Horror movies often get a bad rap because like anything else the more sensational examples of the genre (Friday the 13th, Halloween, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) suck up all the oxygen, leading people to believe that if they’re not into copious amounts of gore, violence and/nudity there’s no place for them. And sure there’re a […]
I suspect the admiration I feel for Larry Fessenden’s Wendigo is all out of proportion to the movie itself, but he could have easily taken the “easy” way out–monster turns up, slaughters a whole bunch of people, the end–and that’s not necessarily always a bad thing, but no matter how well it’s done it’s also […]
