Join us as we delve into the heart-pounding experiences of “Saw,” “A Nightmare on Elm Street,” and “Evil Dead 2,” where the boundaries of reality and nightmares blur, and terror takes center stage. Here is the list of the Top 3 Exceptional Horror Movies.
Leigh Whannell and James Wan made the original Saw on a shoestring budget. It tells a twisted but constantly intriguing tale of two men waking up in a bathroom with a corpse between them. The film might have reignited the so-called torture genre with its (mostly) truly disgusting sequels. However, the original Saw is nowhere near as gross-gusting as you think it is and happens to be a brilliant horror. Yes, the title suggests that a depraved killer wants someone to take their leg off instead of using a key to unlock a cuff. Nevertheless, Saw is actually remarkably restrained. The ideas at work here are significantly more terrifying in your own mind than what you see on screen.
A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)
As the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise evolved over the years. Freddy Krueger fell firmly into killer clown territory, much like a certain possessed doll. Looking back at Wes Craven’s original movie, we discover that Freddy isn’t a figure to be trifled with. As he sprays your organs all over the walls, leading to death with laughter. An angry mob of parents incinerated him, a serial child killer, resulting in his burns. Now, he lives eternally through their fear and guilt, but our selective memories often make us forget this fact. When he dons his favorite murder glove, Freddy becomes the ultimate boogeyman. The movie is targeting a whole new generation of Springwood spawn while they slumber.
Evil Dead 2 (1987)
Bruce Campbell himself has thankfully answered the many Evil Dead 2 questions. It considers it a ‘requel’ rather than a mere remake or sequel. In Sam Raimi’s cabin-based comedy horror, the story revolves exclusively around Campbell’s Ash and his girlfriend Linda. They try to survive after playing a reading of the Necronomicon aloud. Notably, the original Evil Dead took a group of twenty-somethings to a holiday house from hell. However, in this sequel, the focus shifts solely to Ash’s harrowing experience. Additionally, I must warn you that after the ominous reading, someone gets beheaded with a garden tool. So, whether it’s a remake, sequel, or something else, Evil Dead 2 keeps the audience engaged with its unique ‘requel’ approach.
