Not sure what the other anons are talking about, a horror film thread sounds delightful.

I recommend The Void. It's not particularly "scary" (at least not to me because body horror doesn't freak me out) but it is a great monster film that takes homage from classic body horror and practical effect films from the 80's/90's.

No. 100560

I'm glad you enjoyed it! Practical effects really make the movie (or ruin it, like the huge quality differences with Hellraiser 1 and 2.)

Have you seen Stories To Tell In The Dark? I only watched it because I loved the books as a kid but the first/middle half were actually pretty scary, and the fact that main characters actually died was jarring and they really stayed true to the stories! (just stop before the ending, it was horrible.)

Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003) still gives me anxiety when I watch it. (The original was good too.)

I think it's more the concept that scares me. A chainsaw as a weapon would be pretty brutal, and the guy can handle it while still having speed which is a big thing. Then on top of all of that he's wearing somebody else's face? Fuck that.

Hereditary was pretty good. It was disturbing and unnerving, but not jumpscare scary. The actors, their reactions and characters actions were realistic which only fueled the scariness. But I'd say you have to watch it twice to fully understand what was going on in some parts, but it was a nice experience to see all thise scenes with a new understanding.

If you don't mind watching a series, JU-ON Origins was good. There was a constant unnerving atmosphere, especially if you're familiar with the movies. Though there are some really dumb writing choices and at least one really bad special effect.

I love Lake Mungo, but I have to admit the pacing was a little slow for me and I dozed off after a while. I woke up to THAT scene playing and I legit thought I was going to die from a fucking heart attack in my bed lmao. I really enjoyed that while the plot twist in the movie is supernatural, the conclusion of the movie is very human - the fact that life inevitably goes on after the death of a loved one, and the dead will be eventually forgotten. The atmosphere was also very unique, it is more sombre-scary than shocking scary

>Why is it that horror as a genre isn't taken as seriously?
I've been thinking about this too lately. I think for a long time horror films followed the predictable formula of 'dumb horny teenagers wander into a big dark house then get killed one-by-one by axe dude' (slasher films from the 70s started this trend and it was a thing for quite a while) and people today still associate them with silly gory predictable fun, even though the genre since has expanded and changed quite a bit

No. 100691

I think because the general public isn't as prone to being scared anymore. Now that we're connected and true horror is passed along in the news and conversation we aren't as easily scared anymore. Less people believe in organized religion so supernatural stuff isn't taken as seriously, studios for a while weren't keen on taking a financial risk on a niche genres, many many reasons. Thankfully horror fans are starting to take the reigns and create more relevant movies to people's actual fears and we're starting to get some really good stuff again.

horror in my opinion, has both the best and the worst movies of all time within it's genre. i personally think critics are too harsh on certain horror pieces, but i think the lack of respect given to horror is a product of the early to late 2000's where horror movies were being released left and right, whereas their quality was consistently poor. think when a stranger calls, one missed call, pulse, cabin fever, mirrors, etc. when a genre is saturated with subpar directors, recycled scripts and shitty americanized remakes, it is bound to suffer. it's unfortunate that it has a shitty reputation, but in most film circles, people understand it's an amazing genre that has both good and bad, just like any other.

so i watched this movie cause of your recommendation and i didn't like it. the acting was stiff and reminded me of oblivion npc dialogue lines. the visuals were really pretentious and cringy solely because they looked like a first year film student's handiwork. i was rolling my eyes every time the stupid balloons and smoke kept popping up, and the guy's little nursery rhyme he made up was read aloud. the last 5 minutes of the movie were the only glimpse of decent narrative quality. I guess because it literally feeds the entire plot directly through dialogue instead of monotonously building up a semblance of a story with edgy motifs and the MC's autistic movements. It could've worked better as a short film though. I was very disappointed with the quality of the puppet too kek

Ironically i found a way better movie thanks to the Possum's wiki page.
Magic(1978) was on the see also tab so i decided to track it down and it was worth it. Superior terrifying puppet movie but the romance plot is horrendously misogynistic/creepy and i suppose it was an unintended horror aspect that made it extra eerie.

