Read an article in VANITY FAIR about the sea-change in horror movies when Vincent Price flicks crumbled in the face of real-life Vietnam images and the post-war, grisly new sensibility ushered in by Night of the Living Dead. Got a kick out of the part where a famous slasher-film director rolled his eyes at the whole notion of the Final Girl being a virgin because girls who do have sex must be brutally killed off as punishment. He retorts, and I paraphrase: “Girls who have sex… are not paying attention.”
So pay attention, people. Especially if the man behind the curtain is wearing a hockey mask and/or carrying a chainsaw.
It’s those little things.
