Horror films from A to Z: part five
At The ABCs of Death, in its final night at the Sie FilmCenter, you're going to get the equivalent of horror tapas -- one short, punchy tale for each letter of the alphabet, each delivered by a current or rising star in the genre. It's a tasty appetizer that can serve as a meal in and of itself, but what if you want more? What if this just whets your appetite for horrific death and graphic dismemberment?
We're here to help. In the spirit of The ABCs of Death, we're offering 26 full-length horror-movie suggestions, one for each letter of the alphabet, at a pace of five a day for each day -- and in this installment, you get six. Some are favorites old and new, some are overlooked gems, and some are just there because, look, there aren't very many horror movies that start with Q, okay?
Scared yet? You will be after watching these 26 films.
U is for Undead
Take a trip to the Outback with this loopy tale of zombies, aliens and a redneck ninja in overalls. Well, whatever Australia's equivalent of redneck is, anyway.
U is for Undead
Ever wonder what all of this staring at fucked-up images on screen might be doing to your brain, or even to your body? David Cronenberg did, and his answer is found in the hallucinogenic and disturbing Videodrome.
W is for Wolf Creek
The spiritual descendant of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Wolf Creek delves into the horrific possibilities of meeting the absolute worst person possible while broken down in the literal middle of nowhere. Fair warning: This one's about as brutal as it gets, so don't be surprised when you start to squirm.
