The Last Knock

 

What does 2017 have in store for the horror fan? Well, Billy and Jonny take a look at the year ahead to uncover upcoming macabre movies from The Blackcoats Daughter and XX to Psychopaths and Rock, Paper, Dead. But wait! There’s more! The year will bring many a sequel as well as remakes, and we’ll look at them today.

Billy apologizes for the occasional cough and for feeling a bit out of it – thanks to the damn flu. But the show must go on, and Billy’s happy he wasn’t patient zero for the zombie virus.

THE LAST KNOCK presents: Exorcizing Possessions

The Last Knock

As with any other horror sub-genre, tropes abound, and exorcism and possession are no different. How often have we seen the possessed girl or woman bound to a bed to endure torture from demonic forces and patriarchy alike? But we’ll take a closer look at those tales that move beyond copying William Friedkin’s renowned film The Exorcist. Get ready to dive into the bodies (or something like that) of different kinds of possessions and exorcisms, from Session 9 and Oculus, to 1920, The Entity and more. Growling demons and puke fetishists need not apply.

THE LAST KNOCK presents: Macabre Milestone: May (2002)

The Last Knock

At the beginning of the new millennium, director Lucky McKee wowed audiences with a phenomenal, quirky, independent horror. Star Angela Bettis played May, who longed for a connection with a boyfriend. Her performance was so heralded, critic Roger Ebert petitioned the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to nominate Bettis for a Lead Actress Oscar. The film also included stellar acting from Anna Faris, as well as Jeremy Sisto, James Duval, Nichole Hiltz, and the celebrated Ken Davitian, with music from The Breeders. And if you think this is some cheesy horror/romance, you are dead wrong because this brilliant tale goes to much greater depths.
