Spookiest Films of All Time

Claiming to be a fearless soul? We all instantaneously muster up the extensive valor to watch scary movies especially during the Halloween season. After all, it is real fun to spook your friends–including yourself, just admit it–to keep up with the chilling atmosphere. 

Armed with a resourceful (or otherwise) costume and a bag of mouthwatering goodies from your eventful trick or treat, let’s see if you can bare these frightening films alone or with peers during Halloween night! 

The Shining is a 1980 adaptation of Stephen King’s 1977 illustrious horror novel of the same name. It focuses on a determined writer and recovering alcoholic who works as a custodian at a historic hotel during the off season. He settles in with his wife and son who is besieged by psychic visions. As his son’s premonitions become more difficult, he realizes the hotel’s horrifying past and starts turning into a murderous maniac bound to torment his loved ones. The film epitomizes sublime fragments of jump scare: the captivating visuals and musical scoring, the improvisation of the memorable and startling quote: “Here’s Johnny!”, and the eerie young twin sisters on the corridor lingered in most people’s nightmares and significantly impressed them. 

The Shining is hailed by critics, and has become a core of today’s pop culture. Mathematicians at London’s King’s College utilized statistical figuring in a research mandated by Sky Movies to determine that The Shining was the “perfect scary movie” because of its precise harmony of different aspects such as impact, suspense, and gore. It stars the infamous method actor Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall, and Danny Lloyd. The creepy movie trailer may be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S014oGZiSdI. Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 horror film, “The Shining” is highly regarded to be one the scariest horror films of all time.

The Ring is a 1998 Japanese paranormal and mind-altering horror film. Adapted from the 1991 novel of the same name by Koji Suzuki, as well as the Japanese folk tale Banchō Sarayashiki, a Japanese myth of fragmented faith and vows resulting to a desolate fate, the movie centers on a reporter who probes the mystery behind a cursed videotape that kills the watcher 7 days after viewing it. The movie became the highest grossing horror film in Japan, was critically praised by reviewers, and garnered immense following in the West. The unanticipated twist in the story and the never-ending goosebumps caused by “Sadako”, the vengeful ghost with her long straight black hair covering her face and dirty long white dress while crawling out of the static television screen and that spooky phone call with the screeching sound after watching the videotape paved its status as one of the most petrifying films of all time. It generated several follow-ups and started a trend of Western reprises, beginning with the 2002 American version.

Get Out is a 2017 American horror film written and directed by comedian Jordan Peele in his directorial debut. It revolves on an African-American photographer who unravels a troubling secret when he meets the “liberal” family of his Caucasian girlfriend. It stars the remarkable British actor Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, and Catherine Keener. The movie is often considered as one of the greatest horror thrillers of modern American cinema. It is a brilliant allegory on racism and is a political satire on post-Obama America. It successfully triggered the trend of smart horror films (cue John Krasinski’s “A Quiet Place”) with low-key but poignant and frightening narratives with a small budget that can still make you think. It instills dread on Hollywood that loves remakes and recycled superheroes. At the 2018 Academy Awards, Get Out won the celebrated Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. As Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian cleverly summarized: “[Get Out] is a mainstream feature film bold enough, tactless enough, irresponsible enough to invoke race outside the solemn confines of documentary…The point is that Get Out takes pessimism and converts it into defiance – and laughs.” The terrifying movie trailer may be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DzfpyUB60YY&t=1s.Get Out is a 2017 American horror film often considered as one of the greatest horror thrillers of modern American cinema.

How LG is shaping the kitchen of the future 

 
Food is a precursor for bonding in the Philippines. But in an age of fast-paced lifestyles and minute meals, the act of preparing and enjoying good, home-cooked meals with a loved one has become a precious, if rare, moment.
 
Technology, however, is slowly helping us reimagine the kitchen as the center of the home, where family and friends typically congregate, and meals are cooked and shared. A new generation of smart appliances are transforming life in the kitchen and reshaping expectations about kitchen staples like the refrigerator and oven. With these new intuitive, user-friendly appliances, we find ourselves back in the kitchen, able to cook better, healthier meals but with half the cooking time and labor.
 

