The Silence of the lambs is an easy choice as my number one pick for my favorite horror film. The combination of Jody Foster (Clarise Starling) and Anthony Hopkins (Dr. Hannibal Lecter) together in this film was magical. Although this is a story about Dr. Hannibal Lecter for me the role of Clarice was front and center. She gave a Grammy caliber performance and I was mesmerized by her character from the beginning. The first time that I watched this I was at the edge of my seat throughout the film and I have since viewed the film no less than ten times.
I choose Freddy vs. Jason as number 1, because the idea of the movie is extremely creative in horror genre. It is an amazing fight scene between 2 legendary icons in horror genre. It’s a fun-filled, action packed, bloody, and horror-spectacular movie. The fun part is seeing Jason upset at Freddy by taking fresh kills away from him and that causing tension between the two. The idea that Freddy lost his power, and tries to use Jason to bring it back was also very creative, in my opinion. The soundtrack fits the film. The dream sequences are super neat and seeing them at Camp Crystal Lake at the end was very cool.
Conjuring scares the shit out of me. Haunted houses, possessed dolls, cold nights, paranormal occurrences and exorcism. Concept-wise, the Conjuring is earth-shatteringly ‘different’ from other movies. The humane side of the paranormal investigators made it more realistic, showing they are not above all. They have their fears too. The locations used are really nice and the acting by lead actors are also praise-worthy.
“The Thing” is rated number 1 on my list is because it is a masterpiece that is appraised as the greatest horror film of all time by movie critics. “The Thing” includes science-fiction, psychological horror, and intense gore all wrapped into one expertly-crafted film. Watching “The Thing” is a thrilling experience, inducing both paranoia and terror. The most amazing part about this film is the extreme detail to the monstrosities that are in the movie. Unlike horror movies nowadays that are made using CGI, “The Thing” creates beings completely out-of-this-world using creativity. Horror fans, don’t miss out on this classic!
The Conjuring is a movie based on real story and is directed by James Wan. I love the films directed by James Wan and The Conjuring is the best horror movie ever released . Accordingly, I choose it because it has dragged me to a lot of stinkers and the plots are very good as per a horror movie. It made me crap my pants and it was not predictable what’s gonna happen in the movie. Good actor’s, atmosphere of terror everywhere, and its like to be a 40 years old prequel. I highly recommend this movie if you want a good scare.
It is a horror movie produced by Val Lewton in 1942. It is story of a young Serbian woman, Irena who believes to have originated form a race of people that turned into cats when either sexually aroused or deeply angered. Irena and Oliver, who became her suitor later, are the main characters in the film. Although the movie isn’t as frightening when compared to Slasher movie using shocks and gore but it is frightening in an eerie, mysterious way that is hard to narrate; the screen harbored unseen threats and there was an undertone of sexual danger that was more ominous because it was never acted upon. It heroine is a beautiful woman, Irena that never sleeps nor kisses her lover Oliver in the fears that she would turn into a panther. This marital drought wasn’t something that Oliver was aware of its cause. Instead of Irena revealing the secret to her husband, she continued to give excuses. At one incident Oliver buys her a kitten and she had to request for the exchange of pet for a reason that “cats just don’t like me”. The mystery of lack of sexual intimacy led to Oliver sleeping with Alive, his assistant causing cracks for divorce to develop.
This movie isn’t just a horror with scaring images. Instead, its background contains volumes of lessons that can be jolted down. It is a light used to illuminate what goes on in our capsizing marriages. Most of the time, people date and never reveals some of their “secrets” to their spouses just like Irena. Such relationships are rocked by hardships that seem mysterious. Many questions are raised yet they remain unanswered. Unfaithfulness due to lack of sexual intimacy should not hurt. This is because how Oliver would have lived with a wife that isn’t ready to offer her body to him? It is obvious even if you were Oliver, the attractive Alice would be your rock of refuge. We should let the cat out of the bag before our cat personality ruins everything beautiful about us.
Scream is my number one horror movie because you can’t go wrong with Wes Craven. He knew horror like nobody else. His horror movies would lull you into a sense of comfort with their black comedic timing and then cut the tension with a knife, sometimes literally.
Scream brought back the scream queen quality that late 80s and early 90s horror movies were lacking. Hell, Drew Barrymore is one of the stars and she didn’t survive past the first 10 minutes of the movie. Throw in Rose McGowan and Neve Campbell and you have the Charlie’s Angels of 90s horror.
My number one pick is 13 Cameras. I chose 13 Cameras because it is creepy and not the traditional horror film. It has many topics within the movie that I find interesting. It is not like any other movie which is why I love it so much. No matter how many times you watch it, it never gets boring. It has gore, creepiness, murder, captivity, and stalking. It has so many different aspects to it. I also love the foreshadowing in the movie. There are little signs that you can see if you watch the movie a few times. These little “signs” hint at the ending. This is my favorite horror movie.
I love The Conjuring 2 because it is a movie that continues to scare me. That is because it has lots of random scares throughout the movie. I think that the director Wan did an absolutely fantastic job on the creation of this movie. Ed and Lorraine Warren travelled to North London to help a single mother raising 4 children alone in a house plagued by a supernatural spirit. The Warrens were sent on behalf of the church to investigate some paranormal activity. I love movies with paranormal activity because I know that something odd is happening in that house.
My #1 favorite would have to be Annabelle: Creation because of how suspenseful it is, and how it always keeps you wondering. It interests me a lot, if you know about the doll Annabelle in real life this adds some creepy aspects into the film. I feel like the movie is very creative by adding that one of the orphan girls has something wrong with her legs, slowing her from getting away from the demonic doll. I love how the film slowly adds people noticing that something is wrong with the house. At first nobody notices it, but strange things continue happening. Such as the girl sneaking into the room they aren’t allowed in, and watching the doll come to life.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share with you my opinion on horror movies!
