75 films in and 3/4 through this Horror Marathon…


Speak No Evil (2022)

A Danish family visits a Dutch family they met on a holiday. What was supposed to be an idyllic weekend slowly starts unraveling as the Danes try to stay polite in the face of unpleasantness.

Thoughts: A slow-burn gem that quietly and creepily builds from disquieting to disturbing to deeply dark.



Thesis (1996)

While researching a thesis on violence, a young woman comes across a video depicting a murder. She soon discovers that the victim was a former student in her faculty…

Thoughts: Although it feels strangely dated, it’s a taut thriller that does a terrific job of keeping the audience off-balance until the very end.



What Josiah Saw (2021)

A family with buried secrets reunite at a farmhouse after two decades to pay for their past sins.

Thoughts: The unbearable wait for something to happen ultimately yields a stunning reveal that is, in turn, superseded by an even more stunning revelation. Bleak and lethargically paced, but the ending is a shocker.


Today’s Yes/No…

I am intrigued.

  1. What goes into the trailer? Only the exciting scenes to make someone want to see the movie? Scenes that tease? The best parts of the movie? How do you assemble a trailer? What is the psychology behind one? (Because I know they are trying to mess with my mind.)
