Okay so, let’s step aside from the classics, Annabelle, The Conjuring, Child’s play, Curse of Chucky, The Grudge Series and Insidious and many others.
Here’s a list of movies that spook you up and leave a deep impression into your memory:
- The Lazarus Effect (2015)
So there ain’t really that awesome about this film where a few scientists try to play God and try to bring back dead bodies to film. Guess what? Yeah, they do end up bringing a dog and woman back to life, but yeah the brought-back-to-life creatures are after the scientists’ life instead. A damn cliché. But one thing that’s definitely spooky is that dog. THAT DAMN DOG, It still gives me the creeps.
- Don’t Breathe (2016)
Okay, so how scary can an old blind man living all alone in a house be? Yeah no, don’t understand the old geezer because he’s gonna scare the life out of ya in this film.
- The Silence of the Lambs (1991)
No ghosts, no poltergeists? Yeah that’s not needed at all, the film itself is so damn spooky. Why? A cannibal. A psychotic cannibal. Yes, Dr. Hannibal. That itself is enough to know how creepy this film is.
- Carrie (2013)
Poor Carrie. Bullied. Strict single parent. Harassed by her school girls. But she’s got what no one else has. Telekinesis. Yes. And she gets her revenge. This is a must-see.
- 30 Days of Night (2007)
Who doesn’t love cold freezing winter? No sun. Dark out. And Blood-suckers. Fine combo. That itself is enough to scare the hell out of us.
- Unfriended (2014)
In this era of facebook, this film is damn scary. Some kids are haunted by the facebook account of a dead anti-social girl who was harassed by the whole school and her ghost is best to avenge her. Imagine a facebook account of a recently dead person who knows all your secrets and you cannot seem to block it no matter how hard you try. And they’re dead-bent on soiling your name.
- Black Water (2007)
If you don’t already despise crocodiles, you will after watching this film.
- House of Wax (2005)
A whole mansion made of wax with real people made into wax statues? Yeah, The freaks behind this master piece are sure to scare the hell out of you.
- The Babadook (2017)
“DOOK” “DOOK” “DOOK” If you hear that, well just know HE is here and you are screwed.
