Based on a novel of the same nam... read more

Slant’s 100 Greatest Horror Films – 2018 Edition (100 movies items)

"Detective thrillers often concern contests of male ego, involving brilliant investigators who confront physically superior and equally brilliant psychopaths. Often lost among such face-offs are considerations of the lives that are destroyed and ruined over the course of the narratives, as these thrillers exist to evoke and satisfy our own fears and resentments.
