The Nightmare

The Nightmare


  • Year: 2015
  • Cast: Siegfried Peters, Steven Yvette, Yatoya Toy

It’s not often that a documentary can unnerve you as thoroughly as The Nightmare. While director Rodney Ascher’s previous outing, Room 237, took on various interpretations of Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, The Nightmare tackles the phenomenon of sleep paralysis and manages to frame it in a way as shocking and tense as any horror film.

Let Me In

Let Me In


  • Year: 2010
  • Cast: Kodi Smit-McPhee, Chloë Grace Moretz, Elias Koteas, Richard Jenkins

While inferior to its original Swedish inspiration, Let the Right One In, Let Me In is nevertheless a brilliant and deeply emotional film. A bullied young boy strikes up a friendship with a young girl who only appears around his apartment building at night. There are some genuine moments of horror, but the relationship between shy Owen and his neighbour Abby is the real centrepiece here.

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me


  • Year: 1992
  • Cast: Kyle MacLachlan, Sheryl Lee, Mädchen Amick, Ray Wise

David Lynch’s films sometimes defy classification, but they often stray closer to the orbit of horror than that of other genres. While the Twin Peaks television show tempered its horror with a heavy dose of cerebral comedy, this film prequel offers no such respite. Rather than answering any of the lingering questions of the series, the film instead focuses on the final days of murder victim Laura Palmer, as well as a case that might or might not be connected. It also features some excellent acting turns from Chris Isaak and David Bowie.
