6 Horrifying Movies You Cannot Miss This Halloween
Welcome to Halloween! A special night where we summon up our innermost fears while eating sweets.
These are our suggestions for the night that so many like. Let us warn you now: prepare to be afraid, very afraid ...
Raw is a crude, symbolic and erotic film, according to some critics. A French-Belgian horror film that gives no concessions to the spectator and that takes them into the cannibalistic world of Justine and her family ...
The film, by director and screenwriter Julia Ducournau, premiered at the Cannes Film Festival International Critics' Week section at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival where it won the FIPRESCI Prize.
It is also worth noting that when it debuted at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival, some spectators were seen fainting because of the graphic violence.
It Follows is an American supernatural psychological horror film that tells the story of a teenage girl who is pursued by a supernatural being after having sex with her boyfriend.
The film premiered at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival and received very good reviews, which praised the intelligence, originality and horror that entertained the viewers. The way it slightly rewrote the canons of modern horror films was also one of the comments that this film received.
What we do in the shadows
What We Do in the Shadows is a vampire story told in the form of a documentary set in Wellington, New Zealand. Of course, the story isn’t as simple as you would imagine, because these vampires are somewhat complex:
- First, there are four and the oldest is eight thousand years old.
- Second, the eldest of them does not look very human.
- Third, they have a human servant who aspires to be a vampire.
- Fourth, they are vampires unsuited to the reality of the 21st century.
Debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2014, What We Do in the Shadows was very well received by critics who praised the fresh, clever and funny approach to this genre of movies.
The Woman in Black
If someone asks you which British horror movie has been the blockbuster in the last 20 years, you can say it's this one.
Based on Susan Hill's eponymous novel, The Woman in Black tells the story of bizarre events taking place in the locality of Crythin Gifford, where a young London lawyer is involved.
With lukewarm acceptance by critics, The Woman in Black had an excellent reception from the public who saw this supernatural horror film, starring Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and Ciarán Hinds (Game of Thrones).
Let the Right One In
Let the Right One In is a Swedish romantic horror film directed by Tomas Alfredson. The story is based on a novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist and was adapted to the cinema by the author of the book.
Critically acclaimed, this film tells the story of a 12-year-old bullying victim who develops a friendship with a boy of the same age. Problem: this boy is a vampire.
Let the Right One In has won some awards, such as the "Founders Award for Best Narrative Feature" at the 2008 Tribeca Film Festival; and the European Fantastic Film Festivals Federation's 2008 Méliès d'Or (Golden Méliès) for the "Best European Fantastic Feature Film", as well as four Guldbagge Awards from the Swedish Film Institute and the Saturn Award for Best International Film.
Addams Family Values
The Addams Family series is a classic from the 1960s. After 30 years, in the 1990s, it was recovered in the form of two films, which include appearances by great names like Raul Julia (Kiss of the Spider Woman), Anjelica Huston (The Royal Tenenbaums) and Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future).
The Addams Family Values is the second film that revives the history of this peculiar and somewhat macabre family. This time the Addams family is forced to hire a nanny to take care of their new member, Pubert. However, this nanny has her own ambitions, such as marrying Uncle Fester and then killing him to get the inheritance.
This is a good opportunity to see or rewatch one of the most remarkable comedy /horror films.
