The Taking Of Deborah Logan
Another interesting horror film footage found by the many who were filmed in 2014. But the independent ' The Taking Of Deborah Logan "stood out from the pile for several reasons. Originally enriched history with original elements such as research for the obsessive Alzheimer disease carried out by the protagonists of the film in the context of a documentary. Also placed a formidable actor in place of the elderly suffering from this disease and who study the protagonists. The terrifying grimaces of this elderly woman freezes the blood!

This film was described by a journalist as a noninvasive combination of David Lynch and David Cronenberg. Well we couldn't agree more. "Starry Eyes" is an excellent horror film with amazing ambient music that travels the hallucinogenic world of protagonist who fervently wants to become Hollywood stars at any price … Even if this involves blood and total mutation of herself. Through the shadowy elite of a film production company and the insatiable ambition of heroine for fame, the film depicts in an original way the tendency of some people to click on people in order to reach socially/professionally and to accomplish their goals.

The New Zealand made its surprise with this wonderful horror comedy. The "Housebound" is a highly contrived film that combines humor with horror in the context of a tight-knit and panexypnis history. Air gives freshness to the horror scene and teaches how to horror comedies should be created by maintaining exemplary balance between comic and horror elements. This really is or is not a haunted house where the young protagonist is forced to stay together with the naive mother? If you want to know the answer then strut in the movie without inhibitions!

Generally speaking is the best horror movie of the year. No matter how heavy you are the title, the Australian "The Babadook" can lift comfortably and creates the conditions to become a classic early on. Critics, audiences and persons who have a direct relationship with the cinema as the William Friedkin (Director of the Exorcist) praised the movie of Jennifer Kent. Through the turbulent relationship of a mother with her seven year old son and the advent of a horrific creature at home the Director managed to create an impressive film with menacing atmosphere and many genuine moments of fear and horror.
