I absolutely love sci-fi and horror movies. Being a part of the new generation of people, I give respect to the classics, but I feel like we need to move on from that. This list is purely subjective, and based on my own opinion. IMDb back-link is included for those, who want to know more about the movie. If you click on the movie poster it will take you to the trailer. The list is not ordered in any way, which means that every movie on the list is a must watch.
PS: The Conjuring sucks.
A television reporter and cameraman follow emergency workers into a dark apartment building and are quickly locked inside with something terrifying.
Opinion: One of the best POV horror movies. It makes you feel as if you are there right now. The suspense is immense. Word of advise: The second part of the movie is okay, but the third one is awful. Word of caution: It is a spanish movie. Keep that in mind. The american remake is absolute garbage.
A caving expedition goes horribly wrong, as the explorers become trapped and ultimately pursued by a strange breed of predators.
Opinion: I love caves and the feeling of unexplored places. This is what this movie manages to deliver, and wrap it all up in a nice horror story. Expect the unexpected in the unexplored.
Washed-up true-crime writer Ellison Oswalt finds a box of super 8 home movies that suggest the murder he is currently researching is the work of a serial killer whose work dates back to the 1960s.
Opinion: This is one of those movies, where the main character decides to take stuff into their own hands instead of turning to the police. In this case this fortunate for us, because we received an awesome movie. The horror begins as soon as the tapes start rolling.
The Cabin in the Woods
Five friends go for a break at a remote cabin, where they get more than they bargained for, discovering the truth behind the cabin in the woods.
Opinon: I loved this movie. Instead of following the usual path of a naked-woman-killer in the woods (khm… Friday 13th) this one took a totally unexpected turn. One of the best.
Tensions rise within an asbestos cleaning crew as they work in an abandoned mental hospital with a horrific past that seems to be coming back.
Opinion: Probably the best psychology horror movie out there. The real horror is in the mind of people.
A documentary about conspiracy theories takes a horrific turn after the filmmakers uncover an ancient and dangerous secret society.
Opinion: This one is a POV again, but not like [REC]. It was interesting to me, because you hear all kinds of stuff about secret societies, and then you actually have someone make a movie out of that, and they actually release it. The whole movie has a strange aura around it, as if we are meant to see this, and feel like we cannot do anything about it.
A young man in a personal tailspin flees from US to Italy, where he sparks up a romance with a woman harboring a dark, primordial secret.
Opinion: Probably my favorite horror movie. It is not your usual slash and kill horror movie. It is far from that. The horror elements interweave with the lives of two people, and their relationship. Without going into much detail, I will leave you with this: If a guy says that a movie with a love story is one of the best movies, then you just have to watch it.
A woman tries to exonerate her brother, who was convicted of murder, by proving that the crime was committed by a supernatural phenomenon.
Opinion: Again, one of those psychology horror movies. This one just destroys your mind, and just like the characters in the movie, you fail to realize what is truth and what is not. Up to the very end. A great movie.
The Woman in Black
A young solicitor travels to a remote village where he discovers the vengeful ghost of a scorned woman is terrorizing the locals.
Opinion: One of those classic haunted house movies, but with a twist. How far would you go, and over how many bodies, until you call it a day and stop digging into stuff?
The Exorcism of Emily Rose
A lawyer takes on a negligent homicide case involving a priest who performed an exorcism on a young girl.
Opinion: A great movie that is actually based on a true story. I liked the fact that it did not dwell too much into the paranormal or supernatural, but only presented the story as told by those who lived with her, and tried to help her. A great movie, even for the non-believers.
In 1921, England is overwhelmed by the loss and grief of World War I. Hoax exposer Florence Cathcart visits a boarding school to explain sightings of a child ghost. Everything she believes unravels as the ‘missing’ begin to show themselves.
Opinion: This is one of those that is hard to explain why it is good, but it just is. The suspense and the story is absolutely beautiful, and keeps you on your toes until the end. All this paired up with 20th century England, and you are in for a blast.
A family looks to prevent evil spirits from trapping their comatose child in a realm called The Further.
Opinion: Now I may sound like a hipster on this one, but I knew about Night Terrors, as they are officially called. If you have never experienced them (you can induce them on your own, but I do not recommend doing it), it is a thing when you are fully awake, but your body is still asleep. You can see shadows at the corner of your eyes, standing right next to you, or moving across the room. Now, some say that these shadows are made up by your mind. The others say that these shadows are real, and they are waiting for you to exit your body, so they can take it. And that is basically what this movie is all about.
I am not a thing, but you always have me when in need. I might die, but I will always die last.