I love horror in general and think it's a genre that the only one that can be the most reflective of the human experience.

Came here just to say FUCK Hereditary.

The first 20 minutes of this film legitimately traumatized me. That scene with the daughter…you probably know what I mean if you've seen it. I've never had such a visceral reaction to a horror film before, and I've watched quite a few that are known to be very disturbing/violent and got through them without much trouble. My bf and I actually had to turn it off because I was having a borderline panic attack, crying, hyperventilating, etc. The rest of it wasn't so bad.

I honestly don't know what it was about that one scene that fucked with me so bad, but I still get an unsettling feeling in my gut thinking about it to this day.

No. 107183

Same anon, same. I saw it in a movie theater and I legit thought about just up and leaving because it was making me feel so many negative emotions. Like no movie has ever made me feel so destroyed as Hereditary. I find horror/gorey movies fun but there was no fun to be had in that scene.
The rest of the movie kinda sucked in my opinion though.

No. 107184

Yeah I mean, I'll give it credit for being one of the first horror movies to genuinely terrify me, but it did such a good job that the whole experience was actually excruciating and I was just waiting for it to be over after that scene. It's like, I like spicy foods, but after a certain level, it's too much to enjoy the experience anymore and you're just left in a state of abject agony and misery. I don't think I'll ever watch anything directed by Ari Aster again. The feeling of hopelessness/helplessness Hereditary evoked within me was kind of similar to how I felt watching Nymphomaniac and Antichrist by Lars von Trier, neither of which are bad movies, per se, but the feelings these directors purposefully stir up within you are so awful it's like a form of sadism. I genuinely don't get what the point of it all is. Who would intentionally watch a film just to feel 10x worse about everything when it's over?

6 years ago when I was barely adult it really shook me, the "demon" always following you and never stopping and slowly catching up was driving me crazy with anxiety.

No. 107394

I think it takes a certain type of people. Asian people tend to be spiritual, growing up you just hear a lot of casual talks about spirits, your family regularly make ritualistic offerings to big gods small gods and ancestors and shit. So ghost/paranormal stories tend to feel like a common close to home thing, not something extraordinary. Asian horror themes deal a lot with broken bonds, broken dreams, repressed grief and resentment and missed opportunities. Troubles that permeate our societies that we don’t talk about, the true horrors really.

No. 107398

I'm not the >>107347 anon and you're definitely right with the type of scare japanese horror is going for being very specific because of cultural differences, but something that was tough to me to get past is a very theatrical way of acting in japanese movies, just feels like too much to be believeable and spoils the immersion. I've only seen the classics like Ring, Grunge and Dark Water and didn't explore more. Maybe theres a title you could recommend that would change my mind? Overall the spiritual themes are up my alley, it was never an issue of a subject matter in my case.

Man I have been dying for a good horror movie and scraping the depths of the internet searching for something that will work for me. Been coming up empty handed. The Possum sounds and looks intriguing, so I'll check that out.

Recently I watched The Platform (Spanish). It was fine. There were some okay visuals, but I wasn't scared and just felt a bit bored throughout. I wasn't bothered by the super blatant themes and message, honestly I think that can work well sometimes, it's just that the framing got dull quickly outside of that.

I've liked The Descent (fun), Hereditary (mainly the first half, 2nd section was generic monster movie imo), Midsommar (didn't feel very horrific, but entertaining), The Thing (again, not scary but fun), Annihilation (bear scene was unique, decent body horror, cool and thoughtful story) and The Babadook (the most spooky to me, because I felt it merged the real horrors of depression with the fake creature quite well).

Have heard good things about The VVitch but while I think I'll enjoy it as a psychological thriller, I'm almost certain it won't stick with me. Oh, and I do need to watch Jacob's Ladder. I think video games have actually been the most effective horror media for me, and I love the really surreal, dark and uncomfortable vibe of the Silent Hill games (JL was an inspiration for the series).

