I saw three different narrative features this past week at Los Angeles Film Festival that were set in the Silverlake area of LA. I live in the area, and it was cool to see familiar spots captured through different eyes.
I'm sure we're all sick and tired of seeing countless "scariest movies of all time" lists every Halloween. By limiting the list to the last twenty years, we automatically discount most of the staples that usually fill up such lists.
This week's subject is The Wolfman, starring Benicio Del Toro and Anthony Hopkins. The film is of course a remake of The Wolfman (1941), starring Lon Chaney Jr., which immortalized the werewolf legend on film.
