As Spielberg helmed ET, a film about suburban dreams, he produced a suburban horror. Hooper of Texas Chainsaw Massacre fame, gave us an unforgettable film about a family built under shady circumstances. (See what I did there?) It’s definitely one of the more charming thrillers out there that features a family that genuinely goes through great lengths for their daughter. Poltergeist is an excellent horror film to see with loved ones minus the pot smoking and face tearing. Also, there are a bunch of chilling urban legends surrounding the movie. Look up the Poltergeist Curse if you want to learn more.

The Evil Dead (All Of Them, especially the first) - Sam Raimi - 1981 / 1987 / 1992
The Evil Dead franchise is an awesome example of a rags to riches horror trilogy. The first has a lot of heart. It was made with nearly no budget and is genuinely creepy thanks to Raimi’s fresh vision. The film proves that with a hungry creative mind, a fun idea, and support from loved ones a damn good movie can be made. So where do you go when your first project is a hit? You take all of the things fans loved from the first film and add more stuff. The Evil Dead 2 is The Evil Dead 1 with more stuff. Weather or not that’s a good thing is debatable, but within the case of Raimi’s second effort, it’s quite the spectacle. The special effects are dazzling, our characters are more over the top, and the climax is just plain bonkers. The Army of Darkness may be a whole different beast, but is a welcomed tangent to the series. The last entry of trilogy focuses more on our womanizing, super macho protagonist Ash. We see him in the first movie as kind of a wimp and whether or not his character growth into a badass hunk is intentional is anyone’s guess. But Raimi takes Ash’s character to hyperbolic proportions in the third film thrusting Campbell’s character into cult superstardom. In short, The Evil Dead franchise is just groovy man, go see it.#thevildead #armyofdarkness #evildead #goovy #sketch #illustration #design #art #Inktober #inktober2go #inktober2014 #KuretakeInktober @kuretakezig_usa
The Descent is an expertly paced horror film. It starts off slow, uncomfortable, and claustrophobic as our group of daredevils spelunk around in an uncharted cave. Little do they know they’re not the only ones who inhabit it. Most modern horror bombard you with scares and thrills within the first two acts which ensures that the last will leave much to be desired. Not the Descent. Shit doesn’t really hit the fan until nearly halfway through the film. Marshall and Reid’s adventure horror flick is best enjoyed with a group of friends and a dark living room. It’s a lot of fun.#thedescent #horror #movie #art #doodle #sketch #Inktober #inktober2go #inktober2014 #KuretakeInktober @kuretakezig_usa #fanart
Let the Right One In is the greatest vampire romance ever told. Horrors and shocks aside, Alfredson’s film adaptation of two kids that fall for each other under uncanny circumstances will move you and get under your skin. Heartwarming yet chilling. Melancholy yet electrifying. Twilight eat your heart out.#Lettherightonein #letmein #vampire #horror #romance #art #doodle #sketch #doodle #Inktober #inktober2go #inktober2014
After Hitchcock’s Psycho, everyone and their mother wanted to make that kind of thriller. Most would go for pure shock value like Blood Feast giving birth to splatter films. Only a handful would riff off of Psycho’s cerebral themes. Polanski’s Repulsion is literally a film about a gorgeous young lady played by Catherine Deneuve losing her mind. Though it won’t scare the bejeezus out of you, it’s guaranteed to disturb and shock you. If you enjoy psycho, you’ll get a kick out of Repulsion. #repulsion #roman #polanski #Inktober #inktober2go #inktober2014 #doodle #sketch #art #illustration
Damn bro, after Seeing We Need To Talk About Kevin years ago, I always hoped Ezra Miller would be the rebellious Jason Todd/Red Hood. Too bad that’s not going to happen. #theflash #dc #redhood #ezramiller @ezramillerofficial #Inktober
Grotesque and tragic, The Fly marks the highest point of David Cronenberg’s body horror series. Given the thematic complexities of Cronenberg’s previous films, this remake of a 1958 classic may be the easiest to digest for audiences unfamiliar with his filmography. The Fly is Frankenstein, it’s The Metamorphosis, it’s Beauty and The Beast, it’s so many things so neatly tied into one expertly crafted film. For those who enjoy a bit of the ambiguous, fear not, there’s always Videodrome, Scanners, and The Brood for conclusions that are open to interpretation. Jeff Goldblum’s portrayal of man deteriorating into “Brundlefly” is unforgettable due to exquisite acting and outrageous practical effects#thefly #goldblum #cronenberg #drawing #art #doodle #Inktober #inktober2go #inktober2014 #KuretakeInktober @kuretakezig_usa
If you have no idea what this movie is about and have managed to escape its historical influence you are probably the luckiest person alive. Go see it. Psycho inspired generations of films and transcends the genre of horror. Giving you even the smallest idea of what it’s about treads spoiler territory. Long story short, it’s super rare to find a film that so eloquently changes the direction of its plot.#psycho #normanbates #hitchcock #batesmotel #ink #KuretakeInktober #Inktober #inktober2go
Creepy, funny, and at times heartbreaking, American Werewolf in London is one of the rare breed of horror films that can give you the feels. David Kessler’s (David Naughton) plight of backpacking goofball turned rabid monster gives us insight into a very human, relatable werewolf story. Fortunately there’s plenty of humor in this one and is a must watch for those who enjoy a bit of comedy in their Lycan adventures.
