Líyak Wmw's Top Four Horror Films...And A Song
Liyak Wmw of Industrial metal outfit A.T.Modell gives his top four favorite films...And his favorite song from the "28 Days Later" OST. Check out his mixed and matched list, consisting of horror comedies and the always great Michael Heneke.
"The Cabin In The Woods" by Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard
"A meta-horror movie that starts full of conventionalisms but with a very good reason. Based, as a matter of fact, on why this is so, this movie teems with originality and black humor. I would like to tell more, but if you haven't watch it, it's better to do it without knowing very much about it. You will enjoy it lots more!"
"Funny Games" by Michael Heneke
"Dark Water" by Hideo Nakata
"Maybe this movie is not very supernatural and as such it is not very Halloween-esque, but maybe because it can really happen is precisely why it scares so much. This piece of pure psychopathy is one of the most difficult movies I have ever watched, since the more you view the more you feel a sheer sense of revulsion that doesn't get better. If you want to have an experience that will undermine your faith in retribution and humanity, go watch it! A remake with Naomi Watts and Tim Roth was made in 2007 by Haneke himself, but the rawness of the original makes the one from 1997 superior."
"No Halloween list would be complete without a Japanese terror movie. I don't know if it's about what they eat or what, but the movies from that part of the world are many times a perfect mixture of psychological and supernatural terror (the faces!) in a grade outshining occidental ones. For my list I have chosen "Dark Water", which I watched (wrongly) at home alone at 3 AM. Yes, this one has ghosts. And yes, this one is frightening. Watch it in the correct mood, and you will have a very funny experience!"
"Addams Family Values" by Barry Sonnenfeld
"It's already a classic, but notice I have put the second one over the first. Of course, the first was good, but the second one is more cynical, more wicked, more mean. The social jokes and criticism make a good movie to have a black humor laugh on Halloween, and I'm sure you will identify yourself with the sayings and attitudes from this family over the rest."
"In The House, In A Heartbeat" by John Murphy ("28 Days Later" OST)
"I believe this is one of the songs that better represent despair in any moment, and of course when your loved ones have been becoming flesh-eating zombies, haha. The cadence and tension of its neverending crescendo give me goosebumps every time I listen to it, and makes a good soundtrack of everything hopeless."

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
