Evil Dead 2.
It currently sits at 100% on Rotten Tomatoes. Some have even called it a “classic horror masterpiece.”
It takes place in a future where there is an annual contest called The Long Walk. Participants must maintain a speed of four miles per hour. Fall below that speed, and you are given a warning. Receive three warnings, and you are shot dead.
When this movie came out, it became a cultural phenomenon and ushered in the trend of Japanese horror remakes overtaking cinemas.
I oftentimes found myself hiding in a closet in pitch blackness hyperventilating just as much as the character on the screen. This game is truly scary.
What unfolds on the screen is a veritable fever dream of hallucinogenic imagery and surrealism. There are a few traditional scares contained within, but what I find so terrifying about the movie is its nightmarish nature.
