Stupidly watched Rob Zombie’s Halloween. Besides the silly number of boob shots and over-the-top violence (the original Michael could just pick someone up and choke them; he also didn’t feel the need to stab them to a wall), modern horrors just don’t have the same style. No elegance.
Remember Ellen Burstyn’s fabbo cocktail party at the beginning of The Exorcist? Even the priests were swell.
Jack Torrance and the twins also have a certain flair, don’t you think?
