So it's Halloween morning, and tonight you're going to be running around getting your kids ready for Halloween, going to friend's homes, getting sick on candy. And you might make a stop at the video store to get something to watch this evening as well. What to get, what to get?
Retrocrush picks the 100 Greatest Horror Movie Performaces. I always hate the "Top 100 List." Top 25 and Top 10, those are fine, but once you start listing 100 of anything you're bound to start listing things just to be "complete" instead of really getting down to the nitty gritty. But there are some good picks here among the more questionable ones (Jason in the Friday the 13th films?): Sissy Spacek in Carrie, Anthony Perkins in Psycho, Kathy Bates in Misery, Sam Neill in In the Mouth of Madness, Bruce Campbell in the Evil Dead flicks, and Robert Mitchum in Night of the Hunter, to name a few.
They also cite Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter in Silence of the Lambs, though I always liked Brian Cox's interpretation as in Manhunter a lot more.
