The Tobe Hooper film, written by Steven Spielberg, instills pure fear and terror, particularly for those who watched it as children. It was released in 1982 and follows the story of the youngest daughter of a quiet American family who disappears mysteriously after talking to the television. The film depicts a nightmarish adventure filled with disturbing and mischievous presences. The success of the first film led to the creation of two sequels, Poltergeist 2 – The Other Dimension (by Brian Gibson) and Poltergeist 3. Here We Go Again (by Gary Sherman), as well as a spin-off TV series.
Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982)
A classic of the genre, Halloween marked the nightmares of many young people, transforming an already creepy holiday into a pit of fear. We are obviously talking about October 31st and the protagonist of the story is the now-legendary Michael Myers. Interned in a psychiatric clinic at the age of six for killing his sister. Michael is fifteen when he manages to escape to return to his native village. It is thanks to the concomitance with the disguises for ‘the night of the witches’, that Michael will be able to carry out another massacre undisturbed. Halloween is one of the scariest horror movies ever because it stages the often empty need for evil: Michael hides the total lack of human feelings behind his cold white mask. It is one of the best amazing horror flicks.
The Descent (2005)
Director Neil Marshall churned out a masterpiece of angst like The Descent, only to fade away in the shadow of dubious films like Doomsday and Centurion (but he also shot several installments of Westworld and Game of Thrones ). The Descent is a female horror filmin which the protagonists are a group of adventure-loving friends who decide to go for their usual ‘lucky’ weekend away together. The characters in this thrilling horror movie embark on a perilous expedition into the Boreham quarries in the Appalachians. Only to find that their guide has led them astray, trapping them in the dark. As they navigate the treacherous terrain. They must confront their fears of claustrophobia, anxiety, and violence, leading to a heart-pounding escalation that will leave you breathless. The Descent remains one of the most innovative and gripping horror films to ever hit the big screen.
Night of the Living Dead (1968)
George A. Romero in 1968 inaugurates the ‘living dead’ trend with this film whose imagery has entered mass culture. Pennsylvania: Mysterious radiation emitted by a space probe returning from Venus begins to resurrect the dead, turning them into bloodthirsty and highly infectious creatures.
