Horror is not necessarily my favorite genre, but when done artfully, it has a lot to offer even someone like me.
The most modern of the directors on view is the impressive American independent Larry Fessenden, who collects four of his features – “No Telling,” “Wendigo,” “Habit” and “The Last Winter” – in Scream Factory’s appropriately named “The Larry Fessenden Collection.”
A classic of Japanese filmmaking is Masaki Kobayaski’s haunting “Kwaidan” a quartet of ghost stories presented by the Criterion Collection in the original three-hour cut never before released in this country.
One of the true landmarks of horror filmmaking is Lon Chaney’s silent masterpiece “The Phantom of the Opera,” presented by Kino Classics with all kinds of special added features. This is one for the ages. – Kenneth Turan
