As in the genre and not the real-life feeling. Horror is considered to be one of the most looked out genres in the entertainment industry. It is the most difficult genre and yet there is something dazzlingly fun about the horror anthologies. the most looked out films are listed for you below:
1. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2013)
The first on the list would be The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, a classic. The film at first wasn’t recognized as much in the beginning due to some of the horrific events displayed and was even banned in some countries.
The plot of the story is utterly illusory (good news), however, the character of Leather’s face and minor plot details were enthused by the crimes of real-life Ed-Gein, a cannibal who wore a human skin made a mask.
The film entirely revolves around an idyllic summer afternoon drive that became the worst nightmare. The film is an account of the tragedy which befell a group of five youths, in particular, Sally Hardesty and her brother, Franklin when they go to the graveyard to visit their grandfather. The events that occur could not have been anticipated nor would they have wished to see as much barmy and terrifying as they were to see that day.
The events of that day were to show the way to the unearthing of one of the most mysterious crimes in the records of American history, The TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE.
2. The Haunting Of Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia (2013)
The story was enthused by the incidences surrounding the Wyrick house of Ellerslie, Georgia, which were published in the book The Veil: Heidi Wyrick Story. The haunting in HAUNTING OF CONNECTICUT 2 does not take place in Connecticut at all but in the state of Georgia, also known as “Connecticut of the south”.
It happens to be an amazingly directed film by Tom Elkins which brings about many jumps scares but doesn’t focus on the ugly facade of ghosts and neither does it fall off the trail of the plot.
A family of 3: Andy, the man of the house along with wife Lisa and daughter Heidi moves into a house of a small town after receiving a deal with a bank.
Soon after their arrival, Heidi begins to have visions that were shrugged off by the parents as imaginary. A little while after, Lisa, already struggling with her sixth sense is bombarded by visions.
The film dramatizes these events and serves in a story about the Underground Railroad and evil taxidermists. Soon they find themselves in the presence of secrets lying underground and threatening to kill anyone in its way.
3. Paranormal Activity (2007)
