I'm totally a big fan of psychological thrillers, and there are two coming out this summer that, although some would call them horror movies, totally fit the bill. The first is based on a short story by Stephen King, called 1408. It reminds me a lot of Silent Hill 4: The Room, which was a much better concept than it was a game, but this movie seems to apply the concept much more efficiently. Have a look for yourself:

The next one gets a little more realistic, as strange is that may be to hear about a horror movie. It's Rob Zombie's take on the Halloween franchise, and more specifically, his perception of Michael Myers, who is the only popular horror movie character that could be real. He's just a guy gone insane - a complete psychological anomaly, and I totally dig it:

So what do you think? Both movies are set for release this summer, which is looking to be a hawt movie season (Rush Hour 3, anyone?). If you all have any other good ones to suggest, do tell. =)

I want a good psychological film that doesn't ruin itself with massive foreshadowing :(

I hate going to these movies and picking up the entire plot in the first 20 minutes. So do my friends sometimes when I mutter something and it happens -_-

the best story that could be turned into a horror movie would be none other than...

Alice in Wonderland

and oddly enough, its going to be, i think its going to be called Phantasmagoria or something like that, and its being directed by Marilyn Manson
