BAM’s Bong Joon-ho Film Festival Brings Korean Nightmares to Brooklyn

  Having been reared on a steady diet of sugar, John Carpenter, and Wes Craven as children, we’ve become a little desensitized to Hollywood’s often stale attempts at horror. Sure, once in a while something wicked pokes its head out of California (did you see “House of The Devil” yet?) but for real screams, we often have to turn our ... Read More »

Film + (Virtual) Travel

Lars von Trier
