It seemed like yesterday we were getting ready for 2019 Halloween but here we are again. Thursday Movie Picks focuses on horror in October and first up are horror movie houses. Now this seems to me more like a deco recommendation than a movie one. I love that though! So I dug deep and tried to think of horror movie houses that are creepy as hell. Putting aside the movies almost completely. So here are three horror movie houses that I would love to stay away from!
3. THAT HOUSE WITH AN ALIEN SPIDER-CLOWN THAT FEEDS ON KIDS IN THE BASEMENT aka IT: CHAPTER ONE (2017)
In past years I think I’ve recommended It: Chapter Two like twice now so it was about time I’d bring out the first movie. Though I guess the title there focuses on the overall duology and oh, spoilers. Anyway this house our gang of kids enter is not a nice one. I’d stay away. It’s designed to separate you and it has doors that don’t lead to happy places. Not to mention the well in the basement that takes to the alien-spider thing that feeds on kids. I mean, can you imagine being a realtor and selling a house in that house’s neighbourhood, geez.
2. WHEN DID AN ISOLATED CABIN IN THE MIDDLE OF THE WOODS NEVER NOT KILL ANYONE, HUH? aka THE CABIN IN THE WOODS (2011)
Honestly, it’s so easy to recommend this because the title says it all. If you have a freaking cabin in the woods you run the other way. Don’t go in. Ignore it! Don’t plan to stay in a cabin that’s located in the woods. It always make me wonder how these characters in these movies are not aware. Do horror movies not exist in these horror movie worlds? If they did people would ignore creepy cabins and going down to the pitch black basement. Anyway, that being said… the cabin is still kinda cute. I’d go there. Probably die first though and I’ll be the one nobody notices is gone because I’m that unpopular.
1. OH WELL THAT TREE HOUSE LOOKS CUTE BUT OH WAIT… NEVER MIND, I’VE LOST MY HEAD aka HEREDITARY (2018)
Tree houses count here because I really want to include this one here. Hereditary is without a doubt one of my favourite horror movies but the actual house is not that bad. Yes, there are bad stuff that happen there but the tree house, guys, it’s the goldmine! If all tree houses were like that no kid will ever play in it. Besides, the juxtaposition of taking something that usually means joy and adventure to kids, and turn it into a horror house. Brilliant. Plus as you can see all my picks are rather greenish which makes the gifs similar and ticks off the theme within a theme thing. Sort of.
