What's a good film to watch this weekend by myself late at night if I don't like jump scares?

My home movies, pm for link!

Watched The Gate (1987) last night and really enjoyed it. Terrible acting, but amazing script and creature effects. An absolutely underrated late '80s horror film, I'm actually surprised this doesn't have a bigger cult following. I am actually surprised it only received a PG13 rating at the time, there's some splattery effects in there. Totally fun the entire ride, would highly recommend to anyone who loves '80s/90s creature features.

If you've never had the privilege of watching Dead Alive or Bad Taste, I highly recommend them, especially if you enjoy campy splatter flicks.

If I'm not mistaken, at one point Dead Alive was considered THE goriest movie ever made. The Lawnmower scene made it on AMC's 100 scariest movie moments, simply because of how much gore and blood were involved. It was that over the top.

That's probably a big part of why Dead Alive doesn't air much in the US. The FCC would go ape****.

Hrrrrmmm.. dead alive 4K..

Idk.. the Vanilla bluray release was mehh.. they made the flic w/ bargain equipment..  not alot of fidelity in general.. The dark scenes were also very grey and blurry because of poor film sensitivity.

I guess that's probably not why people watch Dead Alive for.. buhhh.. yea 4K would be a money grab..

These screens were pulled from the bluray

Jackson is saying they look a lot better, and the article states they haven't been restored or re-released as of yet.  Quote from the article:

Despite being beloved by horror fans, neither film has to date been restored and re-released, but Jackson himself just revealed to Empire’s Film Podcast that 4K restorations are in the works!

“Anything from those films that is available is, like, 1990s Telecine things, which is the best that we had… compared now, they look bloody awful,” Jackson told the podcast. “I just haven’t re-released them because, if I do, I want them to look really good. We’ve actually done some experiments. They look bloody fantastic. They look like they’re shot on 35mm.”

“So yeah, what we’ll do now is.. get really nice 4K copies of these fully restored and back out into circulation again,” Jackson added.


I'm just glad to see one of my favorites being potentially restored, but the DVD copy is all I've ever seen and I'm 110% content with that!  Also, Jackson probably has no real need for money after the success of all the LOTR films and I don't see a 4k Dead Alive really being a cash-cow, seems more like a project of passion than anything.

So when it comes to horror movie suggestions, I usually recommend some but there are some caveats:

You want a movie that has the possibility of horrifying you and that said movie is fictional in nature. If not then I could just recommend instructional videos on eye/knee surgery or the breeding habits of human bloat flies.

Anyway here is a list of movies I found to be particularly disturbing and/or scary. It's best to not look up as much as possible about each of these before watching:

1. Martyrs (2008 - ahem, there was a 2015 remake apparently? Not needed, refuse to watch. Revenge thriller I guess you could call it?)

2. The Road (2009 - A film adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's novel of the same name. Bleak. Post-apocalyptic survival.)

3. Bone Tomahawk (2015 - Old west frontier setting, rescue the damsel in distress.)

4. The Descent (2005 - Cave exploration gone awry.)

5. [REC] (2007 - NOT THE AMERICAN REMAKE - Found footage film from within an apartment building quarantined by the CDC.)

6. It Follows (2014 - Abstinence propaganda of the best kind.)

The Road was definitely the feel-good movie of 2009!

Bone Tomahawk is rough; just the one particular scene. Don't have much taste for shock horror these days. Plain gore doesn't bother me. Terrifier on netflix is supposed to be similar in "appeal" as far as shock value goes.

Yeah, it is. I only mentioned it because it's easy to see why people may have moments where they get scared during the film

Terrifier was great!

I loved how the main guy would still make faces and act stuff out after the kills, like "guess I ****ed that one up a lil, the ***** stabbed me"

Has to be the most fun horror movie I've seen in a while
People in the 1980s, in general, were clearly just better than we are now in every measurable way.

The dumber the reason the more it must be done

Movies that I generally found scary on first watch:

The Descent

Paranormal Activity

Insidious
I love The Exorcist, The Shining, The Thing, Alien.... But I've seen them all too many times to recall how scary they were to me originally.

There’s a Korean movie, “a tale of two sisters” I think it’s called, similar to the grudge which I also thought was crazy scary. Hereditary was also very good, some scenes from that movie are burned into my brain!

Watched The Void on NF a few days ago, it had some neat ideas and I love seeing practical monster effects being used to that extent. But the movie was only OK, there was a lot more they could've done with it. You get the sense the script was cut back a lot.

I agree... it had some rad parts but it left me wanting a lot more.

Have you watched Mandy yet?

I really enjoyed it.

Yeah, I'm a sucker for Nic Cage movies. Is he a good actor or a bad actor? We may never know.
