Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy: If you are looking for a three-hour documentary covering the making of the Nightmare on Elm Street movies, plus Freddy v. Jason, this will fulfill all those needs. Spoiler: Yes, they knew Nightmare on 2 was super gay.

Ant Farm by Simon Rich. To be clear, this is a book. Yes, I read a book. He’s really quite funny, but much of this follows the same formula. It’s like drafts he submitted to McSweeney’s.

The Signal: Good concept, I suppose, but real ham-fisted ending that renders the entire movie dumb. This Brenton Thwaites boy has nice eyebrows.

The Town That Dreaded Sundown: not just a remake, but a meta-remake in which the original film exists within this remake’s universe. Also includes a death by trombone scene.

The Canal: this ended up on my best-of ist, but barely. I usually don’t like supernatural-based horror films, but this one was pretty damn good. Something about things living within the walls of a house freaked me out. That ending though? Yikes.
