Top 10 Horror Movies On Starz: Here Are The Top 10 Horror Movies!
Starz has a wide variety of classic and contemporary horror movies to choose from. Most of the choices on this list are based on what I consider to be the best of both worlds.
The Thing (1982)
The original version of John Carpenter’s The Thing is an essential viewing for fans of the horror genre. If you enjoy cheesy horror movies from the 1980s like “Evil Dead,” then you should definitely give this one a shot. There is no denying that this plot device has been used before. A research team that has become separated in Antarctica must fight off an alien parasite that is actively seeking them and transforming them into horrifying monster-like creatures. In general, it is exaggerated, but in the 1980s, this was a popular style, and this film, which is considered to be one of the best horror films to emerge from that decade, exemplifies it.
An intriguing tale about a man who discovers a set of spectacles that allow him to see the world in a new light and see things for what they truly are. That the majority of society’s elite are skull-faced extraterrestrials with an agenda to dominate the globe may be inferred from the fact that the subliminal messages that permeate both the mainstream media and the government are designed to keep the general populace in check. Nada uses this stunning finding as motivation in her struggle to liberate humans from the aliens’ mental manipulation. Watching this movie is an excellent choice because it is not only clever but also hilarious and has a lot of meaning. There are numerous examples of reverences and meanings that may be found in the real world.
In this continuation of the film Silence of the Lambs, Anthony Hopkins reprises his role as the serial killer Hannibal Lecter. This time around, Hannibal is on the run and has made it into the FBI’s list of the top 10 most wanted criminals. Additionally, Agent Clarice has returned and is attempting to track him down. The plot is made a little more interesting by the fact that one of Hannibal’s previous victims is also out for revenge, which creates a fantastic cat-and-mouse game with multiple levels of complexity. It is a shame that everyone is comparing it to Silence of the Lambs because it was never going to be as good as that movie, but it is still a great movie that any director would be proud of making. In general, the film is enjoyable; the only thing that brings it down is that people are comparing it to that movie. If you like The Silence of the Lambs and are interested in continuing the story, then you should watch this film; you won’t be let down.
The Exorcism of Emily Rose
When a younger girl by the name of Emily Rose passes away, everyone points the finger at the exorcism that had been conducted on her by Father Moore in the moments leading up to her passing. The priest has been detained on suspicion of having committed murder. Moore is going to be defended by attorney Erin Bruner when the trial gets underway, but it is not going to be an easy battle because no one wants to think what Father Moore has to say is accurate. This is a courtroom drama movie more than anything else, and the fact that it bounces from one setting to another, from an exorcism to a courtroom, is one of the things that, to me, makes it a little deceiving. The tone of the film is far more serious and dramatic than that of typical horror films.
The Fourth Kind
Based on actual events, the plot revolves around the premise that since the 1960s, a disproportionately large number of people living in and around Nome, Alaska have mysteriously vanished, and suggests that extraterrestrial abductions may be to blame for this phenomenon. I remember going to see this movie in the theatre with my brother and his friends, and there was a heated argument about whether the events of this movie are real or not. Personally, I don’t think it matters whether the events of this movie are real or not because it’s a creepy movie and it leaves a lot of mystery. I would rather not find out whether or not this is true because, while I enjoy the idea that we are not alone, I do not want to entertain the possibility that I could be kidnapped in such a terrifying manner.
Another remake set inside the continuity of The Grudge. This Canadian adaptation of the vengeful spirit is, in compared to the other versions, a little bit of a letdown; but, if you are a lover of this particular subgenre of horror, then it is still worth a good scare. The biggest problem with this movie is that it has to live up to some really lofty expectations. It is possible that this film would have received a higher rating if it were not competing with so many others; to get the most out of it, you should watch it without thinking about the other films.
Army Of Darkness
If you watch parts of this movie and think you’re seeing a Monty Python skit, that’s okay; we won’t judge you. In reality, it is a continuation of the story begun in the first Evil Dead film. As a result of our lone survivor from the cabin being drawn into a mediaeval world that is in danger from the demons that the Book has set loose. This becomes a far more epic tale than The Evil Dead thanks to the abundance of blood and gore especially in comparison to the first picture. In the end, this movie serves as the inspiration for the new Evil Dead series that is currently streaming on Netflix and stars the same actor and character.
The Fly is a great film for anyone who enjoys classic horror or Jeff Goldblum. A straightforward story of a scientist who is able to build a teleportation device that actually functions, in which everything appears to be running well and does so in fact. When he attempts to teleport, he is met with an unanticipated obstacle in the form of a fly that enters the machine with him. At first, he is oblivious to the fact that anything is wrong; nonetheless, he gradually begins to develop superhuman abilities; however, along with it comes the aggressive behaviour of a fly as his DNA is slowly taken over by Fly DNA, transforming him into a monster.
Land Of The Dead
Despite its average rating, this was a movie that I found to be very enjoyable for me personally. The story takes place in the future, after the zombie apocalypse, when humanity has partially rebuilt itself in fortified cities and established protocols to deal with any contingency. On the other hand, the concept of zombies gaining intelligence through time (although in a subtle manner), to the point where they are able to overcome defences and throw humanity back into anarchy in a desperate attempt to survive, was not something that was envisaged. This film is a wonderful example of an action zombie movie since it features a lot of exciting action and builds zombie-killing tanks out of buses.
The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death
I thought Harry Potter gave possibly his best performance in the first of these films, which I really enjoyed (though he did set the bar low in my opinion). 40 years after the first reported haunting at Eel Marsh House, a group of children who had been evacuated from London during World War II arrive there, reawakening the house’s most sinister resident. In no way can it compare to the quality of the previous movie, yet it is nonetheless eerie and sinister. If you liked the first one and are looking for more of the same scares, then you will probably appreciate this one as well.
