Help finding a movie about a cult worshipping some kind of demon/spirit

I originally watched it when I was about 6-7 years old and it traumatized the heck out of me. I have been searching this movie for years and years now I honestly don’t know what else to do.

I remember it was about a group of friends who were like rebels or stoners not sure. They visited a house or church that was like the worshipping grounds of a cult so the demon/spirit has been lingering in the place, just dormant. But then the group visited the now abandoned place and disturbs the spirit so one of them die one by one.

There were 4-6 friends and they all split up. One group of 2 girls and a guy initiated a threesome between them then they died I don’t remember how. The most memorable death for me was a guy was in the basement and he was looking at like a mirror or like a concrete mixer, it was just rectangular or square shaped object and he got sucked in and his bones were breaking one by one until he eventually disappears inside it.

That’s pretty much what I remember, my sisters and I have been looking for it. Any help is appreciated

Need good suggestions for my mom

Does anyone have any good suggestions for someone who likes horror but not the dark or gory type?

She got me into horror as a kid but it was with things like the universal monster movies and such and whatever the newer ones were she showed me were relatively light or horror comedy like the Burbs.

So I’m looking for things that are either good but not super scary/gory/grim/etc. or some good horror comedies!

Thank you for any good recs y’all can think of!!

The Final (2010) - Did anyone else see this? What did you guys think of it?

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1390535/?ref_=tt_urv

I just rewatched this 14 years later and I actually think it's a lot better and more relevant today than it was back then. The only objective issues I had with it was some of the writing got a little cheesy and the acting was a little inconsistent by some of the characters, but the message and enjoyability is definitely up there.

I consider this to be a hidden gem in the horror/thriller genre, personally. but I want to know your opinions on it.

Out of the UniversalMonster movies, which one is your least favorite

Only counting the first film in each of their franchises. all later films may be talked about in the future

For me after thinking long and hard, I have to say Dracula at this time. I still love the film but out of the rest. I feel like its just a bit weaker in how slow it can at times which normally isn't a problem for me but for some reason it is here.

Still enjoy the film and my views may changed next time I watch all the films. But Bela Lugosi shined as Dracula! in fact besides him and renfield some the other characters can feel a bit dull

The Wailing Tattoo Ideas

Looking to commemorate one of my favorite horror films in the form of a tattoo. Problem is, I can’t think of a good idea. Any recommendations would be helpful. I don’t want it too big and also don’t want any character faces. Let me know! Thank you.

What’s good on Shudder rn?

I’m talking about good plot, good cinematography, acting, characters you become invested in, creative story, maybe a good soundtrack even. Some horror movies I love are The Shining, Let the right one in, rosemaries baby, it follows, the innocents(the old one), the witch, Wickerman, alien, moloch, posessor.

Just watched The Autopsy of Jane Doe.....

I kept hearing it's a very scary film. I enjoyed it's direction, makeup and performances from Brian Cox and Emile Hirsch, but other than that, it wasn't scary, like...at all. Maybe it's just me and anything that can happen in real life scares me. This was a little ridiculous. Thoughts?

historical horror recommendations?

my favorite horror subgenre is historical. (not sure how else to describe it.) i’m talking The Ring, Fear Street 1666, and i’m pretty sure Smile has this too. horror with curses or creatures that go back centuries, people have been facing it for a long time. it gives me chills and i can’t find any movies with it. please recommend!!

Do you REALLY like to be scared?

During a discussion today- we went from talking about why a 12 yr old can’t watch Hellraiser movies to- is there a decent percentage of horror fans who have some sort of fetish? This then lead into discussing haunts/haunters and people who love going to haunted houses. Though most probably wouldn’t admit it- hardcore horror fans may either go or work at these places bc it’s providing an IRL outlet for that in a safe way?

If you fetishize horror (as either a victim or villain role) are you aware of any ways people network or meet like minded people? Obviously there’s horror themed corn but I’m wondering if there’s some underground horror movie dating scene lol.

What would be the scariest/most unusual animal to center a horror movie around?

Y'know how there's a lot of movies out there about killer sharks, snakes, spiders... what's an animal that hasn't been done (or done well) before? How would you do it? It can be real or fictional.

Can’t remember movie name

I’m thinking of a scene and it’s pretty vivid in my head. Basically it involved a character getting tangled in wires/cables or something and they pull to really contort their body.

EDIT: It was the elevator scene in Evil Dead Rise. Give me some recs on similar movies.

Need help finding a movie title!

Hi all - I watched a horror movie on the SyFy channel a few years back. I don’t remember much…but I DO remember it involved kids. There was a creepy girl who had buttons sewn on her eyes. At one point, button eye girl and a guy were sitting at a table and she stabed his hand into the table with a knife. Ugh that’s literally all I remember 😭 I want to find the name of this movie so bad! Thank you for any suggestions!

