I honestly don’t know how to categorise this but the only movie that’s ever scared me was one where someone saw something and came kind of possessed but it wasn’t an ordinary possession as they literally turned into a monster and by turned into a monster I mean she went from human to I honestly don’t know what you would call it. Idk it was a weird indie film that I’m sure if I watched it today I would be like wtf is going on.
The creepiest movie mentally is Climax. It takes a scary look at the human condition under the influence of drugs and it makes people do crazy things. I guess that would be inner demons/misters coming to the surface.
Horror movies don’t scare me. I mean, they do with the jump scares, but I don’t consider those real scares because jump scares happen and then it is over. The real scares are those that last throughout the movie. They creep up on you. They build.
(I’m a horror movie lover if you couldn’t tell. Haven’t been watching movies recently, but I sure want to.)
I said 1, but I don’t mean like people who turn into monsters. I mean people who are seemingly normal but something is off-putting about them. Like maybe they smile too brightly or are a little stalkery, or they pop up and it’s just…strange, and you don’t notice at first, but it slowly creeps up on you, and with the MC you slowly become consumed in the fear.
That’s the best form of horror in my opinion. I mean, sure, I like the demons and monsters grabbing people off their beds and into hell, but it’s the human monsters that could actually be a real thing is what is the biggest scare. There is nothing supernatural at all about them. So, normal. Can happen.
There was this movie called The Gift. Oh gosh, it’s something that could actually happen and that made it twice as frightening. The Perfect Host, Get Out, The Visit (it was okay. not what I expected from M. Night), We Are What We Are, etc.
Supernatural monsters can be brushed off as fiction. But people being people on a horrifying level can’t be. It’s so real. You can’t shake it. And maybe…you know someone like that or you could know someone like that
it’s brand new, released this january to only 800 theaters by a very indie publisher. it’s analog style, not many jumpscares but the whole thing is just off, ya know? and depending on who you ask is either the scariest hell shit ever or a disappointment.
it looks good…but I’m afraid it will follow the typical haunted house plot based on what the trailer showed. Does it start with a family that has some issues and moves to a new house and then they unleash something that starts to haunt them? It drives them crazy and some of them come together to fight, but it’s not a happy ending type of thing? Or is it more psychological?
nope, it’s about two little kids who wake up in the middle of the night to find their dad is missing and all the outside doors and windows are gone. they can’t get out, they have no way to tell the time, and they’re stuck in there with an… entity.
