5) Enemy


If you’ve ever heard of this movie, you’ve probably heard that “it has like the scariest ending ever, dude”. Apart from sarcasm, I honestly can’t think of a particular ending that’s scarier, but the film is so much more than a gimmick ending. Enemy is the most accurate and unique portrayal of the male psych that I’ve seen since David Lynch’s Eraserhead. That’s saying a lot. The doppelganger thing might be a little played out but this film succeeds a creepy atmosphere that sneaks up on you, and is intimate and personal in the worst way  [I mean the best way (you know what I mean)]. The score is awesome – very There will be Bloodesque, and all performances are on point. It’s Vilanueve’s direction that really shines here though, solidifying himself as the real deal after Incendies andPrisoners. This is the kind of a movie you can watch over and over again, you’ll catch something new every time. Have you heard about the end though? It’s like so scary.
