13 Cheesy Horror Movies to Scare You With Laughter
It’s now 2013, and we’re probably going to see Paranormal Activity 10 by the time the decade is over. This is an example of a movie whose horror has been utterly destroyed by its awful sequels. If you can still get scared after all that elaborate mythology and increasingly silly methods of catching the demon, you should feel just a little bit bad about yourself. 7. Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark (1973) S There are two different parts of Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark. There’s the part that has insane goblin voices that laugh in the darkness, slowly manipulate the heroine until her own friends leave her helpless, and then drag her off to an undetermined fate. And then there’s the third act with the little guys who look like someone put an apple-face doll in a suit. Once you see the ending, you’ll feel like a dork (and not in a good way) for covering your eyes during the first half. 6. Citadel (2012) S Citadel is a well-crafted film that keeps you guessing. A cheerful young man witnesses an attack on his pregnant wife by hoodies. He develops crippling agoraphobia. He’s also reduced to poverty. Between these two factors, the world becomes a hellscape, with zombielike civil servants who regard his terror with no compassion, black-outs and bus stoppages that leave him vulnerable, and random frightening events that could be attacks or could be bad luck with no safety net.

The 2005 movie is so bad, we couldn’t possibly pick one scene. Video: YouTube, GrackleBoxStudios 6. Nightmare on Elm Street We all have to start somewhere in our careers, and for Johnny Depp, it was in 1984, when he lost a battle with a bed. The old and clunky technology just makes this scene better/worse. Video: YouTube, TzTokFlame 7. Attack of the Killer Tomatoes The special effects in 1978 were just incredible. We’re at a loss for words over the giant, evil tomato in this film. Video: YouTube, lemonysnicket1234567 8. Santa’s Slay Skip to 1:50 if you don’t find enjoyment in obnoxiously rich people talking about their “humble” Christmas. Video: YouTube, itburnswhenithink 9. The Spookies This 1986 film features a group of travelers who (surprise) took a wrong turn.
RZA on His New Movies and Recording With Paul Banks
To between these two extremes I’ve found there’s a similar wavelength. Have you written your next movie? I wrote two movies this year. One is social. It’s called One Spoon of Chocolate. The tagline is “One spoon of chocolate can change a whole glass of milk.” It’s a racism struggle. It’s a struggle between two guys and they realize their struggle is minute compared to the real struggle. That one I don’t think I’ll make as soon as the one I’ve just finished, which is called Sting of the Scorpion. It’s basically another revisit of The Man With the Iron Fists saga. It’s very different than the first one. The cool thing about writing film and working with Eli Roth and Quentin Tarantino is that Quentin is our teacher and Eli is my classmate, but they’ve elevated me. I told Quentin my new story and he loved it. Will you work with Quentin again on this new film? For this one I dont think I’ll use him. I’ll call him for a different one.
Looking back, heres 10 of the previously-released movies worth seeing in 3D. Avatar (2009) James Camerons epic fantasy introduced many moviegoers to 3D for the first time, and the director used the format to immerse viewers in the world of Pandora. It went on to become the highest-grossing film of all time with nearly $2.8 billion at the worldwide box office. Need we say more? Coraline(2009) Henry Selicks Coraline from LAIKA was the first feature length 3D stop motion film. The story, which incorporated an alternative universe, used a nearly flat image forCoralines real world, to create the feeling that she feels constricted by her life; and lots of depth as she entered the more exciting alternate world. Selick likened his use of 3D to the way in which color was used inThe Wizard of Oz. Dial M for Murder(1954) While it’s not widely known as a 3D film, Alfred Hitchocks classic was filmed with depth in mind. The most often-cited shot was the one during which Grace Kelly extends her hand into the audience as she reaches for a pair of scissors as she is being attacked. But it was also the way that the director used space to tell the storytaken from a stage play that occurs mostly in a one-bedroom apartmentthat adds to the suspense. How to Train Your Dragon(2010) DreamWorks Animation maintains a high standard for 3D and multiple DWA titles would be appropriate for a list such as this. But its Oscar-nominated How To Train Your Dragon is still considered to be the studios masterpiece in 3D circles. Among the favorite scenes is the one during which Hiccup and Toothless meet for the first time. Depth is used to increase feelings of vulnerability, fear, and conflicted emotions.
