I gotta agree with @newbloodmoon

I was banished from Buffy viewings because I was laughing all the way through the episodes, and I always spoils it all by revealing the plot spot on every time, very predictable ... pretty much the reason I was banished from the X Files viewing parties ...   

:lol:

This doesn't really fit paranormal. It's more a darkly comic, visceral, coming of age, disturbing descent into madness... if you can envisage that! :lol:

Based on some of the trailers here though, I'd say some horror fans will enjoy it...

AnnaLynne McCord is brilliant in it.

It's probably one of the most unbelievable transformations since Charlize Theron in Monster :lol:

Three Norwegian horror creature/myth movies that are pretty good.

Trollhunter is made in a sort of documentary-style. Even though it is partly humorous, it is also suspenseful, and have some pretty good creature-effects.

Troll Hunter (2012)

 

The scene in the movie (at 0:12 in the trailer clip here) he runs up at the camera and screams; TROOOLL!!!!!...RUUUN FOOOR FUX SAKE!!! :lol: Priceless...

 

 

This is also an interesting, creature/Norse-myth, flick that I liked.

Ragnarok (2014)

 

 

This one is a fairly good, creature/Norse-myth flick, and have some interesting suspenseful parts in it.

Thale (2012)

I need some help on this one. It was a movie I only caught once (and only like the last 40 minutes) on HBO in 2016. It was a part found footage film but not as horrible as most of the others. The premise was a scientific team evaluating a female subject who was thought to be possessed. Can't recall any actors who were in it. Anyone know what it was called? I would like to get another full viewing of it. Thanks!

Korean film A Tale of Two Sisters tells the disturbing story of a dysfunctional family. It's one of my favourites. I've not seen the American remake The Uninvited, but based on the reviews I've read, it doesn't appear to be as good as the original.

Am bumping this one as I think it’s a good thread and maybe there are some new recommendations.

Hereditary... gulp!

I have to say that was one of the most horrifying movies I've ever seen, and I'm pretty jaded.

This one is one of a very small handful that scared me. I remember the day after I watched it, I had to use the bathroom in the middle of the night, and stood there thinking I should look over my shoulder. 

Then I laughed.

Are there any good films that aren't filled with over the top gore and violence though? It's just not my thing and I find it a cop-out, sort of like jump scares, simply too easy.

I think all those listed so far are too dark for me.  I like movies like Vibes with Cyndi Lauper and Jeff Goldblum.

The Little Stranger (2018) is a (kind of) ghost story set in a crumbling manor house in post war Britain. Definitely not a horror movie, more a (slightly ambiguous) paranormal drama.
