It's October so that means it's officially Halloween month over at Wandering Through The Shelves. As you can probably tell, I love Halloween. But Wanderer's first theme is one that I'm actually not crazy about: home invasions. They just make me a bit too uncomfortable for my viewing pleasure. Luckily, there have been a few over the past few years that I've really enjoyed.
This straight to Netflix horror film changes the home invasion mold slightly by having our protagonist be deaf, and by having our intruder take off his mask and quite literally be like "Oops you saw me, now I have to kill you." It's very twisted and well played.
2) Don't Breathe
A few misfits make the biggest mistake of their lives when they break into a blind man's house. This film gets serious props for introducing a twist late in the game that shouldn't have worked but just made everything even more fucked up.
3) Them (Ils)
In all fairness, I haven't seen this movie in years. Them was loosely remade as The Strangers in the U.S but the thing that made this the most disturbing is when they revealed who the killers and their motives really were. I'd like to watch this again.
