Watchin' Trailerz with Doug (Oct. 18)
Night of the Living Dead
Release date: Oct. 1, 1968
The granddaddy of them all. What more is there to say (that I haven't already said a dozen times on this site [spoiler: I heart this film])? That ending ... oh boy. "We're them; they're us," and then, BLAMMO!
Release date: Aug. 4, 2006
One of the scariest movies I've ever seen. Incredibly well paced, directed, acted, EVERYTHING. Never mind the claustrophobia. Never mind the C.H.U.D. It's just, that ending ... YIKES. Those Brits really know how to bum your stone.
Release date: Nov. 21, 2007
If you haven't seen this yet, what are you waiting for? Pro tip: watch the black-and-white version, as director Frank Darabont (and GOD) intended. Something, something ENDING ...
Release date: Nov. 2, 1990
Now we're moving into hell's basement ...
Release date: May 22, 1992
"The bitch is back!" And she's brought sadness. RIP Newt.
The Wicker Man
Release date: June 1975
Note to self: if and when searching for a missing girl based on a tip from an anonymous letter, avoid the remote English town of Summerisle. Super bleak, although the original spares us from these scenes. Although, really, maybe I WANT to see those scenes. Maybe I NEED to see those scenes.
