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.

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.)

Anyone ever see Possum? This shit fucked with me. Very unsettling movie about childhood trauma…Its got a scary ass puppet in it.
Also, I agree this should be in /m/, maybe mods can move it later

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.
This short movie on YouTube is actually pretty nice.>>100592
My favourite movie with Midsommar.
I cannot rewatch THAT scene from lake mungo…really tapped into a primal fear of mine, just thinking about it makes me wanna turn a light on lol.>>100590
fuck this movie too, it made me miserable for a day afterward. it's really grim which I usually find a bit overbearing in a horror film, but being able to relate to the subject matter just made it miserable for me.

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

My favourite horror movie of all time is Ginger Snaps. I saw it for the first time in middle school and I was a huge tomboy so the whole metaphor of periods = terrifying werewolf body horror really spoke to me. It's a bit of a cheesy b-movie though.

suspiria 2018 was imperfect but some scenes were so great ! I especially loved the first act of the movie
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.
File: 1595664888883.jpg (660.84 KB, 1188x1810, fats.jpg)
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.

Idk about Actually Scary but here are some I watched recently and enjoyed a lot, some to my surprise even
>I See You
A boy in town went missing, weird shit started happening to a cop’s family.
Three childhood besties’ psychotic and psychedelic reunion.
A little girl is forbidden to go outside by schizo dad.
>What Keeps You Alive
Lesbians can’t catch a break. Romantic getaway gone sexual (gone wrong).
>The Witch: Subversion
Esper girl just wants to live normally.
Florida, giant crocs, Effie from Skins.
some of the scariest shit i've ver seen
>>104832>aliens>>>>ghosts in the scary ladder
I wish there were more good horror movies about alien abductions. Some of the high strangeness the alleged abductees experienced would serve as a perfect inspiration for some top tier unsettling visuals.
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.
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.

I thought this movie was great! The whole premise to me was scary. Hopefully there’s no sequel to this.. I really liked how it ended.
File: 1599558552424.jpg (280.77 KB, 600x800, martyrs.jpg)
Have any of you watched Martyrs (2008)? I heard opinions that it really affects people and they're shaken for days. Saw it being called immoral and evil and people advising others to not watch it; not because it's bad but how hard to stomach it is. Can anyone confirm or share their opinion? I'm kinda scared to see it, but maybe that's some "normies histeria" and it's not actually that shocking?
File: 1599559576414.jpg (57.79 KB, 455x674, images.jpeg-3.jpg)
I love this movie so much, but I rarely see it talked about. Haven't watched the sequel though, is it good? I liked the characters and the whole claustrophobia-ness of the underground cave was intense.
I watched this twice and there were slight differences in the English subtitle translation between versions. The second viewing, I'm guessing it's the one most available on streaming, has a different final line that changes the film for the worse imo.
It's a small thing but pretty annoying.
That one is "Fire in the Sky"! Def a GOAT in the alien movie genre.>>104968
Dark Skies is another good one.>>100684
At least once every other month I have a dream of moving to a haunted house, getting haunted to hell and back, then moving away and thinking wow its finally over just to realize that "it" followed me to my new home. Maybe ive watched too many horror ghost movies lol.
"As above so below" is a good one too. The V/H/S one too.

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.
I had to check the original voices in french of that last scene she says doubt, Etienne
. While the line of your first viewing sounds cooler, this line is more close to the meaning.
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.
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).

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.

Let Me in
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'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.
File: 1600942670767.jpg (52.58 KB, 1000x563, Murder-Death-Koreatown-2020-Re…)
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!

Hated Midsommar and Hereditary. Here's my fav list:
REC 1 & 2
Train to Busan
28 days later & 28 weeks Later
The Descent 1
The Blair Witch Project (yes, I know it's a controversial one but honestly, it is cult as it sets up the whole horror genre and it's the only decent one imo)
The Human Centipede 1
Don't Breath (my fav horror movie)
>Psychological, but borderline thriller edition
Confessions (a great ass japanese movie that no one knows about)
Silence of the Lambs (fav thriller)
Ok I can look past your dislike to Ari Aster movies but explain this:>The Blair Witch Project (yes, I know it's a controversial one but honestly, it is cult as it sets up the whole horror genre and it's the only decent one imo)
How tf liking Blair Witch Project is controversial, I thought it's a beloved cult classic?
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.>>109144
That sounds like facebook horror group tier opinion, needs jumpscares every 5 seconds to be scared.

>>109476>Psychological horror>Saw 1>The Human Centipede 1
>How are these physiological? they are straight up torture porn or body horror
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.
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?

I’m thinking of ending things (2020)
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.
File: 1601695955347.jpg (182.62 KB, 626x684, img_4759.jpg)
Cam's ending is a confusing but it has some nice visuals and some parts genuinely unsettled me. It's one of the few decent cyber horror films out there.
This movie is almost never talked about. Great choice!>>109494>>109488
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.
I thought it was weird that she continued camming after all the shit that happened
Despite being made by a former sex worker nothing about this except her money makes sex work look empowering, didn't even need a creepy AI to do it. Im not sure of the directors intentions.
>>110250>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.

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.
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.https://translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c?depth=1&nv=1&pto=aue&rurl=translate.google.pl&sl=auto&sp=nmt4&tl=en&u=https://www.plotek.pl/plotek/56,79592,12746519,zycie-erotyczne-gwiazd-wychowywal-swoje-partnerki-to-bylo.html&usg=ALkJrhjF-qJL3IZxY09iXs1WhraWwV8nBA
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.
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. https://translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c?depth=1&nv=1&pto=aue&rurl=translate.google.com&sl=auto&sp=nmt4&tl=en&u=https://film.wp.pl/prace-z-zulawskim-isabelle-adjani-przyplacila-myslami-samobojczymi-kulisy-glosnego-opetania-6138097498674817a&usg=ALkJrhjqv_ua9y9BubR93-emlqFv1QKJpQ

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.

