower movies.
Not that anon, but Uzumaki is pretty decent, well if you don't mind the crappy acting of course. The movie covers the manga pretty good, the spiral dad, jack in the box, spiral hair, etc. Though you won't find the same ending as the manga, i guess because it was released before the manga's finished.
Give it a try.
For the life of me I can't remember what this one called, I was about 10 at the time. It was a zombie movie and all I can remember is kids on dirtbikes, a rat biting a homeless man outside of some kind of medical facility, and a zombie biting a kid's scalp off inside a vent or something. I don't remember this being particularly scary, but it just stuck with me.
Another one (also can't remember what its called) I watched years later on Netflix. It was another zombie flick and I remember a radio station guy getting stabbed after turning into a zombie and one of the zombies being friendly and helping his human friends escape to a military facility.
Also another one that's about ghosts and shit where the ghost was haunting a house but it was about a priest that tortured and raped people in his attic. It was a documentary and I remember the narrator hitting a wall with a tennis ball.
Help me guys, I'd love to see these movies again.
>Prepare for incoming shitstorm.
Babadook and It Follows have to be two of the most highly contested movies of late. I actually loved It Follows on first watch. Then I saw it again at a friends place and it was utter garbage. I've never changed my opinion on a horror so quickly. Babadook was garbage from the get-go.
I feel like i recognize the second one you're talking about, but I can't for the life of me figure it out.
I guess I just watch way too many horror movies and they all start to muddle together into one big mess.
I would kill to watch any of these movies again. The first one had to be around 2004 ish because I rented it from Hollywood video lol. The second one had to be around 2011 because it was on Netflix. Same goes for the last one, watched right after. I don't remember any of them being that good, but I would love to see them again for the nostalgia.
I've only seen It Follows once, so maybe my opinion will change if I view it again. I remember it being really eerie at certain points. I'm glad we agree about the Badonkadook.
I enjoyed Jessabelle. I don't remember a whole lot about it because it's been like a year since I've seen it but I remember it being pretty suspenseful. I associate it with Lovely Molly for some reason which I also liked.
I've got several movies that I've forgotten over the years as well, but none of those sound familiar to me. If you remember them or you find them, let us know!
this nigger knows what he's talking about
Hey guys. Stannis here. Running a bit late at work. Still plan on doing the Apocalypse Trilogy tonight. I should be home in like half an hour. I'll make a proper thread for the stream when I'm home an ready.
The Shining messed me up when I was a kid. Those girls still creep me out.
Dude , i found this movie fucking hilarious, we gave our anorexic friend shit and said the moster at the end was him and that he raped a chick he liked , he was already depressed enough but we still said it , all he did was cry for a couple of weeks.
These are some movies that I felt were scary in some way
The exorcist (1-3) creepy concept
Amityville horror movies
Pet cemetary (creepy concept)
Original Texas chainsaw massacre
People under the stairs
The butterfly effect
Drag me to hell
Dusk till dawn
Return of the Living Dead 3 was a movie I'd catch on Sci-Fi when I was a kid, and I have no doubt this movie did a hell of a lot of sexual imprinting on my young boy brain.
It's a Yuzna film, which means it's automatically gonna have some sweet gore, but I've always been impressed with how well they were able to sell me on the love story angle. Plus, that Julie chick is probably my all-time favorite scream queen.
I loved this film when I was young, watched it so so many times. It was on TV recently and yeah, I found that bathroom shot really cool too. Some of it seemed a bit more action-packed than I remembered, but I was only half-watching it.
Another one I remember watching multiple times was The Mist, it came out some time in the 2000s. It wasn't particularly good or anything but the visuals and gut-punch ending stuck with me.
Ugh nah I hated The Last Exorcism. I lost it at how it was trying to be a very real scary found footage film but kept layering a spooky soundtrack over the scenes. At least something like Noroi justifies it because its meant to be a documentary.
Besides that it just seemed like a very bog-standard cliché film to me, idk.
Anyone else have really surreal memories of some movies, like scenes that aren't there when you watch it these days?
I have a huge number of weird memories of The Lost World: Jurassic Park. Like, not Berenstain Bears, Nelson Mandela type shit, just weird things, like I always remember a scene where a raptor gets beheaded, and I remember some kind of gay subtext between Ian Malcolm and Vince Vaughn's character.
Not a film, but I used to watch Masters of Horror and the one episode has stuck with me ever since is "Dreams in the Witch House". I'm not even sure why, but even though I'd watched a shit-ton of horror even at that age it really got to me.
Return of the Living Dead: Necropolis (2005)
Day of the Dead (2008) (remake of the 1985 Romero original)
...Couldn't find anything. Too vague. Need more details. It's a documentary, or a horror done in documentary style?
Here's a list of fallen priest movies:
Yes yes yes! Thank you based anon, the first two are exactly the movies I was talking about. And as for the last one, I don't remember much about the plot but I remember the priest had a torture room where he put women in a chamber and raped them. It was a documentary style movie, the scenes where the priest raped and killed were flashbacks but the documentary part of it was at the house and there's violent ghosts and shit.
Guh, I don't know, man. Been searching on and off for the last couple hours. My Googlefu and Wiki-tiki-ti strong, but only so strong. You say documentary, but it could be a movie, a TV movie, or an episode for some documentary-reenactment paranormal show, like A Haunting or My Ghost Story. How old was it? Was it recent? Did it have a 90s/early 2000s feel?
My list of favorites that actually creeped me out when I saw it:
The Devil's Backbone
The Sixth Sense
Bone Tomahawk (Western/Horror)
Tetsuo The Iron Man
Texas Chainsaw Massacre (original)
Invasion of the Body Snatchers (70s remake)
The Mist (cheesy at times but I like it)
Silent Hill (kinda bad too but still like it)
I really liked the taking of Deborah Logan.
It was nice to stray away from the too typical exorcism satanism route, I liked the actual story focus, and there were some good spook scenes.
It Follows, in the end, was enjoyable. I haven't rewatched it yet, but I think it was solid.
Babadook was... interesting, but has way more problems then people want to admit.
Might be controversial, but I think It Follows is the better film of the two.
The Exorcist worked as a horror film for me when I was a believer in god and demons--after I became an atheist, it still works for me as a film about a child who has been sexually abused (By Burke Dennings). Great film either way.
