For the horror buff, Fall is the best time of the year. The air is crisp, the leaves are falling and a feeling of death hangs on the air. Here at Sound on Sight we have some of the biggest horror fans you can find. We are continually showcasing the best of genre cinema, so we’ve decided to put our horror knowledge and passion to the test in a horror watching contest. Each week in October, Ricky D, James Merolla and Justine Smith will post a list of the horror films they have watched. By the end of the month, the person who has seen the most films wins. Prize Tbd.
Ricky D – 14 Viewings
Directed by William Friedkin
One of the few horror films that really gets under my skin. Essential viewing for any cinephile.
Directed by William Peter Blatty
Directed by Ole Bornedal
The Substitute sends a love-starved alien to terrorize a classroom of youngsters. Paprika Steen highlights the pic with a wickedly over-the-top performance in the title role. Danish director Ole Bornedal (Nightwatch) delivers a fun and nicely paced thriller fit for the whole family. As a throwback to classic 80s family films like Monster Squad and The Goonies, The Substitute is a whole lot of fun, and a hidden gem just waiting to be discovered. Few critics gave the film the positive reviews it deserves, but hopefully in time it will find a cult audience. Special mention to the children, who are all brilliant, especially Jonas Wandschneider as Carl.
#29 The Hidden
Directed by Jack Sholder
- Jason Elsbury
