  • “AMERICAN PSYCHO” Team Reunite for Manson Murders Film

    ,

    One of the definitive horror comedies of the 21st Century, Mary Harron’s AMERICAN PSYCHO is a mean, brilliant film whose cult has grown steadily (and persistently) since hitting cinemas 16 years ago. Now, with Harron wrapping up her work on the all-female filmmaker horror anthology XX (alongside Jennifer Lynch, Karyn Kusama and Jovanka Vuckovic) and the AMERICAN PSYCHO musical splattering onto Broadway soon, good news hit this morning regarding the film’s writer-director duo as Harron and her PSYCHO scribe Guinevere Turner will be reuniting for a film based on the Manson Family murders.

    While there are plenty of films who turn to their lesser aspects in an attempt to wrangle the title of “cult film,” there are select others who earn it simply through existence.

An aesthetic mix between David Lynch, John Waters and Terrence Malick, SONNY BOY is an essential film for those who love the bizarre, surreal and trashy cinema, and Scream Factory has done the world a kindness by bringing it to a new generation on Blu-ray.

    ,,

    When initially approaching the concept for this week’s Dreadful Ten, this writer thought that assembling titles would be easy as could be. After all, what is the horror genre known better for than all manners of prequels, sequels and spin-offs? However, upon further inspection, finding gems among the many horror prequels is more of a frustrating endeavor, with most of the best prequels happening on television and/or as flashbacks in a sequel. Nevertheless, FANGORIA was able to dig up ten petrifying prequels that made the grade!
