1. CAM

A young camgirl discovers that she’s inexplicably been replaced on her site with an exact replica of herself. I love the concept, an evil version of myself has always been a regular nightmare of mine. It is a very interesting physiological horror to watch and will keep you entertained. Many do not like the fact that nothing is really explained, however I’m ok with that simply because horrors never successfully explain any ending when they try. A proper mystery , I prefer it to stay that way as it will keep your mind going round in loops and this movie will never leave your mind. Which I suppose is s sign of a great horror, just like the first Cube film which was later ruined by further explanations in sequels.

2. Creep

A young videographer answers an online ad for a one-day job in a remote town to record the last messages of a dying man. When he notices the man’s odd behaviour as his message become darker. He finishes the job and attempts to go home but he cannot find his keys, this is when things go really downhill for the videographer. The is a simple and very fun to watch found footage movie and one of the better of its genre. It has a great mix of black comedy mixed in which is rare for a found footage horror. If at this point you have decided you do not like found footage movies then watch this and it may change your mind.

3. Hush (2016)

A deaf and mute writer who retreated into the woods to live a solitary life must fight for her life in silence when a masked killer appears at her window. Hush is a popular slasher horror with a 80s feel in terms of atmosphere and suspense. As our main character/victim is deaf the film has to build suspense without screams, bangs and horrific noises that many horrors rely on. It definitely gains some points as it successfully builds suspense and chills through cinematography and lack of sound effects. Hush pushes the home invasion sub genre of horror to a new level.

4. Paranormal Activity

If you have seen any of these movies than you will know that they are crafted specifically to make a modern audience jump, and they do it extremely well. Not much to say about this or any of the other movies in the series except they are simply a handful of cameras set-up in a haunted house as paranormal activity starts to occur, becoming more sinister and jumpy as the film progresses. Simple but very effective.

5. Creep 2

The storyline is very similar to the first, this time a young women answers the job call to go to a remote place and create some videos. As the day goes on things get weirder and more uncomfortable as she starts to discover there is no escape from this maniac. The movie is every bit as good as the first with the exception that you know what is going to happen as we have already met this creep in the first movie. Plenty of black comedy, great fun and just all round entertaining.

6. Insidious

Insidious follows a family who move to a new house to find themselves haunted by ghosts, however when they move again they soon discover its not the house but their son that is haunted. Spirits and a Demon battle to escape to the real world through their son. Whats unique is it will make you jump when you think you are safe. If you are looking for something a bit different then this movie may just be worth a watch. For most of the film it seems like any typical horror / demonic haunting movies, which it is. However, the movie takes a fairly odd turn in how it chooses to try and conclude the film, I cannot say any-more without giving it away so just give it a watch. Perhaps it goes a little to far in craziness for some or maybe the witters were so fed-up of trying to write a good ending to a horror (which is rare) they decided to give something else a go.

7. Sinister

Sinister is a truly terrifying movie about a demon entity that uses images as its gateway, once you see him in an image there is no getting rid of him. A writer and a family move into a house where a whole family died in a horrific crime just 9 months before. The father discovers some film in the attic with the terrifying truth and unleashes the demonic entity upon the family. The movie overall has very high ratings and is definitely a jump scare movie, so watch with the lights on and the cushions at the ready. A well done horror movie with everything to make a modern thrill seeking audience jump.

8. Unfriended: Dark Web

Dark Web is the sequel to Unfriended but seems to have more real world implications than the first. A teen comes into possession of a new laptop and soon discovers that the previous owner is not only watching him, but will also do anything to get it back. Where the first was a more supernatural tale this one is probably more terrifying as it is something that could possibly happen, therefore next time you are on a video chat it may cross your mind. Blumhouse have again created an original movie which is relevant and drawing the darkest elements our modern society.

9. The Purge Anarchy

These movies don’t really differ a lot in my opinion but they keep creating a lot of success and drawing an audience by keeping the topic relevant and dark. Leo, a sergeant who lost his son, plans a vigilante mission of revenge during the mayhem. However, instead of a death-dealing avenger, he becomes the unexpected protector of four innocents. If you have not seen any of these movies then the base story line is about a future society where there are no laws for 12 hours, allowing people to purge all there deepest desires, hates and frustrations. Each movie or even the series is simply another groups/persons fight for survival.

10. The First Purge

The First Purge is a prequel to the other movies and the series, the main difference being that the purge is limited to a select number of neighbourhoods as an experiment, however the experiment runs riot after a slow start engulfing…. ill stop there to avoid spoilers. Its not as good as the others, but if you are a purge fan then the back story is worth watching.

11. The Green Inferno

The Gree Inferno is about a group of student activist who venture into the rain-forest help protect it from deforestation . Unfortunately they run into a tribe, it is obvious fairly early on that the tribe has intention to eat them. The movie is filmed in a documentary style and is aimed at those who like a lot of gore, so if you like Hostel or Saw then this is worth a try. The acting, story and overall execution is not great but there is still entertainment to be had with the gore and horror.

12. Dark Skies

As the Barrett family’s peaceful suburban life is rocked by an escalating series of disturbing events, they come to learn that a terrifying and deadly force is after them, one which may have arrived from beyond the stars. Dark Skies is a Sc-Fi horror which are normally some of the best. The movie is full of twists and turns and is very entertaining and scary. It will appeal to many US citizens who love alien encounter stories as it is still an idea that haunts many.
