Happy Halloween everybody!
My pal Gayle Bass & I spent a jolly hour or so last night on KTAR’s The Jay Lawrence Show talking about horror movies. Gayle snapped this photo of Your Humble Narrator in studio:
I just thought I ought to wear something extra-stylish.
Always great to hang with Gayle, & with the mighty Jay.
Here, by the way, is a ranking of the 50 Least Scary Horror Movies of All Time. It strikes me as a pretty spot-on overview of how lame my favorite genre has been over the last thirty years or so, & I especially appreciate how many of the selections are torture porn & gratuitous remakes of ‘70s & ‘80s faves. But while I’m sure plenty of people will disagree with me, I would argue that a horror movie not being scary does not, in itself, mean it’s not a blast. For instance, while I admit that none of them is very scary, from this list I’m fond of Anaconda (35), Dead Silence (5) & Wes Craven’s 1985 The Hills Have Eyes Part II (12).
