There are so many great movies out there, but when I decided to make this list, I knew there was only one more that would fill my number one slot and throughout the process of making the list, that number one pick never changed.
1. American Mary (2012)
Yes, my top choice also features the amazingly talented Katharine Isabelle.
I found this move either at the end of 2015 or just the beginning of 2016, but once I saw it, it bumped right up my list to favorite horror movies ever. Not just underrated, but IN GENERAL.
It stars Katharine Isabelle and is the revenge movie to end all revenge movies. It is wonderfully twisted and fucked up in all the right ways, like every horror movie should be.
Isabelle plays the role of a medical student, who is going through financial problems, but determined to succeed in her chosen profession.
Desperate for money to pay her bills, she decides to seek work as a stripper, but because she is a medical student, she is instead offered $5000 to save a man’s life, after being beaten.
Needing the money, she does so, but is immediately struck with disgust returns home, in complete panic over the ordeal.
She is offered quite a bit more money to perform a surgery, which would involve removing a girl’s nipples and labia, to appear more like a human doll. She offered $10,000 and an extra $2,000 to just show up.
Despite the way she felt at the strip club, she agrees and successfully performs the surgery.
Some time passes and during her residency, she is invited to a party, where she gets drugged and sexually assaulted at by her former teacher.
Unable to cope with the attack, she drops out of medical school and goes back to the strip club, where she pays workers to bring her attacker to her.
She starts working at the strip club and starts working full time as a surgeon for consensual body modification, all while continuing to torture her attacker on the side.
This movie takes a new spin on revenge story and as I have said before in my number two pick, Katharine Isabelle is hypnotic on the screen and when she is acting, your eyes stay on her and only her.
What I have explained is only part of the plot and I will not give the rest away, because the element of surprise needs to be there if you intend to watch this.
It is written and directed by the Soska sisters who had a cameo in the film, shown above.
I have never fallen in love with a horror movie so quickly before and I urge you all to give it a chance, because not a lot of people have heard of this movie and it is such a visual masterpiece.
I will say this though, the climax and ending happens a bit fast and because of that, it does end a little underwhelming, which is a shame, because everything else is just so flawless and absolutely chilling.
I repeat, absolutely chilling.
Watch the trailer and see for yourself. If you are as intrigued as I was, you will find a way to see this movie.
Description: You run into your ex-boyfriend while at a party with your current one and during the encounter are reminded of all the ways he still controls you. You aren’t entirely surprised to find yourself on your knees in the bathroom with him in front of you minutes later.
A/N: @avveh prepare to die. I think I listened to The Weeknd the entire time I wrote this haha. Some of the songs were played over 100 times just during the time I wrote this, particularly “Shameless”, “Earned It”, and “Often”.
The Hottest Day of the Year//Finn Wolfhard x Reader
It was the hottest it had been all summer, and you and Finn were outside in your pool. Millie and Gaten were on their way, and Caleb and Noah were five minutes down the road. Since your parents were out of town they had agreed to let you have everyone over for a couple of days, just to catch up and have fun. Since Finn had been filming IT and you had been involved in various photo shoots and interviews for your upcoming movie, there hadn’t really been a chance to meet up with each other.
Your phone started ringing so you climbed out of the pool and went to answer it. It was Caleb.
“Hey.” You said when picking up the phone “Hey, we’re literally just coming round the corner right now.” “Okay, I’ll come and open the gates.” “Alright. See you soon.”
Despite being soaked you ran through your house, out of your front door, and down your driveway to open the gates. After typing in the pin, the metal gates automatically opened. Finn came out behind you, soaking wet too. About a second after, Caleb’s Range Rover pulled in with his dad behind the wheel. Noah and he both got out of the back with their bags. Noah looked even taller the last time you saw him if that was even physically possible.
“Hey guys,” Noah said with a smile,“I can’t believe how hot it is.” “Of course it’s hot,” Smirked Caleb, “I’m here.” “Oh yeah, I’m sure that’s the reason.” Finn rolled his eyes earning him a smack on the shoulder from Caleb and a laugh from Noah. You, however, was distracted as Gaten and Millie had arrived. As soon as Millie’s feet hit the ground she launched herself at you, dropping her bag on the floor without a care in the world. “Y/N!” She squealed “Millieeeeee!” You giggled and hugged her back having missed her for so long. Gaten was congratulating Finn on his work on IT.