Sorry for the blog posting, mostly just ranting in case any of my thoughts/suggestions are helpful to other horror fans (or people who want to get into horror but are having issues like me). If anyone has ideas I'm happy to hear them. I seem to be most into horror that's not just generic monster thrills, but really tries to touch on uncomfortable human issues. The equally unsuccessful flipside (for me) are movies wholly concerned with real world discomfort and neglect the fantastical elements horror can effectively tap into.

Here are a few of my favourites I have seen this year -

Maniac (2012) - it's a bit goofy and weird, and I feel like the ending was a bit meh, but I had fun watching it. Give the original a watch too!

Terrifier - If you like slashers, clowns or b-movies, you will probably enjoy this one. It feels very campy but there are some scenes in it that made my eyes water, which I haven't experienced with a horror movie in years. Probably my favourite of the movies I've seen this year!

Overlord - Another boring Nazi zombie movie, except I didn't find it boring in the least. It felt like if Wolfenstein had been made into a film. Jam packed full of action. cheesy lines and loads of zombies!

From Beyond - A classic campy horror from the 80s starring Jeffrey Coombs (Re-Animator, which is also worth a watch). It's quite sci-fi heavy with a good dose of body horror. Really good fun to watch and full of pretty cool practical make up effects if you're into that sort of thing.

Bone Tomahawk - A western horror, which sounds dumb, but trust me, it's so worth the watch. Very atmospheric and the pay off is worth it. Probably one of the only movies to 'scare' me and leave me thinking about it for a little while afterwards.

No. 108093

I am back, and I have watched Possum. Overall I enjoyed it. Attractive cinematography. Excellent and subtle acting from the leads. Very creepy and unsettling creature design.

My main complaint is that the latter half of the movie got a touch repetitive. I wasn't bored, but after thinking on it, I wish they had utilized that time to further explore the main character's psyche and/or past and done more with the creature, rather than just tying back into material they'd already covered. The main character is very intriguing but we only get hints of what he's faced. I don't need it all spelled out for me, but I would've loved to see more of how he internally built himself up to face his fears. The last 30 minutes or so are very intense and well done, but I wish they'd created more tension before that point.

I'd rate it ~7/10. Still good and worth watching. I do think it has similarities in tone to The Babadook, but overall it's slower, more intimate and not as concerned with featuring its creature (which is fine in some respects, a shame in others).

No. 108112

I saw Autopsy of Jane Doe after smoking a joint and it was extremely unnerving, I went in blind. The climax was good but the best part was in the autopsy. The atmosphere was so on point. Holy shit, I felt like passing out from clenching my butthole. Also I can’t stop thinking about how there are people who would be turned on by this.

I love this thread, so many great recommendations. Thank you ladies. Thought I'd drop some asian horror movie recommendations since I used to watch a ton.

One missed call by Takashi Miike. My favourite director. So good in a campy, fun sort of way. The american remake sucks ass.

Marebito. Not that scary but atmospheric and creepy. Really cute female lead.

All six of the J-horror theater films: Reincarnation, Premonition, Infection, Retribution, The Sylvian experiments and Kaidan. Reincarnation and Infection are my favorites. The films are unrelated to each other so you can watch them in any order.

Confessions. Not really horror, I guess? But extremely dark and depressing anyway. Deals with really heavy topics and has a really oppressive atmosphere and plenty of shocking scenes. One of my all time favorites, highly recommended!

i ended up watching murder death koreatown (2020) after trying/failing to watch a few other supposedly scary movies beforehand and i'm so happy that THIS is the one i stuck with.

i'm not sure what it was about it that was so genuinely unsettling, but i ended up having to turn on the lights just to get through a good chunk of it and immediately rushed to switch to a comfort movie afterward just to try and get rid of the sense of legit dread i felt at the end. doing either of those things is super rare for me bc ( not to sound super fucking edgy ) most horror movies nowadays don't scare me anymore let alone make me feel something so weirdly visceral like this did.

tl;dr very good, very spooky. 10/10 def recommend giving it a try if you've got amazon prime!

What was spooky about this movie for you? Tbh it just felt like I was watching something made by a schizophrenic person, rather something by someone with real suspicions.

