MY FAVOURITE HORROR MOVIE: THOMAS MOLDESTAD

THOMAS MOLDESTAD IS A MULTI-TALENTED NORWEGIAN WRITER WHO HAS WRITTEN FOR A VARIETY OF DIFFERENT GENRES INCLUDING COMEDY, DRAMA AND ADVENTURE. HOWEVER, HORROR FANS WILL BE MOST FAMILIAR WITH HIS INVOLVEMENT WITH THE FIRST TWO 'COLD PREY' MOVIES. HERE, THOMAS TALKS ABOUT HIS FAVOURITE HORROR MOVIE OF ALL TIME - A FILM THAT MADE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE TERRIFIED OF THE OCEAN...STEVEN SPIELBERG'S JAWS. I once read an interview with David Fincher where he said "I like movies that scar. The thing I love about Jaws is that I haven’t been able to swim in the ocean since". He is far from alone. Beach attendance plummeted across the globe in 1975, the year of the movie’s release, and four decades later on

MY FAVOURITE HORROR MOVIE: JACK KETCHUM

Jack Ketchum is an American author and recipient of four Bram Stoker Awards and three further nominations. Many of his novels have been adapted to film, including ‘The Girl Next Door’ and ‘Red’. In 2011 Ketchum received the World Horror Convention Grand Master Award for outstanding contribution to the horror genre. Here he tells us about his favourite horror movie of all time - ‘Whirlpool’. I have to say that there were four horror movies that had the greatest influence upon me and it would be a bitch to say which one had the most. Three of them you know -- NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, the original TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, and John Carpenter's THE THING. The fourth you probably don't. But w

MY FAVOURITE HORROR MOVIE: JESSICA CAMERON

CAMERON'S LATEST FEATURE, 'MANIA' HAS JUST WRAPPED FILMING. HERE, SHE TALKS ABOUT Her FAVOURITE HORROR MOVIE OF ALL TIME - A FILM THAT IS AS DIVISIVE AS IT IS SHOCKING, PASCAL LAUGIER'S MARTYRS. I have loved horror films for as long as I can remember. I love horror films for so many reasons not the least of which anything can and often does happen. I love the unexpected rollercoaster ride that horror films can take you on, its the only genre in which you may really feel every single emotion depending on the film. Your hea

THE TEN BEST WRITTEN MOVIES OF 2017

It’s time for my list of the ten best-written movies of last year! Keep in mind, this is a list of the best written movies, not necessarily the best movies or my favorite movies. The best example of this distinction this year is The Shape of Water – it has a lot that I liked in performance, production design, and tone, but the screenplay was the weakest component, so it doesn't make the list. My usual disclaimers apply: I see a lot of movies, but I haven’t seen everything. This year I haven’t yet seen Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri; Call Me by Your Name; Molly’s Game; or Coco – all of which look to have the potential to bump something off this list. Also, some movies age bet

MY FAVOURITE HORROR MOVIE: NICHOLAS MCCARTHY

American Writer and Director NICHOLAS MCCARTHY is best known for his unnerving breakthrough feature The Pact (2012) and demonic horror At The Devil's Door (2014). McCarthy also wrote and directed a sequence in this year's horror anthology Holidays. Here he talks about a horror classic that not only helped develop his love for the genre - but that has influenced his film-making as well. That film is Dario Argento's 'Suspiria' (1977) The summer I was 16, SUSPIRIA screened at a decaying 900-seat movie palace outside of Boston, where I grew up. When I first saw Dario Argento’s most famous film, I knew nothing beyond that it was an Italian horror movie. There had been a single sentence I had re
