Like his cinema, Tobe Hooper’s voice was that kind of resonant, droll, molasses-like drawl that you never forget. I’ve only heard it in a handful of commentaries and interviews but that’s a voice that impresses with clarity. It’s this sort of tendency that inflects much of what BGH staff came to recall or find in revisiting Hooper’s work. His are the types of films you remember your first time seeing. Genre defining and boundary busting, his earlier work only grows in its revolutionary esteem.

Following the news on Sunday that horror maestro George A. Romero had passed a group of BGH staff felt compelled to share some thoughts and experiences with the filmmaker’s work. As expected we remember his iconoclastic and prescient approach to the genre while also contemplating how his films function like a scrapbook clocking our horror education.

When it comes to watching either version of The Beguiled, whether it is Don Siegel’s adaptation from 1971 or Sophia Coppola’s vision of the novel, I recommend having few expectations.

Turning the page on what can only be described as a freakshow of year, we here at BGH have taken some time to reflect on the horrors that shaped 2016. Cinematic horrors, of course. We can't even bear to look at a newspaper these days!
