10 Cloverfield lane (2016) follows Michelle after she awakens from a car accident and finds herself chained to a pipe in the wall. She soon learns that she was brought to the ‘basement” by the rather intimidating Howard. The basement is actually a doomsday bunker with three occupants: black belt in conspiracy theory, Howard: his former repairman, Emmett: and Michelle, whom Howard saved from her smashed car. With an utterly confusing opening and closing critics initially despised the film, but then praised it for its tension building soundtrack; it is nominated for a Hollywood Music in Media Award. 10 Cloverfield lane un-praised for its less than climatic ending, is praised for its soundtrack and tension building camera shots that create the white-knuckle psychological thriller.
The Exorcist Everyone has different views when it comes to life after death, including the beliefs in ghosts and spirits. In the movie The Exorcist, the vivid scenes and twisted storylines made this movie one of the scariest movies of the seventies. The movie showcases 12 year old Regan’s life once she becomes possessed by the devil himself, and the struggles her mother went through to get her some help. The movie shows many reoccurring motifs throughout the movie, as well as some hidden metaphors that suggests a deeper meaning to the plot. What I have observed from the film is that in a way, once Regan is possessed she is like a mirror, she shows the fears of the people surrounding her.
This is very uncommon in the present day, but in Rod Serling’s “The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street”, this was their reality. In the 1960’s version, it was about a group of neighbors constantly being scapegoated for being part of an “alien invasion” into their neighborhood due to a recent power outage. In the 2003 version the same thing happened except they were being blamed for being a terrorist. Even though both films were made in completely different time periods they had the same message. “Fear of the unknown can cause people to turn on each other” To begin with, the neighbors in the 1960’s version of “The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street” stared off as a beautiful normal day, but within only a few hours, the whole street went to chaos, fear, and distrust.

At its finest, horror is seductive. Some of the best works of horror are those which test the limitations of degrees of wrongness and still manage to keep audiences enticed.

Only this celebration involves a ritual where the thirty thousand citizens of each city are bound together to create two giant creatures. This story captures the essence of horror by both repulsing its readers and leaving their minds unsettled.
