Recently I’ve given a lot of flack to movies like A Serbian Film and I Spit On Your Grave for not being the extreme shockers they pose to be or are hyped up as in the horror media in general. So which movies does Life After Undeath find disturbing? Here are our top 5 most disturbing films of all time as of 2011. Nobody who likes having a normal brain should ever watch these movies. People who are not regularly exposed to this type of genre film would do well to avoid all of the movies on this list. They WILL change you.
5. Cannibal Holocaust (1980)
I despise real scenes of violence or animal abuse, and all the movies on this list feature just that. Cannibal Holocaust was banned in several countries. Its director, Ruggero Deodato, was arrested and charges of murder investigated due to the realistic and graphic nature of many of the death scenes. A scene of impalement in particular caused an uproar, and Deodato had show in court how the effect was achieved. Several real… Continue reading
The past few years there have been a spate of horror movie remakes coming from Hollywood, but which of these have been the most successful? Life After Undeath investigates to bring you the Top 5 Highest Grossing Horror Movie Remakes of All Time (as of January 2011 – All stats from BoxOfficeMojo.com).
Coming in at fifth place on the highest grossing horror remake list, with $76.23m to its name is The Ring Two, sequel to the popular American remake of Ringu. I must admit to being surprised at this movie making the list, because I thought it was terrible and exceptionally unscary, forever pounding in the ass my memory of the first, and vastly superior, supernatural horror extravaganza. Reviews for the movie were overall negative and movie review site Rotten Tomatoes gives it a 20% fresh rating. In other words it’s rotten. Rotten as the teeth on that pissed off wet dead girl.
Sweet Care Bears caring all over each other in a circle Batman,… Continue reading
I have no psychic third eyes or mad palm reading skillz, but here are 5 upcoming horror movies that I think might be worth checking out in 2012.
1. The Devil Inside
Due for release: January 2012
Director: William Brent Bell
Starring: Fernanda Andrade and a pissed off demon
Genre: Supernatural horror, mockumentary
After her mother had committed three murders 20 years prior during an exorcism and is placed in a psychiatric hospital, a woman takes a film crew to find help for her. A series of exorcisms are attempted that, naturally, go horribly wrong. The only surviving evidence is the documentary footage.
The mockumentary style is especially effective when it comes to this kind of movie, and from the trailer it looks promising. It also has an, in my opinion, creepy movie poster. I for one will definitely be watching.
2. The Woman in Black
Due for release: February 2012
Director: James Watkins
Starring: Daniel Radcliffe and a pissed off ghost
Genre: Supernatural horror, horror thriller
A young lawyer has to settle the estate… Continue reading
Everybody loves a list. Most horror movie sites have some kind of top 10 horror movies list, and I feel like Life After Undeath should have one too. Usually these lists are populated with standard fanfare like Nightmare on Elm Street or The Exorcist. My problem with those movies is that they’re not scary these days. So here it is the top 10 scariest horror movies that frightened me personally. Because this is a list of scary horror movies and not one a list of best horror movies there aren’t any horror comedies on the list. These have numbers, but they’re not really arranged in order of scariness. All these movies are available from our online horror store.
10. Black Christmas (1975)
Before Freddie and before Jason and before Scream there was Billy. He was the original stalker, and this could be considered the father of all slashers. Phone calls were coming from inside the house long before anybody else thought of it. The film contains almost no music and silence is used to good effect throughout. Black Christmas… Continue reading
