We all ( horror people ) know the big names, and most of the time we catch the controversial splashes ( Antichrist, which eh......). But we all have our favorite obscure discoveries.

[HorrorPack] Film Recommendations Thread II: Dawn of the Good Stuff
"But little did these posters suspect, the true horror and depravity to come in... Horror Recommendations Thread III: Bride of the Son of the Good Stuff!"Rose Bailey said:Horror should comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.
Perhaps you’d reply “But fear isn’t comfortable!” No, it isn’t. But it is inevitable. We all live with fear, to one degree or another. It’s a key motivation to keep on living. But society tells us to bottle it. To put on a brave face for the sake of others, or to hide our own problems because they’re not really important.
Horror lets us take that back. It comforts us by telling us that our fears are valid, that the objects of our terror aren’t fabrications of our cowardice or oversensitivity. It lets us explore the things we’re frightened by in a fantasy context, to experiment with responses to it.
Horror lets us reclaim the parts of our psyches that have been colonized by those who abuse, oppress, or exploit us. Horror lets us showcase our darkest struggles and tell our audiences “you are not alone.” Horror is a weapon of resistance against a world that can isolate and terrorize us.
So scare. But care.
