    Default Movies Suggestions to Watch on Stormy Night

    The sky looks dark and it looks like it's going to be a stormy night. I'm trying to look up a good movie, to watch, either horror or horror comedy. A thriller or a good, dark whodunit would also do the trick. No supernatural flicks though - bore the hell out of me. I'd consider TV series too. Any suggestions?

    Edit: I'm going to start adding the suggestions I received below so that anybody looking for a movie on a stormy night can see the the suggestions in one post - hopefully it will keep growing.

    It is an older one, but if you haven't seen it, you should watch Se7en. Definitely a dark movie, and has thriller and horror elements.

    If you haven't seen them yet; Shutter Island or Sin City. On TV, the original CSI: Crime Scene Investigation series.

    Perhaps a classic,, Key Largo with Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall.

    Kurasawa's Yojimbo and Sergio Leone's Fistful of Dollars with Clint Eastwood. They are the same movie, scene for scene. One is samarai movie with sword play and the other is a spaghetti western with guns.

    Yesssss. This is great stuff. I love Kurosawa. The Hidden Fortress and Star Wars are also basically the same plot. George Lucas borrowed heavily from Kurosawa for his own screen play. Fun to watch both together as well...

    I was amazed by new special effects coming out in one movie.

    The Ring
    The Phaser: A nice EDC with great throw; heat and runtime can be issues.

    I recently watched the first ten minutes of The Wolf of Wall Street. Truly bad cinema!

    Insidious
    The Ring (already mentioned by Phaserburn)
    The Grudge
    As Above, So Below

    Funny thing was i was able to watch Insidious 2 alone in the dark with my ThruNite(R) Mini TN30 CW in firefly mode. I only had to bump it up a couple times. It has a green tint but high CRI.

    The movie As Above, So Below inspired me to use my ThruNite flashlights in only firefly mode. The ThruNite Mini TN30 can go 98 days. I ordered a NW for EDC.
