23 Awesome Horror flicks that will leave you with that uneasy feeling in your stomach. Which is your favorite? Comment below.
"8mm'' is a dark, dank journey into the underworld of snuff films, undertaken by a private investigator who is appalled and changed by what he finds.
"The Skeleton Key," I think there may be a couple of loopholes, but to describe them would betray too much of the plot, which depends on a series of escalating surprises. Besides, a movie that goes to this much trouble to work out its cosmology must have the answers.
this is a very spooky movie i like this movie because it was more scary than bloody and gory this was very intresting and had a good ending
Men Behind the Sun came out in 1988 well after the boom of exploitation cinema had come and gone. T. F. Mou set out to create a film depicting Japanese war crimes during World War II. He focuses the story on Unit 731 and the grotesque experiments that were performed on Chinese captives by General Shiro Ishii.
1408: You never see the actual evil entity- the room itself is evil, and provided most of us spend a lot of time in rooms, it makes you paranoid. Honestly, one of the very few films that left me with a deeps sense of unease after watching it.
The Descent. This one is one of my all time favorites. ive always had a bit of a thing for underground worlds, been building a fantasy novel around it for years. I feel like this movie is criminally underrated, it was even unsettling before they encountered anything down there just by the claustrophobia of it. even the personal issues between the characters felt interesting to me and the resolution of it was brutal, and usually those side stories just annoy me.
Martyr’s is the quintessential “feel uneasy” for days, if not weeks after watching it.
Yes it belongs in the “gore porn” genre of horror but it’s well worth the watch because unlike the Saw sequels, Hostel, The Hills Have Eyes and any other entries in this genre, Martyr’s does well to give us a really strong story that has you questioning what actually happened at the end.
Lights Out fucked me up pretty good. Our house is really dark, even with all the curtains open, and SO made me watch it in bed at like 2am. I made him keep the lamp on till I fell asleep.
Here is a gaudy vomitorium of a movie, violent, nauseating and really a pretty good example of its genre. If you are a hardened horror movie fan capable of appreciating skill and wit in the service of the deliberately disgusting, "The Devil's Rejects" may exercise a certain strange charm. If on the other hand you close your eyes if a scene gets icky, here is a movie to see with blinders on, because it starts at icky and descends relentlessly through depraved and nauseating to the embrace of road kill.
Rachel Keller is a journalist investigating a videotape that may have killed four teenagers (including her niece). There is an urban legend about this tape: the viewer will die seven days after watching it. If the legend is correct, Rachel will have to run against time to save her son's and her own life.
A widower takes an offer to screen girls at a special audition, arranged for him by a friend to find him a new wife. The one he fancies is not who she appears to be after all.
The Mist. The ending made me so uncomfortable.
Frailty is such an under appreciated gem of a horror film. It’s ending was so powerful because you never even considered that Bill Paxton’s character was anything but insane.
Sinister. Fantastic sound design, fantastically eerie music that sets the scene, and a perfect example of implying gruesome violence rather than showing it.
ALIEN. I remember once after watching it, I was looking for my cat in my house and she ran into the garage, at night, where the overhead light is out and was like…. Yeah, there’s something familiar about this scenario.
Goodnight Mommy. The entire theatre sat in silence for a good ten minutes and it was like you could visibly see the “???” coming out of every one of our heads.
The Thing. Was it Childs or not? We won’t know for sure. Although it says that Childs was not the thing in the “canon” game.
It Follows. One of the greatest things about the movie is they mixed seasons and time periods to create an unsettling feeling because the setting isn’t logical. There are 50s tvs, 70s cars and cards from the early twentieth century. The shell e-reader functions like a kindle, but has no modern equivalent. It also seems to be the only object that has modern technology in a house that has wallpaper and cord phones. The characters spend time outdoors in pools but in the same week wear winter coats while everyone else in the background dresses lightly. The filmmakers really brought it all together to create an eerie sense of unease.
Exorcism of Emily Rose – I don’t know why but there was some weird uneasiness after the movie. The worst part is that after watching it, I suddenly woke in the middle of the night and it was 3:00 AM, I was scared to death.
Misery. Because people like Annie Wilkes exist, and prolonged, personal hostage/torture situations just like that have happened, are happening and will happen again… and could happen to any of us.
