If we mixed Eli Roth’s ‘Hostel’ with ‘The Hills Have Eyes’ and took it to Southeast Asia, we would have this gem. One of the best-known gore filmography (very prolific) in the country. If you like chainsaws, beheadings, and basins of blood, you’ll love ‘Macabre’. Also, Shareefa Daanish, who plays the matriarch of the villain family, is truly terrifying. The Mo Brothers, known for their mythical ‘May the Devil Take You’, both wrote and directed this film, and it comes as no surprise that it possesses a bloody nature. However, what follows is something entirely unexpected. Her films, both as a duo and separately, are infamous and outrageously funny.
If you already have ‘Ringu’ in your hand, try ‘Noroi’, a gem of found footage. The film begins by introducing us to paranormal investigator Masafumi Kobayashi. Who disappeared during the process of making a documentary titled, wow, ‘The Curse’. Afterward, the documentary will start playing as we discover the secrets he left behind. The discovery of an ancient ritual that summons a demon named Kagutaba will bring seemingly unrelated mysteries together. What makes ‘The Curse’ truly terrifying is its remarkable realism, delivering a good balance of scare and goofiness that had never been seen before in Japan. Will it hold up over time?
Soul (2019) – Roh
Emir Ezwan’s debut chronicles the supernatural danger that threatens a Malaysian family with eerie and poetic simplicity. Because if terror often leans towards spectacle and bloodthirsty plumbing, the most disturbing exercises of the genre dodge them to bet, instead, on a more silent and naked threat. That is certainly the case with ‘Roh’/’Soul’, which was Malaysia’s nominee for the Oscar for Best International Film. And would go on to win Cuarón’s ‘Roma’. When a mud-covered girl suddenly appears near a shack in the middle of the Malaysian jungle, things take a sinister turn for the family who lives there. Not that the mother, poor and in denial over her father’s death, did particularly well before the arrival of the missing girl, though. However, seeing her slit her throat in the first fifteen minutes of the film is simply a spectacle.
