    The Year in Horror, 2014: Rebekah McKendry’s Top 10 Horrors

    I noted in my FANGORIA Top 10 List from 2013 that fans were shifting from big studio pictures to the indie markets. In 2014 this pattern not only continued, it exploded! While major studio pics like AS ABOVE, SO BELOW, THE QUIET ONES, and OUIJA struggled to impress genre fans, indie flicks delivered top notch scares without the big budgets and massive P&A campaigns.

    30 for 31: “MESSIAH OF EVIL”

    A lot of strange films came out of those old hippie days. Though film was once considered the medium of old white dudes, the 1960s opening of countless film schools made it accessible to the younger generation. Young filmmakers of the late ’60s and early ’70s were treading into a new field, and ss an artistic expression this new generation created films based on experimentation, surrealism, and sometimes hippie-cult panic. These sentiments were echoed in the horror realm in flicks like LET’S SCARE JESSICA TO DEATH, I DRINK YOUR BLOOD, and, my favorite of the lot, MESSIAH OF EVIL.

    30 for 31: “POPCORN” (1991)

    I’m thrilled to see 1991’s POPCORN finding a new pulse with a whole new generation of viewers. The film just recently screened as part of Los Angeles’s Beyond Fest, and Synapse has a snazzy Blu-ray of the movie coming in early 2015, which is awesome considering this film previously never made it past the original VHS release. This loving tribute to gimmick films of the 1950s and 60s, predating Joe Dante’s MATINEE, is as gruesome as it is fun.

    30 for 31: “DEAD OF NIGHT” (1977)

    Like many great discoveries throughout history, I stumbled upon DEAD OF NIGHT completely by accident. I was actually trying to hunt down a copy of Simon Hunter’s DEAD OF NIGHT from 1999, and knowing how rare and expensive that film could be, I headed to my favorite video store in hopes of renting it instead of having to plunk down over $50 for a copy. I asked the owner (who is pretty much a living version of Internet Movie Database), if they had DEAD OF NIGHT (1999), and to my surprise, they had hundreds of movie called “Dead of Night”!
