Do you like scary movies? The rolling horror thread 2020

The remake is a completely different film really, linked by vague themes and a name - even the colour palate is completely flipped but I think it’s still good

Have you seen the original version of The Haunting? I just rewatched that recently and fell in love with it again.

The one from 1963? I don’t think so. Thanks for the recommendation.

It’s a long time since I’ve seen it but The Changeling (1980) might be up your street

I really liked The Witch from 2016. Thought that was creepy as hell.

The Others I have seen, also seen the black and white original film it was loosely based upon, can’t remember it off the top of my head though…

This might do it for you too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VQFXTNvBLKI

This is an episode from an old TV show, Dead of Night. Recommended this to @midnightpunk recently and I think he really liked it.

Thanks I’ll watch this evening.

Strangely, I see on that YouTube link there is Ghosts Of The Underground. That’s a fantastic documentary about haunted parts of the London Underground. I’d love to go to all those closed off Underground stations. It really gets my imagination running wild. Not that I believe in ghosts anymore. Unfortunately.

This sounds right up my street - thanks for sharing!

Just watched it again. Such a classic documentary. It never gets old.

How is Possessor? Is it very arty or is it something my wife can follow along while flicking through her phone? She doesn’t mind weird but she doesn’t like films that go out of their way to be abstract or up their own arse for want of a better word

looks like one for the Scarred for Life thread!

Nah it isn’t arty at all. It’s quite all out action really. Similar in tone to that Overlord but a lot lot better

Wait not Overlord but that film which came out at a similar time about being implanted with AI and that

Upgrade? Man I loved that film

Yeah thats the one. I wasn’t keen on that but loved Possessor so reckon if you liked Upgrade then this will be right up your street

Why am I only finding out about this thread just now? I really need to venture outside of the horror thread once in a while… :slight_smile:
