This past week was National Friendship Day. What screams “friendship” more than a good ol’ scary movie with some pals? If you’re anything like me, nearly any horror movie is at least entertaining to watch, if not a genuinely good film. It’s hard to find those in the horror genre. What’s even harder, though, is finding a movie that you can invite your friends, horror-lovers and non-horror-lovers alike, to watch. For example, you probably won’t invite just anyone to watch 2016’s literary period piece The Witch (or “The VVitch,” if you’re annoying). Robert Eggers’ slow-burn demonic drama isn’t a popcorn flick, and isn’t necessarily something you can chill out with friends and enjoy; nor is it a good background-noise film for parties. That’s not to say not just anyone can enjoy it, but you need to know what you’re in for, and I wouldn’t consider it “fun.” It’s not party friendly! But hopefully I can help, if you’re trying to plan a movie night that you can enjoy with friends of many tastes. Here are my top five.
Have I missed any horror films that you think would be a good fit to show to friends with many tastes? Comment some of your favorites and they might appear on future lists! Also let me know what lists you’d want to see next on the Nothing Peak blog.
