Much as I advocate for people to go out of their houses to see movies, and much as I think horror is a genre best experienced with an audience at a movie house, there’s a delicious creep factor to watching horror alone in the comfort of one’s dwelling.
I had fun with this list; writing gave me the chance to revisit some recent favorites, like Prevenge and The Autopsy of Jane Doe and, perhaps most of all, The Lure; it gave me a chance to reevaluate my dislike of Eaten Alive, which I first saw at the Coolidge Corner Theatre’s annual 12 hour horrorthon, and which I hated in that context. Turns out that Eaten Alive isn’t the kind of film that plays well at 3:00 AM. Surprise.
Anyways. You can read the full piece over at Polygon.
