I love how the old man is all "I'm blind and there are monsters. Fuck it, let's do this."
Yeah, he was a trooper, and pretty sharp. I enjoyed it. I'm gonna be checking out The Cabin in the Woods next. I don't think I'm going to do the Black Sheep, livestock doesn't seem to put me on edge...

For horror roleplaying I recommend Chill (2nd edition is the best, unless you prefer more narrative systems, then 3rd edition), as it has some of the coolest creatures. The Mean Old Neighbor Lady and her Gamin (child creatures) are awesome, especially if you want kid PCs.
An old friend of mine used to be into Chill, but I've never played it, nor do I know what it's about. What's the story?

I’ve got two suggestions, both of them are Folk Horror stories.

The first one, Final Prayer(US)/The Borderlands(UK) is a nifty little found footage film. After reports of strange phenomena in a rural English church, a team is sent by the Vatican to see if what is happening qualifies as a miracle. At first sceptical, and mistrusted by the locals, they soon learn that they may have found something far darker and more potent than they could possibly have imagined. A slow burn, but the last three minutes is very Lovecraft, and very intense.
I'll second this nomination; Final Prayer was great, and makes for some wonderful CoC scenario fodder.

Speaking of... bhu bhu , any particular reason you haven't played 7th edition yet?

If you want fucked up, you HAVE to watch Martyrs (the French one, not the US remake). I tell people it is less a movie you watch then one you endure....

I also particularly enjoyed The VVitch.

I really wouldn't recommend that. It's well made but apart from that it's mostly just a chronicle of suffering. Before torture porn films became a thing it was legitimately shocking, now it's just...kind of pointless.

Unlike say the Hostel movies, Martyrs actually does have a storyline even if it is fucked up when you find out what it is. The violence in the Hostel movies is solely gratuitous torture porn....IMO as disturbing as it can be the violence in Martyrs does have a point.
