Saw Noroi (The Curse) today. Iirc from 2005.

Decent japanese horror movie, supposedly based on a real case.

I feel like I've probably seen that, but I can't really remember it. I'll give it another look.

I tried watching Rings, the recent Hollywood Ring sequel. I couldn't make it past the first two minutes. The first thing the guy says is "Have you heard the story about the videotape that if you watch it you die seven days later?" Yeah, not too on-the-nose there, mate. If someone tells me it's worth pushing through that awful intro, then I'll give it another go.

I watched Pet on Netflix the other day. More thriller than horror, but it was a pretty cool twist on the 'guy-kidnaps-girl' mechanic. Worth a look.

I also got around to watching Don't Breathe, which was fun, but not really what I was expecting.

What We Do In The Shadows

A really fun take on the life of a group of vampires but unlike "Interview With The Vampire" which focuses on the epic adventure of their "lives" spanning eras, this movie is about the humdrum day-to-day existence of what it really might be like if a group of fairly average "people" had to live together for centuries.

Great stuff with an awkward, low-key New Zealand sense of humour.

I saw the Clovehitch killer (iirc title of the movie is 'Clovehitch').
It was decent. Not that believable, but at least the first half of the movie had good atmosphere :)

Saw this almost a month ago:



It is a quite interesting movie. It would also work as a horror adventure game, due to the very elaborate centerpiece :)

I think the most recent horror film I've watched, was the latest Halloween film. (Halloween 2018)
I went in expecting something laughably bad. But it was remarkably good. I'd highly recommend it.
It's not very scary though. At least to me.

Hereditary was pretty good:


Errementari was a fun one to me, although more a folktale than horror:


Aterrados was great as well. The story was so so but it had some genuinly creepy moments and great effects:

I second Mandle on What We Do In The Shadows, it's an all around great and fun movie!

I either had the worlds best or the worlds worst Spanish teacher, because said teacher let the class watch a bunch of Spanish movies during lessons as opposed to studying grammar,
and I especially liked Pan's Labyrinth by Guillermo del Toro, which juxtaposed the supernatural monsters with the real horror of fascism to great effect. I'd just recommend the works of
del Toro in general, because he's also made other solid horror movies like The devil's backbone and Crimson Peak, the latter I especially recommend to anyone who like Gothic horror.

I thought Pan's Labyrinth was in french?
Well either way, I personally couldn't get into Pan's Labyrinth. I'm sure it's a good film, I just can't stand subtitles. And in a film like Pan's Labyrinth where the majority of the appeal is in the awesome designs and the delivery of lines, you lose a lot with your eyes glued to the words at the bottom of the screen.
I always hoped that there would be a dub, even a subpar one. But to my knowledge, there's never been one.

Also it's been a long time since I last watched Pan's Labyrinth, so correct me if I'm wrong here. But based on my vague recollection, it was implied that the monsters and such were just in her head. Because they never actually interacted with the real world. Which I didn't like. I wanted to see everyone get killed at the end because I thought they all deserved it.
Please correct me if I'm recalling that wrong though. I think it's been well over ten years since I watched it.

Pan's Labyrinth is definitely in Spanish. As far as I know, Guillermo del Toro only has directed movies in Spanish and English. And there's the fact that Pan's Labyrinth is set in Spain.
I've never had issue with the subtitles on it. It's not like there's a lot of fast paced action. And most of the scenes where there's sets and make up to enjoy, there's enough quiet to enjoy them.
And as for whether the events are real or not, the movie leaves it open ended for the viewer to decide. But I think that Guillermo del Toro himself is of the opinion that everything happened.

That's unfortunate. There's so much worthwhile cinema out there, in languages other than English.


Rigor Mortis (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2771800/?ref_=nv_sr_1?ref_=nv_sr_1) is a visually splendid homage to Hong Kong vampire movies of the 1980's, and a pretty cool pre-Birdman...well, Birdman.

And for Netflix viewers, The Wailing (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5215952/?ref_=nv_sr_1?ref_=nv_sr_1) is good way to spend two and a half hours. Be warned, though, it's a slow-burn, and bereft of jump scares.


Errementari was a fun one to me, although more a folktale than horror.

Aterrados was great as well. The story was so so but it had some genuinly creepy moments and great effects.

Yeah, I enjoyed both of those as well. Errementari was very Del Toro in feel, but still it's own thing.


Off the top of my head...

The Blood on Satan's Claw (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0066849/?ref_=nv_sr_1?ref_=nv_sr_1) is a good entry in the UK's short-lived "Folk Horror" boom of the '70s. I think it's on Netflix, too.

And while it will never replace the original in my heart, the recent remake of Suspiria (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1034415/?ref_=ttls_li_tt) is worth a look.

Yeah well. I hear that you can get used to subtitles if you watch enough with them. But as of right now, watching with subtitles for me, is like having a kid constantly kick the back of your seat during the entire film. I'll only tolerate them if I really want to watch the film, and even then the film kinda gets ruined for me.
But personally I think it's more unfortunate the amount of books, comics, games, and movies other people will never experience, either because of preconceived notions or because they were never translated. I could give a huge list of brilliant stuff, ranging from Japanese Boardgame videogames, to B-horror movies.

