Mark’s Halloween Horror Countdown #9

Nordic Media > Blog > Mark’s Halloween Horror Countdown #9

Here’s the next installment of my top 31 horror films since 2000.

#9 Entrance (2011)

You know that feeling that you have when you’re alone at night and you hear the floor creak or notice a shadow in the hall that you’ve never seen before; you sit in the dark, frozen, neck strained in the direction of the sound, eyes darting as though their aim will acutely pinpoint the origin of the noise and determine if it’s the pipes settling or perhaps something worse? It’s an undeniable feeling, and so much more scary than a sudden freight, because it festers. Well I’ve never before experienced a film that has made me feel that way while watching, never until Entrance.

Suzy is a newcomer to the big city, where its scale and isolation from thousands of strangers can make it the loneliest place in the world. She’s attractive and cool and by all appearances, she’s strong and independent until alone when the pressures strip away her armor and we see her vulnerability exposed when walking home at night, watching a scary movie, getting cat-called by a pack of dudes, even when intimate with a man. Her roommate is barely there, only a dog provides the illusion of safety. We are there as well. The HDVideo camera is never more than two feet away from her. When Suzy thinks she hears an unusual noise, so do we and we sit with her, neck strained for what seems like forever until the coast is clear. The camera’s deep focus leaves a lot of empty space that remains sharp and clear and seems intentionally composed by its operator, so we can spot the threat that seems to constantly be there, but brilliantly, never (well mostly never) materializes. All of this makes the tragic ending that much more ugly and wretched.

is a brilliant little film and deserves a bigger audience. It’s smart, subversive and very unsettling. And makes you feel like crap for being a man.

Check out the trailer below and be sure to tune in tomorrow for #8.

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.
