FIVE MOVIES TO "DIE" FOR
Halloween is approaching and my yearly tradition is to pick a day and watch all the horror films I can stand before either puking or falling asleep. Usually the cable television networks hold their own "Horrorfests" where they show horror movies over several days until Halloween night. If you are a true horror fan like myself, you have seen what they offer many times over. It's always the usual suspects, Carrie, Halloween, Child's Play, The Omen etc. Don't get me wrong, these are great horror classics but goddamn, how many times do we need to see them? Here I present to you some films that you may have never heard of but are great nonetheless. Being the horror aficionado I am, the list was hard to narrow down but here goes in no particular order:
1. Audition- A lonely man gets more than he bargains for when he is introduced to a lovely young woman through a fake casting call. (in Japanese with subtitles)
2. High Tension- A psychopath breaks into a home and wreaks havoc on a family. It is now up to Marie, who was a visitor in the home, to rescue the last surviving member.
3.Blacula- Exactly what the title implies, a movie about a Black vampire. If you have never seen this Blaxploitation classic, give it a whirl...it's suprisingly very good.
4.Sleepaway Camp- Great 80's slasher flick about teens getting hacked up at a summer camp, and a little something *extra* added in to set it apart from the rest. heehee
5.Henry: Portrait of A Serial Killer- All I will say is this one is so frightening even I almost shut it off. Based on true events.
