BLOOD RED SKY (2021)
The horror action thriller “Vampire Vs Plane Hijackers” Blood red sky is a project that director Peter Thorwarth had wanted to do for 16 years before it was finally released, and his dedication to the concept paid off: within a month of his Netflix debut, it had already been seen in more than 50 million families around the world. Not surprising, as it is a film that can appeal to both horror fans and action fans. If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s worth a look. It’s fun, exciting, and sometimes thrilling to see a vampire mother fight a group of dangerous criminals to keep her son (who isn’t a bloodsucker) safe on an international flight.
ROAD OF FEAR (2021)
Here’s a three-for-one special, as Netflix has released an entire trilogy of Way of fear Films (inspired by RL Stine’s series of books) that director Leigh Janiak made one after another. Over the course of the trilogy, Janiak shows us horrific things that happened in the cursed city of Shadyside in 1666, 1978 and 1994, allowing the series to remember films such as La Strega, Friday 13th, Other He shouted at different points along the route. The films tell the story of an evil entity who, every two decades or so, owns the Shadysiders and pushes them to kill. Janiak and his collaborators created a compelling story with some good twists, and brought it to the screen with fantastic style and a fantastic soundtrack.
IN LOVE (2019)
Despite being a Blumhouse production and Universal release, director JD Dillard’s treasure it seemed to fly under the radar when VOD came out in 2019. It’s a shame, because this is a really cool creature feature that deserves more attention than it got. Most of its 83 minutes is a show with an actor, with Kiersey Clemons playing Jenn, a young shipwrecked woman who ran aground on a small uninhabited island. As if being stuck in the middle of the ocean wasn’t scary enough, Jenn also discovers that there is some kind of carnivorous monster lurking in the water around the island – and this thing comes by wading the beach every night, looking for something. to eat. Perhaps more people would have seen him already had he not been called treasure; there’s not much reason for it to have that title.
BRAM STOKER’S DRACULA (1992)
There have been many tales of Bram Stoker’s story Dracula over the decades, but Francis Ford Coppola has left his mark on history by bringing it to the screen with an impressive cast, stunning visual style and a romantic touch: Vampire Dracula (Gary Oldman) believes Mina Murray (Winona Ryder) is the reincarnation of the love he lost 400 years ago. But before you pass out for this guy, keep in mind that he is also such an evil monster that he can set a crucifix on fire just by looking at it. Will Van Helsing (Anthony Hopkins, who is killing him) be able to stop Dracula before he steals Winona Ryder from Keanu Reeves?
SUMMON DARKNESS (2019)
It is 1988 and the heart of America has been hit by a series of murders in which satanic symbols have been drawn on the walls at the crime scenes. After meeting at a rock concert in Indiana, three girls (Alexandra Daddario, Maddie Hasson, Amy Forsyth) and three boys (Keean Johnson, Logan Miller, Austin Swift) decide to continue the party in a private residence … and in the end of the night, they will all know everything there is to know about those murders. Some of them won’t even live to see the morning. Director Marc Meyers We summon the darkness it’s a really fun movie, with more humor than the synopsis would lead you to believe, funny characters, twists on expectations (see Johnny Knoxville’s serious role as an evangelist) and lots of action and violence. Also, one character chooses to use an outboard boat engine to defend against their attackers, which is fantastic.
FESTIVAL OF HELL (2018)
Director Gregory Plotkin’s Hell party it’s an incredibly simple film, so I’m not sure why it took six credited writers to put the story and script together. For most of its duration, the film focuses on a group of friends, including Amy Forsyth’s We summon the darkness – as they roam the titular location, a horror-themed amusement park, on Halloween night. A masked slasher called The Other (Stephen Conroy) is also making his way into this very cool looking place, who obviously ends up targeting the characters we followed, taking them out one by one. Lionsgate hoped Hell party would be the start of a new slasher franchise, but it was sadly overlooked when it hit theaters in 2018. We may never get a Hell party 2, but the movie works on its own and is a fun way to fill 89 minutes. If you love slasher movies and haven’t given this a chance yet, check it out while on Netflix.
THE UNKNOWN (2008)
There have been plenty of home invasion horror films released in recent years, but one of the best films the subgenre has to offer is still writer / director Bryan Bertino’s 2008 film debut, Foreigners. Kristen McKay (Liv Tyler) and James Hoyt (Scott Speedman) are late to deal with relationship problems when three masked people show up at their door with the intention of harassing and killing the couple simply “Because you were home”. Foreigners it’s a simple, well-executed film that is actually creepy due to how realistic and recognizable the scenery is. It is very easy for the viewer to imagine himself in this scenario. You might be frustrated with the way Kristen and James handle the situation at times, but you don’t want to be in their place.
THE GUEST (2014)
Some may argue that Adam Wingard’s The guest it’s a thriller rather than a horror movie, but it’s set around Halloween, it’s inspired by the likes of Halloween Other The Terminator, and has direct visual references to the third and fourth Halloween movie, so it works like horror in my book. Dan Stevens offers a great interpretation of David, a war veteran who is invited to the family home of a fallen comrade. It seems like a positive presence at first, but soon begins to exhibit strange and creepy behavior. David is dangerous and the only family member to suspect that there is something strange about him before it all crumbles into violent chaos is the heroine of the film Anna, played by Maika Monroe. Not only The guest tells an intriguing and emotional story, but also has a highly captivating ’80s vibe (despite being set in the present day) and a terrific soundtrack.
FRIDAY the 13th (2009)
2009 Friday 13 the movie doesn’t have the greatest reputation, but in my opinion it’s one of the best horror franchise reboots ever made because it’s content to be just another Jason Voorhees movie (now moving fast) that makes people who commit the mistake of entering his woods. The script mixes elements of the first four Friday 13 films and explores an idea presented at the end of Part 2, and the movie features some fun performances, cute kills, and lots of free nudity. I never understood why some fans from before F13s was not in this. Some of the criticisms stem from misunderstandings: no, Jason is not a marijuana grower simply because he grows weed on his territory.
Mike Flanagan is one of the more interesting directors we’ve worked in the horror genre today, and thankfully he has a great set up on Netflix. Their collaboration gave us the Stephen King adaptation Gerald’s game, The Hill House Infestation Other Bly Manor, and the next series Midnight snack – and it all started with the release of Netflix Silence. Played by Kate Siegel (who also wrote the screenplay with Flanagan), this is a very straightforward and straightforward anti-home invasion slasher, but it stands out from the pack of other films like this one in that Siegel’s character, Maddie, She is a strong, interesting character, an easy-to-root heroine who is also deaf, who her attacker (John Gallagher Jr.) uses to her advantage when he sneaks into her house. Flanagan has several fantastic voices in his filmography and this 82-minute Heroine vs. Slasher in a secluded spot is one of its best.
