I’m on a mission to watch more horror films, so here’s a space to talk about ones you’ve seen recently, would recommend, or would avoid more than Ransome’s underpants.
I watched this in Mauritius, and really enjoyed it. It’s a British film set in Sweden (though filmed in Romania) following a group of friends who go on a hiking trip to honour their late friend. Things then start to get weird.
It’s got a nice, honest, jokey (but not slapsticky) tone and interesting characters. It’s not overproduced like some lost-in-the-woods horrors, and at feels subtly eerie and ominous.
It stars Rafe Spall who I really like (he was in a few eps of Black Mirror, too) and is produced by Andy Serkis.
I have some theories about what happens and really want to talk about the ending but I won’t just yet
I also watched The Thing recently, which I thought was great. I’ve learned some interesting things about the production since too - like the fact that they used a fake hand to do the blood test scene for when the blood tests positive, but also used it for every part of the scene (i.e. every test) for continuity.
Today I picked up Unsane - has anyone seen that?
And how apt that Milan challenges me in the horror category on QuizUp as I’m writing this
