Mark’s Halloween Horror Countdown #10

Nordic Media > Blog > Mark’s Halloween Horror Countdown #10

Well you’ve made it to my top ten. While all of the films on the list so far are very dear to me, my top ten are special. There is something in each that astounded me and transcended my love for the genre to a renewed love for cinema, story and character. And they provide me an insight into the human mind – the scariest place of all. Most of my top ten are intricate pieces of artistic expression. They aren’t bombastic or even successful in a consumerist sort of way. Most are small, intimate, close and personal. Many are similar in tone and in their existential presuppositions and in their psychological analysis on the human condition. They’re not ever just ghost stories, or monster movies, or slashers. Under the guise of a genre film, these are windows into what defines us. Because of that, I love good horror films, and these ten are some of the best.

Let’s begin.

#10 Pieces of Talent
Sometimes a character comes long in film that is so mesmerizing and captivating, that you just can’t shake them. David is the cutest, cuddliest, and sweetest serial killer in horror film history. You just can’t help but love the guy. He’s Hannibal Lecter, but without the maudlin attitude. He’s The Dude of psychopaths. He just loves killin’ people and making movies about doing it. When he discovers Charlotte, he finds his muse, and David, with her as his starlet, will make his masterpiece.

Pieces of Talent is fascinating look at obsession and madness. It’s a crazy trip down the rabbit-hole. There’s rumors of a sequel’s in the works, from the same family that made this one. I’m not sure if David can get any more nuts, but it’ll be great watching him try.

Check out the trailer below and be sure to tune in tomorrow for #9.

You gotta love winter. I love the seasonal change, it's stark beauty. And at least there's no bloody mosquitos!

I'm starting to think batman just finds any reason to slap robin.

I'm looking out my window right now at the lovely snow :P

Loving Edmonton in summer is one thing, freezing in Winter is quite another. NOPE

Isla and Marliss! Hooray for snow.

It's a blue cape and hood Lisa Carson

It hardly even snows here.

Of course.

Batman seriously must be a sadist.
