5 Horror Movies You Need To Watch This Halloween On FrightPix
The Last House on the Left
If you have only seen the 2009 remake of Wes Craven’s 1972 classic, you are greatly missing out. Last House on the Left was Wes Craven’s directorial debut. Upon releasing his sexually deviant and widely banned exploitation film, Craven quickly earned his genre-guru status among horror filmmakers and moviegoers.
Alice, Sweet Alice
Director Alfred Sole’s 1976 cult classic Alice, Sweet Alice was solely responsible for his excommunication from the Catholic Church. The film itself was even seized by the UK for violating the Obscene Publications Act of 1959 and even changed it’s original title Communion, to what we now know as Alice, Sweet Alice.
Originally flopping in the box offices, David Cronenberg’s debut film Shivers may not have been an instant hit but it’s notoriously provocative and taboo overtones serve as a reminder of just how much audiences and censorship have evolved since 1975.
Dario Argento’s 1977 witchy and erotically monochromatic oeuvre Susperia, is not only a personal favorite of mine, but arguably his magnum opus as well.
Whether you were left captivated or traumatized by Sleepaway Camp, one thing remains true: every horror fan is nostalgic for scream queen Felissa Rose’s film debut.
