Worst - Sadako vs Kayako


Definitely. The Sadako movies just get worse and worse. I was hoping for better.

Just watched "I am not a Serial Killer." Pacing is a little slow, but it's different enough to stay interesting all the way through.

I enjoyed

The Final Girls (2015)
Taissa Farmiga, Malin Akerman, Adam Devine


But it's definitely more comedy than horror, a group get sucked into a old horror film. The old horror film was definitely inspired by Friday the 13th, set in a camp with a masked killer who makes the ki ki ki ma ma ma sounds.

Also Maniac (2012)
Elijah Wood, Nora Arnezeder, America Olivo

Shot from the killers perspective all first person, has a awesome techno soundtrack

I really enjoyed the humorous take on the horror genre for both Cabin in the Woods and for Dale and Tucker Versus Evil. If you have not seen Dale and Tucker, it is fricken fantastic.

 

Also, Amigo Undead is a comedy horror that I just recently saw. If is filled with cheese and not much horror but it is fricken amazing.

For one I highly recommend: Wes Craven's 1982 classic, The Thing. Not to be confused with that CGI infested reboot travesty prequel of the same name from 2011. Craven's flick uses a ton of practical effects and lighting mixed with just the right amount of tension and atmosphere to craft a perfect horror movie experience.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0084787/

 

Other classics you might consider are Evil Dead 1 & 2 and their third sequel, Army of Darkness. For those that haven't seen these yet (and if you haven't go now you uncultured bastards) they star Bruce Campbell. The first is a legit horror, the second a dark horror with some comedy, and the third is more comedy with horror. The slider moves a bit with each one but they're all great. If you like those be sure to check out Ash vs Evil Dead.

Evil Dead: http://www.imdb.com/...ref_=fn_al_tt_2

Evil Dead II: http://www.imdb.com/...ref_=fn_al_tt_5

Army of Darkness: http://www.imdb.com/...ref_=fn_al_tt_4

Ash vs Evil Dead: http://www.imdb.com/..._=nm_flmg_act_3

 

My own guilty pleasure type of horror: Deep Rising. I kind of love the deep sea horror setting and this one is pretty decent, at least from my guilty pleasure side of things.

http://www.imdb.com/...ref_=fn_al_tt_1

 

If you're looking for a gorefest, there's a French horror called Inside you might like. It's certainly got the gore and is a truly F***ed up movie.

http://www.imdb.com/...ref_=fn_al_tt_2

 

As for bad. One for me that is just painful to watch with no redeeming qualities and is so bad that it fails to even meet a single criteria for a so bad it's good watch (and that's coming from someone that loves so bad it's good flicks), is without a single doubt, Dracula 3000. Badly acted, badly written, badly cast, and has no redeeming qualities whatsoever. 

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0367677/

 

I'm a bit of a horror movie nut from way back when so I can recommend a lot.

 

 

I generally avoid horror comedy. When I was a kid I saw Evil Dead and thought it was amazing, then I saw Army of Darkness and was so let down. They can be fun but I like the horror.

I watched Freddy vs. Jason again last night. I've come to the conclusion it's a Nightmare on Elm Street film and the Jason in it is an Elm Street version and not the Jason from the Friday the 13th films. Kind of like a charicature. I still enjoyed the last 30 minutes and I'm not complaining it was finally made. If I look at it as an Elm Street film it's pretty good.

 

There's one movie in the Freddy series that gets overlooked sometimes you might like. Have you seen Wes Craven's New Nightmare?

The Thing is a John Carpenter film. It's one of my favourite films, as well as the black and white original.

Deep Rising is one of my favourites also- not a lot of love for it but it's definitely a guilty pleasure.

Edit:
I should say I'm fairly brushed up on the classics, more so wondering if anything new is any good because the critics can't be trusted.

I'll try to think back on anything else I may have seen recently worth mentioning. But one thing I did see I kind of liked was a Korean-made zombie movie called Train to Busan. That one was pretty decent if you need something to fill some time and don't mind subtitles.

Seems to be the case with most movies. A lot of times ratings are complete opposite on whether i like, love or hate a movie.

I'll look into it- thanks. :)

I've lost all faith in modern critics. Though at the same time, critics have always sucked when it comes to horror. No matter how much anyone tries to convince me otherwise- Rosemary's Baby is a terrible movie. ;) I'm all about escapism and being entertained. :)
