Baskin is pretty horrible! Turkish film, gory.

More of a thriller but I found Climax pretty horrifying.

I really liked St Maude recently but more atmospheric than scary - for fans of the Witch and the Lighthouse, more that sort of vibe.

How fucked up lol
A Serbian film is probably the worst I've seen, it's as fucked up as you can imagine.
The August Underground movies mordum and Penance are fucked up too.

I really liked Rob Zombie movies, House of 1000 corpses, devil's rejects, 31 and his Halloween remakes.

Also checkout, House of the devil, really well done in an 80s horror style.

Susperia og and remake are both great

For more conventional It Follows was good, and different but so is Eden Lake.

Older stuff texas chainsaw massacre, last house on the left American werewolf in London the thing and the evil deads are favourites.

You can't go wrong with basically anything that's been recommended so far.

If you haven't seen any of Psycho, The Shining or The Exorcist then I'd say do one of them.

Bit more messed up go for Texas Chainsaw.

It's always good checking off the classics, and these ones all totally deserve to be considered classics.

Is it comes at night scary? Got that recommended by a pal. I’m not the kinda person to watch trailers they always ruin everything.

The Devil's Backbone (early Guillermo del Toro)
Martyrs (Deep film and seriously fucked up)
It Follows (great genre piece)
First part of 'IT' (1990) schlocky but Tim Curry gives a masterclass in horror performance.

I thought Hereditary and Midsommar were both pretty shite to be fair.

Edit. Good shout for it follows. Still felt a weird sense of unease and had some proper odd dreams for about a month after watching it first time around.

Don’t think ‘enjoyed’ is the right word for this one, but I did think it was a great watch.

Same goes for The house that Jack built, not the easiest watch but a great bit of acting from Matt Dillon.

These are a step too far IMo. Mate of mine used to bang on about these types of movies. I’ve never seen any of the above in full, but what I have seen of them is probably some of the most fucked up shit I’ve seen in movies. These are mentally scarring type movies rather than horrors.

On "A Serbian Film". It's a movie, detach yourself from the fact it ain't real and it's just absurb to the point where it just seems "funny".

I mean it was only made to see the limits of how far you could go in a film.



I'll put up a list of my favourite horrors/scary stufff later.

on the topic of horror movies being real it's always super uncomfortable watching something when you know the animals actually got hurt. Or even in just arthouse movies from the 70s etc.

Even with the disclaimer at the end that it was done 'humanely', seeing tens of kangaroos get domed in Wake in Fright was horrible!

Like Jodorowsky blowing up a load of frogs with dynamite in Holy Mountain. So senseless Laughing out loud

absolutely - can't stand that. I had to turn off 'The House That Jack Built' after it reverts back to his childhood and he chops the foot off a duckling with some wire cutters. would that have been real?

Nah, I thought that when I first saw it as it looked so real but it was cleverly faked. I highly doubt you’d get away with intentionally harming an animal for the purpose of film these days.
