Transcript of Horror Films
Horror Films are unsettling films designed to frighten and panic, cause dread and alarm, and to invoke our hidden worst fears, often in a terrifying, shocking finale, while captivating and entertaining us at the same time in a cathartic experience.
Distraught after losing his fortune in the 2008 financial crisis, stockbroker Jeffrey Desange kills his business partners and estranged wife before taking his children, three-year-old Victoria and one-year-old Lilly, away from home. Driving dangerously fast on a snowy road, Jeffrey loses control and the car slides down the mountain, ramming into the woods. Surviving, he takes the children into an abandoned cabin. Planning to kill his daughters and commit suicide, he holds a gun to Victoria's head, but a shadowy figure kills him. The girls, huddled by the fireside, are tossed a cherry by the mysterious figure.
A married couple Josh (Patrick Wilson) and Renai (Rose Byrne), their sons Dalton (Ty Simpkins) and Foster (Andrew Astor), and infant daughter Cali have recently moved into a new home. One night, Dalton is drawn to the attic when he hears creaking noises and sees the door open by itself. He falls from a ladder while investigating and sees a figure in the shadows. Hearing his terrified screams, Renai and Josh rush to his aid and declare the attic "off limits" to the children. The next day, Dalton falls into an inexplainable coma.
After three months of treatment without result, Renai and Josh are allowed to take Dalton home. Soon after, supernatural activity begins to occur; Renai begins hearing voices over the baby monitor when no one is in Cali's room, Foster says that Dalton sleepwalks at night, Renai sees a frightening figure of a man in Cali's room, who vanishes when Josh comes and the burglar alarm is repeatedly triggered for no reason with the front door open. After Renai finds a bloody hand print on Dalton's bed, she questions Josh about the house, but he ignores her. That night, Renai is attacked by the figure from Cali's room, and the Lamberts decide to abandon the house and move elsewhere.
On the early morning of March 11, 2008, television reporter Angela Vidal and her cameraman, Scott Percival, are assigned to follow firefighters Jake and Fletcher on their night shift. They are given a brief tour of the fire department, but an emergency call from an apartment building sends the crew out to investigate. When they arrive, the caller says that he and the other residents heard screams from an old woman who has locked herself in her apartment. The firemen, police officers, and camera crew go to the apartment, only to be attacked by the old woman, who becomes extremely aggressive and bites one of the policemen. Eventually, they are forced to kill her to stop her. As all the residents in the building head downstairs for safety, the team finds a second old woman similar to the first and bring her downstairs with the others.
Young Debbie Galardi (Claire Beale) and Laine Morris (Afra Sophia Tully) play with a Ouija board in a flashback, where Debbie tells Laine the rules of the board, the most important being not to play alone.
Years later, a visibly unnerved Debbie (Shelley Hennig) is shown tossing a Ouija board into a fire after saying "goodbye". She declines Laine's (Olivia Cooke) invitation to watch a school basketball match, preferring to be left alone, while also sharing a story about how she discovered a Ouija board in her home and used it. When she gets back inside, she finds that the Ouija board has mysteriously materialized back in her bed. Debbie is subsequently possessed and forced to commit suicide. Grieving over her death, Laine suspects that Debbie's suicide might have something to do with the Ouija board and decides to use it, enlisting the help of her boyfriend, Trevor (Daren Kagasoff), their waitress friend, Isabelle (Bianca Santos), and Laine's rebellious younger sister, Sarah (Ana Coto).
In 1971, Roger and Carolyn Perron move into a dilapidated farmhouse in Harrisville, Rhode Island with their five daughters Andrea, Nancy, Christine, Cindy, and April. During the first day, their move goes smoothly, though their dog Sadie refuses to enter the house and one of the daughters finds a boarded up entrance to a cellar.
A few paranormal events happen within the first few nights, including all of the clocks stopping at exactly 3:07 AM and Sadie being found dead in the back yard. One night, while they are both in bed, Christine feels a tugging on her leg, which she first expects to be Nancy, but is a spirit only she can see. She begins to scream and tells her family that the spirit wants the family dead. Carolyn is folding laundry in the night when she hears clapping in the hallway. When she goes to investigate, all the picture frames along the wall fall and shatter on the floor. She goes downstairs following laughter and finds the basement door opening slowly. When she goes inside to investigate, she's trapped there by the spirit who claps beside her as her matchstick flickers out. At the same moment, Andrea and Cindy are attacked by a spirit on top of the wardrobe.
The Woman in Black
an English village, Crythin Gifford, in 1889, three young girls make-believing a tea party with their dolls. They look up suddenly at something off-screen and, as though mesmerized, jump to their deaths from the bedroom window en masse.
Some years later, in Edwardian era London, widowed lawyer and father Arthur Kipps (Daniel Radcliffe) is instructed to visit Crythin Gifford to orchestrate the sale of Eel Marsh House, an estate on the neighboring marshland, and retrieve any relevant documents left by its deceased owner Alice Drablow with the understanding that failure to do so will result in the termination of his employment. Upon his arrival, Arthur finds that many of the villagers rather curt and unwelcoming, though he finds sympathy in a wealthy local landowner Samuel Daily (Ciarán Hinds); and Mrs. Fischer, a tavern-keeper who still grieves the loss of her daughters. The latter persuades her husband to let him stay at their inn for their night, though she encourages him to leave the village at his earliest opportunity.
The next morning, Arthur goes to meet his legal contact, Mr. Jerome, who tries to hurry him away with the assurance that Arthur's firm has already received all the relative paperwork. Arthur, undeterred, hires a local driver to take him to Eel Marsh.
