In the before times, when movies were those things I watched at night with a bowl of popcorn after a long day at work, I recall thinking that a week-long excursion to the movie theater could only ever be a wonderful dream. An unattainable cinematic utopia that was more cruel to imagine than to disregard, for reality would never welcome such a perfect way of life. Then I went to Fantastic Fest. Day 6 brought with it several movies, both old and new alike. Allow me to elaborate.
Horror movies killed it on the big screen in 2017, but the year also provided horror fans with numerous underseen cult flicks and solid independent horror movies to enjoy at home thanks to the fine folks at labels like Severin Films and Scream Factory. Whether looking for a lost Canuxploitation shocker like Cathy’s Curse or a fun supernatural thrill ride like Don’t Knock Twice, there’s something for everyone.
To celebrate the new year, we’re giving Dead Ringers listeners and readers a chance to score a copy of both films.
