Without further ado, here’s the band’s Top 10 Favorite Horror Films with a few comments as to why they were chosen:

The Exorcist – Saw this movie alone when I was like 8 years old. Scarred for life! This is the only really scary movie ever made.

The Exorcism of Emily Rose – I woke up at 2am home alone and this movie was playing…creeped the hell out of me.

Halloween – Love how Rob Zombie remade it. Well done!

Nightmare on Elm Street – CLASSIC… I wonder if Tom Green based the title “Freddy Got Fingered” off of this movie…ha.

The Strangers – This movie is great for a date night. Your girl will be all up on your business in no time.

Vacancy – Kate Beckinsale is a bombshell!

Hostel – Sickest concept…in a bad way! But I think that’s what the director was going for…so well done.

The Hills Have Eyes – One of the most fucked up films I’ve ever seen in my life.

The Devil’s Rejects – Sick and twisted…Rob Zombie should be monitored on a daily basis. He probably kills people.

From Dusk Till Dawn – George Clooney, Tarantino, Cheech!!!!!! Watching this movie is always a good idea! Classic!

Thelma Is Fantastic and Now You Can Watch the Opening Scene



One of this year’s most beautiful and subdued horror films is Joachim Trier’s Thelma (review), which opens in Los Angeles tonight. To give you a bit of what the film is like, The Orchard have released the opening scene, which shows a man and his daughter hunting in the bleak Norwegian winter. When they come across a young deer, the true intentions of this trip become apparent…

Having seen Thelma, I can tell you that it’s truly something special. It’s a slow burn, to be certain, but it plays out gorgeously, resulting in a film that has yet to leave my mind.

Locations and tickets for Thelma can be found here.

Thelma, a shy young student, has just left her religious family in a small town on the west coast of Norway to study at a university in Oslo. While at the library one day, she experiences a violent, unexpected seizure. Soon after, she finds herself intensely drawn toward Anja, a beautiful young student who reciprocates Thelma’s powerful attraction. As the semester continues, Thelma becomes increasingly overwhelmed by her intense feelings for Anja – feelings she doesn’t dare acknowledge, even to herself – while at the same time experiencing even more extreme seizures. As it becomes clearer that the seizures are a symptom of inexplicable, often dangerous, supernatural abilities, Thelma is confronted with tragic secrets of her past, and the terrifying implications of her powers.
