Synopsis: There’s really only one thing you need to know about this movie: Vagina dentata. The myth of “teeth in the vagina” has been covered in a lot of feminist writing, but this horror flick/satire is your comprehensive education on the subject. It gets pretty gory, but it’s worth the watch if you can stomach it.
Synopsis: The Witch is not your average horror movie. You might get a little antsy waiting for something big to happen. But when that moment comes, it’s like being on a roller coaster when you get to that first big drop and you know sh*t’s about to get crazy. The story follows a family in the 1600s that—because of the father’s religious zealotry—are exiled to the woods outside of the colony, where a witch may or may not have also taken up residence. The final few scenes should go down as some of the greatest in horror history: There’s definitely a couple of shots that leave you thinking, Did I really just see that?
Synopsis: There are a lot of masked psycho killer movies to choose from, but writer/director Bryan Bertino pulled some of the inspiration for this one from several real-life home invasion cases. That’s what makes it so tough to watch: The unsettling feeling that this could happen to you is hard to ignore.
Synopsis: This found-footage indie horror movie showcases the talent of Mark Duplass and it. is. disturbing. The plot follows a videographer hired by a Josef (Duplass) to make a documentary for his unborn son. It’s clear as soon as they meet that Josef is a weirdo. The rest of the 77-minute run-time is a lot of Josef’s bizarre behavior, which will leave you screaming at the screen, “Why are you still filming this guy?” Creep 2 is more of the same and just as crazy-fun to watch.
TRAIN TO BUSAN
Synopsis: The zombie genre is a robust one, but have you ever seen zombies on a train? This subtitled South Korean film is one of the best horror releases in recent years, about a dad trying to protect his daughter while traveling to a safe zone as a zombie outbreak spreads through the country. Even if zombies aren’t usually your thing, it’s just a fun, action-packed film. It also has some surprising heart, so you might want to keep a box of tissues nearby.
