      Classic horror is great, you shouldn't be judging the genre off of shit from the 2020s. The pic shows that you enjoyed Shutter and Scream.
      I would recommend classic films like
      >the texas chain saw massacre
      >alien
      >a nightmare on elm street (same director as scream)
      >the exorcist
      >candyman
      >the silence of the lambs
      >black christmas
      >the thing
      >return of the living dead

      Thank you for taking the time, I appreciate it. I tried Alien and didn't like it too much, the death scenes didn't offer enough payoff in my opinion. I really really like the thing though. I'll try the others!

      Yeah it's a shame the genre so so mired in juvenile horse shit that it's just part of the makeup. Thrillers are basically horror for grown ups but we don't get many these days.

        I mean, Ready or Not is kind of a comedy, and Overlord is basically an action movie, but as for pure horror... I mean some of the ones I listed there are considered all time greats.

        The Blob & Talk To Me aren't as renowned as the rest I think, but I thought they were both really great.

        Another all-time great is Misery

      Fun campy horror movie. Same with The Babysitter. Samara Weaving seems to be typecast but I’m not mad about it. I think these quippy self aware horror movies have their place but should be sparing, imagine if all future horror movies were that millennial writing…

    You have to filter through so much trash to find something decent, but sometimes you find something great. My personal favorite is the Witch, but I’m also partial to period pieces so it scratches that for me too. The old classics are classic for a reason- Halloween, Nightmare on Elm Street and Cabin Fever are actually quite tense even my modern standards. It Follows and Smile are also great but favorites altogether really depends on specific preferences and what hits right for you. Body horror usually does nothing for me but one specific scene in Contracted sticks with me to this day, I kind of wish I hadn’t watched it tbh lmao.

    Of your pic- empty man and as above so below are trash, annihilation is ok but weird, I enjoyed the visit and under the skin, been meaning to watch life and the last two aren’t real horror movies. The rest I either haven’t seen or forgot about because they’re also trash.

      Oh frick me sideways I forgot about The Thing. That’s above the Witch for sure. Invasion of the Body Snatchers as a plot only got me so far, but that alert scream at the end puts my hair on end so I rewatch from time to time.

    I want to eventually direct a movie and I want to make my first movie a horror movie because I don't like the horror movies i've seen so far but can someone tell me if my idea is actually rare or if there are actually a lot of horror movies like this already:

    basically my idea is that horror is about the incomprehensive and the problem with the horror movies I see is that they feature a lot of common tropes like wide open mouth, fleshy monsters, ghosts, slashes villains, jump scares... if it's familiar it's less scary. if it has an animal or human form and obeys the laws of physics it becomes predictable.

    so I would make a horror movie where the "monster" is abstract or invisible. The xfiles has an episode where an invisible elephant causes havoc or where everyone who steps into the shadow of a guy disappears. Stuff like that.

          an imagination is good for creating a cool horror movie, but that movie had better not require imagination to enjoy it
