The ’70s shocked you, the ’80s gored you . . . now the ’90s come in for the kill! Our latest Halloween spectacular celebrates an era that saw terror undergo unsettling new transformations. In the ’90s, horror movies got bigger budgets, became playfully self-aware, and even won some Oscars—but they’re just as nasty as what came before. Featuring cult heroes like John Carpenter (IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS) and Abel Ferrara (THE ADDICTION) plunging the dark depths of their uncompromising visions, established auteurs like Francis Ford Coppola (BRAM STOKER’S DRACULA) taking on the genre, and new voices like Ernest R. Dickerson (TALES FROM THE CRYPT: DEMON KNIGHT) and Antonia Bird (RAVENOUS) offering fresh perspectives on familiar tropes, this selection curated by Clyde Folley offers a hair-raising tour through an oft-overlooked decade in horror that’s ripe for rediscovery.
