One might wonder how we can narrow down the greatest horror films to a select few when the selection is so vast. How to we narrow this number down to a top five, a top ten, or even a top twenty when there are so many great horror films out there to choose from? This isn’t something that’s easy to do, in my opinion it’s next to impossible, but many have done it. I am going to attempt to do it here myself. I can’t narrow down the best of the best. What I can do is name three films have an equal amount of respect and appreciation for. I won’t be naming one over the other, or say one is lower than another, rather I’ll just talk about their strengths, their themes, and just talk about why these movies need to be seen especially around Halloween.
Anyone who knows a great deal about the violence committed against Transgender women of color, know about Gwen Amber Rose Araujo. For those who don’t, let’s take some time to talk about her.
A little bit of everything has been written about Michael Jackson both in the fifty years he spent with us, as well as in the eleven years he’s been gone; everything from an alleged attempted purchase of the Elephant Man’s bones, sleeping in a hypobaric chamber, and the worst of them all, accusations of pedophilia. Where the latter differs dramatically from the former, is the truth that there is little to no real evidence when you run through the facts of the allegations with a fine toothed comb. So, why did allegations of pedophilia even come up you might ask? How did it get as far as becoming public and open to media scrutiny? How did it all come to the point where there was even a trial? And how did all of this ultimately, lead to Michael Jackson’s death? Much of this is speculation, my own personal opinion, with all the information that is out for the public to see. All I can hope with writing this, is you’ll let it sit in your head for a while, make up your own minds, rather than have the story the media has tried to brainwash you with cloud your judgement.
The short original Netflix documentary “A Love Song For Latasha”. In its twenty minute running time, what you get is a powerful, heart breaking look at the young girl, who at fifteen years old, had her life cut tragically short. While it would have been easy to focus entirely on the circumstances surrounding her untimely death, what we got with this short film was an insight into the young girl herself.
