*Spoiler* - They'll likely make you glad to be in your current home! šŸ—”ļøšŸ˜±šŸŽ„


'The Servant' (1963) -

Hugo Barrett: "Get out of my way, you fucking bitch!"
'The Servant' is Joseph Losey at his finest.

It's a malevolent household tale of British Aristocrat Tony, hiring oddfellow Hugo as his 'man servant' only to see it quickly spiral into a foreboding mess. Losey brings his crowning atmospheric dread to create a rip roaringly captivating film that's full of twists, turns & displays of human atrocity.

Tip- If you liked Bong Joon-ho's 'Parasite' you'll love this. There's no way he wasn't influence by Tony & Hugo's gripping workplace relations.


'The Shining' (1980) -

Jack Torrance: ā€œGod, Iā€™d give anything for a drink.ā€
No isolation list would be complete without Stanley Kubrick's psychologically disturbing classic 'The Shining'.

Is Jack a good boy? Definitely not. Especially not after moving his family into an isolated hotel with a 'violent' past. Being isolated doesn't really agree with ol' 'here's Johnny' & as his sanity shakily tumbles his family begin to obscenely suffer.

It's horrific, mutlilayered & gosh golly if Jack Nicholson's demented bat grinning face & Shelly Duvall's expression of pure terror, don't get your pulse racing I don't know what will. Bone chilling goodness!


'10 Cloverfield Lane' (2016) -

Howard - "I'm sorry, but no one's looking for you."
More Psychological horror? '10 Cloverfield Lane' is up next & skillfully brings John Goodman's fists of terror into full glory.

After Michelle gets in a car accident she finds herself hunkering down with two men in Howard's over 'doomsday' prepared bunker. This is deliciousy evil, slow paced goodness & considers what you'd do if the chemical apocalypse is nigh but you face similar horror indoors.

Ultimately it begs the question, Would you eat John Goodman's Spaghetti?
