I just saw a creepy hidden gem of a film. Currently on iPlayer (but not for much longer) and Amazon: The Borderlands
It’s a ‘found footage’ but head and shoulders above most of the genre. Has a few cheap scares but is mostly about a slow ratcheting up of the tension and dread. You don’t know exactly where it is going until the final gut-punch reveal, which is now playing on my mind and robbing me of sleep (hence why I am posting at 2:45am). After watching I found Mark Kermode's review, he said he almost had to leave because it was too much and he’s a horror veteran.
Yeah Borderlands is great, a visit to the church in Devon is on my bucket list!
Another good found footage, I think available on Amazon Prime, is Hellhouse LLC, nothing particularly new bout it, but well made and gave me the heebiejeebies (cellars have always crapped me up though)
There's a few crackers on Netflix at the moment, I thought The Monster was great, really tense, better than A Quiet Place imo, which it reminded me of.
And if you haven't yet seen it, Hereditary really is the best horror film of recent years, deeply unsettling and even better on a second viewing.
