Torture porn you can see in the usual theaters. This festival, now barreling into one of its strongest weekends, offers everything else you could want: Thrillers (Dario Argento’s The Bird With the Crystal Plumage); mutant updates (South Korean smash The Host); meta slasher flicks (French indie High Tension); and good ol’ fashioned horror movies (1977 classic The Hills Have Eyes and its surprisingly good 2006 remake). And if you must, Netflix the Scary Movie series.
