Recommend me a film to watch tonight.

Resurrecting this, as I want some inspiration.

 

Tonight I'd like to watch an expedition-gone-wrong horror. Think good looking young westerners looking for adventure, and it all going tits up when they discover it's a death cult or cornea theft or something. 

 

Think: Turistas, Borderland, The Ruins, The Temple, Midsommar, Hostel.

 

Being gory isn't essential, though that does come up often in these.

 

Any recommendations? I'm expecting something firmly in the 4-7/10 category.

How about:

The Rental or Get Out

 

Bit wider from your ideal themes:

mother!, The Witch, The Babadook, Hereditary

The Rental's the only one of those I haven't seen. The others don't quite nail the vibe of everything starting in a vibrant, optimistic holiday fashion.

 

Extra points if some dickhead drives a beach jeep with no doors on it.

Not strictly speaking a match for your request @schmojo, but have you watched "Time Trap" on Netflix yet?

 

Matches some of your criteria but not much of it. If you do go for it, go in blind. It's short and it's pretty good.

Deliverance

Cabin Fever

The Cabin in the Woods

 

If you've not seen these.

 

I have indeed seen those ones. And now I've seen The Rental too!

 

I reckon I'll probably got room for Time Trap this evening too...

Definitely watch Time Trap 

 

Due to never bailing on a film, I'm currently stuck in a Time Trap of my own.

 

I am using my piss break to unequivocally curse you, because it is awful.

Hang on now, he said think 4-7/10 and you recommend Get Out, a stone cold 10/10 film.

 

Now The Rental, that was pure garbage and fits that category. If you want to hate yourself even more, watch The Open House.

 

Also try The Visit and if you fancy an hour long good horror, try Host that came out last year.

:D Well it's certainly closer to the 4/10 end of your scale than the 7/10 end but honestly, I thought it was quite entertaining and ended so so far away from what I was expecting when I started to watch.

 

Not sure much of the plot would stand up to close scrutiny though.

Yeah I watched this due to some positive words about it on here - I thought it was utter garbage. More like a 2/10. I think it actually gets progressively worse as well.

What about Severance (2006, from the director of Triangle)? Eden Lake? Calibre?

Stuff i've not seen that's coming up in searches

The Invitation

A Perfect Getaway

Backcountry

Turistas (18% on rotten though...may it manage to be worse than time trap..)

 

What about one of my favourite late night films, The Edge? Survival not count?

These are all great suggestions. Alas I've seen them all.

 

Except Calibre. I'll look into that.

 

Timetrap was like a low budget, early 00s teen TV drama. Turistas, despite the 18%, is the perfect example of the trashy genre I love.

Partial match - very expedition gone wrong, not very good looking westerners - but I really enjoyed Come To Daddy. Plus it features Michael Smiley! Always a seal of approval. Very marmite film though if you look at the critical reception.

Have you seen Bone Tomahawk? It all goes tits (or rather bollocks) up in spectacularly gory fashion.
