The Best New Movies to Give You Sleepless Nights

Whilst mainstream action flicks like Justice League are so boring that they could instantly send us to sleep, there are plenty more spooky movies out there if you are looking to scare yourself into a long and sleepless night.

 

 

We all know that Stephen King is one of the best horror writers. And so it was great to see that the movie adaptation of his It novel did a pretty good job of giving us some disturbing thoughts late at night. Thanks to the reappearance of a particularly spooky clown, and some awesome hallucinatory movie-making, it’s clear that It is one of 2017’s best horror movies so far.

 

The Alien franchise is another failsafe way to give yourself some nightmares. Whilst there were some critics who said that this year’s Alien Covenant movie was a bit patchy, it still managed to provide plenty of jump-scares and it was definitely a lot more unpleasant than Prometheus!

 

 

Surely there’s nothing more scary than a sinister doll? That seems to have been the thinking behind the Annabelle: Creation movie that served up plenty of horror movie cliches, but still somehow managed to give us all a fairly unsettled feeling before going to bed.

 

 

If all of these movies sound a little bit tame, then we should definitely point you in the direction of the It Comes at Night film. This seriously disturbing movie is set in a mysterious apocalyptic future and it’s the slow and claustrophobic feel of the film that really gets under your skin as various characters find themselves doing unspeakable things to each other.

 

 

It’s good to find that there are a few film-makers out there who are willing to side-step the horror movie cliches to really give us some sleepless nights. With anybody being able to quickly order in a new bed for the next day from a company like Bedstar, it’s obvious that we are all in danger of getting a little too comfortable, and so it’s great to see how the Trey Edward Shults-directed It Comes at Night should be able to give us some quality nightmares.

 

And if It Comes at Night doesn’t do the trick, then think about how Gerald’s Game could show that even a bed can provide a good place to experience some top-quality horror. This movie was another Stephen King adaptation that saw a women being handcuffed to a bed with some pretty unpleasant consequences – definitely something to think about before you close your eyes at night!
