It’s a Horror to Know You: Jason S.!
1. What is the first film that ever scared you?
Tourist Trap (the scene when the girl is smothered in plaster haunted me for years), This House Possessed (fuck PSYCHO, the shower scene in this traumatized me), and The Day After (the film takes place where I grew up so it just made it all the more real).
2. What is the last film that scared you?
Not really scared me but left a huge impression on me:
The Strangers–grim and unrelenting.
Eden Lake–see above.
Cold Fish–based on a true crime story that rocked Japan.
Kidnapped–house invasion flick from Spain.
Snowtown–another true crime film, this one from Australia.
3. Name three Horror movies that you believe are underrated.
The Haunting of Julia— beautiful performance from Mia Farrow. Needs to be seen in widescreen.
Through the Looking Glass— dismissed as just a porn film, this is one of the most horrific things I have ever seen.
Naked Vengeance— basically a remake of I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE, everything is taken up a notch from the rape to the revenge. Actress Deborah Tranelli is phenomenal (and even sings on the soundtrack!)
4. Name three horror movies that you enjoy against your better judgment.
Mother of Tears–Not the final “Mothers” film we wanted but damn I love this one
Murder Rock–Fuci’s dance/slasher film. Not a lot of love for this one but I enjoy it a lot
Witchery–Linda Blair gets possessed again.
