    Hey guys,

    I'm aware that there are probably hundreds of threads like this but I'm really at a loss as to which films to watch lately. I just graduated from school and now I've still got the entire August and first three weeks of September off before I start attending University and right now I'm bored as hell. I'm a huge fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe but I've watched all of the films of Phase 1 and 2 now, even the Agent Carter and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. series.
    I also like Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy but I've already watched it countless times. Are there any other DC films you would recommend?
    Additionally, as much as I hesitate to admit this I like these cheap Hollywood comedies like Hangover or Scary Movie. Their humour is dumb, insanely simple and, of course, comercially orientated, but for some reason I still like them, even though I'm not really in the mood for any comedies lately but still, can you tell me any good ones?
    Lastly, and this is what interests me the most right now honestly, I'm a fan of the mystery/thriller or horror genre. The Halloween, Nightmare on Elm Street series and maybe even Friday the 13th. are just my thing as well as Paranormal Activity. I'd really like to watch a good horror film again (well, I watched Unfriended last week, that's why I put so much emphasis on 'good horror film', god that really was terrible) but I'm kinda picky to be honest....I really only like films that are creepy to watch but not over the top, making me shit my pants scary and I hate jump scares (which means Insidious wouldn't be too great for me? Read about this one pretty often, as well as Conjuring).
    I hope you don't mind this wall of text I just produced here and yeah, I'd really appreciate if you could help me on this...

    Sadly, not Canada.
    There's a great horror movie called Magic Mike. I was screaming through it the entire time it played.

    I know they're old, but the Austin Powers films are hilarious.

    Some people say The Spy Who Shagged Me is the best one of them.

    'It Follows' is probably the only recent horror movie I'd class as good - it doesn't rely on cheap jump scares, and has a pretty creepy overall vibe going for it.

    Also, with Eli Roth's 'Green Inferno' finally getting a theatrical release in the next month or so, now's as good a time as any to watch 'Cannibal Holocaust' to give yourself an education in the genre of Italian exploitation movies that inspired it. I watched it again fairly recently, expecting to find it kind of tame by todays standards, but found it's still kind of nauseating in parts. It's also fairly responsible for the cinema verité style that so many recent horror movies (since Blair Witch Project) adopt so effectively.

    @duwen I'm definitely going to make a note about It Follows and Cannibal Holocaust!
    You said that It Follows is the only 'recent' horror movie you'd class as good, I'm also interested in older ones ;)

    Ohhh yeah, I need to watch this one again, such a masterpiece :wub:.
    Lots of friends of mine keep trying to get me to watch the Saw series but I think those films are just really boring, though I gotta admit I only watched the first one and even that one only halfway through. I think that series is so overrated :S

    I've seen it all after watching them (in that order too believe it or not) when it comes down to absolute 'horror'
    Oh and I didn't see that raep coming either while watching and had to stop watching it for a bit and then go back to it... yeah
