New ✝︎✝︎✝︎'s and Best Horror of 2020


New Crosses! No word that I see of a release date yet, but what a way to round out the year!

Favorite Horror Films of 2020

Over on The Horror Vision, we did our "Favorite Horror of 2020" episode this weekend, and as I type this the episode should be hitting all major streaming platforms. Here's an embed of the youtube, although this and the IGTV version are considerably truncated for time compared to what you can stream from Spotify and the like. Either way, here are our picks:



This was one I had not even heard of until I watched it on Christmas Eve. HOLY cow. This one would make a fantastic double feature with Jeremy Saulnier's Hold the Dark (time for a rewatch!), there's such a stoic reverence for violence. Easily slid into my top ten of the year, as evidenced by the episode of The Horror Vision above. This is director Shawn Linden's third feature, and you can bet I'll be seeking out his first two films - The Good Lie, and Nobody - in short order. 


Howard Shore - Crash OST
Type O Negative - Life is Killing Me
Vince Guaraldi Trio - A Charlie Brown Christmas
Emma Ruth Rundle and Thou - Hollywood (pre-release single)
Emma Ruth Rundle and Thou - May Our Chambers Be Full
Queens of the Stone Age - Songs for the Deaf
Electric Wizard - Dopethrone
Doves - The Universal Want
Nat "King" Cole - The Christmas Song
The Blueflowers - Relapse EP
✝︎✝︎✝︎ - The Beginning of The End (pre-release single) 
Calexico - Seasonal Shift
Jóhann Jóhannsson - Mandy OST
Black Sabbath - Master of Reality
The Blueflowers - Relapse EP



Being that the standard reading of this card is the beginning of a new project, and I'm in the midst of wrapping one and finishing another, I'm not quite sure how to take this. There's also the "Big influences" reading, and although I'm not sure how to interpret that on a surface level, I suppose I should be on the lookout for inspiration.
