What's the context to this? Is that an alien, or like a demon?

I remember seeing this gif before and it was extremely uncomfortable to watch. Just wtf, so creepy.

yeah the Mulholland Drive jumpscare is one of the best ever and the gif really doesn't do it justice. The scene builds to that scare so well.

My advice, watch Rec and Rec 2

Avoid any sequels past that, it just gets...weird after that

I've read mixed things about this movie, but now I'm interested. Movies that hinge on dread rather than jump scares are my jam

It's definitely one of the most frightening films I've seen recently, and is absolutely more about atmosphere than scares. Made me feel really uncomfortable for most of the run time.

The first one is good but it may seem a bit corny nowadays because of all the parody films of it. There are sequels and one released this year (rings) but I've never seen any of those.

edit: And The Leopard Man is actually nothing like Cat People. Cat People's thematic interest in sexuality/sexual repression, immigrants, and cultural assimilation is nowhere to be found in The Leopard Man, which is a film more straightforward in its content(if ahead of its time) but wildly different in structure.

Right on. My first thought was the cemetery scene but it just couldn't be done in gif form, so much of it being the audio and Consuelo's dialogue with the man on the other side of the wall.

I'll take Lewton and company's moody spookiness over a ton of the gore/shock stuff put forward in this thread.

Try prince of darkness as well. Its not for everyone but the soundtrack and atmosphere is one of the most oppressing things ive experienced.

All of Val Lewton's RKO horror films are worth a look I say.

  • Cat People - A classic.
  • I Walked With A Zombie - Another classic.
  • The Leopard Man - A lesser film than the previous two in a lot of ways but is pretty ambitious and it has an odd, meandering structure that sets it apart.
  • The Seventh Victim - A moody and death obsessed horror-noir something or other, his very best.
  • The Ghost Ship - His worst, largely caused by the casting of Richard Dix as the villain. So, so miscast.
  • The Curse of The Cat People - Not really a horror story but a wonderful film, usually considered one of his best.
  • The Body Snatcher, Isle of the Dead, and Bedlam - His three films with Boris Karloff, all strong(particularly on the acting front, one can easily forget just how great an actor Karloff really was) but they pull more and more away from horror(and Lewton's films were already more horror adjacent than straight horror stories) into drama territory.

It is probably the best Lovecraftian film from a 'based on Lovecraft and tries to feel like Lovecraft' perspective(although it is actually more Shadow Over Innsmouth than the story of its title. As long as you can handle the low budget-ness of it, it is pretty solid.

It starts off really stupid, like the kinda "stupid" you'd see in a 2000s horror movie where you get bunch of unlikable people partying together and acting annoying. I have a low tolerance for that shit, and that shit was a-plenty during the 00s, but as soon as they get to the island and start investigating the mystery, I thought it was an alright flick. It's actually a loose adaptation of The Shadow Over Innsmouth.

We need a movie with high production values which does for movies what Bloodborne did for video games as far as Lovecraft adaptations go.
