Posts Tagged ‘Creep (2014)’

This is Part 2 of the movies I watched during the spooky season. I liked most of the films in this second part, especially the two found footage films, Creep and The Houses October Built. I cannot go into much detail about either film without spoiling them. Creep is about a videographer who answers an online ad to film a day in the life of a dying man. It is weird, creepy, cringey, and one of my favorite films on this list. The Houses October Built documents five friends taking a road trip across America to visit haunted house attractions, but they soon discover that not all haunted houses are make-believe and harmless fun. I highly recommend both films for a creepy good time.

Two other films I recommend are both Netflix Originals, 1922 and A Classic Horror Story. 1922 is based on a short story written by Stephen King. It is about a farmer who slowly descends into madness and faces dire consequences after making a dark and deadly decision. A Classic Horror Story is an Italian horror film that appears to be something familiar to horror movie fans, but turns out to be something altogether different. Again, I cannot share much about this film without spoiling the gruesome details.

Other films worth checking out include Aftermath (partly based on a true story), Pulse, the Japanese horror film (goosebumps guaranteed from the eerie encounter with the ghost woman), Let’s Scare Jessica to Death (atmospheric and eerie), The Brood (directed by David Cronenberg and contains disturbing body horror), Dark Was the Night (beast in the woods wreaks havoc on a sleepy little town), and Malevolent (pretending to see something you don’t can backfire).

There were two movies on my list that I deem duds. The ultra-low budget film, Driller Killer, is at the bottom of the movie barrel and is the worst movie I have watched for any of my marathons. Driller Killer is the absurd tale about an artist who goes insane and decides to trade his paintbrush for a power drill. Not too far behind is the boring film, Session 9. It takes place in an insane asylum where an asbestos removal crew has been hired to clean up the place, but uncovers a mysterious presence in the process. Surprisingly, both films have gained a cult following.

You can hear more of my thoughts about the movies that I watched in common with Kelsi, along with her thoughts, in our Halloween Horror Movie Marathon Wrap Up Part 2. In addition to a more in-depth commentary on these films, this chat also includes a discussion about acting and what makes a movie seem dated or not, and we both reveal our Top 10 Favorite Watches From the Halloween Marathon. It is another long video, but Kelsi again does a terrific job of including time stamps in the description section. As always, we hope you enjoy it and appreciate you taking the time to watch our video. Please consider giving us a thumbs up if you like it, and share it with a friend who likes listening to chats about horror movies.

That’s a wrap on the movies I watched during the spooky season, dear reader. It was a wickedly good time. I have one final post to publish recapping my Halloween Fun List, and then I’ll be switching gears and focusing on Christmas and the winter season. Happiness!
