The horror genre has been a staple of the film industry for decades, terrifying audiences with stories of supernatural beings, psychological horrors, and gruesome violence. Some films have become timeless classics, leaving a lasting impact on the genre and cementing their place in cinema history. The Thing (1982), The Exorcist (1973), and Midsommar (2019) are three such films that have captivated audiences and critics alike with their unique blend of terror, suspense, and artistry. In this exploration, we delve into the worlds created by these masterpieces, analyzing their themes, characters, and cinematography to understand why they continue to haunt us. So, here is the list of the best 3 horrifying movies.
The Thing (1982)
Director: John Carpenter
The master of terror does not need to go into space. A base in Antarctica is enough to create a story about an extraterrestrial creature that awakens with dire consequences. Right up there with Alien: The Eighth Passenger. As a curiosity, it is a remake of the estimable 1951 version.
Scariest moment: The final freezing scene.
The Exorcist (1973)
Director: William Friedkin
A great reference to modern Western horror. A classic full of legendary scenes about the hellish possession of a girl that is still unbeatably creepy.
Scariest moment: The 121 minutes do not leave you alone. But the scene in which the girl goes down the stairs on her back, like a crab, continues to chill the blood no matter how many times you have seen it.
Directed by: Ari Aster
With his second film, Ari Aster brought the long-suffering protagonist played by Florence Pugh to sunny, summery Sweden. The problem, of course, is when she finds herself, along with her companions, in a strange society filled with murderous and violent beliefs.
Scariest moment: Curiously, the time in which the protagonist has sex with the young redhead who is chasing him. Of course, everything is part of a ceremony and he is surrounded by naked old women invoking satan. Oh, and also the subliminal scenes that you may not have dared to see.
