This week we have no exact influence for Fright Night, so below will be some of our favourite movies that we haven’t suggested so far. It was a reasonably lax week for horror, as the bulk of anticipated horror movies of 2017 have been released and ran their course in the media. In saying that, this week a great list was released online with a plethora of horror short films, so if you haven’t watched one before and are a fan of horror go see the best short horror films floating the net at the moment. Short films are highly underrated and usually contain the best bits of horror films in a exciting condensed version. Anyway, below are some of our favourite horror movies ever, enjoy!
Horror Buffs: The House That October Built (2014) – Totally raw in it’s production and storyline, this hand-held film is as creepy as they come. Hillbilly’s, haunted houses, torture and disturbing scenes. This Halloween film was my choice for this years festivities and I was blown away with how well the idea translated to the big screen. If you like road tripping friends searching for the ultimate scare, then this is no doubt the film for you .
Beginners: I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997) – Much like the film below, this iconic horror film is full of mainstays and actors/actresses who stared during the late 90’s and early naughties, such as Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinz Jnr. A film that was used as inspiration, or mocked, in the very first Scary Movie, this is one of the main franchises and most well known slasher films of the late naughties. One of the most memorable horror films of the 90’s as well.
Casual Fans: House Of Wax (2005) – This standard mysterious teen slasher boasts a stellar cast for horror film standards, i.e Jared Padelecki, Chad Michael Murray and Paris Hilton and not to mention some mainstays of the genre (Damon Herriman). Although a remake that doesn’t necessarily jump out as unique or diversifying, it is full of classic tropes that will not disappoint, making it a lock for entertainment and not a chance of being a let down. Not overly scary but the intrigue behind the wax house and it’s ghost town is a cool enough plot to keep you guessing.
