not at all a horror film - but the stanford prison experiment is excellent

I'm holding out hope for A Cure for Wellness.

Probably the last best recent horror flick is The Babadook. And High-Rise was pretty good, too. But it's not straight horror. (Then again, The Babadook probably isn't either.)

Re: Horror Film Discussion & Recommendations

i think the people who don't like it are the same people who didn't like the witch.

it is less rewarding of your patience than the witch but still worth seeing. never seen a movie create such creepy tone out of absolutely nothing before

Re: Horror Film Discussion & Recommendations

I enjoyed A Cure for Wellness. Ultimately it was a simple story, but the narrative was well paced, making me guess a few times. The acting was believable and the cinematography was gorgeous.
