MOVIES I SAW AT THIS YEARS "SCARY MOVIES 9" PROGRAM AT LINCOLN CENTER

Some were good - some were not so good
  1. SOUTHBOUND - good solid anthology film based around a haunted stretch of highway in the California desert
  2. FRANKENSTEIN (2015) Xavier Samuel plays the monster in this surprisingly touching version which is set in modern day Los Angeles
  3. BASKIN - crazy disturbing Turkish film that I didn't really understand, but loved anyway. Made me dizzy and queasy and very uneasy - don't miss it if you like your scary movies "challenging"
  4. THE DEVILS CANDY - super fun head banging horror with a truly terrifying villian
  5. CHERRY TREE - Awful Irish witch pic - I walked out
  6. EMELIE - a tense bad babysitter thriller that had way more potential than what it delivered (or maybe it was great and the horrible "flashbacks" just made me grumpy)
  7. THE HALLOW - kinduv fun (ish) but nothing you haven't seen before if you like horror movies
  8. THE PACK - wild dogs (that weren't as scary as I wanted them to be) terrorize a rural Australian family
  9. PIECES - sleazy good fun from 1982
  10. SUMMER CAMP - Spanish take on the "camp counselors infected with a virus" genre - staring Jocelin (HOUSE OF THE DEVIL) Donahue
  11. SHREW'S NEST - okay, I actually saw this at Sitges - but it played at Scary Movies as well and it's worth checking out
