10 Creepiest Psychological Horror Movies
2015’s Darling by Mickey Keating is a movie that’s deeply indebted to not just Roman Polanski’s Repulsion, but his entire alienating “Apartment Trilogy.” Deceptively simple in its premise, Darling is a black-and-white descent into madness that’s told across six stark chapters as a frail woman feels increasingly targeted after she takes on a caretaking gig.
The success of Darling has so much to do with Lauren Ashley Carter’s hypnotic and captivating performance in the lead role. Darling is light on answers, but every micro-gesture that Carter transmits conveys an economy of emotion.
