THE CHANGELING “A top ten haunted house film. Maybe top of the top ten. An unabashed classic.”
THE THING “What’s to say except, this is a perfect movie. It’s just the best. And demonstrates that sometimes, remakes can be superior to the originals.”
HOUSE OF THE DEVIL “Not enough films play with the Satanic Panic of the 80s. Did you know some people went to jail for being Satanists in the 80s, and only recently were let out? And they didn’t even really do anything? It was a weird time. Like now. It’s always a weird time, I guess, and so that’s just one thing to like about this movie.”
BLACK CHRISTMAS “By the director of a) Christmas Story and b) Porky’s. That’s all you need to know.”
GET OUT “Key & Peele always showed that the duo had a horror-movie side to them, and Peele’s GET OUT proved it. Easily one of the greatest horror-thrillers of all time.”
