Even though I really don't have time to do this now, I want to get my best-ofs up before Boom Boom starts deluging us with entertainment news as promised. Here we go, short and sweet.
1. Favorite: The Ring. Everything a horror movie should be: truly scary, atmospheric, satisfying.
2. Hidden gem: n/a The good movies I watched are well known to all.
3. Most disturbing: Angel Heart. Psychologically even more disturbing than visually. Yum.
4. Scream Queen and King: Jamie Lee Curtis in Halloween and Bruce Campbell in Evil Dead.
5. Worst: Plan 9 From Outer Space. Wow, so incredibly baaaaaad.
6. So bad it's good: The Thing with Two Heads, Plan 9 from Outer Space.
7. Goriest: Slither, and a movie I actually couldn't finish as it was making me sick (and therefore couldn't write up): Mark of the Devil. Perhaps my stomach will toughen up by 10/2008?
8. Most memorable death: Tough call. I'll go with Angel Heart.
9. Best looking monster: Aliens.
10. Scariest: The Ring and Alien.
Thanks so much for inviting me to play this year! I had a great time. I'mnotmarc, I'm flattered that you were concerned by my nipping at your heels. It was an honor even to be in the running against a Horrorthon veteran. Happy December everyone!
