I've easily seen... well, a lot of fucking horror movies.

To date I would say 1% are great must watch films, 10% are good and the remaining 39% are OK and the final 50% are utter garbage.

I keep all the really good horror movies and outside of the classics (last 10-20 years) there have only been a handful of movies that stuck out to me.

Sinister
Evil Dead


Some of the other notables in my collection at John Carpenter's The Thing, The Exorcist, Child's Play (I was very surprised how well this held up, and how humorous it was), The Shining, Alien/s. Then it goes into just good films like a first viewing of Saw, The Blair Witch Project, Cabin in the Woods, The Conjuring, The Ring and Insidious.

I've dabbled with posting reviews somewhere but I really can't be fucked to care enough.

One caveat to note is that horror films based off rape/torture shock scenes and nothing more (like The Hills Have Eyes, for example) rank extremely poorly for me. You raped 'em. Good job. Where's the fucking content? Asshole.

Nina Forever
Cool movie. Top 10%. Interesting premise. Little twists. A movie that doesn't go to far down the comedy flick but sticks to the true horror nature of it - almost aware of itself. The makeup and affects are superb. Particularly one scene where with a broken leg just sitting there jutting out all askew from the actor.
Solid flick. Definitely recommend.

Green Room
I actually threw this in my rare saved folder for later viewing. Absolutely great movie. Not really scary and had me wondering the entire time. You make it in over an hour before you see any gore and the entire punk/Nazi's/skinheads motif they have going on is pretty intense. Total new feeling to underground music scene I haven't had the pleasure of getting into. The entire time I watched the movie I had a feeling as if I was nawing on some steak that was cooked on charcoals with no grill on it - just literally threw onto hot coals. Getting little bits of charcoal in my mouth as I gnaw on the meat. Delicious. Thoroughly enjoyed the cinematography.

Both films had great cinematography with wonderful framing of shots. Similar to Sinister. Really cool stuff.

Also bonus points for Nina Forever with the unnamed soundtrack songs being Dresden Dolls.

Good stuff.

The Evil Dead trilogy
the original Halloween
Friday the 13th franchise
Nightmare on Elm Street franchise
original Texas Chainsaw Massacre and the remake was quite good

Those are a few off the top of my head. I don't keep track of Horror movies like I did in my younger years.

Let me preface this by saying that the last 5-6 horror films I've watched in these few weeks have all fallen in the top 10% good category... extremely abnormal. Normally 9 out of 10 are extreme shite.

The Loved Ones
Nifty, quirky, Australian film. Similar to Wyrmwood if you've seen it. Starts off extremely chaotic for 10 min's and you have no idea what the fuck you're watching but it's kind of like a behind the scenes of a chess tournament watching the players set up the pieces. Then the movie gets going and it's a slasher, torture, homicidefest that's beautifully done. Truly enjoyed it but the first 10min made me think it would be a complete shitfest.

Also, bewbs.

Berlin Syndrome
Spoiler: Stockholm Syndrome.

Another good one. I was expecting a rapist movie for the sake of shock but what I got was a load of suspense. Has the girl from Light's Out which is a plus in my book. Lots of nice little callbacks to the story throughout the movie with regards to a previous "lover". I think the most difficult part with movies like this is being able to put myself in the position of the woman. It's so fucking difficult for me to understand.

This movie gets bonus points for the realistic ass shitting scenes where she gets up from the bed after being tied down all day with the brown shit running up and down her back. Totally loved the attention to detail.

Moar bewbs.

The Invitation
This one had a weird start and some sort of weird relationship with the woman/wife/thing but if you ignore that like the main character pretty much ignores her the entire movie it's great. Plays off a modern day 2010's family living in the Hollywood Hills white ritzy thing. One of the few movies to keep me entertained the entire time based off of the plot. Nothing crazy happens until an hour in and even then it's rather tame but still gets the suspense and blood pumping.

And lastly, bush and brief nip slip.

Stay tuned for Raw and Attack the Block...

Saw that as well few weeks ago! I found it entertaining but super odd. Kind of felt like a Stephen King film. I loved the older feel to the movie and felt they got a lot of the good 'ol days right. Super cliche movie but done right. Had that old grainy feeling like a wooden desk that's a bit rough. I ended up storing this not in the 10% good but in the not-shit 30%-40%.

Yes I loved the retro feel of the film, older horrors (although this was 2009 I believe) have a certain eerie feeling to them that modern CGI films lack...

Have you seen “Hereditary”? I’m looking forward to seeing it because it’s been hyped up

Not yet. It's on my to-do list. I won't be watching anything 2018 until 2019 or so. I'm a year behind.

That's a pretty high rating for a horror movie.

Although she played the part well... I can't help but imagining that my dear old friend Jack couldn't have snagged a better woman.

I also loved the book's version of "Danny needs his medicine" and wish it had played a part in the movie more. However, I prefer the movie much more than the book.
