October always brings wonderful horror recommendations from my fellow bloggers but today I wanted to talk about a few that don't get a lot of mentions - from myself included. I always have a few that I champion but the ones below I don't believe I've mentioned in a while. I'll also link to my old reviews of each film. Apologies for how terrible my writing used to be. (Not that it's good now, but it was once worse)
1) Red White & Blue
No, not the prestigious Three Colors trilogy. Calling this film unsettling is an understatement. It shows the ugly side of human nature by showing us three individuals we want to sympathize with at first until they give us every reason not to. Full review.
2) Home Movie
Found footage films aren't as much as a thing as they were a few years ago but one that consistently sticks in my mind as one of the better ones is Home Movie. It's not perfect, but it's different. It's about a couple whose 10 year old twins start acting very sinister. Full review.
3) Starry Eyes
If body horror is what you're into, Starry Eyes is here for you. An aspiring actress finds her auditions getting weirder, and weirder, but she continues to go because she wants to live her dream. When The Neon Demon came out, I saw a bit of an up kick in people talking about this film as they are slightly similar, but for me this is the better of the two. Full review.
I couldn't make this list without bringing in some camp. A man puts on a clown costume for his son's birthday that eventually starts possessing him. At one point, the killer clown gets into a ball pit at a Chuck E Cheez and starts going after children. It's wild. Full review.
This might be a bit of a niche, but I'm terrified of bears, y'all. The Edge scared the crap out of me as a child. This film is frightening for a couple of reasons. Bears, camping, and stupid boyfriends. Full review.
