Thanks, all who entered! There were so many good horror movies listed and defended that I couldn’t decide. So I made Intern Kathleen* do it.
And here are the winners!
It was exciting to see so many diverse movie recommendations– only one or two movies were nominated twice! Here are the four winners:
First up is Carrie, whose short comment reminded me of the horrors of VHS-only films and salivating domestic pets running amok.
I also enjoyed Seth Ellis‘s insightful suggestions, and include his conclusion for the benefit of the readers: “…the turning from the mundane to the horrifying can be very short.”
Third is Sarah Hayes, for both her reference to Otsuichi and her attention to cinematography.
Last but not least, the fourth book goes to Misty Warner, whose entry made me want to laugh and cry under a table at the same time.
Congrats to all!
*Not the Intern Kathleen from 2012-2013 who later appeared in The Battle Royale Slam Book, a new one, also named Kathleen. Must have been a demographic bulge of Kathleens about twenty years ago.