Saw totally is a psychological horror though, maybe even thriller more so. Only in the later installments it turned into torture porn, since people clearly cared more about the traps than the psychological aspect of it. Too bad because it makes people forget how good Saw 1 was.
Human Centipede 1 is a body horror but also a total parody imho, idk why some people were so serious about it, it was ridiculous to the point of being funny. But, given audience reaction similarly to Saw, later movies just focused on body horror / being disgusting, no attempts at being funny anymore.

No. 109494

I really do often forget how good Saw 1 was because my brain is tainted by the latter movies. Unfortunately unenjoyable torture porn sticks in my brain more.

>That drive and ambition to get back to work was a key component for Mazzei and Goldhaber, who looked to movies like Black Swan, Whiplash, and even Rocky as inspiration — As Goldhaber said, films about “a passionate artist who will stop at nothing to do their craft.” And just like the artists in those films, who return to their passions despite all the costs and suffering for their art, Alice goes back in the end. Mazzei explained, “That’s exactly what Alice does.

I'm going to add Possession (1981) by Andrzej Żuławski. Beautiful and troubling supernatural horror that falls within the "women in love with monsters" genre. An absolutely mesmerizing performance by Isabelle Adjani.

Was interested, now maybe not. All I'm finding are articles gushing about how Żuławski is a "women's director" whatever the fuck that means and that Adjani needed years of therapy to get over the role. Is there any info on what actually happened? Hitchcock-esque abuse like what happened to Tippi?

oh my God, it's a rabbit hole. Wjen writing the comment, I was roughly aware that this guy was a shitstain. Literally every relationshiphe was in was abisive and he loved dating barely adult (18 years old) actresses. He also constantly wrote shit about his exes in thinly veiled novels (he even lost a lawsuit once for that reason). I'm shocked there is zero information in English language internet since it's been a common knowledge in Poland for years. You will have to forgive me for providing google translated links since I am too lazy to do it myself properly. I think you should be able to understand from the automatic translation.


Here's an interesting bit about his relationship with Sophie Marceau that should give you a rough idea:

>Sophie Marceau

>Sophie Marceau was Andrzej Żuławski's greatest love. They got together in 1985, when the pretty French woman was only 18 and Żuławski 44. Their marriage caused a scandal in France, they were compared to Galatea and Pygmalion - he was a master and she was his apprentice. The director educated and developed the taste of the young actress. In those days, Sophie defended Andrzej against criticism, said that she would not be the same woman if it were not for his influence. The director reportedly had a hard time breaking up with Marceau. About the relationship with her, he said:
"I met a very young person and there was a great life exchange for knowledge. The process of civilizing a young girl who is from the proletariat. And it was wonderful, didactic, beautiful. And it lasted 17 years. And then there was a moment where Sophie had to say her "I". Please note that I do not live among normal, good-natured eaters. My world is a mad world. My world is the world of Romek Polański. Here, no marriage lasts longer than two or three years. All laws are seriously ill here" - he said in an interview with Viva!

From a different article:

>The premiere of "Szamanka" also sparked a wide discussion about the way Żuławski treats his actresses. Iwona Petry, an amateur who played the role of an Italian, remembered working with Żuławski as the worst horror movie. She complained that she was subjected to mental blackmail, humiliated on set, stripped of intimacy.

No. 112838

Samefag, since you asked about Posession specifically - here's what Adjani had to say about working with Zulawski:

>I struggled with depression for a long time, there were months when I did not have the strength to get out of bed. I am one of the actresses who often play with their own emotions. For me, the descent to hell was my collaboration with Andrzej Żuławski on "Possession". He thought that I would play better if he would humiliate and insult me ​​on the set - she confided in "Wyborcza". - I paid for it with a nervous breakdown.

More details here. Zulawski admits to paying Adjani minimum salary since she had problems getting hired and threatening her with violence to the point Adjani was terrified of him.

I’d like to rave about colours out of space, but unfortunately I can’t get past my hatred for Nicholas Cage. Even despite the fact that he wasn’t too shit in it. So my absolute favourite would be annihilation as it just did a beautiful job. I’m kinda happy cosmic horror is emerging more. I hope Del Toro pushes for At the mountains of madness again. Ridiculous it was turned down due to not having a happy ending or love story and being rated R. Love stories and hero’s in horror movies is just tasteless and cheapens the movies.

