8 Horror Movies We Know You Missed and Need to Watch

1. It Follows (2015)

It Follows

It Follows

Here is an excellent idea to keep your teenage daughters from staying away from the bad boy next door. Simply instruct them to watch “It Follows”! The horror film directed by newcomer helmer David Robert Mitchell tells the story of a young woman who is haunted by an unknown supernatural force after a sexual encounter. She learns that she is the latest recipient of a fatal curse that is passed from victim to victim via sexual intercourse, so skip the safe sex talk and skip right to the boogyman! The cool thing about the flick is that no time is wasted on why the replacement baddie for the clap is haunting its victims…..it simply follows and destroy. The mysterious “sex demon” in the form of a person will follow its victim until it scores a kill, unless the unlucky recipient has sex with another person and passes the curse along to them. But if that person dies, the creature will come after its original victim again.

2. We are still Here (2015)

We are still Here

We are still Here

Nothing good comes from an old house in the fields of New England (stop the sentence right there even!) that decides to wake up and demand  a sacrifice! The retro haunted-house thriller features a stellar cast of horror genre golden oldies (79-year-old Monte Markham is my favorite) and really plays out what is expected of a typical old school horror flick. It is also drenched with cheesy special effects, but manage to evenly spread out the scares to make it a good purchase for your Halloween collection. After a poor attempt at a séance that always goes horribly wrong in most horror films, all hell breaks loose to quench the thirst of most diehard horror fans.

3. Deathgasm (2015)

Deathgasm

Deathgasm

Interested in a heavy-metal-themed New Zealand horror-comedy called Deathgasm? If not….you should be (they had me at heavy-metal-themed horror-comedy). This coming-of-age horror movie follows Brodie (Milo Cawthorne), a metalhead who found a song that can actually summon evil powers straight from hell. The movie is exactly what it promises to be: it is stupid but clever, it has guts and gore, but most of all its fun!

4. The Final Girls (2015)

The Final Girls

Imagine that you are stuck inside a horror movie and now you get the chance to use your horror movie knowledge to send the spawns from hell back to where they came from. “The Final Girls” is exactly that! The story follows Max Cartwright (Taissa Farmiga from “American Horror Story”), a young girl recently orphaned when her once famous scream queen actress mother passed away in a car accident. On the anniversary of her mother’s death she decides to watch her deceased mom’s movie she starred in called “Camp Bloodbath”. We are still not sure why or how, but Max finds herself trapped inside the B-horror movie with her friends and the game of survival begins. The movie boasts with a stellar cast and offers lots of fun and cheesy horror moments.

5. The Visit (2015)

The Visit

The Visit

Most M. Night Shyamalan fans have already traded in their collection of DVD’s and returned their club-members-only cap and T-Shirt for most of his efforts the last 12 years. He finally delivered something that reminds us why he was so famous after the release of his flagship film, “The Sixth Sense”. In his latest film there is once again a twist in the plot (there will always be an expected reveal in Shyamalan’s movies) but this time round it is far more satisfying than most of this previous flicks. “The Visit” perfectly blends light humour and terror which plays out on a secluded farmhouse. Becca (Olivia DeJonge) and younger brother Tyler (Ed Oxenbould) travel to Pennsylvania in the farm country to meet their maternal grandparents for the first time. They have never seen them before because their mother is estranged from her parents, and now they have an opportunity to make-up for lost time. They are welcomed by Nana (Deanna Dunagan) and Pop Pop (Peter McRobbie) and all seems well, but soon after their first night in the big farmhouse they notice increasingly strange behavior from their grandparent s. Once they discover the truth about them, they realise that they might night make it home.

6. Clown (2013)

Clown

Clown

Some horror geeks will remember a faux trailer about this film that eventually took shape to become one of the most anticipated clown horror films. Like most fans of horror, we find clowns to be eerie and we are always suspicious of their motives even though they are loved by most kids. The story begins with a loving father, Kent McCoy, who finds a clown suit in a house he is selling to surprise his son on his birthday when the clown for hire failed to pitch for his party. When has it ever been a good idea to wear a clown suit hidden away in attic huh? Kent falls asleep still wearing the clown costume after the birthday party, but the next morning he discovers that he is no longer able to take of the entire ensemble. Donning the thick leather body suit, wig, and red nose, Kent realizes that no matter what, the suit and all the rest is fused to his skin. Shortly after he is experiencing a sense of hunger for something he has never had before….human flesh. The hellish costume is actually the skin and hair of an ancient demon from Northern Europe now forgotten: the “Cloyne”, which attracted five children (one for each coldest month of the year) to devour. So for those who suffer with Coulrophobia and film buffs who appreciate Stephen King’s “IT”, be sure not to miss this horror flick.

7. Creep (2015)

Creep

Creep

“Creep” is one of those genre quasi-horror movies that stays with you for a while. It is a clever and very short, but entertaining horror movie that keeps you guessing. The film follows Aaron (Patrick Brice – director and star) as he travels to a mountain cabin after responding to an online ad asking for someone to spend the day filming something. The cryptic online ad reads: “$1,000 for the day. Filming service. Discretion is appreciated”, nothing weird about that. Instead of finding two hot blondes in a hot tub filled with baby oil, Aaron meets Josef (Mark Duplass, FX’s “The League”) who says he wants to make a movie for his unborn child. Aaron notices that the strange man’s requests becomes more and more creepy and soon realises that he is trapped miles away with a psycho. It is produced by horror master Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity, Insidious), so expect this found footage film to keep you on your toes.

8. Goodnight Mommy (2015)

Goodnight Mommy

Goodnight Mommy

Identical twin boys Lukas and Elias’ lives are turned upside-down when their single mother return from an unexplained plastic surgery procedure. Mom seems strange to the boys but they are happy to have her back at home, even though her face is wrapped in bandages. Her demeanor is extremely distant since her return and the boys are growing suspicious with each day passing. It is a quiet film that manage to capture the unnerving moments with the boys with excellent cinematography and acting skills. It was surprisingly good even though my expectations of the film was the direct opposite.
