Debating the Scariest Movies of the Fall
It's been a landmark year for horror.
In March, Jordan Peele's Get Out earned an Oscar; a month after that, John Krasinski's A Quiet Place surprised with critical praise and box office gold; and in June, Toni Collette's performance in Hereditary earned her early Oscar buzz and went on to become A24's highest grossing title ever. But as Halloween season approaches, there are still scares left.
Patrick Shanley, host of The Hollywood Reporter's genre video series Heat Vision Breakdown, recently assembled a panel to take a look forward to the upcoming Halloween reboot as well as the prestige horror remake Suspiria, which is lending credence to the notion that we are living in the age of elevated horror.
The panelists, who came together at YouTube Space LA, include Yvette Nicole Brown (Community), Kyle Buchanan (pop culture reporter, New York Times), Roth Cornet (editor-in-chief, Screen Junkies News) and Rebecca Sun (senior reporter, THR). The conversation was part of a larger panel discussion on film in general (you can watch more from the panelist here).
