15 More Horror Movies For Halloween
Another fifteen movies to quench your horror bug.
We just sped past Halloween, a time of the year again when Hollywood throws all sorts of horror movies at you. But most of the time, you’re left home re-watching some of your favorite horror films wondering why the horror genre has become so stagnant recently that a trip to the cinema doesn’t feel worth it. Well, who says you can’t have a great spooky time at the comfort of your home?
If you’ve already read about the top 10 little known horror movies for Halloween and actually seen them all, don’t think you are done. In fact, you’re far from it. Returning by popular demand, here’s 15 more horror movies for horror-lovers to revel in for years to come. This time, most of them are obscure but some are moderately well-known in the horror community. But we never let an opportunity to spread good movies around go by. And with that, here are 15 more horror movies that will scare you for months to come.
15) Eden Lake
British horror is getting rapid attention throughout the horror community and one of the most recent examples is this intense horror thriller ‘Eden Lake’. The plot follows a vacationing couple who unfortunately have fallout with a gang of teenage bullies. And the result isn’t too pretty. It’s a tense thriller that never lets go with its dark and gloomy tone and packs an extremely powerful and hard hitting ending that isn’t the usual horror fodder.
14) End of the Line
This obscure Canadian horror film has some of the most jolting jump scares in recent memory. A low budget movie set entirely in the subway system, it follows a group of subway passengers that must face off against a mysterious religious sect gone violent and other supernatural forces. The scares are abundant and the plot is fresh and unique enough to stay with you even after the movie. It shows its budget constraints in some scenes, but it’s a surprisingly potent horror movie.
13) The Children
You can’t go wrong with a tagline like ‘You brought them into this world. Now, they will take you out.’ This British chiller revolves around a family trip that goes unexpectedly awry as something strange starts happening to the children. It’s a hard task to take great performances out of child actors, and ‘The Children’ not only has some of the creepiest child actors, it also ends up with you majorly fearing the little ones. The tension slowly builds up to a boiling point and all hell breaks loose. It might lack in backstory, but it’s effective in what it tries to achieve.
God bless the French. Some of the most brutal and breathtaking horror movies have been provided to us by France and ‘Martyrs’ is possibly the most brutal and hard to watch horror movies you will ever see. It’s actually two movies in one – for the first half, it remains a chilling chase movie about a tormented girl exacting revenge on the people who kidnapped her when she was a kid. But if a movie has ever completely changed gears midway, it’s this one. The second half is a harrowing and deeply disturbing exercise in how far torture and physical pain can really go. It’s a polarizing experience that you will either love or hate, but it doesn’t change the fact that ‘Martyrs’ is a movie every hardened horror fan should check out.
This one’s from the US itself. A low budget creature feature about a couple held up at a gas station with a strange organism spreading in the vicinity, the movie has a lot of thrilling sequences and makes full use of its limited budget and confined location and is actually a well-shot film. There’s some effective acting in the film and the plot may be done unoriginal but never lets go. ‘Splinter’ is a recommended watch for those looking for a creepy creature feature to feast on.
