Posted by Greg Butler On October - 22 - 2016

If you’ve read the last blog (and you should have) the ratings hasn’t  changed and the selections are based on the familiar and the less familiar or rather not the usual fare other blogs constantly trot every year, so a quick reminder to categorized the tone of each film.

SCARY FUN

DOWNRIGHT DISTURBING

CHILLER SUSPENSE

OLD SCHOOL CLASSIC

So let’s get that popcorn a burning and the diet coke flowing and get into the  chill factor.

 

The Children: 2008

Jake Hathaway and Rafiella Brooks in The Children (2008)

Parenticide murders aplenty by tiny tots in this bad seed send off.

Chiller suspense

 

Dog soldiers: 2002

A lone  military  patrol squad try to evade being eaten by lycanthropized canines. Let the ass kickin’ begin.

Scary  fun

 

Videodrome: 1983

Hard to describe,  a kind of a philosophical  ideology  about media and television and its effect on a changing society. Whatever; it’s a gorefest with great FX, brought to you by body horror master himself David Cronenberg.

Old school classic

 

A Siberian film: 2010

Necrophilia, pedophilia, mix murder with sadism and a quick dose of nihilism and you have story about a former male porn star cursed  with an insatiable  bloodlust, screw the explanation of this film being some sort of political metaphor, this isn’t  Salo on that level but it will test your tolerance.

Downright disturbing

 

The Cell: 2000

An arty version of the Nightmare Elm street kind, Jennifer ( on the block) Lopez, uses high tech science to peer into the mind of comatose  serial killer Vincent D’ onofrio. Bizarre and gruesome images unlock clues to a missing victim in danger as time runs out.  It looks better than it sounds.

Chiller suspense

 

Orphan: 2009

Unsuspecting parents seemingly adopts a prim  and proper little girl….. that has a sweet tooth for murder, stay for the ending it’s a head-tripper.

Scary fun

 

Megan is missing: 2011

A precautionary tale  done in found footage style about the dangers of online meetings and the tragic consequences of that result. Yeah you need a drink after this.

Downright disturbing

 

Unfriended: 2015

Exposes the destructive nature  of teens in social media, only to have it come back to bite them in the proverbial ass. It is somewhat  found footage but it works better in the media device in which you watch it, best to view this Skype like thriller on a PC than your television, it’ll  for a few seconds give off an illusionary  feel that your part of it.

Chiller suspense

 

The Haunting 1961:

Forget Jan Debont’s bullshit remake and take this atmospheric black and white version, about paranormal investigators doing what they do best, Investigate.  Director Robert Wise gives an eerie and moody ambiance that creeps in the back of your mind.

Old school classic
