I Wrote These Things: Weeks Ending 10/29


I did a big ol' cover story about what draws us to scary movies, and keeps us coming back.

I wrote a New York Film Festival wrap-up, including capsule reviews of Manchester By the Sea, 20th Century Women, and Toni Erdmann.

I reviewed Moonlight, one of the year's best films.

And I reviewed The Handmaiden, which is sexy and terrific and great.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, on the other hand, is about as generic as action movies get.

But at least it's better than Inferno. I did a stunt review, from the persona of Into the Inferno director Werner Herzog, because why not.

For Second Glance, I looked at David Byrne's wonderful True Stories.

Halloween listicle alert! Some of my favorite horror movie performances.

Halloween service journalism alert! A big ol' guide to the best horror movies on your streaming service.

And, of course, DVD/VOD guides for 10/18 and 10/25.
