Guest Post: Dive into Horror with T. Frohock

David Annandale tagged me recently for my four favorite horror films, and I lost the tweet. Then Kathy said I could write about anything, so I'm going to kill two birds with one stone and go with my four favorite horror films.

Here they are:

Freaks (1932) -- This is a classic. If you've never seen Freaks, you have to watch it just once. In Freaks, the circus performers, who have physical deformities, are honorable and good, but the two people who are physically beautiful are rotten down to the cores of their souls. The original version of Freaks was considered to be too shocking to be released and has since been lost. The version you can buy now is still very edgy for the time period and has some genuine moments of horror. 

The Ring (2002) -- Japanese horror at its finest. I saw the 1998 remake, and it was chilling. This is a cursed videotape with a ghost that comes for you. I loved it. The movie made me jump and squeal, and I'm pretty jaded about horror flicks.

Timecrimes (2007) -- This is a time loop story and the less you know going in, the better. Hector (Karra Elejalde) goes to investigate a young woman, who is disrobing in the woods near his house, but before he reaches her, he is attacked by a knife-wielding man, whose face is hidden by bandages. He runs away, and finds himself at a mysterious compound where a scientist gives him a place to hide and sends him back in time one hour.

This whole thing could get tiresome quick, except that Elejalde does a superb job of making Hector just a little bit more unhinged and evil in each subsequent scene.

Black Swan (2010) -- this is psychological horror at its finest. How far should an artist go in order to express her art? Natalie Portman gives a gripping portrayal of a ballerina, who has become unhinged by her competitive nature. This is probably one of my favorite movies of all time. You will never watch ballet the same way again.

What are your four favorite horror films?

The fate of mankind has nothing to do with mankind …

Born of an angel and a daimon, Diago Alvarez is a singular being in a country torn by a looming civil war and the spiritual struggle between the forces of angels and daimons. With allegiance to no one but his partner Miquel, he is content to simply live in Barcelona, caring only for the man he loves and the music he makes.  Yet, neither side is satisfied to let him lead this domesticated life and, knowing they can’t get to him directly, they do the one thing he’s always feared.

They go after Miquel.

Now, in order to save his lover’s life, he is forced by an angel to perform a gruesome task: feed a child to the daimon Moloch in exchange for a coin that will limit the extent of the world’s next war.  The mission is fraught with danger, the time he has to accomplish it is limited…and the child he is to sacrifice is the son Diago never knew existed.

A lyrical tale in a world of music and magic, T. Frohock’s IN MIDNIGHT’S SILENCE shows the lengths a man will go to save the people he loves, and the sides he’ll choose when the sidelines are no longer an option.

    Some of the most recent nuhmbers show that just over 46% of Americans use thee internet in order to file
    their taxes on a regular basis. ISPs usually offer competitive rates,
    so you shouldn't expect much discrepancy between these.
