31 Days of Wicked Watching [DAY 22]: Who Runs the World? Girls.

I would position today’s film as one of the most important to the genre. IMDB even names it the No. 15 film in horror movie history in regards to its importance. And I believe it is important not just because of the innate fear that can be felt from the incredibly claustrophobic and dark scenes,Continue reading “31 Days of Wicked Watching [DAY 22]: Who Runs the World? Girls.”

What starts as five narratives (spoiler) then evolves into one with complex characters that are fascinatingly built in a short period of time and a script that is both biting and brilliantContinue reading “31 Days of Wicked Watching [DAY 11]: Always Check Your Candy”

31 Days of Wicked Watching [DAY 8]: A Real American Dream

I’ll be honest here, I would bet a few hardcore fans of horror would argue that this film shouldn’t be included in my 31 Days canon. I’ve heard some even argue it isn’t a horror film at all; I definitely do not agree with that opinion. Today’s film, featured on the day that sports myContinue reading “31 Days of Wicked Watching [DAY 8]: A Real American Dream”
