Pre-dated, and HEAVILY influenced both Halloween and Friday the 13th.

Body horror is just so great, It's original in its different horror aspects. As well as being intensified by the fact that it's a human body which your are familiar with. It almost doubles the scare factor since you see gnarly stuff that could also be goin down in your body.

Yeah, when done right and not with ****ty CGI, werewolf transformation scenes are pretty ****ing sick.

These days I would probably say The Shining because of how disconcerting it is and it feels like you're going insane. The Strangers was visceral and frightening on a rea world level. The Nightmare was also scary in that way. TBH though I think I'm desensitized to scary things in film.
?

really?

i watched that recently and while some of enactments were decent it was overall a pretty ****ing lame film despite the fact it was dealing with one of the scariest conditions in existence.

I feel like body horror gets you freaking out on a subconscious level.

Transformation scenes via The Fly and the Thing though.

I thought it was really gripping and creepy (especially the parts with the mom and the cat). Could have been that i wasn't used to the documentary approach to horror, but I really did love that movie.

i checked my imdb ratings just to see and the only horror movies ive rated 10/10 are

the shining
the fly
rosemary's baby
antichrist


you should try starry eyes or repulsion mondo, if you haven't seen either of them. they're two entirely different movies but i feel like you might enjoy them i dunno
