One of most daring English-language films out there. Dead Girl still stands its ground to this day as one of the most surreal and disturbing horror experiences.

One to test the boundaries of sanity.

13: THE GIRL NEXT DOOR

Halloween Horror movies The Girl Next Door

I was late in seeing The Girl Next Door. Thanks to one of the awesome Facebook groups that I am part of called HADC, I was able to hunt it down and check it out.

This one is an uncomfortable watch and goes for the jugular.  Like most of the films on this list, The Girl Next Door is not for the faint of heart.

 

OFFICIAL PLOT (IMDb)

Based on the Jack Ketchum novel of the same name, The Girl Next Door follows the unspeakable torture and abuses committed on a teenage girl in the care of her aunt…and the boys who witness and fail to report the crime.

14: GROTESQUE

Halloween horror movies GROTESQUE

No one can do crazy quite like Japan. Grotesque is as hardcore as they come. It purposely has no storyline and is just an hour and half of two people getting brutally tortured with all sorts of blades, hammers, and nails.

This one got banned in England and Ireland by the BBFC. The reason it was officially banned was due to the “cruel and sadistic” content.

 

OFFICIAL PLOT (IMDb)

An unnamed doctor has always had everything he’s ever wanted, but that has only made him develop more extreme and depraved needs. He kidnaps a young couple in the prime of their life together and forces them into a game of torment that slowly extinguishes their hopes for survival.

Another nice trip down bleak-vile. Nothing Bad Can Happen is directorial debut from German filmmaker, Katrin Gebbe. The film is based on a shocking true story. it is told in such a way, it’s impossible not t carry around the final acts of the films in your head for months after the credits roll.

16: THE HORSEMAN

Halloween Horror movies THE HORSEMAN

A violent revenge movie with an outstanding lead performance from Peter Marshall. This low-budget shocker still holds up after all of these years.

Director/writer, Steven Kastrissios recently released his next feature film. For his next feature, Kastrissios travelled to Albania with a great idea to make Albania’s first ever horror movie, BLOODLANDS.

I have been lucky enough to already catch the movie. I can confirm that it is amazing. Not only that, but one of my Moviehooker quotes was used for the poster.

 

OFFICIAL PLOT (IMDb)

18: ICHI THE KILLER

Halloween Horror movies ICHI THE KILLER

I always describe this movie as “the movie that put my girlfriend off her dinner”. We have been together for a long time, so she has had to put up with really disturbing stuff. Out of all of those movies, this was the only one that made her put down her dinner and look at me as if there was something wrong with me.

 

OFFICIAL PLOT (IMDb)

As sadomasochistic yakuza enforcer Kakihara searches for his missing boss he comes across Ichi, a repressed and psychotic killer who may be able to inflict levels of pain that Kakihara has only dreamed of.
