‎31 Days of Horror: Day 9: “Curtains” (1983)

I’m breaking the rule of only watching NEW films and checking out a classic that I haven’t watched in far too long. I’ll be upfront and honest, this movie should be a mess (Google the behind the scenes production problem for more details). The fact that it isn’t is a miracle in and of itself but the fact that the movie is a damn near masterpiece? Well, let’s just say that the slasher gods must have been looking down on this movie because it is simply incredible. Love the twist at the end, love the figure skater who gets killed by the masked man in the old hag mask, and love the final chase in the old prop room. Sure it isn’t entirely believable and there is a bit of logic that must be stretched thin but that doesn’t stop this movie from being one of the best of its kind.
