Day 23: Today's films may seem a little counter intuitive to horror purists, but hear me out. I watched Tim Burton's "The Nightmare Before Christmas", my favorite British horror film "The Wicker Man" & John Carpenter's "Assault on Precinct 13." I realize that "The Nightmare Before Christmas" is a stop-motion animation "kids" film, but I feel that it captures a lot of the Hallowe'en spirit in it & that Tim Burton & Henry Selick both very much had the holiday on their minds while producing the film. "Assault on Precinct 13" may seem more of an action film, but I contend that it exploits the horror of urban blight & feelings of isolation that come from living in large cities. As for "The Wicker Man", well, this film is simply amazing. I watched it today with commentary from Edward Woodward, Christopher Lee & the director Robin Hardy, which was delightful. Old British men reminiscing on a something they did 30 some years ago is always entertaining, be it film or football or what have you.
