It’s Halloween-time, and when the air gets colder and the nights get shorter, a scary movie with your pals sounds about perfect. For those who don’t want to get to the theatres to see “Sinister” this week, popping a spooky DVD in and wrapping up in a warm blanket is a sure bet. But what to watch?
You’ll hear the usual responses: “The Exorcist”, “The Evil Dead“, “Scream”, “The Omen”, “The Blair Witch Project”, and every other tried and true list-worthy flick out there. But who doesn’t at least already know the premise of most of these movies? Where’s the surprise when everyone already knows (SPOILER) that there are actually two killers doing the slicing and dicing?
So just for you, my fellow horror fans, and as much for myself as well, I have asked my fantastic circle of Twitter friends for suggestions. I asked them to tell me of the “greatest horror films you probably haven’t seen”, and the response was great. I can’t wait to start watching some of these titles, and to share them with you so that you can have a surprising evening of horror, at home under your favorite blanket.
We’re keepin’ it old-school again with our next spooky selection , following “Eden Lake“, “The Beyond“, and others, as we take a look at 1985′s “Demons“. Lamberto Bava’s outrageously violent popcorn horror flick has a bit of life-imitating-art-imitating-life and a whole lotta blood n’ guts. Many thanks go out to @LilBlogOHorrors for suggesting another great scary-movie night winner…
