Bored of the same old love stories and romantic movies? Are you a suspense/horror loving person? Then you’ve come to the right place. Do not judge them by the year they were made in. Some of the finest movies were indeed made in the 80s.
So here’s a list of lesser-known Thriller, Suspense and Horror movies that one should definitely check out if they love the genre
Elliot Goldner’s ‘The Borderlands’ revolves around a team of investigators looking into strange occurrences at a remote town church, it’s key strengths lie in charismatic characters, compelling drama and an impressive devotion to authenticity which leads to some genuinely unnerving moments of found-footage terror. This is a low-budget movie which is surprisingly great and has gone underrated for so many years.
It’s the most precise, confident and assured directorial debut I have ever seen, expertly observing a man, woman, and their child over three seemingly normal years of their life. This movie has no psycho killers and no major bloodshed but the horror is very subtle and can give you goosebumps when you’re least expecting it.
Its first half is filled by gorgeous painterly locations and picturesque vistas that give way to Gothic castles and nightmarish rivers of rats which ooze with a rich, dark atmosphere. It really is the feel of Herzog’s magnum opus that makes it so memorable. With its deft pacing, an engrossing ocean of atmosphere and a delightful ending… perhaps we should all be paying a little more attention to Herzog’s take on Nosferatu.
The movie follows David (Luke Wilson) and Amy (Kate Beckinsale) Fox, an unhappy, soon to be divorced couple who breaks down in the middle of nowhere and ends up forced to spend the night in a grungy little roadside motel miles from any sign of civilization. There’s no television reception, but there is a VCR and an unlabeled VHS tape. The tape seems to be a low budget horror movie filmed right in their room. Suddenly David realizes he’s not watching a movie, he’s watching people actually being killed.
Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy (Catherine Keener) and Dean (Bradley Whitford). At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined.
When Rebecca (Teresa Palmer) left home, she thought she left her childhood fears behind. Growing up, she was never really sure of what was and wasn’t real when the lights went out and now her little brother, Martin (Gabriel Bateman), is experiencing the same unexplained and terrifying events that had once tested her sanity and threatened her safety. A frightening entity with a mysterious attachment to their mother, Sophie (Maria Bello), has reemerged. But this time, as Rebecca gets closer to unlocking the truth, there is no denying that all their lives are in danger…once the lights go out.
