IMDb rating: 7/10

Year: 2019

Director Galder Gaztelu-Urrutia

A lowering platform with enough food for everyone.

Director: Jonathan Demme

Plot: There appears to be a serial murderer out there who has kidnapped the daughter of a United States Senator, and this individual has risen to the top of the FBI’s Most Wanted list.

Tucker & Dale Vs Evil

IMDb Rating: 7.5/10

Year: 2011

Director: Eli Craig

Plot: Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil is a horror comedy with a swirl: the villains are basically the heroes, and likewise. What begins as a normal ‘hillbilly’ horror film, in which a group of vacationing adolescents find themselves at the disposal of a pair of homicidal rednecks deep in the woods, quickly transforms into a wide satire of the horror genre overall.

IMDb Rating:6.6

Year: 2015

Director: Karyn Kusama

Plot:  Will (Logan Marshall-Green) and his partner Kira are headed to party. W hen they strike a coyote on the highway, Will has no choice but to mercifully kill it.

Year: 2015

Director: Jeremy Saulnier

IMDb Rating: 6.8/10

Year: 2012

Director: Scott Derrickson

Plot: Ellison Oswalt (Ethan Hawke), an crime writer, moves his wife and two small children into a house where four people were killed years ago. A little girl has also gone missing, prompting the writer to investigate more, but he soon discovers some 8mm tape depicting additional gruesome death scenes. Sinister is one of the most unnerving horror films that we have seen in a long time, and it certainly stays true to its name.


IMDb Rating:7.3/10

Year: 1982

Director: Tobe Hooper

Plot: The “television people,” spirits that she can hear chatting within the static on the screen, are encountered by a family’s daughter. The house rattles one evening, and the spirits escape. Poltergeist, the Steven Spielberg-directed haunted home horror film, is one of my all-time favourites, a classic 1980s picture that has held up well over the years, with my admiration for it rising with each decade.


IMDb Rating:4.8/10

Year: 1997

Director: Luis Llosa

Austin Tilden (Emile Hirsch), Tommy’s son and colleague, is set to go to the movies with his fiancée Emma (Ophelia Lovibond), but he stays to aid his father with the postmortem. They reveal strange and scary revelations about Jane Doe during the rainy and sad night.
