    I needed this movie. It is hard to believe I had gone 28 years without seeing it. A true classic.

    Hoop-Tober V: 100 Years of Horror Film #4

    A visually stunning masterpiece of the horror genre, Suspiria is one of the finest films ever made. It deserves every one of the five stars that I gave it last time around.

    The best part of this re-watch was that by the time the movie ended, my cat was asleep on my chest so I didn't want to move. I ended up falling asleep to the theme (thank you Goblin) on the blu-ray menu.

    On a side note I just purchased the Synapse Films collector's edition, blu-ray, steelbook at HorrorHound Weekend Indianapolis last month.

    Hoop-Tober V: 100 Years of Horror Film #17

    Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho is arguably the finest horror film ever made. Since its release, it has influenced literally hundreds of movies and pop culture. The infamous shower scene is iconic, and Anthony Perkin's performance as Norman Bates elicits sympathy from the audience in a way that becomes very effective once the twist at the end occurs. This movie is bold, beautiful, and damn near flawless.
