Get Out, Us & Hereditary are my favourite movies!!! It (2017) is decent too. Anyone got some recommendations for some good psychological horrors?

Hereditary was hands down one of the scariest movies I have ever seen, it’s fucking creepy!!

Can definitely agree with Cabin in the Woods being #1. Pretty interesting ending. Hereditary was completely disturbing. Saw really fucked with my head. Loved Get Out. I think Us and Midsommar should've made the list as well, or at least be honourable mentions.

JoRo yea I guess it’s all just up for interpretation. Which is very good I think

James Smillie i think it was charlie’s spirit who, all her life, had paimon as part of her spirit. it’s pretty confusing though and i don’t think anything has been confirmed

Jason Qualls really? how?? Us has nothing to do with race. how would you know it makes racism worse if you haven’t even seen the movies? im usually open to people’s opinions but c’mon dude

Get Out was a great movie with as m awesome ending, and while I liked US as a home invasion horror film I'm glad the ending isnt officially on this list cuz it was kind of ridiculous. Spoiler warning So copies of all these people escape from idk someplace to kill the other versions if themselves all leading to the master plan of... standing in a line holding hands. Like wtf? If someone figured out something I missed please tell me.

TheDoctorwho747 Red (the real Adelaide) was really young when she switched places with the real Red. The beginning scene of the movie shows that the last thing she saw before they switched was the “Hands across America” commercial. Since it’s about unity, she thought it would bring all the tethered together as “Americans”

“It follows” was terrible what
Cassandra Spoelhof
Make a part 2 and include “A Quiet Place”. I know you’ve talked about that movie several times on this channel, but that’s just because it’s such an astounding movie. You should also include “Before I Wake” which is Netflix original movie and it’s also really amazing. I highly recommend it.

Saw should be number one.

Can I say something about all the people saying that they hate the ending of The Mist? The main argument is that all the dad had to do was wait a couple more minutes. But... what the fuck did you expect them to do? The movie established that it's a very fubar situation. So, the thing they'd ever expect was for the military to suddenly come out on top.

The ending of Us isn’t that groundbreaking. I actually saw it coming, you just have to really pay attention to details during the movie.

I thought "It Follows" ended with the two of them living happily ever after agreeing to keep the std between them two of them faithfully not passing it around anymore.

Why is there so much love for a stupid film like "Drag me to hell" is beyond my understanding? It eventually comes in every list.

when I first watched number 8 I was shocked at the ending.. I just remember thinking WTF :( was definitely memorable.
I blame my strong sense of justice, but I really hate films where the bad guy wins. Hereditary, The Witch, Wrong Turn, Saw, Hostel, etc. I watch horror movies to see the villain get rocked in the end. The Thing is one of my favorite horror flicks. Some of the most groundbreaking special effects ever in that movie.

IMO "Us" is terrible and "Get Out" is nothing special either. I mostly watch horror and "Get Out" is a lot like "The Skeleton Key" but with a different and less entertaining method. Honestly, "Us" is quite lame and shouldn't even be on a top 100.
