There is all kind of horror movies and which are filled with all sorts of ghosts and goblins and a lot of gore to scare the crap out of you. But some of the exceptional horror movies of all time don’t leave us wanting to whistle a happy tune in the end. They are soul-smothering and totally dismal nightmare experiences. It’s a masochistic relationship we have with these films. So if you are among those people seeking to see something that will make you want to crawl into a hole and stay there for days, We present to you here and today 10 fright films which aim to promote misery. They are the master movies of misery and we will guarantee you will have so much fun watching them if you haven’t seen them still.
Vincent Price gives a career best performance in Michael Reeves’ powerful look at the misleading life of real-life “witchfinder” Matthew Hopkins, who travel villages in Cromwell’s England and was paid generously to murder innocent people while pretending they were witches. Hopkins is the epitome of capitalist evil and even though he gets his, in the end, the decent people who return to animal states to get their retaliation fare no better.
Nicolas Roeg’s adaptation of Daphne Du Maurier’s novel is a mesmeric venture, It is the haunting and emotionally devastating movie and I recommend you should watch it now below, It is available to watch on YouTube for free. Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie’s daughter drowns at the beginning of the movie and they spend the rest of the film in Venice with Sutherland swearing he sees is child’s spirit running around.
We are indeed talking about the immortal British original here not the idiotic and silly Nicolas Cage remake, who brilliantly messed up another good movie. A tricked police officer hero being burned alive in the titular device. But there’s so much more going on in the original that add to the downbeat power of the movie, including the protagonist’s tortured and confused celibacy and unyielding desire to be good. It is a complex story and worth a watch.
Stephen King’s novel is one of the depressing things you will ever read, He wrote some hard-to-handle horror novels I have ever read and Mary Lambert’s movie almost matches it, tear down the narrative but still produce a courageous downer of a movie. An Indian burial earth has the power to resurrect the dead but when said corpses come back, they ain’t right. That involve 3-year-old Gage Creed who is crushed by a truck, buried by his grieving father and comes back a scalpel-wielding zombie with aims to kill his family.
Director Michael Haneke made this bleakly satirical horror movie of manners twice, once in French and later as an American remake. We slightly fancy the remake because of the cast that includes Naomi Watts in her best performance and Michael Pitt, who is casually scary. A pair of young dandies insinuate themselves into a family’s summer home and psychologically torture and murder everyone.
