Roberta Findlay's 1985 shocker TENEMENT came along at the beginning of the crack epidemic. Hard not to see the commentary about a city crumbling around her.
MANDY is a gorgeous, mad hellscape of '80s terror, revenge, astrology, and more.
Leigh Whannell's UPGRADE is a kick ass horror thrill ride. It's also a deep, dark rumination on technological singularity.
Generally disregarded by the mainstream, John Carpenter's THEY LIVE ('88) is a prophetic piece of sci-fi cinema.
Clive Barker's NIGHTBREED explores the difference between experiences in the city, focused on those with power v. those without.
John Carpenter's dystopian classic is a vision of a prison state where American democracy and institutions have failed; where violence and chaos reign!
Like a playbook version of Donald Trump's MAGA plan. Complete with Russian murder tourists. Prescient much?
