Loved it! Had perfect references!
17 January 2006 | by (WILMINGTON, NC) – See all my reviews

Documentaries about horror/ thriller movies are indeed my favorite subjects. I liked the selections this movie gave out. Donald Pleasance(1920-95) and Nancy Allen did a great job explaining the causes and effects of a thriller. Mr. Pleasance from the "Halloween" movies really showed some effects when he sees Jamie Lee Curtis' character attacked Michael Myers. Knowing your in that particular movie, you must expect to root for the hero/heroine. I liked the selection of movies they displayed: Friday The 13th, Alien, The Thing, Ms. 45, Halloween, and many others to mention. This reference movie was very helpful, though I couldn't name every movie that they sampled it was very useful to know what they are. I also like the part where they did some archival footage of Alfred Hitchcock. He IS the master of suspense! Horror and thriller movies wouldn't be the same without him. Despite being a documentary, people should have the understand of horror, and there will be less nightmares when leave the theater, or go to sleep at night. Hey, horror movies don't faze me! Rating 4.5 out of 5 stars!
