    If you were the only suspect in a senseless bloodbath, would you be standing in the horror section?

    Cameron's favorite movie of all time, and with good reason. It's easily the best slasher ever, with one of the best (top five, possibly three) opening sequences in cinema history (said it once, I'll say it again infinitely: if Beatrice Straight could win an Oscar for a mini performance, Drew should've too 😔).

    Craven's pitch-perfect direction, plus Williamson's faultless screenplay and that…

    I'm not going to die that easily.

    It is, at once, a perfectly crafted time machine back to…

    If it's positive, is there any way it could be negative?

    On any given day, a person can choose to be silent for an untold number of reasons. Often, we're merely existing or listening or processing. Occasionally, we're aiming to hurt or anger someone else; at other times, we're trying to heal inwardly. In many of the worst cases, it's a form of self-defense. Here, Autumn wears hers like armor.

    Hittman's picture is an absolute triumph: laser-focused, urgent, and immensely…
