Revolt of Nature Horror Films: The Must-Sees

26 October 2013 10:14 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Writer Lee Gambin calls them Natural Horror films, other writers call them Revenge of Nature or Nature Run Amok films and writer Charles Derry considers them a type of Apocalyptic Cinema.

Of course we’re speaking of one of the great horror subgenres for which we’ll employ writer Kim Newman’s tag: The Revolt of Nature.

Since the end of the 1990s, lovers of animal attack films have been subjected to copious amounts of uninspired Nu Image, Syfy Channel and Syfy Channel-like dreck like Silent Predators (1999), Maneater (2007) Croc (2007), Grizzly Rage (2007) and a stunning amount of terrible shark attack films to name a few that barely scratch the surface of a massive list.

These movies fail miserably to capture the intensity of the unforgettable films they are imitating and the recent wave seems to carry with it the intent of giving the Revolt of Nature horror film a bad name. »

It’s Not TV: HBO, The Company That Changed Television: The Green Channel

10) The Green Channel

Let’s say it’s the 1960s, and you live in New York City, some place in downtown Manhattan. You’re cool, you’re with it, so maybe it’s a nifty loft in the Chelsea district. That puts you maybe twenty blocks from the Empire State Building, the transmission source for all over-the-air TV signals in the city. Well, if your neat, beatnik pad happens to be in just the wrong place, with one of those famous New York City skyscrapers standing between you and the Empire State, somebody living 15 miles away in the New Jersey ‘burbs is getting better TV reception than you. While you may appreciate the poetic irony of living amidst the greatest collection of television signals in the country and not being able to get any of it, you don’t think it’s nearly as funny as your friends over in Jersey do. »

Getting the giggles

Try to keep a straight face as we assemble cinema's best scenes involving corpsing

Get your laughing gear around these five examples of characters creasing up at inopportune moments. Which scenes of helpless hilarity would you add to the list?

The Candidate

Robert Redford's presidential hopeful can't help but show his human side. But politics is a serious business, so "grim up" is the advice of spin-meister Peter Boyle. Easier said than done when you've just been tea-bagged by a microphone.

The Departed

"Don't laugh!" is also very good advice, especially when delivered by Jack Nicholson's fearsome gangster after you've just scuppered his plans. The term "corpsing" could prove all too apt here.

State-sanctioned assaults on kids are, of course, no laughing matter, and neither is Bob Bowes' horribly convincing pitbull of a headmaster, »
