Well this is a lame first thread but I can't sleep and am really bored so i'm looking for some good movie ideas lol.

I'm only looking for more recently made films, at least after the year 2000.

The last week i've been watching movies that are psychological thrillers/horror movies.
The three i've seen this week are A perfect getaway, House Hunting, and Enter Nowhere.

I like the vacation horror movies like A Perefect Getaway so any thing similar would be great.

House Hunting and Enter Nowhere are both psychological thrillers where groups of people are stuck in houses/cabins in the woods and every time they leave they end up right back to the house. I don't know, I thought it was a pretty interesting concept lol.

A Perfect Getaway

Enter Nowhere

House Hunting

Any suggestions similar to those three would be great because I just recently watched them and am still in the mood to watch similar movies. I also recommend watching them if you enjoy those types of movies.


Some other pschological thrillers i enjoyed:


The Game * * * * *
Donnie Darko * * * * *
Blood River * * * *
Momento * * * *
The Experiment * * * *
Exam * * * *
Triangle * * *
Gone * * *


Any suggestions would be much appreciated and I apologize for hitting enter to early and posting nothing in this thread at first.

I'd suggest ;

dude where's my car
dude where's my car 2
the trueman show
braveheart
the tetleys tea commercials

and my favourite

escape from new york

in lieu of all the modern movies, you can't go wrong with these classics.

failing that, check out anything with rodney dangerfield. that man could act.

cheers!

If you want a psychological thriller, try to find Intensity (1997). You'll probably have to buy a copy of it, but it's worth it.

Have you tried Anime? Perfect Blue (1998). Black Swan was influenced by this. It's has Lynchian head trip surrealism, Cronenberg body horror and Argento splatter. Get it and watch it before Aronofsky remakes it!

Mentioning David Lynch, Inland Empire (2006) is the go since you require post 2000 movies. This has a spellbinding, otherworldly atmosphere. Full of subconscious symbolism with visions, nightmares, omens... ,Lynchy at his best.

Since this is Christmas, there is a fantastic BBC series called "A Ghost Story for Christmas" from 1976. Not recent like you asked, but is perfect for a bit of psychological horror and mystery during the holidays. The best episode is by far "The Signalman".

Hope I have been helpful.

Lots of good suggestions. Mine would be Eden Lake ( Refusing to let anything spoil their romantic weekend break, a young couple confront a gang of loutish youths with terrifyingly brutal consequences) and Straightheads (a 2007 British thriller film which follows a couple who are seeking revenge against a group of men who brutally attacked them. It is written and directed by Dan Reed, who made his directorial début and stars Gillian Anderson with a brilliant dark performance).

Peeping Tom

Made in 1960 but this film was ground breaking in it's day. Highly recommended:-
