Top 12 Horror Movies

Hey everyone!

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.

[REC]

A television reporter and cameraman follow emergency workers into a dark apartment building and are quickly locked inside with something terrifying.

IMDb

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.

The Descent

A caving expedition goes horribly wrong, as the explorers become trapped and ultimately pursued by a strange breed of predators.

IMDb

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.

Sinister

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.

IMDb

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.

IMDb

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.

Session 9

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.

IMDb

Opinion: Probably the best psychology horror movie out there. The real horror is in the mind of people.

The Conspiracy

A documentary about conspiracy theories takes a horrific turn after the filmmakers uncover an ancient and dangerous secret society.

IMDb

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.

Spring

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.

IMDb

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.

Oculus

A woman tries to exonerate her brother, who was convicted of murder, by proving that the crime was committed by a supernatural phenomenon.

IMDb

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.

IMDb

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.

IMDb

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.

The Awakening

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.

IMDb

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.

Insidious

A family looks to prevent evil spirits from trapping their comatose child in a realm called The Further.

IMDb

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.

Hey everyone!

Welcome to the first Halloween Week on Viking Reviews. Apart from the obvious theme change, there will be some more changes.

From today, and up to the 31st, this blog will go with the theme of Halloween, or put simply – horror. I will keep the mystery alive, and will not tell you what kind of posts to expect. What I will tell you, however, is this: Every post from now on will include a riddle. A single word will solve each one of them. If you think you got it, write it down somewhere, and wait for the next post. A password protected post will appear at the end. You will only be able to unlock it by combining all the answers to the riddles. Happiness or disappointment awaits when you open it.

Good luck.

Let’s talk about Depression.

Here is a testimony about depression from a fellow blogger. Read it. It might help you or somebody you know.

This is the last reblog about this, I do not want to bore you and be the cause of bad mood.

It’s mental health awareness week in the UK and national mental health month in the US. Due to that, I thought I’d write something a bit more personal for once. Forgoing the book reviews and memes in favour of this rambling nonsense! Yes, it’s a book blog and I’m fully aware that this isn’t a book related post, but as I already post poetry on the blog, well, to paraphrase the brat saying ‘I’m an only child, I can do what I want’ I offer you this ‘it’s my blog, I’ll do what I want‘.

Let’s start with an introduction. Hi, I’m The Tattooed Book Geek, but that’s only my blog name. I’m actually called Drew and I’ve suffered from depression, yeah that dreaded ‘D‘ word with the stigma attached to it. While I’ve never attempted it, in the past I have thought about…

Let’s talk about mental health.

My first reblog but a very important one! Do not be afraid to share how you feel with those around you. Your mental health is the single most important thing in your life, do not ignore it.

Let’s talk about crying for no reason in the middle of the day. Let’s talk about going to bed at 8pm to try and sleep through the empty feelings. Let’s talk about making up a story just so you have an excuse to text a friend when you feel low because you can’t just say I’m sad. Let’s talk about that black raincloud that you just can’t shake.

It’s Mental Health Awareness Week – the one week every year that we are encouraged to talk about these things. But 7 days just isn’t enough, not by a long shot.

Nearly two-thirds of people have admitted to having some sort of mental health problem, yet still it’s such a taboo subject. You can’t just ask someone how their mental health is, the way you’d ask about a cold. You can’t bring your own mental health up in the middle of…
