When it comes to horror movies, I'm usually the first in the group of friends to chicken out. Simply because I don't believe in plaguing my mind with crawling ghosts from TV screens or physical manifestations of blood-thirsty spirits. I feed my adrenaline seeking mind with other forms of thrillers - the psychological sub genre. Check out these horrors for Halloween!

Directed by: Nicholas Winding Refn
Pretty much not all that glitters is gold. The film follows the life of 16-year-old Jesse, an aspiring model who moves from Georgia to Los Angeles in hopes of making it big in the modelling world. Much to all the seasoned LA models’ dismay, Jesse makes it up the rung at lightning speed, owing it all to ‘true beauty’, as the film takes painful steps to exhibit. Visually, The Neon Demon is very aesthetically stunning with (you guessed it) neon playing a big part in the colour scheme.
If you’re not a fan of experiencing slow paced mind-boggling films that serve to confuse more than clarify, then it’s best you give this one a skip. It’s quite messed up.
