Spooky month is upon us and as always I’m looking forward to viewing a ton of horror movies (especially this year since I’ve finally caved in and decided to subscribe to Shudder). Usually this time last year I would’ve been at Shriekfest, Comic-Con LA, visiting haunts, costume parties, and such, but since none of those things are happening this year (due to the still-raging global pandemic), I’ll take comfort in getting to view some seriously awesome horrors. Below are five of my current faves:
On Halloween, a group of friends encounter an extreme haunted house that promises to feed on their darkest fears. The night turns deadly as they come to the horrifying realization that some nightmares are real.
Why It’s Cool: No CGI and all the effects are practical effects.
Six friends accidentally invite the attention of a demonic presence during an online séance and begin noticing strange occurrences in their homes.
Why It’s Cool: Found footage in Pandemic times.
THE BEACH HOUSE
College sweethearts on a romantic getaway struggle for survival when unexpected guests exhibit signs of a mysterious infection.
Why It’s Cool: Sci-fi horror blend, The Mist meets Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
An aimless young man (Lou Taylor Pucci) takes an impromptu trip to Italy and becomes involved with an alluring genetics student (Nadia Hilker) who harbors a transformative secret.
Why It’s Cool: Body horror meets love story.
When a woman gives birth to twins, only one child survives. She begins to suspect that something supernatural has chosen her remaining child, and it will stop at nothing to take it from her.
Why It’s Cool: Demonic possession or post-partum depression?
