If you're planning a Halloween movie night with your friends and you need a new set of films to scream to, here are a few titles compiled, screened, and summarized by Thysz Estrada that will definitely provide the chills this fright night weekend!
1. À l'intérieur, Julien Maury and Alexendre Bustillo, 2007
Crazy woman hunts down a pregnant woman with the aim of ripping out her unborn child. Claustrophobic, intelligent and utterly terrifying, it's been called the all-female version of The Shining. Get ready for mini heart attacks. Perfect for that sleepover you're planning!
2. Violator, Eduardo Dayao, 2014
It's one of the best thrillers to come out of local cinema. Violator is a masterful take on the usually tired trapped-during-a-storm subgenera. In a cramped, almost flooded police station, five men are forced to stay overnight with a kid who claims to be the devil himself. The pace was made for audiences to anticipate the mind-numbing climax. To call their ordeal a long night would be an understatement.
3. House (Hausu), Nobuhiko Obayashi, 1977
An all-girl trip to the boondocks turns into a life-and-death battle versus a monster house. Gory yet fun, House is a rollercoaster ride focused on a Japanese girl's worst vacation. Expect a vengeful witch, hungry water wells, and the occasional soft porn—crazy.