Seriously!  8-0
And here I've been thinking for the past ten years or so, that it was set during one of the french civil wars (probably the WW2 one.).
Wow, was I wrong.  :-[

Saw "Silent House" (remake).

The actress is very good, but imo the movie just has a story which has already been done to death. You will identify what it going on (at worst) by the half-point, so it becomes a bit of a bore up to the obvious "reveal".

You should definitively try to learn to get used to texted movies, because I promise it'll be worth it. I've never heard of anyone learning to watch subtitled movies ever wanting to go back to watching dubbed versions, and for a good reason.
In Sweden there is no dubbed movies for adults, only movies aimed at kids too young to be expected to read well get dubbed, and the suggestion of dubbing a movie for adults would be treated as condescending, like they'd think swedes are too dumb to read. But the upside of this is that pretty much all Swedes under 60 will learn English at a much faster rate thanks to all English movies and TV-shows that get imported, and I myself was able to read Poe and Lovecraft in their original language by high school largely thanks to all the English-speaking media I consumed, plus you get good practice in reading. At least to me, I don't see why reading subtitles in movies are any worse than reading the text in your average AGS game.

So as a Swede, I feel genuinely sorry for all the people that never get to learn to read subtitles while still young, all due to the idiotic practice of dubbing everything, not just because they miss out so much of the nuance and original acting of the dubbed movies, but also because of all movies they'll miss out on because subtitles are much easier and affordable than dubbing, and therefore most movies will only get subtitles. I think you can compare it to learning how to swim, sure it can be hard at first, and getting water in your nose is annoying, but once you have learned it, there is just so many good things and great experiences that can come from it and you'll never regret it.

In that case, I'd definitively recommend The Devil's backbone, also a Spanish movie by Del Toro. It's a fantastic movie also set in the Spanish Civil war, and not to spoil anything, but I will say justice is well served at the end of the movie, and the supernatural entities do get to play an important role in it.

One of the best "horror" films (I'm hesitant to call it horror since it's very slow paced, mostly focused on tension and claustrophobia) I've seen in a VERY long time is A Dark Song.

It's about a woman who hires an occultist to help her perform a vengeance ritual which will require them to stay in a closed-off house without setting foot outside for as long as it takes for it to work (we're talking months here, not just a few hours) because once started, the ritual cannot be interrupted. That's about all I'd be willing to say without getting into spoiler territory.

The director is Irish, it's set in rural Wales, and there are only two actors in the whole movie, so right from its inception it already feels different from most cookie-cutter American horror like Insidious and all that crap. It's very low key, no jumpscares, just a constant feeling of dread and tension. There's a bit of conventional "horror" at some point, but it's not the movie's main point. I won't even recommend watching the trailer since it gives away a couple of scenes that kind of lose their impact if not watched at their correct place in the movie.

It's definitely a cult flick which might not be to everybody's taste, especially if you're used to jump scares, cliches, creepy singing children, cackling ghosts and deafening sound effects, but if it clicks with you, it's the kind of movie that just sticks around in your brain long, long after you've finished watching it. There's something about the pacing, the cinematography, the atmosphere, the performances, that makes it one of a kind.

If I piqued your curiosity, give it a try! I don't think you'll regret it  :)

Urgh, I hate that movie trope. It's basically been done to death because it's the default backstory hack writers give female main characters.

The other problem with that trope is that it's using a real-life trauma for horror and shock value, so to a lot of audience members who have experienced it firsthand, it's not going to be a fantasy horror comparable to zombies or vampires,
but a stark reminder of something they fear in real life and at worst it can even cause a severe anxiety attack, and I really wish it wasn't so overused, because poor treatment of it has really ruined a lot of movies for me.

So far, the best treatment of this topic I've seen in a mainstream movie was Sucker Punch (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GVVYB8gaSqc), but there it isn't a plot twist, but was revealed at the start of the movie,
and rather than showing the trauma the female leads go through the movie focuses entirely on the elaborate heroic fantasies they conjure up to escape from it.

It takes really good actors to pull off a 2 character cast, and the two actors in this movie are completely believable and amazing!

And I was delighted by the very, very unexpected ending!

What We Do In The Shadows

A really fun take on the life of a group of vampires but unlike "Interview With The Vampire" which focuses on the epic adventure of their "lives" spanning eras, this movie is about the humdrum day-to-day existence of what it really might be like if a group of fairly average "people" had to live together for centuries.

Great stuff with an awkward, low-key New Zealand sense of humour.

I assume you're aware that there's a TV adaptation that started airing just a few weeks ago? Set in Staten Island and starring Matt Berry. It's... OK.

The most recent horror movie I watched was Cam, about a cam girl whose online identity is stolen by a doppelganger:


Not really scary at all, but interesting, well acted, and I thought the final confrontation was quite clever.

Oh, and I also watched Happy Death Day 2U (the sequel to the surprisingly good "Final Destination + Scream + Groundhog Day" mashup) not too long ago:


This one throws in more time-travel shenanigans, and is still plenty fun.

