Horror Movie Squadby brittiano | created - 15 Jun 2016 | updated - 3 weeks ago | Public
In the beginning of 2015, two of my friends and I decided to challenge ourselves on a new genre: horror. I had never watched a full horror movie before, as I was more of a thriller-genre person or I had only seen snippets, nor did I expect to like it so much. My first ever horror was Insidious which was followed by The Conjuring. Not long after that I also dared to see horror movies in the cinema, including Insidious: Chapter 3 and the Conjuring 2. By then, more and more people joined our ''Horror Movie Squad''.
My favourite kind of horrors are the mysterious and spiritual ones, not the gore and ripping apart bodies kind. Though there might be movies which contain parts of these elements, we honestly just watched them because we were able to and wanted to see if we liked it.
Demonic possession, evil spirits and investigation in mysterious deaths fascinate me, always have, that's why these kind of horrors appeal to me. Down below there will be a list of horror movies I'd like to point out. There will be movies added after I've seen them.
