Facing the Terror

If you’re a fan of horror movies, you probably love nothing more than to sit down and do an hours-long marathon of online movie watching without a flinch. While some horror movies are just too raw for general release, they have nevertheless gone on to become cult films. Some of them are worth a stream:

The Boneyard
James Cummins’ 1991 feature debut revolves around two police officers and a psychic investigating the disappearance of three children. Further investigation leads them to a condemned mortuary where the children’s remains are not only intact, but they also revive to feast on other victims. Some reviewers stated that the movie’s effects are chillingly graphic, considering Cummins worked as an effects artist on The Twilight Zone.

666: The Child
Christian end-times stories tend to feature the Antichrist as the main villain – and in some cases, there’s an origin of life story thrown in as well. This movie focuses on a young boy who is the sole survivor of a plane crash and is then adopted by a loving couple… unaware that he is The Beast of Christian end-times. The story continues years later in 2007’s 666: The Beast, where the boy is now a successful businessman who manoeuvres to bring about the Apocalypse through tensions between Pakistan and Israel.

Some horror films online are enough to make people cringe, but as a true fan of horror movies, you know that these films also raise questions about the reality of the supernatural.
