Creature Week - The Hell Born
I'm not usually drawn to these creature films as much as others (though they rank higher than ghost stories in my books). Often I find these films rely a lot on the premise of belief for their scares. After first viewing it at the age of ten, I found The Exorcist, laughable. It is fantastically written, and well executed, but the scares just fell on deaf ears with me. But just as my love of other bad horror movies provailed, I still can find enjoyment in these films. But it is truly my love of the creatures than the genre. Simple possession just won't do.
Midnight Meat Train
Dante's Divine Comedy
If we are talking about hell-borne creatures and literature I have to at least mention the Inferno. Not a lot, just a mention...that is all.
