Off the top of my head -- Signs.

I'm not much of a horror fan but there have been several over the last 20 years that I thought were very good.

My favorites are The Conjuring, A Quiet Place, Martyrs and Get Out. I always tell people The Conjuring is one of my favorite newer horror movies as it's one of the few I found genuinely scary. I also really love psychological thrillers, like Black Swan.

It's not available on Blu-ray, and it was only given a physical release by way of the After Dark Horrorfest DVDS, but it can be seen for free on Amazon Prime (or at least it could last month).

Most horror movies don't actually honest-to-goodnessly scare me, because I'm not six years old anymore, but this one got under my skin pretty well. Mostly because of hidden things in the photographs shown in the story.


The German Blu-ray is English friendly and can be played on Region A.

Sauna (2008) for me. As for why, I'll just post an old review I wrote.

[Show spoiler]Following the end of the decades-long war between Russia and Sweden, a group of soldiers from both countries is assigned the task of defining a new border. Among this group are Eerik and Knut, two brothers who couldn't be more different. The former is a vicious soldier who has been fighting his entire life, while the latter is a civilized collegian who came along due to his expertise in crafting maps. On a scouting run separate from the rest of the group, the two encounter a farmer and his daughter. Bad things happen and the brothers rejoin the expedition the next morning, but what transpired at the remote farm leads to severe feelings of guilt for Knut. Continuing their trek across the barren terrain, the men eventually come across a mysterious town where no such place should logically exist. Stranger still, something seems very off with the inhabitants and, more importantly, with the sauna that stands just outside of the village's reach.

Sauna is a picture that festered in my mind long after my initial viewing. I didn't know what to expect going in, but I came out thinking it was one of the most intriguing films I had seen in years. It boasts a strong period setting and some effectively unsettling moments (all about that moment Knut catches a glimpse of a figure across the swamp) set against a mood of pure despair. The characters here are as cold and gloomy as the atmosphere which surrounds them. The acting is resoundingly strong across the board, most notably that of Ville Virtanen as the bloodthirsty Eerik. His character is that of a murderous sociopath who has never known anything but war, yet Virtanen instills the part with a certain sense of empathy and regret underneath the seething hatred. We are also privy to cinematography that, while dark and drained of life, has an exquisite beauty to it. You really feel the chilled air right along with the characters. I'm still not sure that I fully understand everything that goes on in the film, but I've enjoyed speculating. There are numerous layers here to keep the mind busy with interpretation.

All in all, a fascinating film that is rewarding in more ways than I can count. Like it's core theme, guilt, it sticks with you.

30 Days of Night. I still find the look of the vampires unsettling out of all the vampire movies. I remember feeling the dread, hopelessness, the sense of feeling trapped that the small group of survivors were feeling while in the attic.

The runner up for me would be The Conjuring 2. That was some haunting.

Wow! Just wow. I can't get over that everyone has been wrong as no one has mentioned this......



I dare you to watch this alone at night and not have the hair on the back of your neck stand up. Creepy!

David Lynch often gives his films a heightened nightmare quality and trades in horrific imagery - it's as if he's penetrated his own dark subconscious and visualized it for the screen - that transcends mere horror tropes (that's his genius). You also get the unshakable sense that something truly sinister is at work here - you can't explain it or beat it, and it's going to engulf us all (most conventional horror films should be so lucky to convey this feeling as effectively as Lynch does). I'd also note Lynch's use of sound design and music is unremmitingly eerie and brilliant - again, most horror films should be so lucky in being this aurally effective. If Lynch seeks to unsettle, disturb and at points horrify you, how is that any different from what a "conventional" horror filmmaker is trying to do? For being too limited in your perception of horror, I'm afraid that assignation with the Cowboy is all yours...

Also, that scene in the back parking lot at Winkie's is arguably the best damn jump scare after 2000.

Of course, all horror is subjective to an extent but I will close with this: The last scene in Lynch's final episode of TWIN PEAKS: THE RETURN unnerved and creeped me out in a way the majority of horror films I've seen over the past several years were unable to do in their entirety.
I'll grant you the scene at Winkie's as a jump scare, but Mulholland is more a tragedy than a horror story.
[Show spoiler]It's Lynch puncturing the Hollywood dream and facade, and yes he does it by including nightmarish elements (I don't believe the movie has a true 'reality' storyline as everything seems like an interpretation). The sound design is eerie and unsettlng, but it's there because what we are shown is fantasy. And the truth lurks around the Winkie's back alley corner.


By the way if we were to include TV shows, I'd have to agree on the inclusion of the final episode of Twin Peaks: the Return and also episode 8. The man is a genre of his own.

I say Mulholland Drive is definitely a horror movie and it gets my vote!

I'm finding this much harder than the sci-fi one. But it's probably a toss up between Sleep Tight, High Tension and Midsommar the Director's Cut for me.

High Tension is fantastic...and then it isn't. I put it in the "almost" category.

The thing that most people dislike about High Tension is the ending. Being often a contrary sort, I think it's bold and brilliant!

Lot of good picks. I'll go with The Babadook off the top of my head since that hasn't been mentioned. One isn't enough.

If you have not seen this do yourself a favor and watch it. Turn off all the lights, crank the sound up and enjoy. It is just creepy AF.
