The Black Dog Video Newsletter: The Horror, The Horror Edition!
Now that Trump has finally been imprisoned in space and the 4 year-long nightmare is over, along comes something even scarier! Here’s a list of the 20 best horror films (I love horror if you didn’t already know) that I saw in 2020! Read here if you dare.
12 Hour Shift – Comedy-horror-thriller-chiller about a drugged out nurse and her cousin trying to find a replacement kidney for an organ trafficker. Bloody hi-jinks, I presume, ensue.
Bloody Nose, Empty Pockets – Well received (many best of year lists) doc about the last dying days of a run-down bar in Vegas. Blu Ray only.
Come Away – Kind of a modern day Alice in Wonderland type of affair.
Come Play – Larry the monster comes out of your smart devices. Kind of a sequel to Come Away I assume.
Crash – David Cronenberg’s fun film about sex and car crashes gets the Criterion treatment!
Dogs Don’t Wear Pants – A fellas wife dies, so naturally he gets REALLY into the S and M scene – with various degrees of success. I liked this one!
Kid Detective – Comedy-drama-mystery about a former kid detective (whatever that is) who is now an adult and faced with his first adult case. Heard good things about this!
Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story – Amazing concert tour story from the seventies when Bob was at the height of his powers. Top notch Scorsese fun! Criterion DVD and Blu Ray.
True History of the Kelly Gang – New telling of the famous (only?) Australian gang in the old west.
Wander – Thriller with Aaron Eckhart and the always-grizzled Tommy Lee Jones about a mentally unstable private dick.
Words on Bathroom Walls – Teen tragic-romance thing about a guy, recently diagnosed with some mental illness, who falls for an inspiring smart girl. Seems that this is a genre now.
