    A New Age of Horror?


    Sheila writes: Over at The A.V. Club, Noel Murray has a very interesting essay analyzing current-day horror films called "The New Age of Unbeatable Horror". Murray writes, "It’s hard to say whether we’re on the verge of a new wave in horror right now, but on the one-two-three trend-scale, it at least qualifies as a coincidence that the two best-reviewed thrillers of the past two years—The Babadook and It Follows—are both relentlessly creepy films about a supernatural evil that can’t be stopped. Are we one movie away from the tipping-point? And if so, what does this say about our collective apocalyptic anxiety in the mid-2010s?" Take a look!
