One of the scariest films I’ve ever seen remains Don’t Look Now. It was made in 1973. Julie Christie and Donald Sutherland play a couple visiting Venice while mourning the death of their daughter. They meet two elderly sisters who are psychic and things descend slowly into horror. It’s based on the book by Daphne DuMaurier, which I’ve read and I can recommend that too.
The other one that stays with me is an old black and white film from the 1940s called Dead Of Night. It’s a very rare British horror film because they were banned during WW11. An architect arrives at a country cottage - invited by the owner to consult on some renovations. On going into the cottage, he is introduced to other guests and tells them that, despite never having met any of them, he has seen them all in a recurring dream, and proves able to predict events in the house before they happen. He tells them that in the dream something dreadful happens later on. One by one, the guests then attempt to test his foresight with individual stories of strange events they experienced or were told about.
It’s one of the creepiest films I’ve ever seen with a twist at the end, which I won’t reveal. If you can find it anywhere I thoroughly recommend it.
That sounds fascinating! I’ll look our for it!
I found both Dead of Night and Don’t look now on IMDb and Dead of Night is available on Amazon Prime Video - you can watch a trailers of both films here
Well worth a watch - but not alone !!
