📽 30-Day Horror Movie Challenge, Days 15 & 16 🎃

What’s this all about? See the first post.

(Late posting today. Played a little bit of frisbee last night and today. My body thinks eating and sleeping are really the only two options. And I’m not an advanced-poster-type blogger…)

Day 15 – Your favorite horror film involving serial killers

Confession time: My favorite film about a serial killer is not Se7en (1995). It’s a different David Fincher movie: Zodiac (2007). The rub here is that if Se7en stretches the definition of “horror film,” Zodiac certainly does. But Se7en is a very close second. Fincher at his best creates a strong sense of place, which is something that resonates with me. Bonus points for a screenplay chocked full of literary references and a detective who hits the library for information.

Day 16 – Your favorite childhood themed horror film

I had an internal war about where Let the Right One In (2008) was going to go on this list. It was a strong contender for favorite vampire movie or favorite foreign film, but the young actors in this film are *so* good. The US remake is good too (Let Me In (2010)), but the original is just a more real feeling and a little more brutal. Oh, and the book’s good too.