Watched Bone Tomahawk recently. I enjoyed it, actually shot very beautifully considering the material. Had some cool concepts and the gore was sharp and visceral without feeling schlocky, which is rare for horror. I felt genuine tension in some scenes and it does have a nice, slow build that still feels engaging.

I wanted "more" somehow but I've realized I'm almost impossible to fully satisfy when it comes to horror, so this is probably as close as it's going to get for me when it comes to a near-perfect example of the genre.

I liked Matthew Fox's character, vicious dandies are my weakness. Also the most horrific part of the movie for me wasn't actually the bisection but seeing what they did to the women. Of course the most repulsive torture is saved for our sex, to be reduced to blind, living torsos that only exist to be raped and give birth. Christ. At least the other deaths were over quickly; I wish the characters had put them out of their misery before leaving.

I rewatched the Host to show my family today (I watched it alone a while ago and really liked it) my sister hates scary movies and she got jumped scared a lot. She made me go upstairs with her to the bathroom earlier as she didn’t want to be upstairs alone kek. I really recommend the movie. It came out on Shudder earlier this year and made during lockdown (I torrented it) it is a British found footage style movie? But it is done through Zoom. So it is like unfriended not paranormal activity/blair witch style. But I think more effective and independent feeling. These friends basically do a seance over zoom. I won’t spoil it but it is very simple, effective and just under an hour long. I recommend.

I thought the same and wasn't very impressed. It was super melodramatic in some sections to the point of comedy, which I know isn't exactly uncharacteristic of most Korean films, but it took away from any sense of suspense. It's been a while but I think I remember a running scene in particular where the guy trips over like 5 different things in increasingly dramatic ways. It was practically to the point of slapstick.

Nature is terrifying, nature doesn't give a fuck about any of of us and it will do what it does until it can't anymore and then it will somehow uh find a way to keep being terrifying.

>Technically you're right

That doesn't make any sense kek, be at peace anon I know we've got an influx but the newfags aren't behind every scathing post pretending to be oldfags

No. 149303

Haven't seen Annihilation yet, but would you agree with a statement that it's like a 'what if Pokemon were real' movie? I've read an opinion like that somewhere and it made me even more curious (even if it sounds autistic as hell).
>inb4 why not watch it
I know it's just a movie and not a tv series, but I have a terrible backlog, so it's hard for me to get to watch anything unless a specific mood hits me…
>the imageboard/forum issue
I've spent long years in here and managed to notice that calling lolcow/4chan a 'forum' instead of an imageboard is shunned. IMHO at best it's like referring to a dog as an animal. True, but imprecise and confusing. Also it brings to mind randoms who find their pal cow here and screech about hate forums while bumping years old threads kek

No. 149420

It’s obviously an amalgamation between strugatzki’s stalker and lovecraft’s the thing out of space, so if you’re into that kind of stuff or like flashy visuals check it out. Imo It’s only interesting because it’s borrowed it’s concept from very great source material. The visuals are outstanding but the story is really weak especially in regard to the superiority of what it’s inspired from.

No. 149494

Why would anyone take away "pokemon but real" from Annihilation? Is it because hybrid animals appear in it 2 or 3 times? It is a horribly autistic opinion and you can disregard it.

Hi, I’ve been a horror fan since early childhood and I collect horror DVDs. I’ll list some of my favorites. Also, if you’re looking for a specific type of movie I’ll be happy to recommend you some. Note that I’m mainly a fan of shitty underground gore and bad slashers though kek
>Martyrs (2008)
This one’s been brought up a few times ITT but it really, really is amazing. A perfect blend of psychological horror and gore. The ending is one of the best I’ve ever seen.
>Hunter Hunter (2020)
One of my all time favorite thrillers, though if you can’t handle animal death you might want to stay away from this one.
>Inside (2007)
Nasty gore and a decent story. All I’m gonna say on this one is that French people don’t fuck around with their horror.
>Hellraiser 1 and 2
I don’t think this needs explaining. These films are genuine masterpieces imho. If you like cool demon shit and bad 80s lightning fx then these are the movies for you.

