Fright Night is Only A Week Away!

In Lieu of the Halloween season, I have come across a list on regarding the top ten most overlooked scary movies. I have only heard about one of these films, "Frailty" made in 2001 and starring Bill Paxton. The other nine range in genre and go all the way back to 1932 with the movie Freaks, which featured an actual legless man and real Siamese twins. According to the site:

"The reality of the freaks’ situation is constantly staring you in the face, as they aren’t really acting, so it is hard to feel pity for the “normal” humans who get so much pleasure out of torturing them. What’s truly great about this movie is that it still shocks after 75 years."

Another film featured is from famous director, Michael Powell, who's film Peeping Tom follows a serial killer, who murders women on tape then watches it all go down again and again. Sounds utterly disturbing.

Perhaps some of these films are featured on FearNet on Comcast?

Although I haven't seen any of these films, I am just happy they are coming out when they are, considering every one in America seems to be rushing the holidays - even the film industry. Vince Vaughn's new movie, Fred Clause came out a little too early- no maybe a LOT, in my opinion!
