I have the knack of finding some of the strangest “horror” movies ever made and Dead of Night (1945) fits quite nicely into the slot. It’s a British anthology film with an Alfred Hitchcock/Twilight Zone feel. Not all the stories in this film are frightening, well, actually, none of them are, but that’s not to…

Remember in Insidious: Chapter 3 where Elise Rainier didn’t want to do readings anymore because her husband had died?

Why would a werewolf decapitate someone? Why is it underneath the dude’s greenhouse? Why does Marty stare strangely at his friend when he doesn’t leave the park? Does he know what’s going to happen?
