    The Hitcher (1986)

    Wow, just wow. This road-based horror-thriller easily has to be one of the most nihilistic and downbeat movies I've seen, and believe me because I've seen alot of them. This is the kind of movie that grabs you and never stops, and while it admittedly gets rather far-fetched in places, it is some pretty heavy shit.

    The premise is simple really. An average kid named Jim is delivering a car from Chicago…

Everything from the grotesque special effects, the atmosphere and the creepy music score, it all combines to create an effective chiller that still delivers to this day.

    Based on the science-fiction short story "Who Goes…

    Kubrick Double Bill #2
    The Shining (1980)

    When discussing the all-time best horror films, it's all too likely that The Shining will be listed amongst those, and for good reason. Even today, it remains chilling affair that excels in it's structure, surreal imagery, creepy atmosphere and stylish direction courtesy of one Stanley Kubrick. I'd personally go on to call it my personal favourite of the director's work.
