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!

not particularly scary, just beautiful, imo. It takes place in the eighties but its not all corny like Stranger Things.
I love the atmosphere and romance.

I really liked this movie as well but I prefer the Swedish one.

This one sucks compared to the Swedish one. If anons decide to watch, watch that one.

it’s more creepy and unsettling than scary but i remember the wicker man (1973) being pretty good

No. 108555

I was really wary of this movie because i kept mixing it up with the plot of other autopsy movie named the corpse of anna fritz or something, because the summary and trailer for that one were simply disgusting. Autopsy of jane doe ended up being cool though.

No. 108556

I've watched both and I think Anna Fritz must be like a movie with the same ideas but done completely different, Shudder originals do that a lot.

Anna Fritz is alright the ending is much better than I thought it was gonna be but Jane Doe is miles ahead.

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!

No. 108989

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. Also, I thought it was weird how the creator of this used that homeless guy for this project. I thought everything was gonna come together at the end but idk. Nothing about this movie really made sense to me. Maybe i'm just slow lol

Anyone watch Goedam? I didn't think it was super scary but it was really short so I say worth a watch. Esp episodes 4, 5 and 6. They're all on average like 10 mins and the credits take up a third.

That sounds like facebook horror group tier opinion, needs jumpscares every 5 seconds to be scared.

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.

The director also made the Conjuring, which is in my backlog at the moment. Do anons recommend it? How scary is it?

No. 109497

EXCELLENT film. It was actually the movie that "converted" me and made me realize just how good horror can be.

Conjuring is great, easily one of the best horrors made in the latest 10 years, especially given the cliche subject, definitely go for it!

Psychological thriller. This movie got me uncomfortable and stressed out the entire time. It feels like you’re shrooming and you can feel you’re about to have a bad trip…

This movie was pretty good; it was somehow a slog but still enjoyable.

However, at a lot of points the main actress had a grease paint textured foundation that had oxidized SO badly. It distracted me so much. All I could think of was the peanut butter baby meme through the whole movie.

This movie is almost never talked about. Great choice!

Saw 1 was easily the best of the bunch and I really wish they stopped after the first movie. Some people liked the second Saw, but it was incredibly weak compared to the first, and it got worse from there.

Too slow, too pretentious and overall boring af but it made me cry. Maybe because I hate seeing sad older people.

I thought it might be dull but for a film with endless scenes of two people chatting in a car, I didn't think it was.

>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. She goes through this hellish experience and at the end, of course she’s going to go back and do what she loves, because that’s what she loves, there’s no other option for her.”

This is the creator's explanation.

Thank you for this. I get why she did what she did now but it's kinda sad, like she feels there's no other option so she must potentially face danger again, bless.

Nothing similar comes to mind but I second your recommend of this. If there's one thing, I think the short film version from the anthology Three Extremes is slightly better than the full film version. Also it's from Hong Kong, not Korea.

The other two films in Three Extremes were nowhere near as good as Dumplings imo.

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.

note to anons that may care about this sort of thing: if you don't like watching movies by abusive scrotes dating women one third their age and mindfucking/abusing their actresses, you may skip this one.
