The sequels were way too gory for us, but everyone knows that the original “Saw” movie is just an amazing horror film! The movie uses an interesting tactic. By being more restrained and less graphic, it allows most of the real horror to happen in our wicked minds!
“Saw” also has one of the best jump-scare sequences. If this one didn’t frighten you, you should get that checked out. The movie poses a terrible question, how far would you be willing to go to save your own life?
Shaun of the Dead
This horror flick follows our hero, Shaun, as he learns that most of his town's population has been turned into flesh-eating cannibals.
He plans on saving his mom and girlfriend, but things don't really go as he planned them to. If you appreciate comedy you'll be delighted to know this movie is funny at times! Still, this movie isn't just a parody of the genre, it also manages to scare us to the core.
Dawn of the Dead
The movie follows four apocalypse survivors who find themselves in a mall filled with zombies. They realize the mall isn't the safest place for them and while they try to find a way out, all hell breaks loose.
It's not the zombies themselves that make this film so delightfully horrific, it is actually the fact that even after they have died, they are all heading towards the mall. The horror here is that of knowing that this is probably what we look like on Black Friday.
The Witch follows a Puritan family who settles at the edge of a forest. Throughout the film, supernatural horrors affect each member of the family, as they slowly succumb to the witchcraft that dominates the forest.
By the end of the movie, the eldest daughter (played by Anya Taylor-Joy) is the only one left. She’s forced to kill her own mother in self-defense, and the rest of her family members have been taken away by supernatural forces. Although she manages to survive, she still steps into the forest, proving that no one can truly escape the witchcraft that resides there.
"Split" is a strange and yet very interesting movie, which received somewhat mixed reviews among some critics and audiences. The dark and twisted movie stars James McAvoy as the mind of more than 20 different people living inside one body (with multiple personality syndrome, aka split personality disorder). He kidnaps a few teenage girls, and chaos ensues as his personalities battle each other.
The drama/thriller was created by horror master M. Night Shyamalan, which explains why it’s so creepy and odd but also unquestionably brilliant. And McAvoy’s performance alone is worth watching the film for.
