Countdown to Halloween: So what are we watching? Home movies or something?

Decades ago, Linda Blair starred in a landmark film that would reset the bar for horror movies, a film that resonated with audiences and showcased the young actor’s well of talent.

That’s right — I’m talking about 1981’s Hell Night.

Speaking of things coming up from deep, dark wells, let’s talk about The Ring. I know some people will want to start with, “Oh, but Ringu is so much better, especially in the original Japanese and blah blah blah,” and y’know, I agree — originals are almost always better and I like to watch foreign movies in the native language, too.

But I liked The Ring — it was creepy and atmospheric, and I actually cared about what happened to the characters. And while this movie launched a thousand copycat ships with pale, dark-haired demons moving in quick-cut edits, this quiet scene was one that really weirded me out.

See you in seven days.

    Yes, I remember early in the movie they mention how she is supposed to be this sort of awesome mechanic or something … and you know how hard it is to find a good mechanic … you HAVE to root for her %)

    I will always root for mechanics. And plumbers.
