FINAL GIRL explores the slasher flicks of the '70s and '80s...and all the other horror movies I feel like talking about, too. This is life on the EDGE, so beware yon spoilers!

Nothing will come between you and this blu-ray...

 ...if, of course, you decide to pick it up at some point! I am of course talking about the new fancy-pants limited edition of High Tension from Second Sight Films, coming November 27th and now available for pre-order

And I do mean fancy-pants. Just look at it! It's got all sorts of interviews and features and commentaries and writing, including an essay by yours truly. Limited editions from Second Sight are always drool-worthy (I sleep with their Lake Mungo release under my pillow every night. I won't lie, it's not comfortable at all, but I can't help myself. It's so pretty.) so I'm looking forward to getting this one in my greasy, bloody clutches. It's also just plain nice to see High Tension get an upgrade! And NO I'm not interested in hearing about how "the movie is good until the twist ruins it." Save it for the next person you pass on the street! I'm getting in my truck AND in my car and I'm driving away from that 20 year old criticism. (High Tension is 20 years old, can you believe it? C'est incroyable!)

Earlier this year, I finally finally finally caved in and watched MARTYRS (2008), and wow, I am so I glad I did.I couldn't stop thinking about it for weeks. (Even though I'll never watch it again.) And then relistened to its GoD podcast (which I had heard so long ago, it didn't spoil me, because I'd forgotten all the beats), and then to its FoH podcast.

Because EoH is covering Home Invasion this season, I've been wading through the New French Extremity catalog, and I've been pleasantly surprised after avoiding the NFE subgenre for so long. I need to see High Tension yet, and this might spur me to do it.

I'm not always in the right frame of mind for NFE but when I am, there's really nothing else like it. I was on an EoH episode talking about Martyrs, that movie is so juicy I could talk about it forever!
