Top 10 horror directors/producers/writers of the 90’s

The 90’s, unfortunately the visceral contradiction of the decade that preludes it. The 90’s was an era of horror where teen horror overshadowed, there was a lack of depth in the big film story lines bar a few, and really only about 3-5 memorable and worthy horror movies were born. Scream and The Blair Witch Project saved it by the end of the decade, but it was a little too late in the decade that seemed a little lost and confused.

Next years ‘Halloween’ to be in an alternate reality.

It is still a year away, but when a big hitter such as Halloween is mentioned, we stop and listen regardless of the insignificance of time. We listen more intently when a legend such as John Carpenter speaks, and recently he made some comments about the newest take on Halloween, which will be released sometime in 2018.

Carpenter said that ‘it picks up after the first one’ and ‘that none of the others [sequels] we’re ever made’. He is really ‘impressed’ with whose directing (David Gordon Green) and the way it has been written (Green, Danny Mcbride). The words from the master of 20th century horror should be recognized and if this the case, despite Rob Zombie’s remakes being intriguing and dark, then this remake may be the best take on Myers since the original. I guess we will have to wait and see what this alternative film reality will bring.

More news to follow as it comes.

‘Gerald’s Game’ review

If you thought IT was terrifying, and if it led to you feeling vulnerable and uneasy then the newest Stephen King inspiration will do much the same, if not more. There have been many debates over how scary IT was, and now with it growing into meme culture, it only signifies that maybe it wasn’t really scary at all. At least none of this can be said for this film, as Gerald’s Game stood up to it’s alignment with Stephen King as a disturbing and psychologically bruising horror film that didn’t let me catch my breath until the credits began to roll.

Some BDSM to help fix a broken relationship gone horribly wrong is how it begins, but behind the outset there are layers of creepiness dug in damaged childhoods and a ominous soul that continually haunts the protagonist all the way through. Carla Gugino does a great job as lead character and victim Jessie Burlingame, whilst the makeup done for character Raymond Andrew Joubert was phenomenal. The cinematography and directing with it’s changes from first person POV back to normal audience viewing employed a great sense of despair and attachment to Jessie.Throughout the film you grip tight as each quick change from flashback to real time and between hallucinations keeps you glued to the screen.

It wasn’t packed with jump scares, with it more so the being the actual plot that made this film terrifying, which was refreshing in the horror scene today with it’s ample of haunting scares. This psychological thriller will stand the test of time and has been a gem among the mammoth releases that we have seen this year. It’s better than IT and sliding in just behind Get Out, i’d have to say it’s one of my favourites of the year.

Friday Night Fright – October 6th

It’s that time of the week again! I have had so many positive responses for this segment and lord does it means a lot, so keep on checking in and I’ll keep up the good work for all you horror fans. Once again, this week will mainly relate to the series I’ve been working on, if you haven’t checked it out yet, then A) what have you been doing!?!? and B) click on the LIST tab in the right hand corner and checkout the decade by decade list I’ve recently been publishing. This week i looked at the 80’s which as I’ve mentioned countless times is the best era of horror cinema and also just a great time of cinema in general. Many of my favourites were released during this decade, Gremlins, The FogAn American Werewolf In London just to name a few. Here we go, below is this weeks horror movies that will keep you entertained!

 

Horror Buffs: Tenenbre (1982) – I am yet to see this famous hit, but what i do know about this film is that it is sublime and a full illustration of Argento’s creative mind. Great cinematography and a raw and authentic take on scare factors makes this psychological horror flick a must see to really appreciate how talented this Italian director is.

 

Beginners:  Gremlins (1984) – This fun and relatively cute monster movie is critically acclaimed as a horror. At times it may seem like a children’s movie and at others, a comedy horror, either way it features some really cool villains and a severely different type of horror movie, especially amongst the films being released in the 80’s. It is extremely important to be watched if you want to understand all the differences in horror cinema, and also understand where some of the other monster movies of today, such as  Leprechaun, for example gained their inspiration. Also, Gizmo will win your heart over, so there’s that!

 

Casual Fans: A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987) – It’s hotly debated which Nightmare film is the best, we know it’s not the first or 5th or 6th, and this one is definitely mine. It’s one of the most fun, bizarre and creepy editions in the franchise and has a pretty cool narrative surrounding the children featured, which makes for a unique and also really entertaining slasher flick. It also features two of the greatest minds of the 80’s, Wes Craven and Chuck Russel.
