If you don't live in said region and use google chrome, you can get the Hola better internet app to switch what your browser recognizes your country as so you don't have to go through the IP **** to change your country. And it saves the country for that website so you don't have to change it every time, but you can change it back if you want. It's great.

tl;dr below

Now, before anyone starts looking up IMDB or RT ratings, I'll tell you up front that they're average at best.

However, The Last Will and Testament of Rosalind Leigh (LWTRL) does something that so scarcely seen in the horror genre, which is a direction I REALLY wish more people would go in.

LWTRL is a horror story that centers around the main character, who, other than in a brief flash back, is the only character ever seen on the set. He speaks to a few others on the phone, but generally this is a one man show.

Now most horror films use some arbitrary force as their antagonist. A demon. A psycho killer. A monster. Just something that wants everyone dead for a very vague or cliche reason. LWTRL derives this antagonistic force FROM the character. HE is the source of the evil that haunts him due to his past. It's a personal story that doesn't pit some random thing against some random family. It's about him and his own demons. The entire narrative would be changed if he were replaced or changed in anyway, which most horror movies can't say, because all of the characters and antagonists are usually just victims of circumstance. They just happen to live in the wrong house, or say the wrong thing to the wrong person, or just happen to live during the 1000 year cycle of the evil demonic wereboar or something.

Those horror films are just about the killing, blood, and screaming. Some do it better than others, but I doubt many of you would agree that they have good stories, and probably would say you laugh at them more than you jump and freak out at them. Mostly because you see the protagonists as just fodder to die.

LWTRL gives us a character who we understand a bit more, and have to stick with. Admittedly he doesn't grow much, but the scares are more genuine since we understand why they're there more. There's symbolism, and meaning behind EVERYTHING in this movie.

Something that Silent Hill fans might get a kick out of.

If this is OC, could you do one specifically for horror movies? If it isn't disregard this message and carry on.

Some more for you:

Wake Wood
A Tale Of Two Sisters (The japanese original, US remake is horrible)
Audition
Martyrs
Hard Candy
Frontiers
They
Kill List (Not so horrory, but good anyway)
Poltergeist

Also, look out for any other Asian horror movies, they are far ahead in this genre.

I'm surprised The Breakfast Club isn't on here.
I didn't want to watch it at first because the title sounded lame and it was a 'classic'.
But when I saw it, the acting was natural and you felt like there just happened to be cameras following the actors around. Definitely the best movie I've seen in a long time.

Ok, here's my recommendation. It's an Estonian film called Klass.

Here's the reason you should watch it. This kid, this ******* kid, is the greatest movie villain of all time. I want you to think of the last time a movie villain made you hate them. Not think "oh yeah, he's pretty evil." not "wow, what a prick." actual, genuine hatred. This ************* cuntbag is the only character I have ever seen make me physically shake with anger. I was so mad by the end of this movie, I was ready to scream. If I ever met the actor, I would tell him he is amazing and then I would deck the **** out of him.

And then comes the ending. Oh. My. God. The ending. Just when you think he's going to get his comeuppance, something happens. A loud voice in your head will yell "HAHA, YES. And then a little voicewill say "Wait. No. Oh no, God no." Because this film will play you so ******* hard. It makes you, for just a few moments, into a monster and you will experience cognitive dissonance in a way you never thought possible. And then the film will end and you will sit there for a good long while in shock, not just about what happened, but how it made you feel.

******* watch this film. Prepare to hate this kid and prepare to hate yourself.

Why do people download films instead of streaming them on sites?
#147 to #145 - creepyunclebob (11/22/2013) [-]
way higher visual quality. I used to stream shows exclusively, but once you torrent once you can't go back to that 240p resolution.

Try a movie called Snow on the Bluff, its a reenacted documentary/true story of a small time Detroit street hustler blair witch project style, or Red State a horror movie about a radical religious cult in a rural town

Don't forget that they have MLP: FiM there too.
The majority of people I know (including me) got hooked on the show because we watched it out of boredom. I kid you not.
