If horror films have taught me anything over the last few years, is that evil is everywhere, and can infect anyone. And that’s what makes a good horror film frightening.
On one hand, you’ve got serial killers, relentless human monsters, dream demons, and the undead. Or, you can go for something a little more creepy and have your horror movie villain a killer doll, a ghost, or something equally frightening. But, what if the bad guy in your scary movie is a thing? Is it still scary?
I’m sure the intent behind these movies was a good one, but the execution… not so much. I’m not really convinced that I should be worried about a possessed lamp or a bloodthirsty clothes press.
What do you think?
