Alright, let’s get to it!
- Insidious – This is one scary haunted creepy tale. It comes to us from the writer of the original SAW movie, and surrounds an incident that involves a special child who just can’t get the demons out of his life or home. The movie recalls such classic creepers as Poltergeist, The Exorcist and The Omen. Get it!
- House of the Devil – This one is a throwback to 70s horror classics that surrounds a girl who takes a babysitting job that creates a whole new host of problems once the guardians of the house leave.
- Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil – This is one of the best horror comedies to come down the pike since Evil Dead. It turns the Hillbilly Survival Horror genre on it’s head to hilarious effect. Don’t miss it!
- Hellraiser – The classic Clive Barker horror tale that mixes mysticism and gore to amazing effect. Watch it again and celebrate one of the best bloody 80s horror films ever made.
- The Omen – Children are so creepy when they want to kill you. They’re even worse when they’re actually spawn of the devil! One of the big classics of the horror genre starring Gregory Peck.
- Candyman – Call his name three times and suffer in ways you never dreamed of. This modern horror tale takes place in Cabrini Green slums outside of Chicago and will make your skin crawl!
- Let The Right One In – One of modern horrors’ big reboots on a genre that was tired and too stylized for it’s own good – vampires are portrayed as evil children in the Nordic winter cold, causing havoc, yet keeping a tender love story at its core. Amazing.
- Outcast – Modern day witch clan wars are happening in Scotland’s slums, but one witch is hiding a terrible secret that’s causing chaos. Who will stop her?
- The Signal – 3 writers and directors give their versions of what happens in society when a strange electronic signal causes people to lose grip of reality and begin attacking strangers. It balances violence, gore and humor in a way that hasn’t been done before.
- Slither – If you’re ready to get grossed out while you laugh, there’s nearly no better modern movie to do it than Slither. An alien nest falls to Earth, and causes a small town to lose all sense of manners as a swarm of parasitic slugs turn people into a meat-craving, person killing mob. You’ll laugh and scream all night.
- Children of the Corn – One of Stephen King’s most famous stories from a short anthology, this one follows a couple who accidentally come across a small Nebraska town with a killer child clan who worship “He Who Moves Behind the Rows” and demands sacrifice for his mercy.
- Wakewood – Classic horror film studio Hammer comes back big time with this modern tale of pagan clans who petition demons to keep their children alive, with no idea what they pay for in the afterlife. Creepy and terrible things unfold – watch it!
