A week of ghosts, children, and the eating of flesh! I watched POSSUM, CHILD’S PLAY, CELIA, MOTHER!, SINISTER, 0.0 MHZ, BLOOD QUANTUM, THE TAKING OF DEBORAH LOGAN, and RAW.
In which I score the first 8 films of my list on their scaryness and also gender stuff! Films include ROSEMARY’S BABY, The Aster Duo, THE WOLF HOUSE, and KINGDOM OF THE SPIDERS.
Both of these movies are aesthetically beautiful and expertly written and directed. But what is with all these keening women?
Autumn is upon us! Time for terror.
Insightful, hilarious, and devastating, these #LadyHorror movies will not disappoint. Recent faves include well-known cult classic JENNIFER’S BODY, send-ups of the revenge thriller PREVENGE and PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN, plus a few surprises.
This unsettling paranormal/psychological scare also has tiny model houses and the creepiest child!
The moral of this genre-defining scare: “You are already lost in the woods.” Terrifying.
TWO holiday scares in a row? It’s my Christmas gift to you. Hint: if you haven’t seen this classic slasher yet, now’s the perfect time!
My #17 scare of 2020 was a surprise to me! Hint: it’s got a creepy house and a killer cast.
Sometimes a great scary movie doesn’t need to be scary at all. Coming in at #18 is a mildly spooky but very stylish classic.
