Top 10 Horror Movies of All Time in London

Top 10 Horror Movies of All Time in London

1. The Innocents

The Innocents

This is one of the moodiest and most atmospheric horror movies ever created is Jack Clayton’s interpretation of “The Turn of the Screw”. It’s also a tonic for anyone who likes thrillers but can’t stand jump scares and other cheap gimmicks. This performance was led by Deborah Kerr.

Director and producer: Jack Clayton

Casts: Deborah Kerr, Martin Stephens, Pamela Frankin, Michael Redgrave, Peter Wyngarde, and Megs Jenkins.

2. The Wicker Man

The Wicker Man

Forget about your damn honey and treat yourself to the real thing if you have only seen the corny version starring Nicolas Cage and have written off the original as a result. Nothing will completely prepare you for the off-kilter weirdness of the Scottish Island or the ritualistic secrets it stands, even the warning that “shocks are so much better absorbed with the knees bent”.  f

Director: Robin Hardy

Casts: Edward Woodward, Britt Ekland, Diane Cilento, Ingrid Pitt, and Christopher Lee.

3. Peeping Tom

Peeping Tom

When it was first released in theatres, this movie is one of the precursors to the modern Slasher, caused such a stir that it all but ended director Michael Powell’s career. This film depicts a serial killer who documents the agonizing final moments of his victims, as did the subsequent reclamation of “peeping tom” as a cult classic and a masterpiece in and of itself.

Director and producer: Michael Powell

Casts: Carl Boehm, Moira Shearer, Anna Massey, and Maxine Audley.

4. Don’t Look Now

Don’t Look Now

This film was released in 1973.  Grief is a common source of horror. Few movies do so effectively as Nicolas Roeg’s tragic version of the same-titled short tale by Daphne Du Maurier, “Don’t Look Now”. Don’t look now movie stars Julie Christie and Donald Sutherland as a married couple who experience an unimaginable loss and discover that their nightmare has just begun. This is a classic, almost as divisive as “The Devils” and no less unsettling.

Director: Nicolas Roeg

Casts: Julie Christie, Donald Sutherland, etc.

5. Kill List

Kill List

This horror film was released in 2011. Ben Wheatley might never top his very unsettling sophomore film, which deftly combines aspects of hitman drama, kitchen-sink realism, and something different story that won’t be revealed here. Rarely does a movie live up to its ominous, unsettling suspense in such a disturbing way. Even if you suspect something is wrong from the beginning, you won’t find out what it is until it’s too late.

Follow along and try not to avert your gaze as it screams toward its indescribably disturbing finish.

Director: Ben Wheatley

Casts: Neil Maskell, MyAnna Buring, and Michael Smiley.

6. Repulsion

Repulsion

Roman Polanski’s personal life gave this masterpiece in 1965 an unsettling tone. Catherine Deneuve’s character struggles with disturbing images and suggestions of sexual abuse the entire time. However, Polanski is a visionary and the cinematographer Gilbert Taylor deserves a lot of praise for this stunning black and white masterpiece that is both beautiful and menacing.

Deneuve’s portrayal of a serial killer going insane is ageless because the distinctions between nightmares and realities are becoming increasingly hazy. Repulsion, in contrast to many other horror movies, depicts everyday objects such as razor blades, mirrors, and rugs as horrifying and supernatural.

Roman Polanski

Casts: Catherine Deneuve, Lan Hendry, John Fraser

7. Village Of The Damned

Village Of The Damned

Those eyes! In “village of the demand”, where demonic children with glowing eyes seize possession of a picturesque British town. Kids have never been creepier. The central mystery is terrible, and the conclusion is bleak. A whole village goes asleep and months later, the ladies are pregnant under questionable circumstances. The events are expertly captured on camera by the director Wolf Rilla.

Who isn’t hesitant to render even the purest of symbols- childbirth- terrifying? Try to avoid the awful 1995 version directed by John Carpenter.

Director: John Carpenter

Casts: Christopher Reeve, Kirstie Alley, Linda Kozlowski, Michael Pare, Mark Hamill, and John Falk.

8. Under The Skin

Under The Skin

Jonathan Glazer and Walter Campbell’s 2013 science fiction film “Under the Skin”, is partially based on Michel Faber’s 2000 novel of the same name. And it was filmed and written by Glazer and Campbell. In it, Scarlett Johansson plays an extra-terrestrial predator of Scottish males. On August 29, 2013, Telluride Film Festival had the movie’s world premiere. On March 14, 2014, it was released in the United Kingdom.

Director: Jonathan Glazer

Casts: Scarlett Johansson

9. Event Horizon

Event Horizon

Paul W. S. Anderson and Philip Eisner’s science fiction horror movie “Event Horizon” was released in 1997. The actors include Sam Neill, Kathleen Quinlan, Joely Richardson, and Laurence Fishburne. The Event Horizon was a test platform for an experimental engine that caused a breach in the space-time continuum and caused our universe to disappear totally, allowing a demonic power to possess it. They discover this information while searching the ship for traces of life.

Director: Paul W. S. Anderson

Casts: Laurence Fishburne, Sam Neill, Kathleen Quinlan, and Joely Richardson

10. Shaun Of The Dead

Shaun Of The Dead

The comedy film “Shaun of the Dead”, which Wright and Simon Pegg wrote and filmed in 2004, features zombies. In this film, Pegg plays Shaun, a depressed salesman from London who gets caught up in the zombie apocalypse alongside his pal Ed (Nick Frost). Kate Ashfield, Lucy Davis, Dylan Moran, Bill Nighy, and Penelope Wilton all appear in this movie. It is the first book in the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy, which also includes the films The World’s End (2013) and Hot Fuzz (2007).

This movie is viewed as a transnational comedic model and a by-product of post-9/11 fear in film studies. The film’s depiction of the zombie epidemic has been utilized as a model for disease prevention.

Director: Edgar Wright

Casts: Simon Pegg, Kate Ashfield, Lucy Davis, Nick Frost, Dylan Moran, Bill Nighy, and Penelope Wilton.
