The ‘found footage’ doesn’t have a moment of fullness, certainly due to the erosion of the formula, but from time to time proposals come up that subtly extract the horror inherent in what seems real. This Korean-Thai co-production is based on supposed footage of a group of documentary filmmakers aiming to tell the story of shamanism, but things go awry when a young woman is possessed by an unexpected entity. The “folk terror” slowly burns with trance, sorcery, sacrilege, pretensions and all kinds of petty fears from Southeast Asia. Available on Movistar Plus +.Texas Chainsaw Massacre by David Blue Garcia
The ninth installment of the Texas Butchers saga, without comparing it to the founding title created by Toby Hopper in 1974, but still containing interesting elements. After sequels, prequels, “reboots”, and 3D films, this David Bleu Garcia film based on a plot by Fede Alvarez – director of the remake of Infernal Possession – repeats the plot of the first part, as four young Leatherfaces face off. Chainsaw terror is presented. Available in Netflix.“Eyes of Fire” by Keith Thomas
In the first half of the 1980s, at the height of Stephen King’s film fever, Eyes of Fire was one of his adapted novels. This year Blumhouse revitalized a new version in which Ryan Kiera Armstrong replaces the original Drew Barrymore, a girl with devastating kinetic power that pleases King. More complex in every way, the remake has the allure of a soundtrack composed and performed by John Carpenter, Cody Carpenter, and Daniel Davis.

A bloody and crazy terror masquerade has the unmistakably frenetic hallmark of De la Iglesia. In it, five young Spanish tourists arrive in Venice in the middle of the carnival, but their cravings for partying and drunkenness will sink in when a madman dressed as the clown Rigoletto starts making their lives impossible (well deservedly). The first title from the new horror series The Fear Collection, promoted by The Day of the Beast director’s production company. Available on Prime Video.Scream Directed by Matt Bettenelli Olbin and Tyler Gillette
Another frustrating, unattainable horrific saga, such as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre saga and Halloween Night. Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson’s creation was a satirical reversal of “slasher,” and this fifth episode continues along the same lines. 25 years after the events of the first movie, the individual returns to his old ways with the knife and the Ghostface mask. The mixture of horror and black comedy, with the addition of original performers, still works. Available on Prime Video.“X” by Ti West
Another luxury company, A24, is behind this horror movie with a porn background. Its heroes are shooting an X-movie in rural Texas in 1979. They don’t see Leatherface’s butchers, but the local old people aren’t any kinder. “Slasher” and “porn-gore” introduced one of the most famous filmmakers of this genre in recent times, Ti West, author of “The House of the Devil”, “The Guest” and an episode of “V/H/S”.
