October Horrors 2017 Day 24 – Jacob’s Ladder (1990)

Jacob’s Ladder, 1990.

Directed by Adrian Lyne.

Starring Tim Robbins, Elizabeth Pena, Danny Aiello, and Matt Craven.

Synopsis:

Jacob Singer is a seemingly normal man living a seemingly normal life when he is suddenly confronted with a series of strange events and even stranger visions. With his life becoming ever more chaotic and his visions ever more nightmarish, Jacob attempts to uncover the truth behind a traumatic event that he was involved with during his time as a soldier in Vietnam.

Psychological horror is perhaps among the most complex and fascinating of horror sub-genres. With it often delving into the intricacies of the mind, madness, life, death and beyond, psychological horror has the rare opportunity to tell much deeper stories than any common garden gore splattered slasher flick.

In my view one of the finest that this sub-genre has to offer comes in the form of Adrian Lyne’s dark

Toronto Film Review: ‘Unless’

Toronto Film Review: ‘Unless’
A comfortable Ontario family is thrown into turmoil when its eldest daughter inexplicably becomes a Toronto street person in “Unless.” Irish director Alan Gilsenan’s Canadian co-production is an admirable if not entirely successful drama that does as well as can be hoped with a difficult adaptation task: Late Pulitzer-winning Carol Shields’ 2002 final novel (she died the year after its publishing) is primarily an internal monologue by the author’s alter ego, a successful scribe played here by Catherine Keener. With the book’s many ruminations about writing and feminist issues gone, what’s left remains an arresting premise not given a great deal of dramatic development. Nonetheless, this gracefully crafted and acted piece proves rewarding in the end.

Reta Winters (Keener) and physician husband Tom (Matt Craven) live at a pleasant remove from city life, with two teenage daughters (Chloe Rose, Abigail Winter) still at home. Their moderately hectic

Drive-In Dust Offs: Happy Birthday To Me (1981)

Aging much better than a freezer burnt, half eaten cake, Happy Birthday to Me (1981) stands out as one of the better ones from the golden era of slashers, when the major studios weren’t afraid to throw some blood soaked (Canadian) coin at a B level concept, and in the process giving it some A list icing.

The Canadian ties? Filmed in Montreal when tax credits were still flying fast and furious, Happy was one of Columbia Pictures early ‘80s ventures into the horror world. (Graduation Day, released the same year, was the breadwinner of the two.) Recruiting the Canadian producing juggernaut of Andre Link and John Dunning (David Cronenberg’s cohorts on his mid ‘70s output, Shivers and Rabid), Columbia was guaranteed a good return on their investment. Of course, the Canuck connection doesn’t stop there – the cast includes such faces of Canadiana as Lawrence Dane (Scanners), Jack Blum