I have a lot more but I’m nervous to post them because I don’t want to look too weird or spergy aha

so many of my favorite horrors are in this thread, you all have good taste and i love you. i'm going to share some that haven't been mentioned yet.
>a girl walks home alone at night (2014)
art house vampire horror.
>raw (2016)
french horror. if you like films like martyrs and inside as >>154600 mentioned, then you'll have an idea what you're going to get with this one. not super gory but the few gore scenes it has are super disturbing and effective.
>haute tension (2003)
another french horror like raw/martyrs/inside. i like this one a little less because the ending fucking sucks but i can still recommend it because up until the end it has everything a good slasher should have.
>one cut of the dead (2017)
japanese zombie horror. it manages to do something new with the otherwise overdone genre. if you give it a watch, please don't get discouraged while watching the first half. i promise it gets better.
>helter skelter (2012)
japanese psychological horror based on the manga of the same name.
>the host (2006)
korean monster horror by bong joon-ho.
>green room (2015)
neo nazi slasher starring anton yelchin (rip)
>eyes without a face (1960)
french new wave horror. one of my all time favorite films tbh

ok, that was all for now, i'll probably come back with some more recommendations. btw the ones i mentioned aren't neccessarily all super scary or disturbing, i just think they're really good. sometimes the ones that scare me the most are also the ones i forget about faster because all they did was give me an adrenaline kick while i was watching kek

No. 154668

It's based on real-life witchcraft in north africa with a mix of blair witch project. It's also Tunisia's first ever horror movie.

This is one of my favorite movies and I think it's really underappreciated. It's got great reviews so I won't say it's underrated, it's just that not enough people have gotten the chance to see it.

Thank you, and sorry for replying so late! Here are some more of my favorites:
>Skinner (1993)
Slasher where Ted Raimi plays a psychopath who skins prostitutes. Think that’s all that needs to be said here. If you’re a gore fan, this one’s for you. Watch the uncut version if possible.
>mother! (2017)
VERY fucked up, so if you have a weak stomach or are easily disturbed then don’t watch. Truly phenomenal acting, a cool story and overall just amazing.
>Mermaid in a Manhole
VERY gory movie with an amazing (yet disgusting) plot. In other words, yeah, it’s an old J-horror.
>Noroi (2005)
>>100813 talked about this one already, but it’s my all time favorite film. If you haven’t watched it yet, you are missing out. Seriously.
>Occult (2009)
Same director as Noroi, so needless to say this is good. Very psychological.
Apologies for any errors in this post, I’m tired but I felt like talking about horror a bit lol. I’m gonna take a nap now. I hope you all end up loving these movies as much as I do!

No. 155385

Since you like J-horror, what are your thoughts on Marebito, or Kairo?

No. 155386

Never seen Kairo before, but I love Marebito. I feel like this goes without saying, but fucked up horror movies are my absolute favorite. Always have been, really.
Also, in no way is this related to your question, but I forgot to mention this one in my previous posts so I’ll say it here.
Watch Dead Silence. I first saw it with my mother when I was a tween and the both of us still love it to this day. Killer dolls, spooky ghost women, creepy and tense scenes, it has it all.

No. 155387

Oh yeah Dead Silence is fantastic. My friends kinda blew it off when it came out since they though it was just a generic mid-2000s horror movie, but it's a great modern gothic.
And Kairo was one of those movies where the core idea just gets under my skin, and I think it was kinda prescient with its themes of isolation and social alienation in an age of when we're connected more than we ever were in the past.

No. 155396

>Mermaid in a Manhole
I don't recommend this film by any means but there's a story about how late 80s/early 90s Charlie Sheen watched this coked out of his gourd and contacted the FBI, thinking he'd watched an actual snuff film. It's one of those movies.

Noroi was really good but it fucked me up. I still get spooked just seeing the face in the poster. A+ would recommend.

