Hey Polo’s Poppins!
It is October and I am sure most of you are gearing up for the Halloween Party and celebration!!!
Being a horror genre cinephile, I am going to recommend the movies that you must watch before the Halloween to set the spookiness or you also can watch this during the Halloween party night.
Let’s begin in no particular order!
It is the best psychological horror according to me till date.
Orphan, 2009,directed by @jcolletserra,revolved around a couple with 2 children adopting a 9 year old girl Esther and her suspicious behaviour which turned into an evil game of mayhem and murder.The movie is spine chilling and horrific with it’s story plot and acting specially by the protagonist Esther played by @isabellefur.
If you dig into horror genre,then this is a must watch and made into my list.
Being a horror movie fascinator,I had to pick The Conjuring as one of my favorite films.This movie is about a family who moved to a haunted house and about the paranormal activists Ed and Lorraine who helped the mother to save her children from the haunting. Allthough the story line is not that great,however the depiction and some scenes will really give you good bumps. You can watch this movie with same excitement and suspense over and over and hence made it to my list.
However I recommend you to watch all the sequels as well as Anabelle and Anabelle- Recreation which will help you to understand the entire story line much better.
3.Hide and Seek:
The movie revolves around a little girl and his widower father who is trying to come to regular life after his wife committed suicide untill his daughter developed friendship with an imaginary friend.The movie is an awesome thriller and the climax is such a twist.A must watch for horror movie freaks.
How can Halloween be celebrated with this cult movie!
Although there are quite a lot of versions of this one however I always found the original was intrigued.
A young boy who murdered his sister escaped from the mental assylum after 15 years to spread the haunting on Halloween night.
If you want to be safe,don’t breathe. Don’t underestimate the power of an old blind man. This movie is a perfect example of apparently old and feeble person being the terror. I gurantee you that you will stop breathing at least once during the course of the movie.
6. Exorcism of Emily Rose:
If you are hardcore fan of possession and exorcism,this is the movie to go for. It is based on a true event where Emily was dead during her exorcism by a well known priest who was alleged for her homecide as no one believed in demonic possession. However the prosecutor was convinced about the fact and truth was revealed.The events of exorcism and the super natural scenes were really commendable.
7.Drag Me to Hell:
This movie is a great lesson that don’t mess with any old lady. It is one of the horrific movies that I have seen. When a young loan officer refused an old lady to approve loan,her life became hell due to the lady’s demonic curse.
Beside the Conjuring series,it is another of James Wan’s horror treat to his audience and my absolute favorite series where a family moved to a new house. Little do they know that after the man went to coma due to an accident,his spirit was freely moving into the further(different plane) and taking advantage of the empty body,a malevolent spirit trapped it and the series of spooky events started taking place.
I would suggest you all to watch all the series though I loved the first and second chapter the most.
I am sure all of you watched the short film where if you will switch off the light,it commands the demon to come.
Well after the short film became so popular on YouTube,they finally made a full fledged horror movie with the same concept where an unknown terror that lurks in the dark. When Rebecca left home, she thought she left her childhood fears behind. Growing up, she was never really sure of what was and wasn’t real when the lights went out…and now her little brother, Martin, is experiencing the same unexplained and terrifying events that had once tested her sanity and threatened her safety. A frightening entity with a mysterious attachment to their mother, Sophie, has reemerged. But this time, as Rebecca gets closer to unlocking the truth, there is no denying that all their lives are in danger…once the lights go out.
10.The Good Son:
It is about a psychopathic kid terrorizing his cousin who tries incredibly hard to convince his family that how cousin is psychotic and evil. He continually tries to stop the evil boy from getting worse, only to have th boy make him look worse at every turn.
