Today is October 31, 2021! Halloween is just around the corner and the dressed up kids and adults set out to either collect candy or start a spooky party. However, there is also something to be said for a cozy evening on the sofa during the cold and dark season. To get spooked this evening we have selected the best movies around technologies that are not only fascinating, but also can blow the circuits with fright!
The movie “Host” fits perfectly into our home office time. It’s about six friends who hire a psychic for a séance via Zoom during the pandemic lockdown. But then everything turns in a rather creepy direction – and we’re not talking about muted colleagues or bad internet, but an evil spirit that invades each of the Zoom participants. A creepy play with zeitgeist!
Stay Alive (2006)
A good horror movie often involves someone getting killed. But in “Stay Alive” it goes a slightly technological direction, because behind the cruel and mysterious murder seems to be a realistic 3D video game called “Stay Alive”.
From the setting, one quickly thinks of a science fiction movie. Moses Baxter, a scavenger in a futuristic city buys an old robot head and gives it to his lover, who installs it on an adroid body. But how could it be otherwise, the robot develops a will all its own and an incredible lust for murder.
The Stepford Wives (1975)
The Stepford Wives has gotten a few iterations now, but this 1975 psychological thriller is its own kind once again. Something isn’t right in this small town full of perfect housewives, and photographer Joanna Eberhart gets on the trail of it all, because she’s not comfortable with the whole thing.
