#horrorking31recommends Part 1
One of the best things about this incredible community is the amount of movie recommendations that I've received from so many of you. And, in turn, I've had so many of you beautiful people ask me for some of my movie recommendations as well.
So I thought I would share a list of movies that are not so well-known, but which deserve much more attention than they receive.
I'm going to break the list up into 5 or so posts. The films here are all ones that I own and they fall under a wide array of genres- they aren't limited strictly to horror.
Beauty and the Beast- this black and white film by French director Jean Cocteau is one of the most incredible films I've ever seen. It blends fantasy with subtle shades of horror, creating a movie unlike anything you've seen before. Note that it is a French film, so if you're not a fan of foreign films, this may not be for you.
Big Ass Spider- this movie is as much of s blast as it sounds like. It is surprisingly clever, ingeniously funny, and entertaining as all hell.
Bunraku- I've heard people blast this film in the past for being devoid of developed characters, but I don't think that's what it intends to offer. This film is one of the most visually incredible movies that I've ever seen, and deserves much more praise than it's received.
Dark City- this film noir is ingenious! It is highly unique, brilliantly shot, and one of the most original films I've ever seen. It also incorporates a fair amount of horror elements into its visuals, so fans of horror should be pleased.
The Phantom Carriage- one of my all-time favorite horror films. This 1921 silent film is one of the most eerie, influential films you'll ever see. All horror fans must watch this!
Rise of the Guardians- I'm a 27 year old male but I adore this movie. It was severely overlooked by audiences when it was released. It is so entertaining, incredibly animated, and one of the most engaging movies you'll see, regardless of your age.
