The Terminator of the Screw

These are a few of my favorite things: Mackenzie Davis, tweeds, old-fashioned bookshelves, little goth boys stomping on half-dead fish heads, long coats in autumnal colors, the little girl from The Florida Project, Henry James, milky baths, Floria Sigismondi the incredibly cool director of The Runaways and that NYT Video starring Goth Timmy, monsters, contemptible housekeepers, overhead shots of automobiles stolen straight from The Shining, the malignant scribblings of a deranged mind...

Here are a few of my least favorite things: 
motherfucking spiders in my mouth.

So I'm torn! On the one hand, everything, and on the other, that shot of that goddamned spider which is going to give me nightmares for weeks. Below y'all watch the just released trailer for The Turning -- a movie we've been wanting ever since it was announced a couple of years back -- and let me know in the comments your own particular thoughts...

The Turning is out on January 24th.

So we are going to have 2 new versions of Turn of the Screw-this and the new season of The Haunting of Hill House, or whatever they are calling it for the 2nd season? Just curious about this trend where an old story suddenly becomes a hot property again, and simultaneously like 5 new versions of it come out at once.
