At this point, I feel like I've seen almost every supernatural horror film out there (wife and I love 'em - can't get enough). It's gotten to the point that we've pretty much exhausted every high budget/pop ones (e.g., Conjuring films universe; Happy Death Day; Pet Sematary), Horror Comedies (Slither; Tuck and Dale v Evil, Evil Dead movies, etc.) and are starting to scrape the very bottom of the Amazon Prime horror barrel (I'm talking grad school level of acting, directing and production value horror films). We've seen pretty much every A24 film (even though we tend to hate them) out of a sense of duty and somnambulism. 

 

So, someone surprise me (or help other folks out who are in a similar boat). Is there some super-amazeballs supernatural horror film out there you just LOVE and think other folks haven't seen yet?

having a hard time deciding what to recommend seeing that you ask for supernatural but then you mention happy death day and horror comedies so, here's a few and then you can check the rest of the list on the following link...

I know at one point I watched Beyond the Black Rainbow, I just don't remember what it was about since the pacing was quite slow, like The Void, but with a lot less violence.

 

What We Do In The Shadows is new, though, isn't it?

Seen nearly all the ones in TIMJ's list, still need to see Resolution. Wouldn't call Hourglass Sanitorium a horror movie either.

 

In the same boat as Tweeter. I will say one of the newer cheapo horrors I have a soft spot for is As Above So Below. Some nice moments in that one.

At this point, I feel like I've seen almost every supernatural horror film out there (wife and I love 'em - can't get enough). It's gotten to the point that we've pretty much exhausted every high budget/pop ones (e.g., Conjuring films universe; Happy Death Day; Pet Sematary), Horror Comedies (Slither; Tuck and Dale v Evil, Evil Dead movies, etc.) and are starting to scrape the very bottom of the Amazon Prime horror barrel (I'm talking grad school level of acting, directing and production value horror films). We've seen pretty much every A24 film (even though we tend to hate them) out of a sense of duty and somnambulism. 

 

So, someone surprise me (or help other folks out who are in a similar boat). Is there some super-amazeballs supernatural horror film out there you just LOVE and think other folks haven't seen yet? 

 

I am in the same boat. We've watched every single supernatural horror movie worth watching, so instead we've watched a bunch of body horror movies from the 80s.

Lots of love for Michael Jackson’s post but they ain’t supernatural mate.

I watch so many horror film but when I see questions like this my mind goes blank, I’ll come back to this but off the top of my head:

Lake Mungo
Shutter
The Borderlands
Pulse
Noroi: The Curse

Will add a couple of British TV classics to the list:

The Woman in Black - 1989
A Warning to the Curious - 1972
The Signalman - 1976

Cheers will take a look, these look interesting. . .

Yeah, same feelings about As Above. Although I'll probably lower my karma points for saying this, Grave Encounters + Grave Encounters 2 are probably my/our fave found footage horror movies ever (verging on top horror).

Yeah, we've been on a "lab experiments gone wrong" kick a bit. Although it got a bad rap, thought the Lazarus Effect was a nice lab experiment/supernatural horror pop gem. Tend to cycle through other horror genres in hopes that good supernatural films will replenish themselves in our absence.

Ta! some of these have been on the "give it a try" list for a bit. 

 

Oh, right, cheers to MJ - have seen pretty all of those (many are indeed non-supernatural but still a pretty top list)

Check out Cinemassacre's Monster Madness reviews, then when one intrigues you, watch it. He reviews mostly older stuff from 20s-80s but there are some more recent.

The Ritual

 

Also As Above and Borderlands are also great recommendations.

It's weird - I've been aware of them for such a long time but never got around to even watching Suspiria (og one I mean - which I know is like some sort of cardinal sin). At the moment, somewhat restricted b/c I can pretty much tell my wife would generally hate them . . . even though I would probably quite like them. . .

 

EDIT: All this talk of italian films makes me think of this which I first encountered on WATMM like forever ago. . . wasn't this someone's avatar at some point?
