A Working Week of Spook (Day 5)

Congratulations for having come that far! Good news too, as this is our last day, Friday, and there is light at the end of the tunnel of darkness. But don't fret because Friday doesn't normally bode well... Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but do you remember Jason?

As we reach our final destination, rest assured that we'll end this project on a high note. If you're a metal fan then this truly is your lucky day as we're gonna rock the house down!

Has a metal part just snapped? The Stepford Wives (1975)
But before coming to the surface, there is still, alas, more to explore down the bumpy roads of twisted phantasmagorical fantasy with:

Silent Hill: Down the remote outbacks, clues are there to be seen that not all is what it seems. There is such a thing as Dead Calm, but don't take our word for it... Go see for yourself! This one comes with health warnings: rusty machinery, allegedly leaked substances and cutting instruments... Whatever happens, don't trust anyone's word!

In our revisit, rest assured, no severed limbs, meat hooks or chainsaw-wielding masked American Psycho! The victims are from the man-made order and there is not one pretty sight either! If man is inherently good, how come does he allow himself to be corrupted by his inability to cope with his creations once they take over his life?

Here is, my friend, where casualties of life end up, literally littering the place. It's a tale about the unwanted, the unloved, the deranged, the dispossessed, the battered, the decayed, the socially unfit that eventually find their way down this way: Hell.

Without scaring the living daylights out of you, I am pretty sure some of these will take their revenge one day and end up reincarnated as either Freddy or Sweeney Todd!

But for now our hearfelt congratulations and we may even send you a Valentine's card and Gift if we remember! You have survived our Working Week of Spook. Happy Halloween everyone!

P.S: La Baguette Magique doesn't claim to have seen - nor does it wish to see - every single film listed in the Working Week of Spook. Having said that, its personal 3 favourites are: What Lies Beneath, The Others, and Dolores Claiborne, with a special mention to The Fog, and Fatal Desire.
