Enter with caution : scares abound inside!
10. The Midnight Meat Train
Ever been scared of riding the train alone late night, especially now that the Dubai Metro is fully operational? Do not watch this movie then. Adapted by a Clive Barker short story, 2008′s “The Midnight Meat Train” is a truly chilling ride all the way through that features creepy atmospherics and a mindblowing performance by Vinnie Jones.
The movie was unfortunately a victim of studio politics, after which Lionsgate head dumped it onto low dollar theatres and DVD which was a real shame considering the quality present here. Even though the title may evoke the feeling that this will be a gorefest, it’s actually a potent detective story with some unique elements blended in and makes up for a great ride.
9. High Tension
The French have provided us with some of the greatest horror films of the decade, and High Tension was the first. Directed by Alexander Aja who later on went to direct the taut “The Hills Have Eyes” and the mediocre “Mirrors”, the movie changes a rather simple plot into a brutal and gory tense ride that lives up to its title.
Featuring some of the most taut sequences ever filmed, the movie gained an instant cult following for it’s unrelentless brutality and an especially controversial twist ending that you will in no way see coming, which might annoy or impress you. Either way, the ending changes the whole meaning of the film and marks it as one of the best foreign horror films.
8. Dead End
Probably the most obscure movie on the list, Dead End is one surprising little gem. Made on a small budget and on an ultra creepy motorway, the film succeeds in tapping our darkest fears about being stuck in a circle late at night and the mysterious demons we find along the way. It’s darkly comic moments complement the scares brilliantly, and a slam bang twist ending makes sure you get something different than your average Hollywood fare.
If you can find it, do check it out.
