Father Gore’s 2nd Make a Case looks at the squandered potential in Wes Craven’s 1989 SHOCKER.
THE SERPENT AND THE RAINBOW proves Wes Craven was as political as any of his contemporaries while remaining totally horrific
Before Wes Craven passed away, he gave us one last SCREAM. With Kevin Williamson along as screenwriter again, these two leave Ghostface’s legacy full of terror.
SCREAM 3 doesn’t match up with the other films in the series. Don’t count it out, though. Craven still brings the horror, with a dash of depravity & a stellar Neve Campbell performance.
One of the better horror sequels, SCREAM 2 takes aim at the sensationalisation of true crime, media exploitation, and yes, even the horror genre and sequels themselves.
This Deodato flick is not as filled with brutality as CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST, but it doesn’t skimp on the vicious murder and desecration of the flesh.
Craven’s influential, innovative slasher took horror to a new level in the ’90s.
