10. The Eschatrilogy
Three stories that portray the different lives of people struggling from the virus that transforms the living into the undead; stories that are to be brought back to the grave. It lasts forever they say. But darkness has its end and the light shall conquer it all. How things would turn out between the opposition of these two forces is worth watching, as it carries the destiny of the people affected by the zombie menace.
9. Nightmare Fuel
Every October, people who plan to attend at scare concerts and shows dress up and give some fright that makes the Halloween spirit as strong as it could be. While there are performers that just put in some costumes for fun, there are others that go way beyond what’s real and child’s play. They even become pray to the forces of darkness just to provide a show that will give the fright of a lifetime.
ParaNorman is an offering that provides some hilarious relief apart from most paranormal movies that present a horrific, scary, and spine-tingling plot. Aside from being an animation that children will love, it also wallops some discrete yet imaginative shock that still gives a bit of a suspenseful feeling, despite being cartoon. Norman resembles a bit like Danny Phantom if you could notice, and that gives out a sign that makes you expect some spooks along the way.
One who knows Tim Burton movies very well would experience some kind of a trip back to memory lane, to the time when Jack Skellington was making sure that a nightmare can ruin Christmas. The elements are very same, but Frankenweenie has a plot that is Halloween in concept but not that scary. This show is actually great for kids of all ages, even those who are looking to have a spooky time this Halloween.
6. The Devil’s Carnival
Hell is coming to town and Lucifer has just made the perfect place to invite those souls who are wondering and looking for a path to find their lasting joy. The Devil’s Carnival shows the journey of three different individuals who have been led to such a place due to the sins they have done to compromise their lives. With Aesop’s Fables found at the beginning of the story, you will find out that three of the scenes centered in the characters are related to each part of one of Aesop’s fables.
5. The Black Dahlia Haunting
The history and mystery of The Black Dahlia begun in 1947, noted as one of the unsolved crimes that is yet to be unfolded. However, the spirit of Elizabeth Short had been playing games to the people who have tried to solve the crime and see that everything else becomes as shrouded as things have been for the longest time. This time around, the haunting sees its end thanks to a girl that would try to change everything.
4. Blood Cousins
Commemorating the death anniversary of a grandmother is sometimes viewed as a moment where relatives, cousins, and blood connections are gathered together in oneness. Blood Cousins show of the same event. Four cousins have met and took off a joyride to their grandmother. However, what seemed to be funny at first begins to shroud evil as their journey comes to a close. This is because of the secrets that are being unveiled as they stay longer in a place that is far away from their reach.
3. Dead Collections
The movie’s lines may give you some hint on what to expect with this indie movie, where it says “Don’t fear the dead, fear the living.” Dead Collections is about a woman that losses everything and is forced to live in her uncle’s house. However, as she stayed there, she sensed that the place was haunted, where she sees the wandering soul of a little girl. While this may be enough reason to be scared to death, there is another force in the residence that has the ability to hurt and kill… And she had to stay to find out the real nature of fear.
2. The Woodsman
The plot is surrounded with the finding of The Woodsman, a creature in the woods that may level up to the mysterious identity of the Yeti or the Loch Ness monster. A host who is creating a show about this being went missing, and a colleague went on the search to find the person. Documenting every moment of his search not only gave a perfect suspense horrific feeling, just like the first Blairwitch Project movie, but it also, unintentionally captured the existence of what seemed to be an urban legend for most unbelievers.
1. Murder University
You may be surprised why this movie became number 1 in the list of the top 10 horror movies of 2012. It may not be kind of movie that you might be expecting, such as being famous in the big screen or being viewed by an international audience. In fact, you may even think of it as an indie movie with poor looking visual effects. However, what makes it special is the plot that involves cult killings being brought to school grounds, and a survivor of the killing that comes back after 20 years; solving a crime that will end the killing spree in the university.
