This is a list of my favorite horror, thriller and science fiction movies. I’ve watched them all, some many times. If you have any recommendations for me, let me know in the comments! A Clockwork Orange (1971) — Hard to believe this was released almost a decade ago.. This one is still amazing today. It has a lot of things going for it that makes it even more amazing than it was back then. From the timescale and story to the performances, this movie is polarizing. Some say its “bad” while others love it as much as they hate it. I personally think its great!
Amityville Horror: The Stories Told Through the Eyes of a Repressed Killer (2010)
This one is almost too easy to recommend. It’s one of those movies that everyone should see at one point or another. Some people might find it offensive while others love it. I would recommend it to anyone who likes horror, or pretty much anything else. The stories behind the titles of the movies are fascinating and tied into the themes of the movie. The Amityville Horror, for example, is about a family whose basement is haunted by their dead loved ones. The Amityville Curse is about a group of neighbors who decide to keep their families’ pasts from them. The Mack is about a young man and his car who end up on an adventure that changes their lives forever.
Car parliament nightclub terror (2007)
This one isn’t much of a movie, but it’s definitely one to see. It follows a group of friends as they visit a nightclub, where they’re all super into each other. They become so immersed in one another that they forget they are in the shower, or bed, or somewhere else entirely. They have no idea that a couple of drunken drunks are on the other end of the club. They think they’re safe and sound when in fact they’re chilling with one another in the darkness. The movie ends with theDr. Who and her companions emerging from the nightclub with a chilling conclusion…
Halloween: The Curse of the Holidaze (1978)
This one isn’t really a Halloween movie, but it’s one of the best. It follows a family who try to survive the Halloween holiday in their own backyards. The Hogsmeade Haunt is where this one takes place. It has plenty of spooky stuff going on, from the kids trick-or-treating to the family trying to survive the year ahead. It’s also about a group of friends living in a house after their parents have died. It’s one of those movies that’s so much fun you want to see it more than once.
It’s A Wonderful Life (1947)
This is one of the classics. It follows a group of people as they travel through history, learning about the meaning of life, and how it relates back to home. It’s something so much younger than the time of The Mack, but so much more enjoyable. It also happens to be one of his best performances as a lead character.
The Mack (2004)
This film stars Dennis Hopper as a gangster who comes to Hollywood to star in a bogus war-related movie. But instead of fighting in the film, Hopper becomes a part of its culture, helping out at every opportunity. The film is packed with a lot of great moments, both comedy-indeed, and tragedy-indeed. Hopper’s character, Harry Morgan, is one of the more interesting ones. He’s an old-fashioned, calculating red-faced film maker who knows how to use the cliché to its full potential.
Amityville: It’s All About the Bill(2005)
This is one of those movies that everyone should see, but you probably won’t mention the title in front of anyone else. It follows a family on a trip to their hometown, where they discover the body of a missing young woman has been found nearby. The Amityville Horror follows as the family comes to terms with the true nature of their homeowner’s guilt and their search for the missing girl.
Alien Nation (1995)
This is one of those movies where you see it as a love story, but it’s really more in the realm of a sci-fi film. The story centers on an intergalactic insect who falls into a trap set by a species of humans. The movie ends with the landing of an alien spacecraft, which leads to an amazing conclusion.
Being5: Semifinal Drive-In Film(2006)
This is one of those movies where you see it as a romantic comedy, but it also has some dark elements that lead to a truly chilling ending. The film follows a group of friends as they travel through time, with the future and the past each having a different effect on them. It’s a classic, and even has a surprising nod to 2001: The Space Race.
Paranormal Activity 4: Darkness at an Exhibition Hall(2003)
This is another one that you probably won’t mention in front of anyone else. It follows a group of friends, who are all members of a secret society, as they step into a new role during a Renaissance Festival concert. They are each given a role that is either a challenge or a sign of what is ahead. It takes them on an adventure across time and space that is pretty much everything you want it to be.
Devil’s Advocate – Which is Your Favorite?(2008)
This is one of those movies that everyone should see, but you probably won’t speak it in front of anyone else. It follows three characters who are in all different situations, but who find common ground in their commonalities. It’s about a group of friends who, through their mutual struggles and triumphs, learn a lot about themselves and one another.
