I try to avoid horror films but here are a few that I’ve seen that struck me:
Afflicted was really good- two guys preparing to go on a worldwide tour
In the Mouth of Madness is an old one that tripped me out during a Halloween Horror film marathon.
Anything where people are doing that weird jerky movement while running at the camera makes me yell at the television- even if it’s just a preview. It freaks me out.
My husband really liked As Above So Below. I refused to watch it so I can’t say how good it is.

dannij8918 : “it follows” fuuuuuucked me up. Suspenseful. Filmed well. Eerie. Horrifying. I love scary movies but this one messed me up for a week

Sinister and It Follows. The concept of It Follows really gets to me – an entity that continuously follows you, day and night, and if it gets to you, you die.

bridgetteto : lol. i could not take that movie seriously when i first watched it. i know it was suppose to be scary, but the kid having a full blown meltdown hissy fit every five minutes in that movie, made me laugh.

The Ring was the only movie that truly F***ed me up when i first saw it, also the movie The Strangers, got to me. And ill be curious to see if the sequel to it lives up to the original.

dannij8918 : The Thai version is actually the original…followed by the Tamil, American and Hindi version.
I love scary movies (and books) but this one really did me in LOL…here’s the trailer..

Japanese horror films such as The Grudge, Ring and one day when I’m brave enough ill watch Shutter. It’s not so scary but I recommend The Wailing and if you love zombies than Train to Busan will blow your mind.
The Exorist really messed me up as a kid and it’s still freaks me out to watch any sort of related exorism movies.
Mirrors and Oculus freaked me out and I couldn’t look in a mirror for a few days afterwards.
Aliens will always be my favourite but not too scary, some jump scenes.
I have to point out that Grave Encounters was underrated and I recommend it if you love those documentary style films. Good jump scares.

So last night I was scrolling through Netflix and found The Ritual. Tried watching it but only got maybe 40 mins in before I stopped because it was unsettling me so much…which is pretty rare for horror movies to do to me. I will definitely have to go back and finish it sometime during daylight, haha. It sorta reminded me of Blair Witch project…hikers finding disturbing things in the woods and then getting stalked by something unknown. Yeesh…much better quality than BWP, of course.

I love Stephen King, though I wouldn’t consider most of his movie adaptations to be very scary. Except for IT. I watched the original once and can’t bring myself to see the new one, haha.
Silent Hill was one that scared me a lot. As well as The Ring/Grudge.

ITA always, always ALWAYS go for the original – whether it’s the Thai “Shutter” original, the Japanese “The Grudge” or “The Ring” original or even the gritty older versions of American originals like “When a Stranger Calls” with a very young Carol Kane and Colleen Dewhurst or the B & W “The Omen” (as much as I like Julia Stiles, the Omen remake was too bright and stylized, ditto When A Stranger Calls whose remake didn’t capture the claustrophobic tension or the depravity).
SithLady : Yes! Silent Hill was excellent and so atmospheric.
Anyone who’s a fan of the comedy/slasher/scary movie genre like the Scream series, grab some popcorn and treat yourself to Happy Death Day, my daughter & I got it on a whim and it was much better than anticipated 🙂

emmabird : I shuddered as I watched the move in broad daylight! I was so scared I tried to get my dogs to jump up on the bed to cuddle with me though they weren’t normally allowed. Most days I’m perfectly rational and don’t believe in the paranormal. That movie.. shudder!

Train to Busan is South Korean…
I loved The Descent, REC, The Rite, and Hush. Just watched Veronica and it was good. If you’re into fucked up shit over creatures and ghosts, French horror would be great for you.
