Telluride Horror Show 2017: Second Wave of Films

The event that is basically our Christmas Day is coming up around the corner, but not soon enough (because it's not tomorrow). We'll be heading to Telluride Horror Show on Friday, October 13th. Yeah, that's right...Telluride Horror Show landed on Friday the 13th this year. It doesn't get any better than that! A couple of weeks back, we previewed some films we were looking forward to seeing. Here's the second set of films we can't wait to check out!

Desolation

Desolation follows a woman and her son and best friend as they go into the forest to spread her husband's ashes. They are soon stocked by a mysterious hiker, and things quickly escalate.

This film's premise sounds interesting and teases that it is hiding a decent twist. The seemingly realistic directing and setting always helps to pull me in as well.

Housewife

Housewife follows a woman who tries to live with the trauma of seeing her father and sister murdered by her mother when she was younger. Now experiencing terrible visions and losing her grip on reality, she becomes a person of interest for a mysterious psychic.

This film is from the same director that brought us the gruesome Baskin, and it appears to have some grotesque violence of its own on display. This has more of a traditional 60s/70s horror feel to it, and I'm excited to see what it has in store.

Trench 11

This film follows a shell-shocked soldier in World War I who is sent on a mission to stop a German experiment that is rumored to turn the tide of the war in their favor.

There isn't much to go on with this film, but the mystery of the premise makes it all the more intriguing to me. Could it simply be a visceral, gruesome, dark tale on war? Or is there something more sinister and paranormal afoot? I can't wait to find out!

Psychopaths

Psychopaths follows a serial killer's soul, as it travels from vessel to vessel enacting violence during a full moon.

The premise almost implies a dark comedy tone, but I could also see this being a gruesome slasher as well.

I can't wait for THS in a couple of weeks! Hope some of you will be able to join us for some great horror film fun!
