The Monk

I vow that it’s a gem.


Thriller

Rod Lott
For several years, I’ve intended to read Matthew G. Lewis' 1796 novel, The Monk. I even bought a snazzy trade-paperback edition with an introduction from Stephen King. Never got around to cracking it open.

23:59

Time for so-so Singapore horror.


Horror

Rod Lott
What we call 11:59 p.m., those in the military call 23:59. What Singapore calls 23:59, we Americans call ... well, same thing: 23:59. Numbers tend to translate very well.

The Fog

For a great ghost story, bank on it.


Horror

Rod Lott
Once considered a disappointment (because anything after Halloween unfairly would be), John Carpenter's The Fog today is a genre-audience favorite — well-admired if just shy of qualifying as a modern horror classic. Its Blu-ray debut from Shout! Factory cements that.

An American Ghost Story

A pile of sheet.


Horror

Rod Lott

Here's how ludicrous the protagonist of An American Ghost Story is: He still uses American Online. Here's how ludicrous An American Ghost Story is as a whole: It uses AOL's once-ubiquitous greeting of “You've got mail!” as a scare.

Ghost Team One

A spirited spoof.


Comedy

Rod Lott
With this Halloween season being the first without a new chapter in the Paranormal Activity series, perhaps a Paranormal Activity spoof is the next best thing. There's no shortage of them, but of the roughly half-dozen I've seen, Ghost Team One is the only one worth watching.
