Top 10 Home Invasion Thrillers!
Have you guys seen the commercials for that new Ethan Hawke movie THE PRUGE? I can't front, that shite looks pretty decent, if for no other reason than being a welcomed addition to one of my favorite subgenres, the home invasion thriller. I don't know about you, but the plausible idea of someone - a real human being - entering your home when you least expect it, likely with deleterious intent, I find flat out terrifying. Shoot, I still jump when I round a corner and see a roommate I didn't think was home...never mind a total stranger breaking in with murder on the mind. Fuck all that. Anyway, THE PURGE looks like it has a futuristic sci-fi element thrown in to set it apart, but even so, you can't help but think about the number of flicks that inspired it. At least we can't. Enter this week's Horror Ten Spot to see what I mean!
