First up: Lake Mungo Arclight Films If you're a fan of psychological thrillers, haunted house movies, or twist endings, this movie is exactly what you're looking for! Brief Synopsis: strange things start happening after a girl is found drowned in a lake. 2. The Loved Ones Madman Films If you've ever thought to yourself, "What if Brian DePalma's Carrie and Rob Reiner's "Misery" had a baby, and it was mixed with a Saw movie?" Well, you have weird taste, my friend...or you're just looking to watch The Loved Ones! Brief Synopsis: when Brent turns down his classmate Lola's invitation to the prom, she concocts a wildly violent plan for revenge. 3. Ghostwatch BBC So technically, if you were a child or teenager in England in 1992, you may have already had the (dis)pleasure of experiencing Ghostwatch. But for those of us who lived stateside or who were too young to remember it, we truly missed out on something great. The movie has become infamous in the years since it aired for being one of the few TV specials ever aired to give children PTSD. It even inspired the creators of The Blair Witch Project! Brief Synopsis: The BBC gives over a whole evening to an investigation into the supernatural. Four respected presenters and a camera crew attempt to discover the truth behind "The most haunted house in Britain." They think they are in control of the situation. They think they are safe. Ninety minutes later, the BBC and the country was changed, and the consequences are still felt today. 4. Ginger Snaps Motion International Another film that didn't become as popular in the US, Ginger Snaps was a bit of a surprise from our neighbors to the north! It's deliciously gory and is underscored by a beautiful use of practical effects! Brief Synopsis: two death-obsessed sisters, outcasts in their suburban neighborhood, must deal with the tragic consequences when one of them is bitten by a deadly werewolf. 5. Slither Senator International If you think the gore of Ginger Snaps is little kid stuff, maybe it's time to take it up a few notches. James Gunn has abilities beyond the superhero universe, as he proves in this foray into body horror! Brief Synopsis: a small town is taken over by an alien plague, turning residents into zombies and all forms of mutant monsters. 6. Eden Lake Optimum Releasing For a movie that's brutal in a totally new way, Eden Lake is sure to leave you unable to look away. Be warned: this is a tough one to watch. Brief Synopsis: refusing to let anything spoil their romantic weekend break, a young couple confront a gang of loutish youths with terrifyingly brutal consequences. 7. Goodnight Mommy Stadtkino Verleih If foreign horror strikes your fancy, this Austrian film is right up your alley! It leans heavily into the theme of children's imagination and how it can run more than a little wild sometimes (note: be sure to watch the original Austrian-version, not the remake with Naomi Watts).Brief Synopsis: twin boys move to a new house with their mother after she has face-changing cosmetic surgery, but under the bandages is someone the boys don't recognize. 8. American Mary IndustryWorks Pictures If you aren't familiar with the Soska Sisters yet, American Mary is the perfect starter film. If you're a fan of directors like Eli Roth or David Cronenberg, the vibe of American Mary will fit in with their created universes, but with a uniquely female perspective! Brief Synopsis: the allure of easy money sends Mary Mason, a medical student, into the world of underground surgeries which ends up leaving more marks on her than her so-called "freakish" clients. 9. Repo! The Genetic Opera Lionsgate If you're a fan of horror musicals, Repo! The Genetic Opera may be exactly the fix you need! This cult-classic is filled with biotech nightmares, catchy music, and... Paris Hilton? If that doesn't pique your interests, I don't know what will! Brief Synopsis: a worldwide-epidemic encourages a biotech company to launch an organ-financing program similar in nature to a standard car loan. The repossession clause is a killer, however. 10. And Black Water AV Pictures Sometimes, the scariest things in horror movies are the things that truly exist. And when a movie involving crocodiles is based on a true story, it definitely adds an extra edge to your moviegoing experience! Brief Synopsis: a terrifying tale of survival in the mangrove swamps of Northern Australia.
