Film 22 of #31DaysofHorror
a suspenseful film that only gives away small amounts of scares and keeping the big one for the films finale. Deborah Kerr is not only beautiful in front of the camera, she's also emphatically engaged in her role as Governess. The stark black and white cinematography adds another sinister feel to the film, with shadows lurking in every scene, The Innocents manages to be sophisticated in its horror. A rare gem from a by gone era.
Film 20 of #31DaysofHorror
The film that taught us the true meaning of 'Never judge a book by its cover' is so dumb, and so much fun, I even watch it at Christmas. A great paring of Tyler Labine and Alan Tudyk carry the film for its brief runtime, giving the audience plenty of laughs (and a few scares) along the way. Plenty of the clichéness that usually bogs down horror films but here, director Eli Craig uses them to satirical good use. A funny, un-apologetic horror/comedy that will have you laughing and cringing in equal measure.
Now, where's the sequel dammit?
