SHOCKtober: 170-161



You know the drill: we're still in one vote each territory!

170. Nightwatch (aka Nattevagten) -- 1994, Ole Bornedal
169. Trainspotting -- 1996, Danny Boyle
168. Dead Silence -- 2007, James Wan
167. Deep Red -- 1975, Dario Argento
166. Equinox -- 1970, Jack Woods
165. House of Wax -- 2005, Jaume Collet-Serra
164. Frightmare -- 1974, Pete Walker
163. My Little Eye -- 2002, Marc Evans
162. Come and See -- 1985, Elem Klimov
161. The Blob -- 1988, Chuck Russell

YES TO FRIGHTMARE. Talk about underrated!


And man, it's about time we got some Argento up in this joint. You know, I think the director who's made the most appearances on the list so far is Steven Spielberg. What the heck? It just goes to show, something something.

"Come and See" is truly horrific. It's a WWII movie about the Eastern front, but feels more like some sort of post-apocalyptic horror film.

I suppose "post-apocalyptic horror" describes what the actual events must have seemed like at the time.

Yay Equinox! And My Little Eye is super underrated.

"Come and See" is incredibly disturbing, especially since as historical fiction it hews pretty closely to historical fact. Thankfully, it isn't an exploitation movie like "Men Behind the Sun" which is also based on real history (and not in the "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" way).