Creep and Creep 2 are weird, sometimes funny, found footage if you like creepy fucking scrotes who seem like he could be a bit too real lol

Love these movies! Scary and funny. Mark Duplass is a very charismatic psycho. Definitely in my top few horror movie villains ever.

Can someone share opinion on Drag Me To Hell? The poster and premise seem very tacky, but then I saw some very positive opinions and I'm curious what local farmers think.

I don't know if I would call Piercing a horror but Mia Wasikowska as Jackie is absolutely kino. So underrated. Love the book it is based on as well.
So happy you posted this movie. It became one of my comfort horror movies. I also adore the shit out of the soundtrack.

It's easy to discount it since it's been remade and copied and parodied to hell, but the original 1998 japanese Ring is actually really good.
Even if you know all about the ending, it's a really insidious and scary film.

Has anyone seen La Llorona (2019)?
Went straight into my favorites folder tbh. It’s not a murder and jump scares type movie. It is chilling and very emotionally impactful. It’s beautiful and haunting.
Got history lesson about war crimes upon Guatemalan indigenous people. I think the cinematography and directing are great. The most memorable horror I’ve seen this year.

The Wailing was extremely unsettling to me. I went in not expecting much but it's a mindfuck and has a few scenes that are absolutely bone chilling. I don't remember the last time a movie made me so uncomfortable.
The ending made me laugh. The old man being a japanese demon was waaay too on the nose for me, I was so confused about the purpose of all of it at that point.
I enjoyed the suspense leading up to it though.

The Call with Park Shin Hye was good. Great atmosphere and style! Don't think too hard about the plot lol

File: 1624243658087.jpg (333.95 KB, 1500x639, Melancholia_F11_framegrab.jpg)
I loved Melancholia. I could relate to Kirsten Dunst character so half of the movie was nightmarish on a personal level. And then it's a deep dull feeling of dread and grief. Scarier than most movies for me.
So do you feel like the clit cutting
scene was meaningful at all? I'm curious about it because I like Willem as an actor but idk, it just sounded like "I am very smart" masturbatory artsy stuff and I don't like torture porn
Annihilation and all of its surreal scenes have really stayed with me even though the ending underwhelmed me a little, but imo it's very hard to find any scary film with a satisfying ending so that's fine. Something about the way it handles nature made me think of >>148788
also. 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.>>148545>Technically you're right>But actually I'm 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
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
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
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.
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
File: 1627933597674.jpg (27.54 KB, 600x900, 65058316c3dfabef_boxart.jpg)
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
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.>>154619
I love eyes without a face
File: 1628003047187.jpg (83.21 KB, 720x1006, Triangle-730388712-large.jpg)
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.
>DO NOT LOOK UP TRAILERS OR INFO
They will totally spoil the movie, it's best to go in blind and just let it play out. It's available on YouTube for free. I hope you guys enjoy it.
File: 1628010889100.jpg (33.41 KB, 665x374, the-call-2020-netflix.jpg)
Anons, I just watched The Call, a Korean movie on Netflix. God it was one of the best films I have seen in a long time. I recommend so much. 9/10. Has anyone else watched it?
A bunch of Australians were pissed at her because she was living in France and said she turned her back on them, in response she said something like >I'd rather be in france, I'd rather walk my dog in new york
And then her shitty husband hit her and threw her against a wall and wouldn't let her leave France without his permission and the Aussies went "too bad princess"
So basically a bunch of psychopaths were mad at a woman because she liked living in counties that weren't 70% inhabitable wasteland, and when she was beaten by her husband said she deserved it.
File: 1628473222557.jpg (1.38 MB, 2025x3000, The_Empty_Man_2020_.jpg)
The Empty Man was probably the best horror movie of 2020 for me. It was marketed in the worst way though, what little it got. It was done by the guy who did the AM1200 short movie, and it's great for those are looking for slow burn surreal cosmic horror.
holy shit thanks for this recommendation, I watched on Shudder. Fuck , that scene with the
grieving mom and when they walk into the kitchen messed me up

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!
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.
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.

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? >>155673
Also echoing this, thanks anon

i can recommend the mist, sadly i knew how it was going to end because it's so talked about on r/horror, but i still enjoyed it. so fucking bleak.
File: 1628806543264.jpg (604.86 KB, 2126x1196, evildead_brucecampbell.jpg)
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>>155600
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.

Just watched The Boat (2018). I like it a lot.
The premise is very simple but is such an engaging and well done film given the little they have to work with. It even has Greek mythology in it! Recommend for nautical troubles fans.

I recommend Coherence for all those who loved Triangle. I wouldn't say it's a better movie (dialogues are mostly improv) but it's one of the very few movies who have a similar atmosphere to Triangle

Just watched this upon your recommendation anon and holy shit, absolute top notch nautical horror/thriller! Actually scared the shit out of me, it didn't seem like it but it's incredibly well done.
Recommending my own favorite nautical horror series, The Terror (picrel). About two British Navy boats that get stuck in the ice while trying to find a passage to India through the Artic.
It’s been storming here and I watched both these movies wrapped up in bed with curtains opened. So good! Note to self: do not board boats named Aeolus!!!>>181799
Ima watch this next

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.
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.
