i clicked to see Get Out at #1 and there it was. i'm glad to see Drag Me to Hell on the list but really it should have been higher. and it seems like my bad that i never saw WWZ.

The 20 Best Horror Films of the Last 20 Years

1. Get Out (2017)
2. Audition (1999)
3. The Blair Witch Project (1999)
4. The Sixth Sense (1999)
5. What Lies Beneath (2000)
6. Hostel: Part II (2007)
7. World War Z (2013)
8. Hereditary (2018)
9. Shaun of the Dead (2004)
10.  Insidious (2010)
11. Ringu (1998)
12. Planet Terror (20070
13. A Quiet Place (2018)
14. Let Me In (2010)
15. The Descent (2005)
16. Paranormal Activity 3 (2011)
17. The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence) (2011)
18. The Witch (2015)
19. Drag Me to Hell (2009)
20. The Babadook (2014)

I feel like most of the films on that top 20 list at least have a case to be made, but including What Lies Beneath and World War Z is nutso. In a world where It Follows and Martyrs exist, no less.
First things first, I'm surrealist

Finally caught up with John Carpenter's Christine. How come nobody talks about it? Genuinely, a masterpiece. I've always liked Carpenter, but holy cow. Wringing a really fun, entertaining, and tense movie out of that premise should warrant an Academy Award. It's a lesson in what directing actually is.

Watched this on Netflix last night. Really well-executed and sort of as realistic as possible within the confines of the fantastical scenario that plays out. There are a handful of excellent scenes between actors, including Melora Walters, who plays the lead’s mother. I’d go as far as to call it her best work outside of Magnolia, especially during an exchange that occurs two-thirds of the way though and recalls a certain panic-attack-inducing segment from S01E09 of “The Girlfriend Experience”. The choice of expression on her face is quite something. I’ll never forget it. 

The movie is written by Isa Mazzei, a former cam girl, and directed by Daniel Goldhaber, who apparently also used to direct her online porn, so there’s a definite authenticity to the portrayal of this world.

Madeline Brewer is tour de force. She goes all out, shockingly so. I feel like this movie crossed some sort of unspoken taboo threshold, and she completely brought her A-game to a part that must have required a great leap of faith.

It won’t leave you pondering The Big Questions, but the logistical detail put into the screen interactions and the insight brought to the setting imbues it with a realism that makes you feel dirty in a way that’s almost the cyber-equivalent of hanging out in a seedy 1970s version of Times Square. 

Editing of the online interactions achieves an absolutely hypnotic rhythm, too. Honestly don’t think I’ve seen digital exchanges portrayed so well, before.

Also notable, as some others have pointed out, for its total lack of judgment of the profession and main character. The onus of shame for partaking in these transactions is put squarely on the consumers, which you really, really feel.

Anyway, worth checking out.
