Really, really impressed with the Evil Dead reboot! Fantastically done, with tones of splatteriffic goodness. The practical F/X are amazing. Raimi and Campbell should be proud of producing this.

“This is not “The Making of The Shining.” This is not a biography of Stanley Kubrick. This is: After the film has left the filmmaker’s hands, how does the audience grapple with it and make sense of it?” ~ Director Rodney Ascher from an interview with Vulture
My review of Room 237 - a documentary that I found interesting and irritating and frustrating all at the same time.

This is pretty awesome - although I take a little bit of issue with shoving Blue Velvet into the horror category, but since Frank IS pretty terror-inducing, I’ll let it slide. :)

#15 of 31 Horror Films in 31 Days: Wes Craven’s My Soul to Take. 
And thus concludes my Wes Craven retrospective this year! There are a lot more “downs” than “ups” in Craven’s catalog, but I still have to love the guy for inventing Freddy—and I still think the ups are SO stand-out, that he deserves a place of honor in my list of favorite horror film Directors.

#10, 11, 12 and 13 of 31 Horror Films in 31 Days: Wes Craven’s Scream Quadrilogy
Scream is one of my favorite horror films EVER, and the sequels - well, I love ‘em and hate ‘em; but there’s enough blood and scares that I mostly love ‘em.
