Horror films are for people interested in the darkness inside themselves who don’t want to face or confront it directly. Horror provides a comfortable environment in which to escape. Below is a list of horror films that allowed me to escape when I needed it most.

I’ve signal boosted Stephen King’s CAT’S EYE (“Josh, I get it, you love the troll!”) and pedestalled ARACHNOPHOBIA (“I get it! Jeff Daniels plays terror for real! It makes the comedy work! Shush!”). But, when Brett at Letterboxd asked for an article comprised of horror flicks that inspired me, rather than barfing a list of the comic genre staples of my formative years, as Halloween approaches (and whilst not on the set of a secret thriller I’m in as the…
This week on The Letterboxd Show, Chvrches joined the crew to talk about their new album 'Screen Violence', which was released on August 27th. While there, they shared how they dropped hints about 'Sound Violence' on their Letterboxd profile, what their favorite horror films are, and why He's All That is a great film, as well as some other treats that you'll just have to listen for!
Growing up, everyone has ’that thing’ that they remember scaring them. The basement with the lights off, that painting in your father’s office that looks like it’s staring at you, that one thing that you give a wide berth when you’re alone because you just don’t trust it. For me, that thing was Pennywise the Clown.
This October, Jill Gevargizian, director, co-writer, and producer of The Stylist, took a seat in the stylist's chair and slices into her film recommendations for #31DaysOfHalloween with Letterboxd's Horrorville. You can check out the full list of her favorites here.
Last October, we launched Horrorville to share all things scare-related, with hopes that the pandemic would eventually fade and the world would return to normal. Almost two years after the onset of the pandemic, things still aren’t the same, but we did see horror both make a comeback and have an impact at the box office. With films such as Candyman, Don't Breathe 2, Spiral: From the Book of Saw and Malignant hitting the theaters and gaining some mild success,…

It’s rare that a film seen at an AMC multiplex at Universal City Walk actively challenges my cinema senses the way TITANE did last night, so much so that I don’t know what to really say at the moment but dammit if I can’t wait to see it again ASAP.
This is real deal transgressive cinema provocation we need more ASAP.
Elle Callahan's script for WITCH HUNT is incredibly clever as an allegory & a modern witchcraft tale. It's the type of writing that you can imagine on HBO, or some other prestige genre television show -- big ideas and world building conveyed economically because of how simple and effective they are.
She also does a great job behind the camera as well --- getting strong performances from her young cast, and some real showmanship from both her bad guy and the…
I just hope it made some horror folks smile and they had a fun and absurd escape. It's entirely why we made it.
Thanks for checking it out.

This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
ok, this movie was WAY more fun than it had any right to be! first off, lots of homages to other classic horror films. and i mean LOTS. you could really feel the respectful nods.
it had a fantastic performance from Barbara Crampton. her transformation from timid to tyrant was a joy to watch, and complimenting this well, Larry Fessenden perfectly galumphed his way around her in the typical oblivious husbandy way. their spousal dynamic was fantastic, and by the…
It's like Saw, but done by people who have never actually seen Saw and were instead basing it on the way their friend Parker described the plot that time while they were all watching She's All That.
