Local Horror Movie Makes Top 20 List
Tis the season for scary movies. The seventh installment of the iconic Halloween movie just came out prior to Halloween and won the weekend at the box office.
One locally filmed movie landed proudly on Variety.com's list of The 20 Best Horror Movies of the Last 20 Years. And it has good company. Some of the others on the list include the Academy Award-nominated Get Out from 2017, the iconic, hand-held camera brilliance of The Blair Witch Project and M. Night Shyamalan's striking debut film The Sixth Sense, both from 1999, and the smash-hit zombie comedy Shaun of the Dead from 2004. And taking its place alongside these recent greats...
2018's A Quiet Place, filmed right in the Mohawk Valley in Little Falls and other New York State locales, is listed as the #13 best movie of the last two decades.
The movie, starring married actors John Krasinski and Emily Blunt, won rave reviews with critics and audiences. The filmmakers have already announced plans for a sequel and may return to Central New York to shoot it.
The original movie brought puzzling questions based on photographs taken by a local shutterbug. We're looking forward to more mystery headed our way.
