It’s that time of the year again, ladies and gentlemen. The leaves are changing color, the weather is getting cold, and the pumpkins are being placed on front porches. During these times, we snuggle up on our couches with popcorns in our hands, ready for the big scare. Here is a list of the latest horror movies to start your holiday just right.
Fourth on the list, we have “The Bye Bye Man.” The 2017 horror film tells a story of a mass murder taken place in 1969 in Madison, Wisconsin. The movie starts off with a man killing people on his block and as he shoots, he continually asks if anyone says “the name,” which can’t be spoken about. The movie continues on about these two couples who are suspicious of their relationships, which leads to “The Bye Bye Man” reappearing. The concept of this movie was brilliant, but at the same time, a little cliche.
Third, we have the 2016 thriller film, “Train to Busan.” The movie starts off with a chemical leak at a biotech plant which leads to the start of a zombie apocalypse. I know, “Zombie Apocalypse” has been done before, but all I’m saying is to watch the movie. It’s different from the others.
Second, we have the 2016 horror film “The Boy.” “The Boy,” directed by William Brent Bell and written by Stacey Menear, tells the story of a nanny, Greta Evans, who takes a trip to England in hopes of babysitting for the Heelshiers. Upon her arrival, the Heelshiers introduce her to their son who is supposedly a doll. If asked to rate this, I believe I would give it a good 7/10. Don’t get me wrong, it’s really good and the jumpscares are good as well.
The number 1 on the list is the 2017 thriller film, “Get Out.” The movie tells the story of the main character, Chris Washington, who makes preparations to meet the family of his white girlfriend. The movie continues with Rose’s (Chris’s girlfriend) brother, Jeremy, and their parents making concerning comments about black people. The movie also portrays a few disturbing traditions done in Rose’s family. This movie does a good job of portraying the conflicts of interracial couples when it comes to acceptance of family. Everything from the cast to the setting, jump scares, and turn of events was thoughtfully illustrated.