One of my fave ghost movies is Whispering Corridors (the first film from 1998).
Very female-focused without being exploitative.
It caused a huge outcry in Korea when it came out bc it was an accurate indictment of their school system, but it's also a solid story with a great ending imho. Picrel

Anyone here watch My Heart Can't Beat Unless You Tell It To (2020) dir Jonathan Cuartas? I know "go in blind" is pretty overused advice but that's what I did and I really liked the film; it's a nice, strong self-contained short story (and just 89 minutes too). A little bit of the premise if anyone wants: It's a melancholy little family drama with a "mundane" vampire in the heart of it. Plus I just wanted to hug Owen Campbell throughout the whole thing, he looked so gentle and cute.

Unhinged started out really scary ngl as a woman. Men are 1000% more likely to be a fucking psycho to you on the roads if you're any less than totally submissive and courteous on the roads in my personal driving experience. But the movie quickly goes down the fucking toilet. What a fucking waste of a good premise. They could have had a good message about scrotoid violence.
Makes me sad to see comments of women saying they're scared to honk at bad drivers because they're scared but men have no trouble roadraging because they don't have to think about the possible consequences.

This isn't a rec but what do anons think of the Evil Dead series? I watched the second one yesterday and it just felt like an underwhelming rehash of the first one (but yes, the special effects are obviously good). Is the third one worth bothering with?

I LOVE the first one - then second one - then third. I like to see the first one as Ash being terrified, then the second as Ash going crazy because of everything going on, which is why it's a little sillier. I honestly don't like the third all too much and it's soooo far off from the first two. It's more camp and medieval vs horror. the people that hype up the third one so much are annoying scrote fanboys who collect pops imo.
I actually saw the second one for the first time at a Bruce Campbell live commentary show! It was really fun, he talked about how they re-used all the actors and re-told the story slightly different as they couldn't get the full rights for the first movie? Also that when they tried get the funding from the bank- they made a fake studio to back the project so that it looked like they had one. The opening rose animation was done by them lol

I agree completely with you nonny, but when initially watching this movie with my boyfriend, we couldn't not laugh during the final fight. Russell Crowe is so large and moves so fast from the car to outside to the house, and he kept getting up after getting seriously harmed, he's like fat Michael fucking Myers.

1408 is also good King adaptation, but the short story still almost makes me freeze up in terror, even a decade after reading it.

>His head was clear-the strong whiff of sulfur and the sudden rising heat from his shirt had done that much-but the room maintained its insanely Moorish aspect. Moorish was wrong, not even very close, but it was the only word that seemed even to reach toward what had happened here… what was still happening. He was in a melting, rotting cave full of swoops and mad tilts. The door to the bedroom had become the door to some sarcophagal inner chamber. And to his left, where the picture of the fruit had been, the wall was bulging outward toward him, splitting open in those long cracks that gaped like mouths, opening on a world from which something was now approaching. Mike Enslin could hear its slobbering, avid breath, and smell something alive and dangerous. It smelled a little like the lion-house in the-

>The flames scorched the undershelf of his chin, banishing thought. The heat rising from his blazing shirt put that waver back into the world, and as he began to smell the crispy aroma of his chest-hair starting to fry, Mike again bolted across the sagging rug to the hall door. An insectile buzzing sound had begun to sweat out of the walls. The yellow-orange light was steadily brightening, as if a hand were turning up an invisible rheostat. But this time when he reached the door and turned the knob, the door opened. It was as if the thing behind the bulging wall had no use for a burning man; did not, perhaps, relish cooked meat.

It still chills my blood.

Incident in a Ghostland, it’s about two girls who are trapped inside their new home by two serial killers. I can’t say too much without giving away important plot points but it deals with trauma and escapism, what the girls go through is really disturbing and the film messes with your mind a bit. Really recommend, also stressed me out a lot towards the end. It’s also directed by the same director behind Martyrs.

No. 182718

Is it graphic torture porn like Martyrs?

I finally watched this. The first part up until the death of Lucie was pretty good imo. Lucie was so beautiful and sad. And I liked the relationship between the girls. Afterwards it became lame and meaningless ryona porn.
