Horror Cinema–Noroi: The Curse
I was mesmerized by Kōji Shiraishi’s 2005 Noroi: The Curse from beginning to end. Told through a compilation of television shows and interviews and documentary-style footage, it tells a spooky ghost story in a very modern way.

Horror Cinema Trivia: Black Christmas (1974)
In 1986, Olivia Hussey met producers for the film Roxanne (1987), since they were interested in casting her for the title role. Roxanne co-star Steve Martin met her and said, “Oh my God, Olivia, you were in one of my all-time favorite films.” Thinking it was Romeo and Juliet (1968), Olivia was surprised to find out it was actually Black Christmas (1974). Steve Martin claimed he had seen it around 27 times.
