Got Spooked at Taking You Forward

Got Spooked at Taking You Forward | FUN @ TYFINC

The Ring, Shutter, Evil Dead. Who does not love horror movies? Whether it’s gory, mind-boggling, or sleep-depriving, a good number of us love to watch a scary flick every now and then. It’s for this very reason that Got Spooked was launched. It’s a nod to the scariest films of all time and the people in this call center in Cebu who dare watch them.

As part of our yearly Halloween event, everyone here at Taking You Forward was encouraged to share the movie that they think is the spookiest, scariest, and the most disturbing via the company’s Facebook Fan Page. After two weeks, seven people came forward with their flicks of ghouls and blood, which were compiled and used for the movie marathon held last October 31.

Below are clips of the movies that our SMEs or Scary Movie Enthusiasts shared:

    1. The Ring by Fred Gratz

    Easily the favorite by a lot of people, The Ring is the western or American version of the Japanese horror hit: Ring or Ringu. The story revolves around a cursed tape, which promises death seven days after watching the video in the hands of Samara. The ghost coming out of the well and crawling out from the TV has become its signature, as everyone would always refer to this when this movie is mentioned.

    2. Ju-on by Dane Seno

    Ju-on is another go-to movie if you are looking for something terrifyingly good. Also an original Japanese movie, this has spawned the creation of an American version. The entire franchise revolves around the house, which was cursed after the gruesome murders that took place in it. The characters of Kayako and Toshio are deeply engraved in pop culture history.

    3. Drag Me to Hell by Shaniya Mandangan

    This movie starts out as a mundane scene with the heroine struggling to get that coveted promotion. Moments later, her life was about to take a far more vicious turn as she caught the ire of a witch, whose loan application she turned down. If you easily gross out, watching this can be a challenge as its got scenes that can make you cringe.

    4. Art of the Devil 2 by Herbert Kikoy

    The Thais seem to be a master of disturbing the human imagination as their cinematographers and writers never fail to present us with films can make even the manliest of men scream. Art of the Devil’s plot is layered by revenge and black magic, peppered by both inter and intrapersonal conflict that will leave you guessing till the very end.

    5. Evil Dead by Ramy Degulacion

    The biggest scare element of this movie is probably all the blood and gore that is in it, which is becoming more of a trend in many American scary films. It talks about five friends spending their vacation in a solitary cabin. Their staycation was not that fun as people kept getting possessed and someone either ends up slashed or buried. Not a good teambuilding activity for anyone with Cebu jobs.

    6. Phobia 2 by Jacqueling Jaque

    Another Thai masterpiece, Phobia 2 or Ha Phraeng, is made up of five unrelated stories of ghosts, karma, and the human character. Although the first four tales are horrific, the last one provided the much needed comic relief without robbing the viewers of the scary experience.

With the screams that these films brought from those who watched the movie marathon, it’s safe to say that our resident SMEs know their stuff. Until next Halloween gang!
