“It Follows” (2014)
The scariest horror moments aren’t marked by a sudden pop-up or loud blast of music — they’re marked by a sustained sense of sinking fear. That’s probably the best way to describe how you’ll feel after watching this It follows.
The plot revolves around a contagious curse, but the premise is truly unique: the curse, an entity that takes various human forms and slowly follows you wherever you go, is passed on through sexual intercourse (say a horrific sexually transmitted disease ). We won’t give too much away, but the image of a man standing naked on a suburban rooftop will stick in your mind.

The fact that residents and local police consider Hubie the town’s troublemaker makes it that much harder to get anyone to heed his warnings. Adam Sandler’s unbeatable comedic timing, even given the mysterious murders and terrifying setting, is something to bear in mind.
‘Fear Street’ Trilogy (2021)
That street of fear Series based on RL Stines The book series of the same name includes three films about a group of teenagers who work to break a curse that has plagued their small town of Shadyside, Ohio for three hundred years.

‘Velvet Buzzsaw’ (2019)
Velvet circular saw is the most colorful (literally) of them all. It’s a psychological thriller – but artful. Male or female (Jake Gyllenhaal) realizes his newfound art is a little too lifelike.
