Why is this so well liked? All the technical aspects are great, but the story is obvious and the ending suddenly gets absurd to a comical level.
Admittedly I don't really find films scary, but I was certainly not on the edge of my seat at any point.

The production design was objectively extremely good, the director is basical an autist when it comes to historical accuracy of sets and materials.
>>
>>99844057
It's a a great puritan period piece character drama that shows how a family can crumble when isolated and confronted with and fear and paranoia.
Amazing production design, top notch performances across the entire cast and like you said every technical aspect was great, great cinematography, soundtrack, editing, basically flawless execution of every single filmmaking element.

I actually think that was one of the best Satan introductions in cinema history, the pause before and then the voice, the lines, the framing and the entire execution, captured the heinous but inviting feel perfectly.
>>
>>99845373
It has practically no jumpscares at all, relies on atmosphere completely. Think of it more like a paranoia family drama in a horror setting.
Just go ahead and watch it, don't read anything else about it

>>99845532
There are three main ways that movies can scare you
>they make you empathise with the characters and then put them in horrific situations
>they build a frightening atmosphere and tone
>they raise existential issues
Great horror films generally do all three.

Normally when people complain about a film not being scary though, they mean that it was not startling, really they mean that it was not exciting. That is what audiences have been conditioned to expect from a 'horror' film.

>>99844057
It's a 5/10 concept, a 3/10 script and 8/10 execution.

People are easily deceived (or perhaps pleased) by good execution.

It's like seeing a great singer singing a mediocre song.

>I haven't been scared by a movie since I was 12.
Being scared by a horror film is like being hypnotised. You have to want it to happen, think that it can happen, relax and let it happen.

If you're incapable of it, I doubt that you can get any other emotional response either from watching films and I pity you.
>>
>>99845876
Yes people experience emotions unlike you, autistic fucker, people also laugh at comedies. Incredible right? How sheltered are you?
>>
>>99845923
Laughing at comedies is one thing, actually being "scared" by a horror movie is another. Sure I find them thrilling and entertaining, but scared? Really? Was I just desensitized to it when I was younger or some shit?

I don't think the people being scared of movies here are adult men. It is June, after all... But if that's the case, I have to imagine that they haven't lived an active life filled with plenty of *actual* things to dread.

I didn't feel that at all though.
And what was with the elements of children growing up? The oldest boy was getting sexual urges whilst the oldest girl was going to be given to another family. None of that actually seemed relevant to any theme.

That's a nice way of dressing up shit taste.

>>99846193
>And what was with the elements of children growing up? The oldest boy was getting sexual urges
Several purposes for that
>Biblical Sin. The boy is no longer an innocent child as he is lusting after his sister. His sister is also tarred with sin by that.
>Feeds into guilt.
>Transformative horror- possessions, werewolves, vampires have long been metaphors for puberty and sexual awakening

>the oldest girl was going to be given to another family.
Plays into her feelings of alienation from her own family, and so from God (her concept of God and righteousness comes from her parents). Makes her feel unwanted by her family. This is all motivation for her straying to the devil at the end, to feel loved, to find a place. It also gives us the conciet that although her home life is miserable, she knows no other 'the devil you know', and fears losing it.
>>
>>99846173
>there is no nuance between words
I said scared, not fearful. I don't get frightened, or have anxiety, or get panicked. I've occasionally thougth "this is a bad situation", not "OH MY GOD, FUUUUUUCK". I'm not even being a pedant, there are very real differences between those two states of mind.

This movie is 9/10 for me. The story was "simple" but not everything should be GOT season 2 levels of complex geo-political maneuvering. Nobody is trying to trick you or bend your brain, it's just a high quality movie. The fact they stayed true to the accounts of the Salem trials and got the language of the time just right sealed it for me. It wasn't supposed to be scary either, just broodingly depressing. Imagine hitting puberty in a Puritan family in the woods with no friends, no society, nowhere to go. Then being haunted by the devil as the wilderness starts to fight back. Heavy.

Probably going to watch it again soon.

This was a movie that seemed to be made for intro to film students to write papers on.

