    The Dreadful Ten: Top 10 Dead Horror Films We’d Love to See!

    In the horror genre, as well as filmmaking at large, it’s no surprised that there are a mountain of unrealized movies floating around in cinematic limbo. Between scripts that are purchased so that competitors can’t produce them, scripts that are rewritten beyond recognition and the multitude of movies where financing fell apart, the industry is filled with many fright films that almost were.

The result: a taut, beautifully realized film that was not only a top notch horror flick, but a brilliant exploration into America’s romance with the automobile! CHRISTINE is all about possession and obsession, and the monster herself sets her high beams on the pathetic miserable Arnold Cunningham. Transforming for the worse as a result of “owning” the titular ’58 Plymouth Fury, Keith Gordon gave life to Arnold Cunningham all those years ago, and recently spent some time with FANGORIA to revisit his past love- that sleek, sexy but sinister CHRISTINE…
