I can’t remember the last time I fell in love with a new horror movie. This is a sad ordeal considering I am the sole proprietor of a horror website. STORM WARNING was the last horror film I really enjoyed, but even that experience was dampened by the rest of the day’s disappointing lineup; INTO THE MIRROR, EXTE, SAW IV, AUTOMATON TRANSFUSION. Four films of such disinterest to me that I could only muster one review – though I must say, if you want to see some crazy, nonsensical Asian shenanigans, watch the last 20 minutes of EXTE; w.t.f.
It doesn’t help that we spend most Saturday nights drinking and mocking the very genre I cherish, thanks to the Sci-Fi channel and their irresistible, cirrhosis inducing train-wrecks. I’ll watch ROCK MONSTER one day and THE THING the next, the disparity in quality between the two just making me sadface. Fuckin’ A, they don’t make ‘em like they used to anymore.
So here is my prompt to you, dear reader. Pull me out of this rut. I have moderately high hopes for THE RUINS in a few weeks, but until then, I am at your mercy. Suggest your favorites, please. Regardless if you think I’ve seen it already or not; the cavern of horror cannon I have not seen is, much to my detriment, quite extensive. So, please, leave any suggestions in the comments or email me directly. Whatever you prefer, dig me from the rut.
I would also like to plant a rescue beacon in the literary department. I’ve been reading a lot of Sci-Fi of late and am frankly getting burnt out on the genre. I need some page turning horror, so I’d appreciate novel title drops as well.
