ontd

But that doesn't mean this list is filled with direct to dvd bin horror movies..

Enjoy, and please don't judge my choices (or my english!) 💖

evil dead

The Evil Dead (1981) & Evil Dead II (1987)
Note: okay i know this is technically two movies but they are sequels so I count it as one :P



Why it's one of my fave: Evil Dead was one of those old film I thought I wouldn't like, I was so sure it was just overrated 80's horror trash that people just convince themselves they liked because your supposed to like it (youknow like 2001: A Space Odyssey) because it's a ''cult-classic''. I don't why I thought that but I did and guess what I freaking loved it, and the second movie is even better! (never seen the third one :/)

About:

Evil Dead: Five college students take time off to spend a peaceful vacation in a remote cabin. A book and audio tape is discovered, and its evil is found to be powerful once the incantations are read out loud. The friends find themselves helpless to stop the evil as it takes them one by one, with only one survivor left with the evil dead and desperately tries to fight to live until morning.

Evil Dead 2: Ashley Williams travels to a secluded cabin in the woods with his girlfriend Linda where they find a tape recording of a professor and a book of evil. This unleashes a bunch of evil spirits that constantly terrorize Ash. Meanwhile a journalist comes to the area to study the book of evil. Ash and her end up having to survive this swarm of evil until morning comes.

troll

Trollhunter (2010)



Why it's one of my fave: I love found footage/mockumentaries films, it's one of my favorite sub horror genres and founding a found footage/mockumentary movie that's about Scandinavian folktales (folklores??) ofc it's gonna become one of my favorite horror movies!

About: A group of students investigates a series of mysterious bear killings, but learns that there are much more dangerous things going on. They start to follow a mysterious hunter, learning that he is actually a troll hunter.

the ring

The Ring (2002)



Why it's one of my fave: The Ring was one of my first horror movies I saw that really scared me, like every time I see something that looks like a person with long black hair in the dark (you know when you trying to sleep and you look around in your room and you see that chair that you just stack clothes on and it kinda look like a person?) I immediately think it Samara #scarredforlife

About: 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.

28 288
2888 28888

28 Days Later...(2002)



Why it's one of my fave: Because Cillian Murphy is in it and it's a really great movie!

About: A powerful virus escapes from a British research facility. Transmitted in a drop of blood and devastating within seconds, the virus locks those infected into a permanent state of murderous rage. Within 28 days the country is overwhelmed and a handful of survivors begin their attempts to salvage a future, little realising that the deadly virus is not the only thing that threatens them.

as above

As Above, So Below (2014)



Why it's one of my fave: I just really like this film, I don't really know how to explain why I like it..sorry

About: Miles of twisting catacombs lie beneath the streets of Paris, the eternal home to countless souls. When a team of explorers ventures into the uncharted maze of bones, they uncover the dark secret that lies within this city of the dead. A journey into madness and terror, As Above, So Below reaches deep into the human psyche to reveal the personal demons that come back to haunt us all.

Carrie

Carrie (1976)



Why it's one of my fave: You don't have to know why this is one of my favorite horror film you just need to accept the fact that it is <3

About: This classic horror movie based on Stephen King's first novel stars Sissy Spacek as Carrie White, a shy, diffident teenager who is the butt of practical jokes at her small-town high school. Her blind panic at her first menstruation, a result of ignorance and religious guilt drummed into her by her fanatical mother, Margaret, only causes her classmates' vicious cruelty to escalate, despite the attentions of her overly solicitous gym teacher. Finally, when the venomous Chris Hargenson engineers a reprehensible prank at the school prom, Carrie lashes out in a horrifying display of her heretofore minor telekinetic powers.

Blair Witch

The Blair Witch Project (1999)



Why it's one of my fave: The Blair Witch Project is the film that made me love found footage films, I know a lot of people think this movie is overrated but I personally think this is an amazing horror movie and even if you don't like found footage film you should watch the movie that popularized the found footage technique.

About: Three film students travel to Maryland to make a student film about a local urban legend... The Blair Witch. The three went into the woods on a two day hike to find the Blair Witch, and never came back. One year later, the students film and video were found in the woods. The footage was compiled and made into a movie. The Blair Witch Project.

Shaun of the Dead

Shaun of the Dead (2002)



Why it's one of my fave: Me and my sister used to watch this all the time and it was the first horror-comedy film I saw, since then I knew that horror doesn't always mean scary, it can be funny too!

About: Shaun doesn't have a very good day, so he decides to turn his life around by getting his ex to take him back, but he times it for right in the middle of what may be a zombie apocalypse... But for him, it's an opportunity to show everyone he knows how useful he is by saving them all. All he has to do is survive... And get his ex back.

scream screamm

Scream (1996)



Why it's one of my fave: Scream is just a horror classic, you can't watch this movie without falling in love with it, I still watch this movie during Halloween (and everyone know that Halloween isn't just one day, it's the entry month of October!)

About: 1 year after her mother's death, Sydney Prescott (Neve Campbell), and her friends started experiencing some strange phone calls. They later learned the calls were coming from a crazed serial killer, in a white faced mask and a large black robe, looking for revenge. His phone calls usually consist of many questions, the main one being: Whats your favorite scary movie? Along with many scary movie trivia, ending with bloody pieces of innocent lives scattered around the small town of Woodsboro.

Eyes Without a Face

Eyes Without a Face (1960)



Why it's one of my fave: One night many years ago I was lurking on youtube and came across this film, I was really sure it was boring old horror film that I could watch to pass the time but I really fell for this movie. It's great, 100% recommend.

About: After causing an accident that left his daughter Christiane severely disfigured, the brilliant surgeon Dr. Génessier works tirelessly to give the girl a new face. He does so however by kidnapping young women and attempting face transplants. He has been woefully unsuccessful to date. The doctor's world begins to collapse around him when his daughter realizes just what he has been doing.

Also some of my fave horror movies: The Cabin in the Woods (2012), The Descent (2005), Saw (2004), House of 1000 Corpses (2003), Eden Lake (2008), Lake Mungo (2008), The Others (2001), You're Next (2011) & like all horror classics.
