Daclaud Lee is a fan of Horror movies and here are some more recommendations!
1. Army of Darkness
Army of Darkness was an awesome movie of the Evil Dead franchise. This time Bruce Campbell is transported back in time to the medieval era to kick some undead ass!
Candyman is obviously loosely based off the urban legend of Bloody Mary. Supposedly if you say his name in the mirror several times, he will appear and kill you. This was one of my favorite horror movies as a kid and it scared the hell out of me back then and I always keep my mirrors covered!
3. The Curse of Frankenstein
I have always had a thing for classic monster movies and the Curse of Frankenstein really captured the Gothic Horror mood of the classic Mary Shelly novel.
4. Flesh for Frankenstein
This is Andy Worhol’s version of the Frankenstein novel. If you don’t know who Andy Worhol is, then it’s not important (he was supposed to have been a famous pop artist, but I don’t give a damn). This movie was just plain sick and will leave you with nightmares of dismembered bodies and necrophelia.
This movie is an excellent modern Gothic horror example. This is the movie version of the Hellbound Heart by Clive Barker. In spite of the cover, Pinhead is not the main character and only makes an appearance at the end.
6. Hellraiser II: Hellbound
Part two of the Hellraiser series. This time we are taken straight to Clive Barker’s version of hell and into the world of Cenobytes and demonic creatures. The special effects of the 80’s were just ghastly and I still consider this movie is fairly disturbing… Maybe the 80’s was all about being so unreal, or maybe there’s just something morbidly odd about clay animation (reference to Dr. Chenard Cenobyte form). I don’t know.
7. Jeeper’s Creepers
There’s just something disturbing about this movie. While it was a little cheesy, it makes me wonder about the origins of the demon called the Creeper, because he just creeps me the hell out with his fearsome morbidity…
8. The Bunker
When I first read about the Bunker, I was expecting World War II with zombies, but it was a bit more terrifying than that… The Bunker relies less on visual thrills and more on subconscious chills to tell a tale of the supernatural and macabre.
9. The Hills Have Eyes 2006
I never liked the original Hills Have Eyes, but the remake was just terrifying in its own right simply due to the disturbing themes of mutants outcasts, rape, murder and kidnapping. This movie excited as much as it scared me. The monsters themselves were more or less deformed humans, but the things they do are just plain gruesome and disgusting.
10. Wrong Turn
This movie is a sub genre called Hillbilly Horror, but don’t let the name discourage you, because there is just something mysteriously terrifying about mutated hillbillies living in the middle of nowhere. This movie certainly preys upon a city dweller’s fear of breaking down in the middle of nowhere or taking a wrong turn on some back water road. I went driving out in the countryside at night and I was reminded of all the disturbing aspects of being stalked by mutant hillbillies out for blood…
