Recommend me a legitimately scary film /x/.
I'm talking first time seeing this bitch levels of terror.
What's this? I can't find it on imdb.
Yeah I've looked through there but i want a personal recommendation. I've also seen a lot of them already.
Yeah the bit where QT is sucking that woman's foot gave me nightmares. More like this.
OP again. These are the horror films that stick in my mind that I actually remember being scared by:
They just all had certain scenes which got my blood pumping, not a lot of horror films seem to do it.
I used to go on here quite a lot when I was like 16. Then I realised that it was just full of unhelpful people repeating the same jokes over and over.
Now I'm 22. I just want to watch a good horror film, and it seems nothing has changed. I've been recommended a fake film, a comedy/action film and been told to look for myself in the sticky...
as for recent movies, the babadook and as above so below were pretty good imo
but real hardcore shit is pretty rare in horror movies, perhaps stuff like august underground might fit your taste altough i havent seen it yet
Old fag, so I'm gonna go old school. You seem to like atmospheric slow burn stuff with moments of white knuckle wtf, so I'm going to recommend
Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978 version)
Don't Look Now
for more modern fare, try
The Crazies (really underrated, imo)
These are the only two from the whole 'from the creators of insidious' range of films that I thought were scary. Sinister, Dark Skies and The Conjuring were all shit, but Insidious and Annabelle both made my heart race, so I consider them good. Insidious 2 was a good sequel, but not a good horror film. In fact, it wasn't a horror film, it was a thriller.
This looks like it could be promising.
I might try and watch one of these two. I'm guessing August underground is one of those films you'll remember for months afterwards like Irreversible? If so. I've only got enough mental sanity to deal with one of those per year.
Yes, you got me down to a T. The key to horror is the bits between the scary bits that make the scary bits even scarier.
I've seen Don't Look Now and I think I saw that version of IotBS before, but The Changeling looks good.
And the other three I haven't seen any of, so I'm going to add them all to my list.
August Underground is sort of the opposite of Irreversible. Both are visceral endurance tests in that they make the viewer suffer through horrible things, but while Irreversible attempts to create empathy for its characters, AU shows you how debased, ignorant, dumb, and ultimately boring most sociopaths are. There's no story, no characters, no point. Just the most disgusting and violent things its creator could depict. It's not a movie; it's the portfolio of an edgelord special effects artist.
As said i havent seen it but since op was talking 'bout terror i thought i might recommend it.
As for slow burning horror my personal favorite is the others, that shit fucking terrified me when I first saw it, might be because of my rather young age back then but still a good movie with a total mindfuck ending
Kill List is pretty good. I liked it, though it isn't really as much a horror movie as it is a thriller.
The Innkeepers is a little underrated.
Let the Right One In is a cross between horror and heartwarming holiday family film. I recommend it. If you want to watch it in English, Let Me In is the English remake which is actually just as good as the original.
Darknet is a pretty good TV show that is basically V/H/S in TV Show form. If you can get around the blatant misuse of computer terminology in the last episode of the season, go watch it.
Speaking of V/H/S, if you haven't seen them, close this tab and watch them. They are both on Netflix.
V/H/S 1 and 2 are creepy as shit, but don't watch the third...it is so shit I couldn't beleive it.
My all time favourite is "Poughkeepsie Tapes"
Couldn't get it off from my mind...WARNING it is incredibly disturbing!
