What movie to see?
In addition to tapes about vampires, zombies and other vermin, paintings about dolls are very popular. Frightening dolls come to life in the most magical way, and as a result, the viewer expects a whole attraction of nightmares and horrors. Of course, each of these tapes deserves attention, however, in this article we will try to analyze horror films with the most unusual and interesting plot. Are the dolls capable of scaring the viewer, and is it possible to get rid of cliches and platitudes in modern horror films? We will try to deal with these issues.
Dead Silence (Dead Silence, 2006)
James Van is a film director who in a very short time became popular in the horror film genre. His creations instantly gain cult status through the use of excellent visual effects and original scripts. The tape "Dead silence" along with the movie "Saw: The Game of Survival" is considered the best in the director's career.
The film tells the story of a young man named Jemmy, whose spouse dies under mysterious circumstances. Someone is tearing out a tongue from a girl, and the main character is suspected of this. The man remembers that several hours before his death, a strange doll was delivered to their house.
In a small town where Jemmy was born and raised, everyone believed that a local ventriloqui kills people with the help of their dolls, and thus tries to avenge their brutal death. Jemmy does not believe in otherworldly forces, but gradually, faced with increasingly frightening circumstances of the death of his beloved, the young man decides to investigate the town’s mystical beliefs. His discoveries, so frightening and impossible, will lead the young man to a series of terrible and terrific discoveries.
The tape itself will make the viewer really get scared, because the dolls, who become the main villains in the story, make a strange impression. They look so mystical and unusual that the viewer only needs one glance at them to really get scared! Fans of the genre of such a film will certainly appeal, because what is happening on the screen leaves an indelible impression. James Van took care of the beauty of the frame, with the result that the film was aesthetically appealing.
The Puppeteer (Inhyeongsa, 2004)
The theme of the mystical origin of ordinary dolls has long been used by filmmakers around the world. And yet, Asian horror films with their incomprehensible etymology and frightening shots that turn over the consciousness of the audience, always produce the right impression.
In the story, the main character, along with several other young people, receives an invitation to hold a weekend at the house of a famous puppeteer. Chic mansion crammed with a variety of dolls from small to large. Here only so far no one guesses that these dolls live their own lives, and a curse hangs over the house itself. The main character all the time faces a girl in a red dress that looks so much like a doll from her childhood. Mystical events turn into a real bloody cocktail, and as a result the viewer is drawn into a loop of amazing and frightening events.
Of course, this is not the most famous Asian horror film, but for fans of the genre such a tape will be an invaluable gift. The plot develops nonlinearly, it constantly adds frames from the past. In short, an excellent example of the fact that independent cinema is also capable of producing a bright and frightening horror film, which has no analogues.
Maniac (Maniac, 2012)
The protagonist named Frank, at first glance, the unremarkable owner of his salon dummies. However, no one guesses that at night Frank turns into a ruthless killer, capable of destroying any woman in his path.
He does not know pity and mercy, and seeks to transform every girl into his new dummy. But when Anna intrudes into Frank's life, he realizes what the value of true feelings is. Experiencing both attraction and love at the same time, Frank wants to stop, however, his own criminal nature does not allow him to do so.
When a girl finds out about the downside of her new friend's life, she will want to escape. However, from the cunning and thoughtful maniac will not be easy to hide.
This film has become really scandalous. The press discussed the cult of cruelty, which at the expense of this tape was raised to a completely new height. The viewers also did not remain particularly enthusiastic about viewing, and only the most devoted fans of the genre enjoyed watching what was happening on the screen. Watch the tape is at least for the sake of the brilliant game of Elijah Wood. For a young man, such an unusual job is also a kind of experiment. And let the film receive restrained reviews from critics, fans of the genre still appreciated the picture. And this is, in fact, the most important thing, because every film must find its audience.
The Conjuration (The Conjuring, 2013)
Another creation by James Van in 2013 scared everyone, including critics. It is rare to find a horror film that receives such high reviews from critics and audiences around the world. Indeed, the frightening manner of shooting and the specific principle of the narrative have done their job. As a result, the viewer, even with the strongest nerves at least once, will be frightened because of unexpected plot twists.
In the center of the plot are famous scientists, researchers of the paranormal world Ed and Lorain. They take on the next case, which featured an angry demon. This same demon is trying to force the mother of the family to kill five children. The whole family is in awe, and now only the married couple can help them.
One may ask, where is the frightening doll here? In fact, the doll Annabel appears on the screen for just a few minutes, but leaves a lasting impression. The doll itself is a vessel for the strongest demon. The character liked the viewer so much that James Van decided to make a separate story about her. This means that very soon the tape “Spell 2” will be released on the screens, which will surely frighten the audience with its unusual plot and villainous adventures of the demonic doll.
The first tape is worth watching at least for the magnificent reincarnation of the Faith Farmiga. The actress plays at the limit of her abilities, creating a bright and unforgettable image on the screen. Watch for such thoughtful and interesting characters - a pleasure.
Kids Games (Child's Play, 1988)
This film has long become a cult with fans of the genre, in fact, like the main antagonist. A doll named Chucky, into which the maniac’s soul is infused, is so frightening that viewers simply cannot remain indifferent to viewing. That is why the first part has spawned a few more sequels, less successful, but still quite spectacular.
A boy named Andy immediately felt that something was wrong with his doll. The desired toy turned out to be a receptacle for the soul of the criminal, and now the boy and his family are in danger. A doll named Chucky first kills the boy’s nanny, and then tries to move into it altogether. Andy will have to fight with his own toy on his own, because no one believes the boy’s stories about the living doll. Soul maniac breaks free, and only Andy stands in her way.
Very entertaining film, deserving the highest praise. Viewers have always noted that such an unusual story will be remembered after watching. Perhaps the quality of visual effects and the primitive manner of shooting are not credible, but the very idea is simply inimitable. Who knows, maybe it was because of the success of Chuckie that all subsequent tapes were removed on a similar subject.
Perhaps horror movies about dolls are not as popular as, for example, thrillers about maniacs or frightening zombie tapes. However, fans of the genre have long understood that this direction has its own future. While young and talented directors are working in the industry, there is an opportunity to embody even the most controversial and unusual scenarios.
