What's the MOST REALISTIC horror film? - Page 3

The Omen.
With Gregory Peck.

Last House on the Left was pretty realistic and disturbing. But if you're going to call that a horror movie, then I'd include something like The Proposition which has equally bad people who do equally bad things. It's generally considered to be a Western, but is a fucking great movie which contains some pretty disturbing things that you don't get out of your head once you've seen them...not cartoonish violence...realistic violence. Highly recommended.

And I'll preemptively add Blood Meridian to this list even though it hasn't been made into a movie yet and might not ever be. That shit is scary.

It almost pains me that they will make it into a movie. It's just so fucking good, I know they won't be able to match it. And they'll likely cut out a lot of the nasty parts.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: No actor alive could possibly play Judge Holden.

Just to play devil's advocate here (because I'm pretty close to flat-out agreeing with you but not quite), I think that it would be pretty difficult to have imagined someone properly playing Hannibal Lecter or Anton Chighur properly. And yet it turned out quite well in both cases I think. So I'm not willing to say it's impossible.

That said, The Judge is the best villian I've ever encountered in literature, and it's damn near impossible that someone could pull it off on-screen. satisfied.gif

the exorcist ceased being realistic when it was about a girl being possessed by a demon.

Also, the directors of those types of horror movies tend to stay away from the whole "shot 10 times and still coming at you" thing. In those movies, when you get slashed and hung on a meat hook, you're dead.
have you seen house of 1000 corpses? the ending is not realistic at all. good movie though. the family itself in the movie could very well be a real thing. the world is a big place.

jeepers creepers. I mean, that  creature (with fucking wings) could exist, right? And it was scary as fuck, with its superhuman strength, being able to fly and eager to use your skin to blend into society... which actually ended up not happening, so the ending of the first one made no fucking sense and Justin Long died for nothing!!!

What a fucking awful movie that was.

The first one was fucking terrible, but not gonna lie I loved the second one. For two reasons.

1. Ray Wise.
2. It was directed by a pederast. Seriously.

What's with the quibbling about whether Silence of the Lambs or Henry are horror films? Of course they're fucking horror films, they're about psychopaths who cut people up for fun.

Peeping Tom and The Collector (1965) are highly realistic and seriously disturbing.

American Psycho

I think we've got a few of these on SF
