    Ten Horror Films To Cure Your Quarantine Boredom.

    Ten Horror Films To Cure Your Quarantine Boredom and deliver some chills and thrills!

    1. The Invisible Man

    Via IMDB

    The Invisible Man is chilling and almost hypnotic and I found myself completely invested in the story from start to finish. Throughout the film, Whannel manages to deliver a few unpredictable gems accompanied by a thematically coherent plot, a dark almost snarling soundtrack, and relatable characters and a steady pace that keeps the viewer locked into the narrative.

    From start to finish the camera work, tension and ambiance lead you down a road you know is going somewhere dark. Whannel cleverly crafts a story that at times is an uncomfortable and uneasy watch, embraces almost everyone’s fears. The fear, the monster, you can’t see and the struggle to prove it is real and the struggle with your own sanity.

    2. Swallow

    Via IMDB

    What seemingly appears like a tale about a bored wealthy housewife and her mundane life, SWALLOW (IFC Films) takes a complex and powerful turn when young newlywed Hunter begins experimenting with swallowing foreign objects and as she fixates more and more on reaching larger and more dangerous objects the deeper we delve into the psyche of a woman trapped, feeling powerless and not addressing her own trauma and pain.

    A feminist body horror film — that’s something I never thought I’d say in one sentence. Swallow is a marvelous film and a great achievement in storytelling coupled with the brilliant performance of Haley Bennet as Hunter.

    3. We Summon the Darkness

    Via IMDB

    What seems like a debaucherous night of metal and booze and youthful wild abandon quickly takes a deadly twist in this incredibly fun new horror film. Three best friends embark on a road trip to a heavy-metal show, where they meet with three metal head wannabes and lead them back to one of the girls’ secluded country home for an after-party. There’s a serial killer obsessed with satanism on the loose and the booze is flowing but who can trust who?

    We Summon the Darkness is a genuinely enjoyable fun ride through that uses all the horror tropes and clichés to its advantage while still managing to pull a bloody rug from under you and delivers a simple horror formula film that is a fresh breathe air and a murderous amusing story filled with 80s aesthetics and good old fashion trashy horror charm.

    4. The Lodge

    Via IMDB

    A soon-to-be-stepmom is snowed in with her fiance's two children at a remote holiday village. Just as relations finally begin to thaw between the trio, strange and frightening events threaten to summon psychological demons from her strict religious childhood.

    I went into this film with no great expectations but it provides some great psychological thriller plot twists and the storyline itself unfolds and may catch you by surprise.

    5. HAUNT

    Via IMDB

    On Halloween, a group of friends encounters an "extreme" haunted house that promises to feed on their darkest fears. The night turns deadly as they come to the horrifying realization that some nightmares are real.

    Whilst very much done before horror genre, HAUNT succeeds in taking you a fun thrill ride with a much higher production level and plot twists. Produced by Eli Roth you can expect the right amount of blood and guts and scares.

    6. The Wretched

    Via IMDB

    A defiant teenage boy, struggling with his parent's imminent divorce, faces off with a thousand-year-old witch, who is living beneath the skin of and posing as the woman next door.

    A surprisingly entertaining film whilst you may see the twists coming still a good solid watch.

    7. Z

    Via IMDB

    A family finds themselves terrorized by their eight-year-old son's imaginary friend. I found this film to be quite underrated and must say it held my attention all the way through.

    8. Us

    Via IMDB

    This film is magnificent. Horror, mindbending, and social commentary all interweaved in a great slasher film. The film centers around a family's serene beach vacation and the rapid turn to chaos when their doppelgängers appear and begin to terrorize them.

    9. The Hunt

    Via IMDB

    A good boring afternoon watch. It's not a new plot or storyline but a good cat and mouse film with plenty of guts and guns and a badass female protagonist. Whist, it received high ratings by critics I think it pales in comparison to similar films of the past that have already crossed this path. Nevertheless, it's worth checking out to see what the hype was all about.

    10. HUSH

    Via IMDB

    Centred around a deaf and mute writer who has retreated into a home in the woods to live a solitary life must fight for her life in silence when a masked killer appears at her window.

    Again, I didn't go into this film with high expectations but was pleasantly surprised by the fear you feel for the lead character when she is unaware of whats happening at first around. A classic slasher horror film but with a great spin on traditional "final girls" tropes.
