You’re Next is one hell of a ride! I just rewatched it for the first time in a while. I had forgotten how much I liked it. Director Adam Wingard takes the standard “isolated house in the woods” trope and gives it new life.
The other night I was looking for something to watch and I came across The Raven with Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff. What a great movie! This isn’t Edgar Allen Poe’s Raven. It’s completely different. I’m ashamed to admit that I had never seen it before. (Please don’t yell at me). So I got myself comfortable and hit play. I can’t believe that I’ve missed this one.
Everyone is afraid of something – Whether they admit it or not. Spiders, snakes, heights, and clowns. Things like that. But those things don’t interfere with their lives. When they see something that they’re afraid of, they react for maybe a couple of minutes – then they move along. But that isn’t always the case.
Can a movie be cursed? There are a bunch of movies that have had horrible accidents on set, and unfortunate deaths after filming. In reality, accidents do happen, and people die every day.

On October 31, 1981, Johnny Frank Garret broke into a convent in Texas. The convent was across the street from his house. He raped and murdered seventy-six-year-old Sister Tadea Benz. He was arrested, convicted, and sentenced to death by lethal injection. Garret was seventeen years old when he murdered her.
