I had no idea that Nicolas Roeg directed The Witches. Mind, I've never seen it, but seeing his name attached surprised me. That's a great story, I know.
I love the Ghost Ship phenomenon, which is that a lot of people like it but they're nearly all completely ashamed to admit it. Usually it's deflected with a "but I only like that opening scene in the ballroom, I swear!" It's okay, guys. Like what you like! You will only be judged a lot because Internet. Look, here's a confession: I'm not nearly as goo-goo over May as most people seem to be. Judge me as you will!
In My Skin should get more love because holy hell, it's as brutal and terrific as any other modern French horror movie.
GUESS WHAT when I looked up The Town That Dreaded Sundown on imdb.com (I couldn't remember the year it was made, okay, I'M SORRY SUE ME), there was an entry for a 2014 version of the film. It's being remade, I had no idea because I don't pay attention to horror news anymore because why should I? But anyway. I also no longer get worked up over the idea of remakes because at this point, everything in the world has already been either improved, marginally improved, or shit all over by a remake. I suppose I simply never expected this little movie to be remade. As long as the death-by-trombone-with-a-knife-attached scene remains, I'm fine with it.
