Ten Alternative Films for this Horror Viewing Season
Twisted... Before Christian Slater became a rebel heartthrob in Heathers, he was a sociopathic teenager named Mark in this little known sinister flick. Mark likes to spend his time creatively... finding sick ways to torture his sister, his babysitter and his fellow classmates... not to mention he also likes to throw kittens in the fire... yes, I said kittens. While this film is more of a thriller then an actual horror film, it's still twisted and evil.
Pumpkinhead... 'Keep away from Pumpkinhead, unless you're tired of living' recites a character in this spooky '80s film about a revenge-seeking father who summons a demon creature named Pumpkinhead to kill the teenagers who accidently killed his son. Appropriately named for the season, Pumpkinhead is a chilling and effectively creepy film that is better to watch with a group of friends rather than alone.
The Loved Ones... You will never want to eat fried chicken again after you watch this Australian horror film about a rejected teenage girl who kidnaps her crush on prom night and then with the help of her creepy father, proceeds to torture the poor guy with disturbing methods involving boiling water and liquid cleaner....you can use your imagination with that one. This film is hard to watch at times and the strange father/daughter relationship is cringeworthy.
