Do you guys prefer Neo-Horror or Post-Horror ? Posted on June 2, 2022 by Anonymous Do you guys prefer Neo-Horror or Post-Horror ?
Its called soi horror, basically nothing happens the whole film and its an allegory for some retarded social commentary and also fuck white people
I think you're right.
You're on to something here...
Social commentary has always been part of horror look at Night of the living Dead or at least half the old twilight zone episodes
B&W Twilight Zone was mainly sci-fi and weird stories, horror stories were really few.
Night of The Living Dead had absolutely NO political message, everyone thought it was political because the black lead actor, but Romero said that he choses him for the role just because he was the one who learned the part better; the social commentary in his movies started with Dawn of the Dead.
Many horror movies of the past have a political commentary, but also a real horror content; nu-horror movies lack both, 99% of them just put some blood in one or two scenes for the horror part an a political joke for the "serious"ne, because modern audience wouldn't understand nothing more complex, just think about the "ending explained" videos on youtube... people need a 30 minutes explanation to understand why the protagonist goes home after the bad guy dies (subscribe if you like).
Good god I hope you were dropped on your head as a kid.
Subscribe if you like.
>Social commentary has always been part of horror.
And i counter attack your soi bullshit with "death of the author".
The social commentary isn't real it's in your mentally retarded "brain".
Social commentary? Fuck while people? You sound unhinged. Is this what 4chan does to a brain?
This or "it's all in le head mental illness"
This, old horror used to be a cautionary tale against sexual degeneracy.
>A Ghost Story
whoever wrote this is a genuine 100% retard
I'm with this guy, watching one of the mara sisters binge eat a pie after afflecks funeral and vomit it up is not exactly horror, just sad
Who needs a movie to experience existential dread?
The sois who haven't realised how bad things truly are yet
Wtf is post horror?
I hate overly granular definitions it’s so autistic to me
generally "post-something" means a work that exists as a reaction to an existing work. it basically is a criticism or a meta commentary of that thing. soibois and hipster girls pretend to love that sort of thing
it's like internet critics, they can't make decent media, they just shit on those who make media
>it's like critics, they can't make decent media, they just shit on those who make media
Why are people so drastically uninformed about films writing about them?
Oh yeah this "post horror" is a totally new thing, it's not like things like Rosemary's Baby would fit in exactly with the slow burn a24 crap.
BTW, the issue with A24 isn't that it's "soi" or does too much social commentary, it's that it's a production company with a "house style", and people are fans of the company like they would be fans of a director or writer. The idea that fans of upmarket movies would act like Disney adults and fawn over a company is repulsive. (they are upmarket the same way prestige TV is upmarket).
Many of the films in this niche are undeniably good btw, it's as silly to hate all of these as it is to have an A24 tattoo imo.
the problem is that it isn't actually granular, this definition applies to a trend not a genre. You're right to feel that the label is meaningless.
Correct, which would make this label retarded because the thing it applies to
>doesn't critique or comment on previous/existing trends or genres
>break away from previous/existing trends
it comes at night was boring as piss
I like the horror from the 80s which really isn't scary and is instead really comfy and fun.
They need to bring these back as horror movies.
Maybe make it a little more modern with mass shooting movies.
That's the scariest shit. Real life.
Not ghouls and ghosts. Don't care how pretentious it is.
A Ghost Story and It Comes at Night are two of the worst "horror" films I've ever seen.
>post horror is gonna get rid of jump scares
Soi horror has been around for awhile
No one cares. Halloween killed it at the box office as did the new scream. Meanwhile there are talks of other slasher reboots happening on top of others announced/already made (jeepers creepers 4, new chucky show, Texas chainsaw massacre, etc)
Slasher genre is resurgent, jump scares and insane kills are here to take over, not slow burn existential horror
If nightmare on elm street and Friday the 13th ever get made and are successful soi horror is dead
>we could potentially see Freddy vs Jason 2
I hope do, or better yet Freddy vs Jason vs ash as was planned and then canned
batman vs aliens vs superman vs predator vs terminator vs freddy vs robocop vs michael myers vs chucky vs jason vs Leprechaun in the hood vs the alien dicky in species 1995
You slasherfags are in the same league as capeshit fags.
>he doesn't enjoy slasher movies
Sorry that you were filtered anon
Boring pretentious bullshit. If I want to feel insignificant I'll ask a woman out. If I'm watching horror it's for the tits. Why is this so fucking difficult to understand.
If you want tits why not watch a porn? Ignorant gay.
Are you stupid? Show me a porn that has a killer killing teenagers. Stupid low iq gay. Go back to Iraq you 9/11 having piece of dog shit.
>implying "regular" horror = jump-scares
kill all journos
And feeling dread isn't a new thing, that's what made horror movies work back in the day when everything wasn't hot garbage. Fuck off.
Ghost Story isn't even a horror movie.
These flicks are shot like car commercials and made by talentless hack frauds
The joke is that the average millennial would thank the serial killer about to murder them, so horror has to get psychological instead
God I love Haych Pee
As for me, I prefer elevated horror
Dude white people are trying to steal my body (surprised emoji)
You refer to yourself as a "Cat Mom", don't you?
That is such an ungodly stupid name for a genre. It's like saying "horror for smart people and not for dumdums".
It's fucking disrespectful to the genre as a whole, as though The Exorcist, Nosferatu, Videodrome, Possession, Don't Look Now, The Shining, Deep Red etc. belong to a genre for idiots that a handful of A24 directors had the idea to elevate into real art. Eggers and Aster would never agree to that and I don't know why publications feel the need to pretend the genre has always just been mindless jumpscares before The Witch invented the concept of atmosphere.
>breaking all the rules
Rosemarys baby did this shit decades ago.
I don't know what "post horror" is, never seen any of the movies they mentioned.
Living is existential dread. I do t want that in my distraction.
I find the horrors the real world generates to be much worse than any depicted on screen in the last decade or so.
Neither..as I live in New Delhi.
Joke being life itself is a horror movie.
