    It’s Zach Anderson Day on Watch This List

    Thrilled to be sharing Episode 3: 70s Arthouse Horror with you all just a few days shy of October 1st. My buddy Zach is the only guest thus far who isn’t on Letterboxd, so I’ve linked his IG for those who want to check out his work. Had a blast chatting about films I’d never heard of and may not have seen otherwise.

    Check out the audio and video versions, sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.

    3/20

    Seeing this so close to Night of the Creeps highlights front and center a super stark contrast between the 70s and 80s tone. What a shift. Black Christmas nails the constant swearing tough as nails disillusionment to a tee. Reminded me of Network and The Taking of Pelham One Two Three just in the way the characters interact & behave. Don’t think it’d have been nearly as gritty crafted in another decade. Which, depending on your preferences, could be a positive or…

    “You stay here.”

    Folks, Fred Dekker had a field day with his character names. JC Hooper, Chris Romero, Detective Cameron, Sgt. Raimi, Officer Craven. Brad. The Bradster! Just to name a few. With Pumpkinhead, I had the utter joy of Kim, Joel, and Steve, and we’re back, baby, with another level of wholesome cheese. 

    First and foremost, though, who is Tom Atkins and why wasn’t he in every movie ever made? Det. Cameron’s GREAT. He and JC were…

    Pumpkinhead

    ★★★★

    “Keep away from Pumpkinhead
    Unless you’re tired of living
    His enemies are mostly dead
    He’s mean and unforgiving.
    Laugh at him and you’re undone
    But in some dreadful fashion
    Vengeance he considers fun
    And plans it with a passion.
    Time will not erase or blot
    A plot that he has brewing
    It’s when you think that he’s forgot
    He’ll conjure your undoing.
    Bolted doors and windows barred
    Guard dogs prowling in the yard
    Won’t protect you in your bed
    Nothing…

    Paths of Glory

    ★★★★★

    “Paths of Glory was the film by which Stanley Kubrick entered the ranks of great directors, never to leave them. When I interviewed Kirk Douglas in 1969, he recalled it as the summit of his acting career: ‘There's a picture that will always be good, years from now. I don't have to wait 50 years to know that; I know it now.’

    It has an economy of expression that is almost brutal; it is one of the few narrative films…
