1. A Tale of Two Sisters
If your brother died under strange circumstances in the attic of his home … don’t move in there. You just might resurrect him from the dead, along with a bunch of S&M-loving demons. Hellraiser has come to be regarded as a body horror classic since it was released in 1987. Watch it and you’ll see why.
4. Children of the Corn
In this 1984 cult film, based on the Stephen King short story, a little boy preacher—at the behest of a malevolent force—in a small Nebraska town convinces the local children to band together to murder all of the adults. Things get particularly bad when an adult couple unwittingly happens upon the town. You will want to avoid cornfields—and probably children—for a while after seeing this movie.
5. Let the Right One In
This moving film, straddling the line between horror, coming-of-age, and romance, has been universally praised since its 2008 release. The bond between human Oskar and not-so-human Eli is so powerful and well-acted that Let the Right One In has been recognized not just as a killer vampire movie, but as a modern horror classic.
This body horror flick comes from the progeny of the king of body horror, David Cronenberg. David’s son, Brandon, does not disappoint. In the dystopian future, clients can pay to be injected with the diseases afflicting their favorite celebs, in order to feel a special connection to their idols. It only gets weirder from there.
7. Dream Home
Have you ever wanted an apartment so badly you’d kill everyone who stood in your way of owning it? That might just sound like the reality of the cut-throat real estate market, but director Pang Ho-cheung takes it to the next level in this 2010 Hong Kong slasher.
8. We Are What We Are
9. The Woman
Re-Animator, based on an H.P. Lovecraft novella, is a comedy-horror cult classic. A doctor and student attempt to bring people back from the dead, with wacky and horrifying results.
11. Jug Face
The backwoods community featured in this disturbing film engages in incest, human sacrifice, and bizarre worship rituals. When a young woman discovers she’s next to be sacrificed, she goes to great lengths to stay alive, and throws the community into chaos.
