The Conjuring Trilogy
We no longer present the Warrens, a couple of ghost hunters. James Wan was inspired by the true stories of Ed and Lorraine Warren to direct Conjuring: The Warren Files and The Enfield case. One takes place in the USA in the 1970s, the other at the dawn of the 1980s in England. As always, the filmmaker shines by his inventiveness in terms of rising anguish during tense scenes (everyone remembers the agonizing scene with the painting of the Nun).
The third episode, directed by Michael Chaves and called Under the Devil’s Empire, takes place in the 80s. Released this year at the cinema, its Blu-Ray is finally available! Conjuring, the ideal trilogy of a perfect Halloween.
Last train to Busan, the Korean movie with zombies
For those who still doubt it, Squid Game has proven that Korean productions aimed at mature audiences can work in the West. Last train to Busan is no exception to the rule, screened at the Cannes Film Festival in 2016! A Sang-ho Yeon film for zombie fans. In this fast-paced story, a father and daughter find themselves on a train going at full speed during an undead invasion.
With several other passengers, the man will try to survive and protect his little one against these very belligerent creatures. Because here, the zombies are not slow but able to run at an impressive speed. Something to reinforce the threat and make you shiver for Halloween.
Wedding Nightmare, when marriage turns into a killing spree
With Mayem: Legitimate Vengeance, The Babysitter and Babysitter: Killer Queen, Samara Weaving has proven to us that she is the new darling of horror cinema. Wedding Nightmare is no exception to the rule, a real horrific surprise. The pitch is simple: Grace is getting married and having the happiest day of her life. Now a newcomer to a family who made their fortune in board games, the young woman agrees to draw the cards with her new relatives.
But Grace draws the worst card and must now hide in the mansion while she is hunted down by her in-laws. The night turns into a nightmare and the bride will have to defend herself, even if it means spilling blood!
Get Out, the horror comedy set against a background of racism
With his first film, Jordan Peele hits hard. The comedian, produced by Blumhouse (American Nightmare, Paranormal Activity, Insidious…), directs this horrific comedy with a social background. In Get out, Chris Washington visits the in-laws of his girlfriend, Rose Armitage. But the young man quickly realizes that everyone is behaving strangelyeven the domestic workers, all black.
Jordan Peele’s feature film speaks head-on of racism and the filmmaker draws on his own experience to deliver a singular horrific tale. A must for a successful Halloween!
Grave, the very disturbing French horror film
For her first film, Julia Ducournau did not make in the lace. In addition to directing a horror production, the filmmaker about the disturbing, disturbing and gore with lots of organic scenes. Inspired by David Cronenberg’s cinema, Serious follows Justine, barely 16, a student in a large veterinary school. However vegetarian, the young girl must eat meat for the first time in her life during a hazing. She will then develop a love of the flesh and we let you imagine the rest …
Recall that since then, Julia Ducournau won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival for Titanium, another horror film. Certainly a filmmaker to follow while Serious promises to be the perfect choice for Halloween.
The Cabin in the Woods or the meta movie
The cabin in the woods remains a safe bet for lovers of meta movies. Written by Joss Whedon (Avengers, Buffy the vampire slayer…), The film is inspired by the great horror classics to make fun of it. As the name suggests, the plot takes place in a cabin in the middle of the forest, a tribute to the classic evil Dead. Five students go there for a vacation: Dana, Holden, Marty, Jules and Curt. The group will have to face an army of monsters and other creatures determined to kill them.
But behind this simplistic plot hides several big revelations that may surprise you! Note that at the casting, We find Chris Hemsworth: the actor is known to play Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
It 1 and 2, the creepiest clown in cinema
That has a right to a new adaptation divided into two chapters. The first takes place in the late 1980s while the second follows the same gang that became adults in 2016. A gang called Club of Failures confronting a terrible creature called ” That ”, Living in the city sewers. As Pennywise (Grippe-Sou), this creepy clown takes it out on the gang in the first chapter then returns in the second for revenge.
The Rat Club then tries to do away with this threat hovering over the city for years, which has caused the disappearance of many children. The promise of beautiful spooky moments for Halloween.
