HIVE is a Cronenbergian paranoid thriller about a New York City couple discovering a cascading series of horrors within their seemingly idyllic apartment building. It’s Muzzleland Press’ final release of the year, and it’s one of our best books yet.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
Now that October is finally here, I’ll be celebrating all month long by posting a trailer a day of my top 31 favorite selections from the esteemed ranks of horror cinema, as well as a few notes on why I love each film. Now, this list is wholly biased and personal, and, honestly, I keep changing the rankings day by day. So go easy on me if we don’t agree!
31. Nightbreed (1990) Directed by Clive Barker
This is the ultimate B-movie; something that aspires to greatness but wildly misses the mark, but is fun, off-beat, uneven, bizarre, creepy, and a heck of a good time. The entire budget went to masks, make up, and sets. They certainly didn’t have any money left over for a comprehensible script. It’s a poor man’s funhouse mirror reflection of The Wizard of Oz. I suggest a few beers (or a Colorado brownie) when watching this one. Avoid the inferior Director’s Cut if possible. Then again, this looks great on Blu-Ray.
