I thoroughly enjoyed my foray into the “Big 4!” But also, I have notes.
Not only does THE DESCENT have every fantastic, creepy, disgusting thing I remember, there are also quite a few scares I forgot!
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.
A wacky film that’s mostly aesthetic, but it’s always a pleasure to watch Nic Cage.
CENSOR, directed by Prano Bailey-Bond, is a strong first film that pays homage to 80s “video nasties.”
Pandemics are the worst but digital streaming can stay forever.
I will never stop loving SABRINA but I may have been happier without lackluster Part 4.
Carol J. Clover’s MEN, WOMEN, and CHAINSAWS has some exciting insight into gender in horror! It also highlighted a gap in my horror education that I plan to remedy ASAP.
The first and only zombie film to ever make me cry actual tears is a modern South Korean action horror! AND it has jokes.
My number 3 scare of 2020 has it all: an idyllic setting, a badass heroine, plenty of jokes, and a biting reminder that we should definitely eat the rich.
