September is upon us, summer is slowly drifting away for another year and the countdown clock that silently ticks away at the top of this very page now tells me it is only 56 days until October 31st 2014.
To celebrate the journey toward Halloween I’m going to do something I’ve wanted to attempt since I first started writing here on Halloween Love … put together a definitive list of my personal favorite horror movie moments and scenes. I hope you will agree with some, maybe raise an eyebrow at others and fingers crossed a few will be pleasant surprises.
56 : Se7en 1995 : The Sloth Victim Wakes Up.
Every murder scene that Mills and Somerset enter is brilliantly dark and gruesome with some seriously impressive set design, but the discovery of the Sloth victim is the moment this movie shows you just how disturbing it’s prepared to get. Strapped to a bed and surrounded by nothing but used syringes and air fresheners, ‘Victor’ has been at the mercy of John Doe for an entire year. The horrifically decayed, mutilated and emaciated body looks like it has been dead for quite some time … Then Victor coughs!
This is the first of two entries on my list featuring moments from David Fincher’s serial killer masterpiece. It is without doubt, one of my favorite movies of all time … Style, story, pace, acting, scares, twists … It just all comes together to create something quite special.