After greeting each other you headed inside. After everyone had put their bags down and changed into swimwear, you went out into the hot afternoon sun. The cool water was as inviting as ever, not that you had long to admire it. Gaten had come up behind you and pushed you in. As you hit the water you felt instant relief since it was so cold, but that was short lived because as soon as you were up you reached over the edge and pulled Gaten in. Soon, everyone was in the pool, splashing each other, jumping on each other’s backs and getting pushed off. It was great to be with everyone again.
Later on that afternoon… It had been a couple of hours since everyone had arrived. Since then you and Noah had made fresh lemonade. All of the boys were sat on the sun loungers in the shade while you and Millie had your feet in the water, your sunglasses on and cold drinks in your hands. You weren’t giving in to the heat so quickly.
“So,” Millie said in a quiet voice, “Are you going to tell Finn?” Your heart leaped in your chest. “Te-tell him what?” You try your hardest to sound indifferent, but that wasn’t happening “Oh come on Y/N!” She whisper-shouted, “I’ve seen the way you look at him! You haven’t been doing a wonderful job of hiding it!” “I haven’t?” “Most definitely not, no.” “Oh.” “Anyway, I think you should tell him. Especially since you live so close to him. At least you wouldn’t have to deal with only seeing each other every so often.” She had a point. You did and always had lived close to Finn, which was quite fitting the more you thought about it. “I’ll see how I go Millie. I might tell him.” “I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.”
It was dark outside by this point so the decision was made to go inside. You had ordered pizza and were now eating it upstairs in the movie room. After an argument about what to watch, Finn had stood up, snatched the remote out of Gaten’s hand and had put a film on just to shut everyone up. You were more than happy with his choice as it happened to be one of your favorites. Millie had been extremely sly and made sure that you and Finn were the only two left without a seat on the sofa. Without any discussion you had both sat down on one of the cuddle chairs together, pulling the blanket off of Caleb before doing so as he’d stolen the seat you wanted. You certainly didn’t have a problem with this, and it didn’t seem as though Finn did either.
About halfway through the movie, you decided to go down and get a drink. After announcing this, everyone decided that they wanted one too, so you were left with tea duty. After filling the kettle and switching it on you heard footsteps running down the stairs. It was Finn.
“I came down to see if you needed any help.” “Thanks,” You smiled, “Apparently I’m the maid tonight.” Finn laughed and went over to the fridge to get the milk out while you poured in the water. You were very, very conscious of his presence. “You know Y/N,” he said, “I saw the trailer for your new movie yesterday. I literally cannot wait to see it.” “I can’t wait to see IT! I’ve already preordered tickets.” You looked up at Finn and saw him blush, causing you to smirk.
As carefully as you could you took the tea upstairs. As there were six of you, you and Finn had to make two trips, and by the time you had sat back down together, you had missed the best part of the film. Once it was finished you all decided to watch another one, but you didn’t last long. The day had made its mark on you, and without hesitation, you fell asleep next to Finn.
You woke up to the feeling of someone’s arm around you. Slowly, you opened your eyes and saw Finn’s sleeping face right opposite yours. His arm was holding carelessly onto your waist and his other was resting on your leg that was slung over his. To put it lightly, you were tangled. And it made your heart skip a beat. Or two. You didn’t want to move in case you woke him. In all honesty, you didn’t really know what to do. Finn decided for you. He opened his eyes and smiled. You thought you were going to go into cardiac arrest.
“Morning.” He whispered “Morning.”
That was it. You were done waiting. Not caring about the others in the room, you kissed him lightly on the lips. When you parted you rested your forehead against his, smiling the entire time. It was so utterly perfect. Well, it would have been if it wasn’t for Noah and Millie shrieking and taking a picture of the two of you.
“I SHIP THIS SO MUCH YOU HAVE NO IDEA!” Noah literally shouted this so loudly that it woke Gaten and Caleb up.
You loved every single person in that room with all of your heart, especially Finn.

“This, you know, what you’re feeling now, it gets multiplied by 10 when you’re 34 and you’re not the hot young thing anymore. But that’s not you. You don’t have to worry about that yet.” 1 Night (2017)
