When it comes to horror films, you are either a brave heart or a chicken.
Since it is the weekend and best known as the time for relaxation, we decided to indulge our horror film fan base a bit, with some of our best 5 must-see films.
Any horror-film list is incomplete without ‘The Conjuring’.
Released 6 years ago, this haunted house flick introduces some new jump-scares (think clapping) into a genre that’s been capitalizing off of unsuspecting fans for years.
In typical horror movie form, the film’s central family begins to experience some supernatural occurrences after moving into a new house, forcing them to turn to a husband-and-wife ghost-hunting duo for guidance. In fact, all “The Conjuring” films are a must-see.
Variety describes this one as “cult horror meets religious hypocrisy in this creepy gothic thriller”.
The film follows prodigal son Thomas Richardson, who returns home to find that his sister is being held for ransom by a religious cult. But after traveling to the organization’s isolated island and infiltrating its tight-knit community, he discovers that his missing sister may be the least of his problems.
The first in a series of films, but the third chronologically, “Insidious” follows a young couple whose son enters a comatose state and becomes a vessel for ghosts who are trying to inhabit his body — a serious issue made even more serious when the film’s leads realize that it’s not just ghosts trying to take control.
