    Matt's ABC Horror Challenge: Letter C

    I feel a little bad because I finally got around to watching this for this latest horror movie challenge and while Cat O' Nine Tails is a giallo at hear, it leans towards the thriller/action side rather than the horror side.

    Gone Girl 2014

It's intoxicating in its subtlety, brimming with impressive performances, and challenging in its delivery. Bravo, good sir.
