For the record, I don’t buy into the whole “guilty pleasure” thing. I like what I like, who cares. And most horror fans are already judged simply for liking horror movies, any horror movie, so it’s kinda pointless to feel guilty for loving one in particular.
But I had to pick something for today and this is one of my indie faves. Attractive, relatable lead with a tragic backstory and unresolved trauma. Disgusting, borderline vomit-inducing monsters. They’re pretty frickin’ awesome. And, oh yeah, Robert Englund! Need I say more?
The DVD commentary is a good one too, if you haven’t listened to it yet.
