I have never liked watching movies much, but in the rare times that I do watch movies, I always watch the horror genre. I have always liked horror ever since I was young, I thought that it was more exciting and made you anticipate what would happen next. However, even with the thrill horror movies give a person, I have noticed that it can be difficult to find an actual good horror movie to watch. Not the ones with the cheesy jump scares and screaming girls running with barely any clothes on, but the ones that actually make you afraid to go in the dark by yourself.
So I wanted to give some GAGer horror fans a list of some very well made horror movies (in my opinion). They are not scary in the sense that you’d be scared every minute and want to look away from the screen. But they are frightening and more logical (for a movie) then most horror movies.
This movie came out in 1979 and stars Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley aboard a space ship called the Nostromo. The reason why I liked this movie is because it kept my attention throughout the end. It isn’t scary but you keep hoping that all the characters make it out alive. Watch the movie to find out what happens, I don’t think that you’ll regret it.
Another movie about aliens! (Sorry). Again, it is not too scary but it does have some pretty good jump scares. A lot better executed than most horror films. Oh, one thing that really surprised me about this movie was the dialogue. It seems very realistic and on the logical side compared to most dialogue in other horror movies. You’ll know what I mean when you watch it.
Have you guys ever wondered what it would be like to be deaf? Not only that, but a serial killer who is in your house and you have the inability to use your ears? Kinda scary.
I’m sure that some of you have heard of the show Ghost Hunters (An American TV show, I used to watch), well similarly to how the Ghost Hunters team goes to investigate people’s homes, a team goes to investigate a supposed haunted apartment. There are some scary jump scares but the ghosts that they showed in the movie didn’t frighten me much. The reason why I liked the movie is because it is filmed like an actual Ghost Hunting team would go about setting up the camera and it also shows scenes through the camera as well.
I know most people have heard of this movie before. And this movie scares me more than the other four do. Similarly to Hush, the main characters encounter some serial killers who trap them inside the house.
