Multcolib Staff Picks: Best horror, 2013
Annotation:Two type-A personalities drive this story that at first seems like a psychological thriller. Soon you realize that Frank and Graham are headed for a seething, almost supernatural battle of mental fortitude...with fangs.
Annotation:While the story of a man dealing with his depressed, suicidal wife as well as his own demons may seem like a downer of a read, it is poetic and singularly beautiful in its depiction of a man trying to keep his family and his own sanity together in the foggy North Carolina wilderness.
Annotation:Before cloning was ‘cool,’ there were a couple of great popcorn clone films that produced entertaining what-if’s: 1978’s “The Boys From Brazil” and “Clonus: The Parts Horror” from 1979. Girard's inventive horror/sci-fi mix could be the next great horror disguised as thriller movie if it wanted to be.
Annotation:A sumptuous, grimacing read, this slithery narrative takes you from London to France and wraps up in the Sonoran desert. You’ll never again visit Bisbee without looking over your shoulder.
