Last hurdle before I can finally breathe with relief because I don’t have to rack my brain to come up with recommendations for horror edition! Next week is Television Edition time and for that, I have my delicious picks all lined up, so this is in some ways, the finishing line for me (hopefully not towards a horrific end). Anyway, here are my 3 recommendations, one of which is my absolute fave and I just had to mention it!
This was such an obvious pick for me that I don’t really have any words for it. I’ve seen the first movie of this still ongoing franchise (over ten years, guys!) and I have seen the sequel, but first Saw wins. It’s like Paranormal Activity, the first one gets it so right, and the rest just try to milk on its success. But when you like these sorts of torture body horror type movies, you could binge watch a lot of Saw movies before going to see Jigsaw at the end of the month. So that’s something.
So, yes, I have watched The Evil Dead and I’m surprised that I have because I’m not much for horror, as this month has proven. Is it body horror though? Well, people wake up from the dead and look horrible – works for me! I saw it before watching Cabin in the Woods and I don’t regret my decision. It’s interesting to see how far horror has come, but how it still borrows from the classics.
I wanted to mention this movie this month no matter how flimsy the connection to the theme was because I love this movie! It’s one of those horror movies that has a good idea and it’s executed stunningly as well. But body horror? Well, catching an STD type of monster that wants to kill certainty feels body-horrific. It Follows also serves as a great sex-ed movie in my eyes: protection, or else, you might get killed by an invisible force. Stay safe, kids!
