Funny how memories work. For the longest time, when someone asked, "What got you into horror?" I'll always speak of the time I first sifted through the pages of Stephen King's "Cycle of the Werewolf" when it was first published in '83 and becoming mesmerized by Berni Wrightson's graphic, atmospheric werewolf attack illustrations. But my first brush with the macabre, and something rather grisly - I should add, came much earlier...in a goddamn Disney movie. Netflix dropped a ton of titles on Instant earlier this month and one of the films I was eager to add to my queue and jump into was 1981's Dragonslayer by Matthew Robbins, who not only directed The Legend of Billy Jean, another favorite of mine, and *batteries not included, but has become a frequent Guillermo del Toro collaborator (Mimic, Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, Crimson Peak) as well.
