Horror Films: Back From The Dead?

I rarely go to see horror films in cinemas anymore. The experience can’t compare with seeing them in the gloriously seedy Times Square of the 1970s and 1980s and the sense of danger therein. (My friend Dee Sushi and I once waited online for a midnight showing of some bloodfest. We heard gunshots coming from inside the theater. Did the crowd outside flee? No way! This was what the horror-movie experience was in those days.) I may, however, have to sneak back into a cinema next year to see Jamie Lee Curtis return to the “Halloween” franchise. You object that she was killed off back in 2002? To quote Freddy Krueger to Zsa Zsa Gabor in one of those “Nightmare on Elm Street” flicks: “Who gives a fuck what you think?”
