7 Movies About Luck, the Lottery, and Horror
Continue for the list of 7 horror movies that focus on luck and the lottery…
1. The Lottery (1996)
Yes, we’re starting this list with the short horror film entitled The Lottery by Shirley Jackson. The plot of the movie is simple. It occurs in a small fictional town in the US where they hold an annual “lottery.” In this game of chance, you wouldn’t want to win.
If you’re looking for a movie that involves modern-day kaszino jatekok or lottery, this isn’t the film for you. However, seeing as it’s only a short film, why not give it a try anyway? There’s a reason The Lottery became so influential to the renowned creator Stephen King.
2. Remains (2011)
Steven Nile’s graphic novel is the basis of the film. Although it doesn’t feature a magyarorszagi kaszino jatekok, this zombie horror flick occurs in a casino in Reno, Nevada, USA. Nevertheless, the movie has some kaszino jatekok including gambling and card games.
The movie focuses on a group of casino employees who survived a nuclear explosion. Remains is the film to watch if you’re looking for a zombie movie in a casino.

He meets his childhood sweetheart there and finds out she married the Baron. Now, the Baron is using her to force him to find a cure for his condition. Even though the film came out in 1961, the simple plot is easy to enjoy.
4. Spirits of the Dead (1969)
This movie is part of an anthology that depicts stories from horror writer Edgar Allan Poe. In particular, we want to focus on the second story, which is about an Austrian officer in 1800s Italy. It features a tense and long gambling scene with high stakes. Is luck on our protagonist’s side? Watch it to find out.
5. 13 Tzameti (2005)
Are you tired of watching movies that are more than 30 years old? Here’s a more recent film that you may want to consider. Georgian filmmaker Géla Babluani directed it. The title word “tzameti” means thirteen in Georgian, so its title is 13 Thirteen.
The 22-year-old protagonist, Sébastien, comes from a low-income family. While on a roofing job, he overhears a discussion about an incoming package that can make a household rich. He decides to intercept the package. Little does he know that he unwittingly became a player in a deadly game based on luck: Russian Roulette.
6. The Shining (1980)
If you haven’t seen this cult classic about an unlucky family, now is the time to watch it. Inspired by Stephen King’s novel, The Shining is one of Stanley Kubrick’s most famous films. Despite the “cursed” set, the movie collected several awards.
The story centers around Jack Torrance, his wife, Wendy, and his son, Danny. His writing career isn’t paying enough, so he becomes a winter caretaker at the Overlook Hotel in Colorado. As the family spends time in the hotel, something dark overcomes Jack. Meanwhile, Danny starts seeing disturbing visions of bloody hallways and twin girls.
7. Get Out (2017)
The last entry on this list is the horror-thriller masterpiece created by Jordan Peele, who is ironically famous for being one-half of the comedic duo Key and Peele. Here, he shows off his mastery in the suspenseful horror genre.
Get Out follows Chris, who goes to the country with his girlfriend, Rose, to meet her parents. The interracial couple experience a few strange encounters on the trip and at the family home. In the end, Chris realizes he’s not as lucky as he thought he’d been in love. He also finds out that Rose’s family had been plotting something dark all along.
