This is my all time favorite horror, Elegant Spanish/American horror gem that owes plenty to Henry James. but this one goes further. Nicole Kidman proved her acting skills in this horror masterpiece. She is playing a stern mother in a haunted English mansion whose children are allergic to the sun. The kids think someone is haunting the house. The mother is on edge because her husband has disappeared in the war leaving her lonely. Ending of the movie is so brilliant and twisted that you don’t see it coming. Im dying to tell you but I should not, check it out yourself.
Neil Marshall’s this horror flick is not for people who are claustrophobic, but this movie is a horror masterpiece, with a mother losing both her husband and daughter in a violent car crash. While the later horror of her and her friends trapped in a cave with carnivorous mutants is bizarre and creepy as hell, it’s the human drama of revelations about a tryst and her dead spouse that really resonate as well as that emotional climax where the woman finally snaps and believe she’s reunited with her child, her mind inventing a final peaceful fantasy before….. I have seen it long ago and still didn’t muster enough courage to watch it again.
An insane childless mother who breaks into a pregnant woman’s home with designs to steal her unborn baby is often difficult to watch, with scenes of a fetus avoiding a womb-invading knife and all manner of stabbings and belly damage. And the psycho gets her baby in the end. This is one insanely depressing movie, move with caution.
More dark, domestic nightmare Stephen King but in the case of The Mist, the source novel is not depressing. It has its moments of misery, sure, but you can blame the soul-sucking on writer/director Frank Darabont, who makes his main hero decide to shoot his own son because he thinks there’s no way out from the foggy shroud of monsters that have engulfed the city. Seconds later the army comes to rescue everyone and dad buckles to his knees in tears. Some liked this ending. I thought and still, think it’s stupid and tacked on. Depressing yes. But a fabricated depression.
If you’ve seen A Serbian Film, you know why it’s on this list. If you haven’t think twice before you do! An oppressed porn actor is forced to star in an innovative film for dough and ends up immersing himself in a world of baby rape, necrophilia, adult rape and other nasty stuff. It climaxes with the dude unknowingly sodomizing his own child and wife before the battered trio corresponds to off themselves with a single bullet.