I was entranced by the visuals and the design, but the narrative was bland and honestly, the father's voice was difficult to understand. I'd turn on captions, but I think that would honestly ruin the film since so much of it is the period piece.

>>99847951
It was a good slasher and a good movie. Also, what type of criticism is söy anyway? It's just some arbitrary buzzword you call a movie you didn't like to express how bad it was, but in the end you contribute nothing to the discussion. Why did you think it sucked?
>>
>>99847873
SF and horror define different aspects of a movie and aren't separate boxes. I'm not against categorization, but there is a problem with the way the industry does it. Defining something as horror, drama, action or comedy and defining it as SF, fantasy, or historical or something are another matter.

A lot of horror is also fantasy. SF can be horror, action, etc.

Do you even know how movies are made? That's exactly how they scam the audience into seeing shit. Half the scripts that they get are new stuff, then what they do is just take known names and characters and turn it into a remake or reboot or sequel (e.g. Jumanji). They use a familiar name and some vague homages to get you to think it's both a familiar product you should like while also praising it's originality when in fact it's got neither
And Evil Dead sucked, both the original and the remake.

Yes, I'd prefer it to be the story about her fall into insanity or at least open ending, that would be a kino - instead we got "it's devil's baby lol PRAISE THE SATAN".

You realize that "forest" was more or less unbroken woods from the east coast to the Mississippi, right?

The idea is that to those puritans the devil and witches weren't some ghost story they told around the campfire. It was a very real thing to them. A looming threat for a small community as far from civilization as you can get.

>>99849536
that doesn't mean she was actually floating in the goddamn woods, very pointless reveal.
>>
The ending is that the events of the film were caused by the Devil himself, plotting to create an uterrly inescapable and hopeless situation for the main character, so she wouldn't be able to refuse his offer.

What's exactly so terrible and comical about that?

Compared to the rest of the seemingly grounded film, it is very out of place and isn't startling or effective enough to pull the scene off.

You sound 12. It's not really a scary movie, that doesn't make it bad. It fills you with suspense and dread. It's about a paranoid religious family going crazy due to isolation, not a zombie flick with jump scares.

You mean, when being fucked with by the actual fucking devil.

I don't get why people attribute the family's doom to fear and paranoia when these are just byproducts of the devil's interference at best.

Because it was the father's pride that had them excommunicated from the town.
The devil is quite partial to that cardinal sin for obvious reasons.
Not to mention they all believed in predestination as doctrine. If anyone doesn't know thats sheer existential terror because it means your fate was already decided long before you had any opportunity to damn or save yourself and there's nothing you can do about it.

What do you consider as being "scared" though? You don't have to be sitting there vibrating with dread for a movie's creepy vibe to have been successful.

It's not waifu bait but it's a legitimately good film. Don't go expecting jigglefu in all her glory, she plays a puritan after all.
>>
>>99859880
she's good in it. but if you aren't interested in slow burn atmospheric horror she might not be enough to make you enjoy it
>>
>>99844057
It is all because of the goat talking.
You watch the movie thinking it is a typical "White patriarch and religion so evil on misogynist witch hunt" as it reinforces your expectations.
Then the goat speaks and most people have a brief moment of insanity themselves as they think "Wait wtf is going on here is this real is the girl going insane after being so persecuted?"
Now the viewer has to confront the possibility that evil is real and the fight against it is just.

There's no deep meanings or symbolism in this movie at all. It does what it says on the tin, "A New-England Folktale". That's it, you dweebs. An autist that had a bunch of historical knowledge about that time and place made a folk tale and then filmed it.

You're right anon. I'll never understand why this movie upsets the kids so much.

And it's the mother's jealousy that pushed the daughter away.

It's a movie where confronted to an actual evil, the rigorist religion the father wants to follow and faith make things worse for everyone. Kind of the opposite to The Exorcist where faith is used to fight evil.
>>
>>99845492
Apart from The Babadook and Get Out, none of the artsy movies are supposed to be horror. Green room ain't horror either.
The person who made that list is upset because he wasn't scared watching movies that aren't supposed to be scary.

How can you watch those movies and think it's horror.

And green room was actually an ok movie too, at least worth it to see Patrick Stewart saying nigger
