Halloween

by Murray Leeder Auteur (August 05, 2014)

Don't Look Now

by Jessica Gildersleeve Auteur (October 31, 2017)

Nicolas Roeg's Don't Look Now (1973) has been called "a ghost story for adults." Certainly, in contrast to the more explicitly violent and bloodthirsty horror films of the 1970s, Don't Look Now seems of an entirely...


Macbeth

by Rebekah Owens Auteur (October 04, 2016)

The Blair Witch Project
