"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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
