That blackcoats daughter film is awful. I saw it last year on Netflix under a different name. Don't even think I was able to finish it if I remember correctly, just so dull.

Edit

It was called February last year. Put me to sleep.

I'll give it a watch tomorrow, really liked the trailer looks pretty graphic!

I saw the trailer, I think it looks bloody awful?! So you say it's good? I may have to try it?

I'm pretty much the same, I'm in my 40's, horror fan and to be honest I find it hard to discover decent horror movies these days.

Well, cool, recommend me some more stuff, if you don't mind. Feel like the genre has staled a little in the past few years.

Is anyone here coming to Horrorcon this year?

Went last year and had a blast with people like Pin head and the guy who plays Jason in attendance.

This year it's in May at the same venue magenta science museum hull.

Have to agree when I'm off work I can watch between 5-10 horror films and might be lucky to find one that's half decent.

The genre is great having so many good sub genres but zombie and possession films are so over saturated.

I don't even bother with zombie films now: TWD has become such a parody of itself (though I still watch and enjoy it) that I really CBA to watch any more. Having said that, I do fancy Train to Busan so will watch that soon.

I feel like there was a period when i was watching them all the time and loving most of them. Now I hardly see any.

I did enjoy Shyamalan's The Visit (but called the twist after a few minutes) and I have yet to see Lights Out and Don't Breathe, which I've heard are decent.

Train to Busan is excellent for me it's more the camera work and the sense of tension in this film more the impending threat.

I generally find films grounded in realism to be scarier like home invasion films like You're Next.

Poser, Train to Busan is great! And to me it's more of an 'infected' than 'zombie' movie (ala 28 Days Later)

The Autopsy of Jane Doe was really good as well.

Ouija: Origin of Evil is also a notable choice.

Yeah I enjoyed The Autopsy Of Jane Doe.

A lot of friends didn't rate it but I loved the atmosphere and the story it was telling with a simple setting of a moruge.

I mentioned Extraterrestrial on another thread. A few years old and pretty silly but genuinely unnerving at times and well worth a watch

Decent horror really is hard to find, but if I think of any hidden gems I'll come back to this thread.

Each to their own. I'm still going to give it a watch, dark and dreary is cool with me.

Still need to watch The Eyes of my Mother and The Autopsy of Jane Doe, they are on my watch list. You guys might be interested in the following:



Looks similar to Shutter Island. I'll give it a watch, not particularly excited by it, the 2 and a half hour running time has me a bit worried :?

Saw the trailer for that when I went to see Resident Evil last week.

It seemed to come off as a serious attempt at Slither or something.

I noticed that 'It Follows' is on Film4 on Saturday - worth a watch?
