There’s a plethora of horror movies in 2019, but we’ve compiled our list to help you get started. You can choose between Midsommar, The Curse of La Llorona, and Hotel Mumbai, among others. Or, you can even watch a banana splits movie starring Adam Brody! Whatever you choose, we hope you enjoy the ride! And if you haven’t yet seen these movies, you can read our reviews to get an idea of what’s coming up in 2019.
The Curse of La Llorona
If the horror genre is all about jump scares, then The Cure of La Llorona isn’t for you. Director Michael Chaves tries to create a chilling atmosphere by relying on loud musical stings and jump scares, but it doesn’t work that well. While it’s not as bad as The Nun, it doesn’t add enough to the film’s creepiness and lacks any semblance of horror.
It’s hard to imagine a more traditional ghost story than The Cure of La Llorona, which is currently streaming on Shudder. The specter is an old Mexican legend that supposedly drowns children in order to find their murdered offspring. The Cure of La Llorona is one of the more creative haunted house movies to come out of Mexico in recent years, and it has found a new audience on the scream-friendly streaming platform Shudder.
The film tells the story of a caseworker who accidentally draws the Weeping Woman La Llorona. The spirit kills children in a jealous rage. The caseworker fails to save the two children in the story, but she eventually puts her own children in the eyes of the Weeping Woman. Like many Latin American ghost stories, The Cure of La Llorona is one of the best films of 2019 for horror fans.
The Cure of La Llorona is a familiar horror thriller. It’s part of the Conjuring Universe series and is a sequel to the acclaimed “Resident Evil” film. The story revolves around a jilted wife who kills her children and is forever searching for more children to drown. It’s a well-directed, albeit drab, supernatural horror film.
The Swedish film title Midsommar (summer) is a play on the cult genre and its tradition of celebrating darkness as a dangerous force. Director Ari Aster has used some cool camera tricks to convey a break from the third person narrative and to suggest that the film takes place in the third person. While it does involve hammering people and dancing around a flower pole, there are no human sacrifices here. The film is a solid and well-crafted horror movie that will be able to hold the audience’s attention from start to finish.
Despite the dreadful premise, Midsommar has several strong points. While it relies on a familiar folk-horror formula, the director has a solid background in folk horror, and the film is shot in beautiful blazing sunshine. Florence Pugh’s performance is a standout, and the film makes smart commentary on gender roles. Midsommar will undoubtedly be a big hit in 2019.
This film’s story is complicated, but ultimately, it’s worth the watch. There are several distinct sections to the film. In the first half, the overture (before the title cards appear) sets the tone for the rest of the film. After this, the movie is largely focused on the deaths of Dani’s family members. She is subsequently plunged into a state of grief. However, the final act of the movie is a particularly intense one, with numerous gruesome scenes involving full-front male nudity, sexual assault, and general screaming.
In “Midsommar,” we learn that Christian’s friends are aware of Dani’s presence, even though she has to face the unsettling truth about her relationship with Christian. Dani, however, chooses the optional truth over the inconvenient one. The movie also shows how much characters practice deluding themselves, which is helpful in justifying their behaviors later. This delusion makes it easier to remain in an alien place than to leave.
While the premise for this latest movie is a familiar one, there is something new in the way it deals with this terrifying real-life horror event. A family whose son mysteriously falls into a coma is terrorized by ghosts inhabiting an alternate astral dimension. This mind-bending film is a must-see, but it also costs less than $1. If you’re not sure whether you should watch it, here’s a list of reasons why you should.
The film is loosely based on true events and features a cast of actors including Armie Hammer, Nazanin Boniadi, and Jason Isaacs. The hotel’s staff includes an unassuming Sikh waiter named Dev Patel, a resourceful Sikh named Arjun, and an enigmatic chef named Vasili. The movie also features a famous chef named Anupam Kher, and an Italian architect. Despite all of the actors’ acting skills, Hotel Mumbai is a compelling thriller with its compelling storyline and well-acted characters.
Unlike most horror movies, Hotel Mumbai emphasizes the complexity of human characters. Instead of a jingoistic battle between good and evil, this movie depicts a vicious hierarchy within evil. This is especially effective in revealing the mindset of terrorists. While the film has moments of harrowing horror, there are also moments of arousing speech or an action beat straight out of Die Hard. The film is a true horror that is sure to scare you.
Hotel Mumbai is a tense and gripping drama based on the real-life events that occurred in the city of Bombay in 2008. The attack targeted four locations, including the Taj Mahal Palace hotel, an iconic Indo-Gothic landmark. Maras covers all angles of the Taj Mahal Palace hotel in the film, including the perspectives of the terrorists and the hotel staff. Despite the movie’s realistic depiction of the terrorists, Hotel Mumbai is a far harder watch than popular popcorn movies like ’24’.
The Banana Splits Movie
The Banana Splits Movie is an animated horror film starring a gorilla and a human girl named Paige. Paige is a high school student who is in love with Harley. Harley and her friend, Zoe, are trying to make a movie about them. Paige is a talented actress and she is the star of the movie. But the teen’s crush on Harley makes her run for her life. In the end, the movie will turn out to be a nightmare for the group, and they will be forever changed.
Though some critics gave it a mediocre rating, many viewers enjoyed it despite its low ratings. The movie is funny and can be enjoyed by fans of bad films. According to Rotten Tomatoes, it has a 67% approval rating, while it has an average rating of 5.1 on IMDb. If you are considering watching it, keep in mind that the film isn’t suited for children.
The Banana Splits characters first appeared on television in the 1960s, but now they are back in a live action movie. This movie isn’t appropriate for children, and has a rating of R. Despite the cuteness, the movie is not suitable for younger viewers. The film takes place in an alternate reality wherein the Banana Splits are the murderous monsters that destroy everything, including the humans.
The Banana Splits movie was first proposed by the Syfy’s vice president of development, Scott Cawthon. The movie was later made by director Brian Esterhazy, who took the idea from the original cartoon and based it on the 1988 classic Chopping Mall and 1986’s Child’s Play. While the film didn’t have a huge following, it did garner comparisons to the Five Nights at Freddy’s franchise.
Happy Death Day 2U
The sequel to the Blumhouse hit Happy Death Day is a fun and creepy horror movie about an ill-fated birthday. Starring Jessica Rothe as the titular Tree, the sequel takes us on a similar path with the same characters, although the time-loop gimmick is different. This time around, Tree and her scheming friend Carter have become more than just friends. The movie opens in a later time, when Tree and Carter are finally a thing.
While Happy Death Day 2U takes the basic formula of the first film and improves on it, the film remains predictable and lackluster. The movie’s plot stretches itself too thin and doesn’t develop any of its secondary characters sufficiently. While it has potential, Happy Death Day 2U suffers from poor writing and lackluster character development. It also relies too heavily on predictable jump scares and over-the-top exaggeration to keep the audience interested.
The plot of Happy Death Day 2U questions the purpose of a slasher sequel. The premise of the movie echoes the Groundhog Day premise, and Jessica Rothe’s character, Tree, is murdered on her birthday, but the killer is unable to stop the murder. The movie uses a sci-fi twist to great effect, with Tree trapped in a time loop with her mother.
The sequel, “Happy Death Day 2U”, is more complicated than its predecessor. Christopher Landon, the writer of the first film, offers canny fan service and references the memorable elements of the first movie. Unlike many horror sequels, Landon assumes its audience knows about the original, thereby breaking the cardinal rule of the genre: make the sequel as accessible as possible. The sequel is a fun movie to watch with a group of friends, significant others, sibling, or a teacher.
