Top 10 War-Set Horror Flicks!
Heads-up! What's the last good war-set horror flick you saw? The least really good one? Not sure about you, but I've always held a strong affinity for horror films that take place in the already hellish landscape of war. Or, if not directly, the kinds that deal with the postpartum psychological ramifications of close combat. I mean, most straight-up war pictures are horrifying enough...just demoralizing beyond belief. So when the added supernatural flavor is peppered in, be it in the mold of zombified and lycanthropic soldiers, prisoners of war subjected to torturous barbarism, infantrymen forced into cannibalism, etc...shit always comes off as doubly daunting. Anyway, with the recent arrival of the trailer for THE GUEST, not to mention news of Lee Pace signing on to star in a flick called PRISONERS OF WAR, it looks like the war-horror subgenre is on the comeback. So hey, let's help these mofos sharpen the artillery. Lock and load y'all...it's time for our Top 10 War-Set Horror Flicks!
