5 Frightening Films To Share This HalloweenNovember 2nd, 2016
At Premiere Outdoor Movies, we’re providing more than movie screen rentals in Princeton, NJ; we’re giving people another way to get together and enjoy each other’s company. Nothing huddles the crowd together quite like a horror or thriller film.
Here are 5 of our favorite terrifying films:
● The Shining – In one film, Stanley Kubrick proved that he could be inducted into the horror film director hall of fame. Stephen King’s novel of the same name is transcribed to the screen in a film that stays with you long after the run-time. Jack Torrance’s (Jack Nicholson) slow descent into madness is impossible to turn away from as he and his family take up residence in an unoccupied hotel for the winter. The Shining is undoubtedly one of the best horror films of all time, enjoyable on the second, third and tenth viewing.
● V/H/S – A series of horror shorts that are loosely tied together from an over-arching plot, V/H/S is fast-paced, making good use of its time to tell six stories that range from gory to psychological horror. Each story is extremely different, but the most stand-out short has to be “The Sick Thing That Happened To Emily When She Was Younger,” a story that merges the paranormal with the evil side of human nature for an impressive plot twist.
● The Ring – Gore Verbinski translates a famous Japanese horror film for a Western audience, weaving a creepy narrative that keeps you watching, even if it’s through your fingers. When four teenagers die, newspaper reporter Rachel Keller investigates a videotape that is said to have killed all of them seven days after they watched it.
● Psycho – The quintessential thriller of the 20th century, Alfred Hitchcock directs a chilling narrative about a motel where guests are stalked and killed. Light on blood and gore by today’s standards, the film features plot twists that are still looked upon as some of the best ever done on film.
● The Invitation – A grieving divorcee returns to the home of his wife and her new boyfriend to spend an evening with friends they haven’t seen in years as a seemingly uncomfortable dinner party becomes something much more sinister. The Invitation has been heralded as one of the best recent thrillers and for good reason, packing twists that are shiver-inducing.
● Honorable Mentions – While not “pure horror,” Shaun of The Dead and The Cabin In The Woods are fantastic examples of what happens when a horror plot is merged with another classic film genre.
