As horror fans, we’re used to seeing our favorite movies passed by at the Academy Awards. Oscars are very rarely rewarded to the films that scare us, but on this week’s episode of Nightmare on Film Street we are talking about two movies that could not be ignored. Join Kim and Jon as they discuss William Friedkin’s eternally terrifying The Exorcist (1973) and Jonathan Demme’s creeptacular The Silence of The Lambs (1991).
WHAT’S KEEPING US CREEPY?
After discovering that Jon has NEVER seen The Wicker Man, both the original and the infamous Rage-Cage-Remake, Kim immediately made him watch both, upending his entire worldview. And of course, Happy Death Day 2U hits theatres this week, just in time for Valentine’s Day. We don’t get a chance to talk about the new sequel at the top of this week’s episode but we will have a full Drive Home From The Drive-In review dropping on Patreon this weekend. We’ve also begun archiving some of the early NOFS episodes. If you haven’t yet
suffered through had a chance to listen to our humble beginnings, they will also be available for download at Patreon.com/NightmareOnFilmStreet.
