I also have it in mind to watch "The Wind" this week, I'll report back if it's worth a shot.
Looking at the trailer, it seems like an interesting premise, but the video sure has the worst thumbnail imaginable.
Seeing someone's constipated face paired with the title "the wind", well...

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

Yes, the final twist was my priority guess from early on too...
and although it started well, yet turned into silly horror comedy for me later.

Us has only just got a release date in Japan (September 6th) so I've got a bit of a wait but it's been my most anticipated movie of 2019. 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).

Are you Japanese? Or just living there?

Just living here. There's lots to love about this country but movie release dates are a serious problem.

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.

:bump:

Well, I will try to watch Ready or Not (originally I though she was Margot Robbie :) ).

But a more serious horror would be appreciated!

My favorite horror movies are:

(in no order)

It follows
The Babadook
The Exorcist
The Tenant (Polanski)

If you would call Angelheart (with Mickey Rourke) horror, then that too  :=

The Last Wave (old australian movie) was ok too, but not really horror imo.

YES. YES. I love that movie SO much.

Also from the same period, Jacob's Ladder is a huge fave of mine...

A Dark Song, which I think I already mentioned here ages and ages ago...

It's a safe pick, but The Shining, of course.

And a lot of people say The VVitch is not a horror movie because it has no jumpscares, but I absolutely disagree. It's a classic horror movie through and through.

I'm sure I'm leaving something out, but I think this makes for a neat top 5!

(ok, bonus: Alien.)

Thank you  8-)

I think I have seen all of them, though...
The original Jacob's Ladder was cool.

KyriakosCH I love that shortfilm "The Dollmaker!" :)  If you are into shortfilms I would totally recommend the youtube channel "DUST". They have loads and loads of sci-fi shortfilms, also some horror ones.

Ready or not is also a movie that I really want to watch, they talked a lot about it in the radio.
Also I am curious about "Parasite", the one that won an oscar I think?

A movie with horror elements that stuck with me after watching it is this one:

There are split opinions about it, but I think its haunting.

The original Jacob's Ladder was cool.

This one just came to my mind: have you watched Mandy? It's a weird one, but I'll take it any day over mass-produced stuff like The Conjuring 25: The Conjurerer :-D
