Subscribed or whatever. I am constantly doing Google searches for "Best horror movies" and I have no idea why I never have come here to look at what Qt3 has recommended. I certainly comb through Tom's movie reviews. Exclusively why I watched Green Room and The Invitation.
I made it a point to see Get Out in the theater mostly based on limited initial buzz about it being a smart horror film. I was not disappointed. I went opening day. Similarly, I am looking forward to It Comes at Night.
I am in a weird stage in my life where graphic violence is not an issue in the context of a good horror film, but when it is so prominently displayed in advertising/stills, I shy away. I can't really pinpoint why that is. Maybe there is some upper limit of blood and gore I can tolerate that is often presented in a realistic way that is implied in any preview of the movie I digest. Don't want this to devolve into a torture porn debate again so I will leave it at that. :) I will say Raw looks amazing, but I think it may be on that avoid list despite the universal praise. I know I have done so with several other critically and audience acclaimed horror movies (Haute Tension and Old Boy among others) even though I have been assured they are "not that bad". Seems like too much for my unpredictably finicky old man tastes.
Anyways, don't get to the theater as much as I would like so maybe I really need to go back to the 2016 thread (EDIT: Which I had actually posted in last year. old man brain) and see what the streaming services now have available. Definitely will watch A Dark Song sooner rather than later.
Thanks for the summaries @peacedog!!
