Coming Distractions October 6th, 2009
Anvil: The Story of Anvil
Assassination of a High School President
Trick 'r Treat
My Life in Ruins
Purgatory House (written by & starring a 14 year-old girl)
Bones - 4th Season
Nip/Tuck - 5.2
Despite the silly 'r, Trick 'r Treat is actually really fun. It's got Anna Paquin & Dylan Baker, among others. It's 4 intertwined stories, in good old Tales from the Crypt fashion (but more seamless.)* I think you should watch it. And you should watch Creepshow 2, and I should rewatch it. I love the one with the couples on the raft. Even blobs of evil can't stop teen libido.
Other short story horror movies:
Tales from the Dark Side
Twilight Zone: The Movie
Any others you can think of?
*Side note and a mild spoiler: some of the special effects in T'rT brought me straight back to Neil Jordan's The Company of Wolves. A ridiculous movie about Little Red Riding Hood, wherein several different ways to get from Point A (human body) to Point B (wolf body) are explored. Angela Lansbury is priceless in it as Granny. "Never trust a priest. Why do you think they call him father?"
