    The Triangle I'm referring to is the 2009 one.

    The 2009 Triangle is available on Netflix. However, I have way too many discs in my queue, as is. Of the horror ones, I'm looking at...

    Witch Files, Slender Man, Fright Night (part 2), Polaroid, Ouija SÚance: The Final Game, It Lives Inside, Wilding, and Legend Of Halloween Jack. There's also Monsters at Large and a couple Goosebumps DVDs. Oh...and the latest Predator film.

    Still, with 32 discs (and a few streaming -- including Truth or Dare & Seven in Heaven) left to go...

    ...And I have Light as a Feather set for Hulu. As I said, I doubt I'll be adding the 2009 Triangle to my list, any time soon.

    I recently watched the Netflix version of Sabrina: the Teenage Witch. I think it was called "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina" (or something like that). I didn't care for their Riverdale series; however I really enjoyed this one!

    Tusk - A horror movie by Kevin Smith? Really? Yup. Plays heavily on horrifying than scary/creepy. Went in blind other than the quick blurb on netflix and had no real idea of what to expect and felt it worked best that way.

    The Open House - Bit of a slow build up, but leaves you sufficiently horrified by the time its done. Does a really good job of leaving you guessing as to what's going on till right at the end and once the full reveal happens its all oh geeze *shudder*.

    If you want more detail ask, but both of these worked very well going in blind for me.
    I have two questions for both, and, based on the 'going in blind is good', I please just give a simple Yes or No.

    Is the threat/scare/whatever supernatural (as opposed to mundane)?
    If supernatural, is it something a reasonably superstitious person would probably avoid?

    I really like horror movies, but I get creeped out easy and seem to only really avoid that if, if the situation in the movie were real, I would be okay. I can handle not getting creeped out my mundane stuff, so if it's actually serial killers or a crazy dude, that doesn't creep me out. If it is supernatural, I'm cool with it if I would be okay in that situation. For example, I'd avoid Ouija boards or seances, so any movie based on that wouldn't creep me out. Likewise, a la Cabin in the Woods, if I found a basement full of obviously creepy artifacts, I'd leave it alone and get out of there.

    Or, I guess, if the threat is pretty easy to defeat if you accept it as real and act logically in response. For example, It Follows.

    But especially movies where it's just a random ghost or demon someone happens upon and it starts to prey on them and their loved ones... those creep me out.

    ---

    On the 'going in blind', if you like Tarantino, From Dusk Til Dawn.
    It doesn't seem any horror at first. In fact, just mentioning it in this thread kinda ruins the full impact, but can't see much else way to state it, and it's so old by now that a lot of folk know what it's about anyway. If you try to watch it on Netflix, avoid reading the description: it spoils it.

    Spoiler
    Show
    I saw it just thinking it was a normal crime-Tarantino movie. The shift to horror-flick halfway through was awesome!


    It is a bit more action & sorta-comedy than horror in its horror aspects, but technically counts.
    There's also a series on Netflix based on the movie, but I haven't watched it enough to comment.

    The threats are not supernatural. One of the two does a good job of playing with your expectations on whether or not it is supernatural causes untill the end (or at least did so for me).

    I will add that I have been banned from choosing on movie nights with one group of friends thanks to Tusk. For a group that regularly plays VtM, they were rather squeamish.

    If any of you are fans of the old Blind Dead series they're getting a sequel after 43 years.

    Wow! Love the Blind Dead! Curious to see how that would translate to modern film. The originals are slow as all get out, but if you can get into it, that'd much of the appeal.

    I am partial to Angel Heart, the 1987 movie by alan Parker, starring Mickey Rourke and Robert De Niro.

    If you never had a chance to see it, I'd say it is worth it.

    I'm about to watch the Nun. I've seen the Annabelle (& Conjuring) movies. They're OK. I've seen better. I just thought I'd mention this...in case anyone wanted to discuss these movies.

    Couple of new recommendations more on the comedic side of horror:

    Life After Beth - A zombie romantic comedy, lotsa deadpan snarking, put me in the mind of Shaun of the Dead overall. Lot of silly fun.

    They're Watching - A house hunter show's crew goes back to do a followup episode on a couple and the house they bought. Things get weird. Put me in mind of Grave Encounters a bit, but with an overall more lighthearted tone.

    Sorta reccomend:
    Seven in Heaven - The horror part of this one was alright, being trapped in alternate bad dimensions after passing through a "portal", but the framing device and overarching plot was pretty dumb. If teen party gone wrong is your thing, you might like this more than I did, but if not, go watch Cloverfield Paradox, Event Horizon or the V/H/S series for better cosmic horror stories.

    Does anyone know if the movie version for Spirit Camera (I can't think of the original game title) was ever made? I saw what could have been either a trailer (or just a fake trailer) for it. I was hoping that the trailer was for an ACTUAL movie. I don't care if it was a "student film" version or full production. I'm just curious.

    Fatal Frame, which is my favorite horror game series (Zero in Japan, and Project Zero in Europe). A film came out in Japan, and it was a pretty standard ghost story. Not bad, but not exceptional, and not very Fatal Frame. They included the Camera Obscura, but sort of tacked on with a side character. I don't think it really affected the plot much. I was disappointed.

    I would LOVE to see an adaptation of the games. The first three as a trilogy would be amazing!

    If this is the film you mean, it doesn't look related to the games
    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5651458/
    The film that came out in Japan was this one:
    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3684484/

    But even that was a sort of loose connection.

    My favorite category to watch horror & suspense. Because I like to feel the excitement because my work is too sensitive when I free for my work I want to see some exciting things. I am a Senior Web Developer & Web Designer Dubai. I work with creative agencies in UAE to manage and assist in their projects.

    I think, as others have said, that Hellraiser fits in well with the list in the topic post
