  • The Dreadful Ten: 10 Twisted Contemporary Fairy Tales

    ,,

    The line between horror and fantasy is so easily blurred that it can be hard to tell where one ends and the other begins. Even children’s fairy tales, intended to be magical instead of scary, can be chill-inducing. Think of the living puppet Pinocchio, originally from Carlo Collodi’s 1883 children’s book.

In an attempt to filter my overwhelming excitement into something productive, here’s a list of the top ten movies I cannot wait to see in Montreal over the next couple weeks. I’ve decided to leave off some of the awesome screenings at Fantasia that you’ve already heard about — like LIGHTS OUT and BEFORE I WAKE, the films you’re going to be seeing soon in mainstream multiplexes.

Luckily, STRANGER THINGS absolutely falls in the latter category, crafting a story evocative of Stephen King and ’80s supernatural thriller pulp novels that balances brilliant character work and gripping genre storytelling effortlessly.
