Classic Review – The Town that Dreaded Sundown (1976)

Jordan and Eddie (The Movie Guys)

The Town that Dreaded Sundown advertising

The Town that Dreaded Sundown

Directed by Charles B. Pierce (The Legend of Boggy Creek)

Starring Ben Johnson, Andrew Prine, Dawn Wells

Review by Jordan

The Town that Dreaded Sundown is a standout thriller with historical significance than employs an assortment of filmic techniques with varying levels of success. There are unexpected bouts of slow-motion shooting and attempts at slapstick humour that show its age, but overshadowing these strange inclusions is a feeling of anarchic terror born from a villain whose identity is as much a mystery as his motives.

Released in 1976, two years after Black Christmas introduced the slasher and two years before Halloween defined it, Charles B. Pierce’s film is lawless in its direction and plot, frequently breaking the soon-to-be defined rules of suspense and melding horror with a period setting and documentary like narration to accompany it’s intent on being based on a true American case.

I read the book before I saw the movie. While the movie was pretty faithful to the book and followed along pretty well; however, it was of course a little different. The movie is always different from the book so it’s nothing new anyways.

I thought the movie was really good but did I…

Movie Review: Sicario

rambling rooby

Sicario (sɪˈkɛərɪəʊ) | Spanish | Assassin. Hitman. Hired Killer.

Sicario - Background

In Sicario, Emily Blunt plays Kate Macer, an idealistic FBI agent who is enlisted by an elected government task force to aid in the escalating war against drugs at the border area between the U.S. and Mexico.  Sicario is an intense, relentlessly paced and thrilling look at the American war on drugs and murky US-Mexico border politics. French Canadian director Denis Villeneuve’s film is absolutely riveting, with amped up tension and thrilling action pitted against an air of paranoia and the grisly reality of drug cartel violence.

Villeneuve is on a hot streak (Prisoners), and has crafted yet another fine thriller with fantastic performances from his cast. Emily Blunt is a force to be reckoned with as Kate Macer. She’s a competent leader, self-assured and confident – Blunt’s portrayal of Kate maintains her “Full Metal Bitch” title from