Wow, Hell House LLC Origins is actually so bad

Dumb decisions and dumb motivations to be still holding a camera takes you so out of the movie that the "good" jumpscares almost can't make you feel nothing.

I think there's like a good direction, knowing how to build the moments of tension, but sadly, poor writings.
Usually I consider horror movies with IMDB's grade >6 good enough, I don't expect nothing phenomenal by its grade but this is just an insult for anyone who is used to watch some horror movies

The Vampire Lovers (1971), uncensored version?

I've been searching for the uncensored version of this movie online with no luck. Has anyone else found a copy? From what I've heard, the censored version on Amazon/streaming sites leaves out many scenes from the original film.

I've been getting into gothic vampire movies, especially ones based on Carmilla, and I've heard this one is an absolute classic. I'd prefer to watch it in its original form.

Why can i not watch movie gore?

So the title may be a bit confusing, sorry for that. Also sorry if this isn’t the right place to post this. So, for some reason I can perfectly watch real gore without getting scared or being disgusted, but I have to close my eyes at the tiniest drop of blood in movies. I don’t know why, I had to close my eyes even in that scene in the Martian were they perform surgery on themselves. Does anyone else have this, or know why?

Can we get some variety in posts?

Every other post on here is all like “what’s the scariest scene in a horror movie” “what’s the scariest horror villain” “what’s the goriest movie you’ve ever seen” “what’s a horror movie you’d recommend to a non-horror fan” “what’s a movie you’ll never watch again” and it’s p much the same responses every time. Late last night I saw a post from someone who wrote this big ass long thing trying to have a discussion about the phrase “torture porn” and they were comparing movies usually associated with the phrase to Eden Lake which they were saying goes against that formula, or something, idk cause it was pretty long. Imo for being a really long post it seemed like there was thought put into it so it kind of made me irritated a bit when I saw people dogging on it and saying “i’m not reading all that” and shit, downvoting them without trying to discuss it, idk but I think it’s getting tiring seeing the same posts all the time and then when someone actually tries to make some variety everyone is major snob about it. It’s a horror sub, let people discuss horror tf? idk I don’t usually post on reddit but I feel like I need to say something

Taste Test

I was in a film club back in college and one of the more frequent/heated debates we’d have is which is better of the two?

Alien (1979) or The Thing (1982)

Which do you like more?

What are some great horror films that explore other worlds/dimensions.

Not necessarily alien movies, but any horror film that takes you to another dimension/world/planet etc.

I just finished Imaginary, and as awful as it was I’ve realised I’m a huge sucker for exploring the “other” side. Movies like Poltergeist, Pan’s Labyrinth, Viverium, No End House, The Backrooms. I just can’t get enough of that stuff.

Anything I should be checking out that really explores this trope in detail??

August Underground’s Mordum - Jesus Christ. (CONTENT WARNING)

I've been down a rabbit hole of disturbing horror movies this past few weeks when I decided to check out the August Underground trilogy. Essentially, it's home VHS recordings from a duo (soon quartet) of serial killers tormenting their victims, harassing locals, and doing everyday things. Not sure if the formula mixes up in 3/Penance as I haven't seen that one yet.

There's not much to say about the first one, acting is bearable and there's a couple gross scenes involving bodily fluids but it's effective in what it's trying to do. I'd say it's about 3 and a half out of 5.

But Mordum.. Mordum (especially the Maggot Cut) is WAY more violent. In this movie we get the inclusion of Crusty and her brother Maggot. Maggot acts more as a psychological tormentor and Maggot is a perverted necrophile.

There are a couple of scenes that are just downright harrowing. The first scene involves a woman being raped, and her boyfriend being forced to castrate himself. The second scene involves a woman being disemboweled where Maggot begins to penatrate the wound.

Then the infamous "bathtub scene"; Lord, I feel terrible talking about this. The quartet perform a home invasion where they hang the father, kill the young daughter offscreen, and hang the mother upside down, who gets her nipple mutilated and throat slit. While she's getting tortured, Maggot is shown.. desecrating the child's corpse in the worst way. That's all I'm willing to say.

There are a couple more bad scenes, more rape and at one point Maggot literally eats maggots off of a beheaded child's corpse.

So is the movie good? Absolutely not lol. The quality the first one had is gone wiyj the atrocious acting with the new characters. They try to include some incest affair drama between the killers which isn't super interesting. The scenes of sexual violence were not it either, yikes. Overall a 1 out of 5.

Anyways, what do you guys think about these movies?
