MEDIA APPEARANCE: David Ehrlich's IndieWire Critics Survey on October 29, 2018
Notable and notorious IndieWire film critic David Ehrlich recently put out a social media call for film critic peers to join a weekly survey to discuss movie topics, answer questions, and highlight their work. Representing Every Movie Has a Lesson, I, along with over 60 other emerging and established film critics including some of my fellow Chicago Independent Film Critics Circle members, accepted the invitation to participate. I'm honored by the opportunity, and I hope my responses are chosen each week.
THIS WEEK'S QUESTION: What horror film deserves more love, and where can people see it?
Regular readers know I’m not much of a horror guy, so this was, admittedly, a challenging question for me. Even while not treading heavily into the genre, I still run into a gem or two, and I sure found one last year in Oz Perkins’ The Blackcoat’s Daughter. It became my pick for the survey this week and I was happy to represent.