If any movie deserves a TV show adaption, it's What We Do In The Shadows, the concept is pretty much perfect for that.

Anyway, Happy Death Day 2U really sounds like somebody thought Groundhog day would be way better as a horror movie. Either way, it looks interesting!

Yeah, on paper it sounds perfect, but in practice...  :-\ First episode was pretty good, almost as good as the movie; second was ok, third and fourth have been really weak, to the point where I don't know if I'll continue watching. I'd definitely recommend giving it a try though!

That was also my experience with WWDitS. I'm several episodes behind and don't feel any pressing need to catch up.

Anyway, Happy Death Day 2U really sounds like somebody thought Groundhog day would be way better as a horror movie. Either way, it looks interesting!

Yeah, that's pretty much precisely what it is. (Or, not necessarily better: just that it would be cool to combine Groundhog Day with the sort of fun, wacky deaths you get in the Final Destination movies + a basic "masked killer" slasher plot.) The original movie is simply Happy Death Day (though I think it was released under a bunch of other titles in various countries) and came out 2017.

Hasn't this been done in that Butterfly effect film?  :-D

Eh, they're not particularly similar. On the other hand, the premise of the Netflix show Russian Doll is almost exactly the same as Happy Death Day, though the tone is quite different.

Yesterday I watched the new film in the Japanese Ring series, Sadako.

It was rather good, really. Nowhere near as bad as Sadako 3D anyway. There was of course a lot of dodgy acting and even dodgier visual effects but that’s unavoidable with Japanese films these days. But it was directed by Hideo Nakata who directed the first core Ring (1998) movie and it’s sequel. It wasn’t super scary but there were some fun creepy moments and it did a good job of telling a new story while keeping Sadako as the main antagonist.

I happened to be poking my head in the Cinema to see what was on and Sadako was just about to start, so based on whether or not it was a good decision to go in and watch the movie, I’d give it a thumbs up. 👍

Yesterday I watched the new film in the Japanese Ring series, Sadako.

As a huge fan of horror movies I'm pretty surprised when one actually scares me. I usually just have a ton of fun without many uncomfortable feelings.

But two movies still scare the absolute crap out of me:

The Exorcist (original) and Ring (original).

I'm wary to watch any of the other Sadako cash-ins and haven't even watched the original sequels (were they Loop and Rassen I think?) because I felt they would spoil the mystery of what makes the Sadako character so terrifying by providing too much explanation, just like Hannibal Rising spoils the Hannibal Lecter character to death by taking away everything that is unknown about him.

Rasen is the original sequel to the 1998 Ring but it was so bad that it has been disregarded. The better sequels are Ring 2 and Ring 0: Birthday. To me they are the canonical trilogy. And they’re all good films.

They do go into her whole background and why she became the monster she did. But I don’t think it ruins it like Hannibal Rising. And that information is all in the books anyway (although the book’s story is slightly different from the films)

There was first a 1995 straight-to-TV Ring film. I’ve heard that was also pretty bad though I never saw it.
Title: Re: Seen any cool horror films lately?
Post by: Mandle on 30 May 2019, 16:49
It just scares me more that Sadako was born wrong somehow in some way that we cannot understand.

If I watch some explanation that her grandmother had been damned for spitting on a shrine or whatever they come up with it just won't scare me as much as "this just happens and we don't know why" no matter how well done the explanation is.

I recently re-watched Wes Craven's "Dracula 2000" (or possibly 2001 the box and the in-movie title disagree on this)

It was great to re-watch because I didn't know who Gerald Butler was when I saw it back in 2002 or so and his not-so-Spartan performance as Dracula is quite awesome. (He's a lot skinnier as well in this role and has a neck narrower than his head even)

Also, Christopher Plummer as Van Helsing is great, and the dude who plays Sherlock in the show "Elementary", Sick-Boy from Trainspotting, is always cool.

Apart from the famous actors viewed in retrospect, the plot is great and has a killer twist towards the end!

Well, I finally got around to watching "Us" and I have to say that despite having guessed the "twist" in the first 5 minutes of the movie, I enjoyed it quite a bit! Definitely more than "Get Out", which I found to be a ok-ish horror movie but waaaayyyyy overrated. "Us" is creepy, intriguing, and Lupita Nyong'o and Elizabeth Moss absolutely kill it. Worth checking out!

I also have it in mind to watch "The Wind" this week, I'll report back if it's worth a shot.

Watching Get Out in the cinema was the only time I considered buying another ticket and watching it again there and then (I didn’t actually do this only because I had to meet my wife).

I've watched it twice and it's great on the re-watch catching all the hidden hints of what is going on. So many!

Now, that's a great idea for an adventure game.

Nice, but doesn't it sort of give away too much in the trailer?  :shocked:

I normally don't watch trailers for said reason. I recently watched I Am Mother and very much enjoyed it. I sent a link of the trailer to some friends at which point I watched the trailer myself only to see that it ruins the entire movie. I like a good tease but why spoil the whole film in a nearly 3 minute trailer, give us a 30-45 sec tease and leave it at that.
