What's happening to me?!

Men turning into vegetation, wolves, and more. Nothings scarier than the very thing you can't escape from, yourself.

  • Creepshow

    Creepshow

    ★★★★½

    Comical and light hearted for sure but the vegetation story involving Stephen King turning into a giant clump of grass works emotionally too. It's surprising how much investment you realize you have in the guy when he begins to reach the end of his rope.

  • Tetsuo: The Iron Man

    Tetsuo: The Iron Man

    ★★★★

    Undoubtedly one of the most arresting and unpleasant experiences in front of a TV I've had in a long, long while, Tetsuo is a film that unnerves in both obvious and subtle ways. By its climax your not entirely sure what your seeing anymore, and in effect you feel as if you've become something entirely different.

  • The Wolf Man

    The Wolf Man

    ★★★★

    We all go a little crazy sometimes, but killing people and having no recollection of it? Now there's something to think about and The Wolf Man is among, if not, the best of the Universal monster films thanks in large part to its cast that treat the material seriously. Talbot is a charming, kind hearted guy, which makes his demise feel real.

  • Hellbound: Hellraiser II

    Hellbound: Hellraiser II

    I wouldn't go far as to say the film is anything outstanding last I remember, in fact it has been a while, but the segment that involves the man cutting his skin off, convinced there's insects underneath, is authentically disturbing. Shaking me to the core in that way that separated the first two Hellraiser films from the rest of the genre.

  • Eraserhead

    Eraserhead

    ★★★★½

    I'd be remised if I didn't mention the mutant baby and radiator girl from this surreal nightmare.

  • A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge

    A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge

    ★★★★

    The homoerotic subtext that seems to present itself as an evil force might be off putting to some, but Mark Patton does a great job putting us in his state of stress and fear as he's taken over by Freddy. It's an interesting twist from the 1st film.

  • The Raven

    The Raven

    ★★★★

    Torture devices and a murderer whose face is disfigured on purpose by an evil doctor, there's body horror a plenty in this flick.

  • The Evil Dead

    The Evil Dead

    ★★★★½

    In lesser hands this would've been a gore fest, but in Raimi and cast's capable means they manage to make an emotional investment in Ash's lone endurance. The film is short, but the night feels long.

  • The Fly

    The Fly

    Cronenberg's remake of the same title is worthwhile for sure, and worthy of its praise, so for the sake of being different I'm including the first film. Both are excellent in their regards though.

  • The Passion of the Christ

    The Passion of the Christ

    While it may not fall in line with the spirit of October and Halloween lists, The Passion is nonetheless a harrowing body horror film. Whether or not its depictions of torture and violence provide legitimate emotionality is up for debate, but the displayed horror of what Christ endured worked on me.

  • The Exorcist

    The Exorcist

    ★★★★½

    Overpraised? Never... not in a million years.