 LG Electronics is focusing on modern products that are slowly shaping the kitchen of the future, one where preparation time is reduced, efficiency is improved, error is minimized and energy usage optimized. And one where smart fridges, dishwashers and ovens “communicate” with one another.
 
We are now entering the moment of the connected kitchen. LG’s kitchen of the future will host a number of intelligent appliances designed to work in close cooperation with one another using the LG SmartThinQ artificial intelligence platform.
 

SmartThinQ in the kitchen is not yet fully optimized in the Philippines, but other markets reveal how this new technology is making appliances more intuitive than ever and lets you control just about everything in your home from your smartphone, starting with the new LG InstaView ThinQ refrigerator.
 
This refrigerator is the next step in smart home evolution. A massive glass screen lets you manage mealtimes,create a shopping a list, and even post expiration dates of your food. It also allows you tocheck the contents of your fridge at a glance—just tap the screen twice to see everything inside, and plan your meals better without even having to open your fridge (saving energy in the process). It can even suggest recipes based on the ingredients you currently have on hand.
 

With the SmartThinQ app, you can see a wide-angle view of the inside of your fridge wherever you are. So next time you’re out grocery shopping, you won’t have to think if you need to broccoli for dinner. The app also allows you to connect with other smart LG kitchen appliances. For example, when you look up a recipe, your LG InstaView ThinQ can set the smart LG oven to automatically preheat to the correct temperature, allowing you to get dinner on the table faster, not to mention giving you more time to enjoy a meal with your loved ones
 
The kitchen has always had technology at its heart—and with LG’s intelligent, consumer-centric appliances, it’s advancing in ways you’ve never imagined. Today’s recipe for success is invention, integration and innovation—and LG is definitely serving all of these in heaps.

SAMSUNG Galaxy Note9 enables true productivity on-the-go

The powerful smartphone expands the possibilities with its upgraded core performance features
In today’s fast-paced technology-driven world, people demand only the best devices and innovations to make life easier. They continuously look for ways to improve the way they work and operate in order to do more and be more. They let nothing get in the way of realizing their goals and passions.

The Samsung Galaxy Note9 is built for these purposes. With its upgraded core performance features designed for maximum productivity, the powerhouse smartphone delivers unparalleled power, speed, and capacity. It allows users to power through anything and get the most out of everything.

Stay connected all day 

Productive individuals know how to maximize even the smallest time frames for daily tasks, whether for work or leisure. A lot can happen for the busy bee in the span of five minutes—reply to an email, check an update on an ongoing project, and send a quick good-morning message to a loved one. 

With this in mind, Samsung engineered the Galaxy Note9’s 4,000 mAh battery to last all day. Keeping on-the-go users powered and connected without any interruptions, the Galaxy Note9’s standout battery eliminates the need to carry power banks or look frantically for an outlet all the time. With the brand’s latest flagship smartphone, a full charge is all that one needs to tackle a busy day ahead. When the need arises, loading up the Galaxy Note9 is made simple with fast wireless charging capabilities.

Operate on ultimate performance

Today’s working environment is highly dynamic and unpredictable. To answer work and personal demands at any given moment, some users run email, document editing, and social media applications all at the same time. 
Multitasking isn’t an issue with the Galaxy Note9’s 6GB RAM and 10 nanometer Application Processor. The robust hardware makes sure that the smartphone delivers unstoppable and uninterrupted performance by allowing seamless switching between applications, faster downloading speeds, and smoother streaming experiences.

Have everything right at your fingertips 

Alongside all-day power and efficiency, people also prefer carrying as many important files as they can on their devices. It is satisfying to be able to pull out a business presentation, a detailed report, or photos from a recent trip wherever and whenever they need to, without any delay or difficulty. The Galaxy Note9 answers this need with its pioneering 128GB base storage and a limited-edition 512GB variant. Challenging the limits for portable memory, both units support microSD cards up to 512GB, allowing users to carry as much as 1TB of data in a single device. The Galaxy Note9 also utilizes Samsung Knox, the company’s mobile security platform, to keep documents, and large files secure anytime, anywhere.
