Just Outside top 5
Ouija: Origin Of Evil
Directed by : Mike Flanagan
Starring : Elizabeth Reaser, Annalise Basso, Lulu Wilson, Parker Mack, Henry Thomas
Directed by : David F Sandberg
Starring : Teresa Palmer, Gabriel Bateman, Alexander DiPersia, Billy Burke
EditDirected by : Mike Flanagan
Starring : Kate Siegel, Micheal Trucco, John Gallagher Jr
Out of many high budget movies Mike Flanagan works on, this movie is quite different and remarkably jaw dropping. With few people on the roster and a new taste of home invasion sub genre,this movie without theatrical release gave us a glimpse of Kate Siegal’s inspiring performance.
4) 10 Cloverfield Lane
Directed by : Dan Trachtenberg
Starring : John Goodman, Mary Elizabeth, John Gallagher Jr
What if a guy abducts you outta nowhere and keeps you in a bunker telling the world is in verge of destruction and forbids you to get in contact with outside world? Thats what inside 10 Cloverfield Lane. A sequel to 2008 movie Cloverfield this psychological masterpiece will keep you in aww for almost its end.
3) The Witch
Directed by : Robert Eggers
Starring : Anna Taylor – Jay, Ralph Ineson, Kate Dickie, Harvey Scrimshaw
The Witch( Stylized as The VVitch) was the debut movie of Robert Eggers based on historical periodic supernatural horror movie. Having a highly anticipated release on February after being awarded in many film festivals, its slow peaking and 17 th century English background might bore some people but its bound to the movie in the ranks of Exorcist, Nosferatu, and Shining with great cult following im the years to come.
2) Don’t Breathe
Directed by : Fede Alvarez
Starring : Jane Levy, Dylan Minnette, Daniel Zovatto, Stephen Lang
A house invasion gone wrong. A typical tension builder from its start to end that makes us feel we are the characters ourself this Flick just gave American horror a gem. With its sub plot and twisted characters in full dark scenario i wish this movie get an Oscar nomination.
1) Under The Shadows
Directed by : Babak Anvari
Starring : Narqes Rashidi, Avin Marshouli, Bobby Naderi
“To every person all around the world, not just for the genre lover”. This sentence perfectly sums up what this movie will bring to the viewers. An absolute scintillating movie made with Iraq – Iran war, the love bond between mother and child, the child psychology and 5- star performance from all its crew this movie can be as compared with Australian great The Babadook. Hope this movie gets to a broader fanbase and hope this movie has nightmares for you.
