This week features no aliens, no zombies, no vampires and no werewolves – so that pretty much leaves all those horror movies with scary creatures I really don’t watch. But I have seen some very good ghosts over the years, and one creature pops into my head as well, so lucky for me, I could compile the following list.
I’m pretty sure this was the first horror movie I ever enjoyed from start to finish. The slow burn of horrific things happening was its biggest appeal, and it feels like a thriller most of the time. The qualification for this topic are of course ghosts that are terrorizing a family in a very creepy house. And Nicole Kidman gives a very subtle and brilliant performance as the protective mother.
Oh boy, how much I adore this movie! Frank Bannister, after an incident, can see and communicate ghosts, and he uses his ghosts friends to scam the locals by being a ghostbuster of sorts. The movie gets a lot more serious when people start ending up dead, and demonic like numbers appear on their foreheads. But have no fear, beneath the terrifying movie is a heartfelt comedy that is lead by the always lovely Michael J- Fox
Who would have known a large bunny would make the list!? Donnie Darko is a twisted story, and the bunny makes it even more twisted. Accompanied by the young and fresh Jake Gyllenhaal, the movie is still somehow lodged in my brain even after all those years. And to think of it, this one deserves a rewatch, who knows what my old self will think of this little gem now.
This one is talked about a lot, and I will talk about it some more, because this one is amazing! Stranger Things features great performances, a horrific monster and so much love you will love it unconditionally yourself. If anyone out there still has not watched it, go watch it!
Yes, I know, the damn series is still running and frankly, I don’t care for it being so long because the first five season wrap up the story line oh so well! Actually, it was meant to be five seasons in the first place, but it got so popular that Supernatural is still going strong and we might end up with 20+ seasons if the fans won’t stop fanning. But that being said, the first five seasons and some following that, are pretty decent, and filled with monsters, creatures, ghosts, angels and the devil himself!
