Horror movie history has the same age as the age film history. Be it wild animals or the mystery of the unknown, we have always been terrified of what we do not understand just a puss filled face with a bit of blood on it.
This genre has evolved itself according to our fears. From the crappy faces to the flashy scares to the psychological thrillers, this genre has done it all.
So take a deep breath and ready to watch these terrifying movies.
The movie is set up in a post apocalyptic world where zombies live like regular, non-infected people. The retroviral drug that enables them to live normal lives does not cure them and needs to be taken every day. However, trouble brews when anti- return groups attack and rumours of the drugs running out spreads, leading again to a society of chaos. The movie has the cliche zombie scares but complements it with a good storyline.
This is the remake of the 1981-cult movie of the same name. The movie revolves around five 20-years-olds who find themselves holed up in a cabin away from civilisation. Much to their luck, or the lack of it, they stumble upon the Book of the Dead and end up summoning dormant demons from the nearby forest, that possess the kids one by one, till there is only one left to fight the undead.
When Aaron, a cinematographer comes across an online ad "$1,000 for the day. Filming service. Discretion is appreciated", he readily jumps onto it. Well, because, he is broke AF. When he reaches the location and meets his subject, he realises that he has been led into some kind of trap. The intense interplay between Aaron and Josef exceeds expectations at every turn.
The Cabin in the Woods
First things first. Joss Whedon is the writer here. Secondly, the movie is set in a cabin in the woods and 5 friends who decide to camp inside it. And everything goes to shit. But there is a little twist that you won't be wrapping your heads around.
The Taking of Deborah Logan
The Taking of Deborah Logan is strictly for the fans of found-footage movie genre and it doesn't disappoint. Deborah Logan is an old woman suffering from Alzheimer's, living with her daughter, who is also her caretaker. The shit storm starts when the unexplained phenomenon starts occurring worsening her health. Apart from the cliched third act, the movie really holds up.
A former cop turned security guard finds himself in a previously burnt mall with mirrors that seem to trap the memories of the victims of the fire that killed them. The movie starts with an interesting premise but poor direction somehow turns it into a mildly dull affair. That being said, it still perfectly suits the genre and the climax leaves it with an open ending.
A group of friends finds themselves venturing deep into the streets of New York during a monster attack. The movie does not disappoint as New York turns into a war zone and not the Avengers kind.
