Interesting topic, Aries! I have not seen that movie but from what you described about that one scene, I will stay away. I cannot do gore especially when it regards animals. Even an animal being hurt deeply affects me.
Yes, Augustus! I remember watching "The Woman in Black" back in high school. Had the whole entire house dark and it was a stormy night = great atmosphere.
I loved it and it did a good job in my opinion. It's hard for me to find horror movies I like that don't rely on blood or cheap tricks. I started to watch the sequel but got too bored with it.
My "horror" does not include horror movies, but two movies that were hard to watch, and ones that most people wouldn't want to watch again.
1). Requiem for a Dream". I watched it many years ago and it touches so painfully on the truth of addiction and what you would do for drugs. Just the way it was shot portrays how you seem to give up your humanity and it's heartbreaking beyond belief.
2). One I watched recently on Netflix: "Hard Candy" with Ellen Page. Woah. This shocked me SO much. It's about a teenager who tries to outsmart someone she surmises is a sex offender; she "punishes" him for his perverse thoughts/actions with threats of mutilation, etc. Very crude and thought-provoking. She takes a stand for those who are victimized and sexualized, yet she resorts to torture to prove her point.
