New job so I am still trying to adjust to my new schedule…. (Yh right)… But another blog post is finally here, Enjoy.
Horror…. This is one of the many genres for classifying movies. I had always wondered what qualifies a movie to fall under this genre and I have always guessed… “If it scares you enough, then it’s Horror”.
A serial killer on the escape from cops takes his soul and buries it into playful, seemingly good guy doll, Chucky. A single mother gives her son a beloved doll for his birthday, only to discover that it is possessed only after it has committed numerous murders. Once the adults accept boy’s story as truth, it’s too late.
2. Final Destination  98mins
A group of students board a plane to France on a school trip, when suddenly one of them gets a premonition that the plane will explode. They are thrown off the plane before it takes off, to their horror, the plane does in fact explode. Death now hunts them, as each of the surviving students fall victim and dies in some strange circumstances one by one.
3. Jeepers Creepers  90mins
A brother and sister driving home witness a mysterious person dumping something down a tunnel. Deciding to discover what was dumped down there; they discover a huge disturbing hideout full of modified bodies and set off to get help, unaware that the individual is now aware of who has been down the tunnel. They soon realize that their pursuer is not just a mysterious person, but something even more horrifying, who has more in store than they could possibly imagine.
I really loved this movie even though it did its job of scaring me (the idea of horror flick). The creature’s looks are definitely impressive. There was a follow up sequel to this one that I liked also… and that soundtrack Jeepers Creepers would definitely give you the chills each time you hear it after watching this movie.
4. Saw  103mins
Two men wake up to find out that they are chained to pipes set facing each other in a dirty bathroom in the secure lair of a serial killer who’s been nicknamed “Jigsaw”. The men must follow various rules and objectives if they wish to survive and win the deadly game set for them.
5. The Hills Have Eyes  107min
A family travelling through the great American southwest but their trip takes a detour into an area originally used by the U.S. Government for nuclear testing that was intended to be empty…or so they thought? They are stranded and the family soon realize that what seemed like a car casually breaking down, might actually be a trap. This trap might be perpetrated by the inhabitants of the site who aren’t pulling a prank, but are out to set up a gruesome massacre.
They might not do it for you as much as they did for me but these are certainly some good horror titles that I have enjoyed and would recommend for any one who loves the genre but hasn’t yet seen these. Other equally good movies that narrowly made it to my Top Five include, Drag me To Hell, Mama, The Conjuring, The Last Exorcism, Orphan, Insidious, Chernobyl Diaries and Hostel.
