The rag & bone gang were asked what their favourite scary movie is and the responses ranged from old-school classics (Halloween, Nightmare on Elm Street, The Omen) to black comedy (Hocus Pocus, So I Married An Axe Murder) to downright hilarious (Mariah Carey’s frighteningly bad Glitter).
For those who fancy a freaky Friday, here are some more rag & bone recommendations…
Brooke LaGrand (Assistant Pattern Maker), Edyta Krynska (Head of Shipping/Logistics), and Jessica Meany (Sample Fabric/Trim Buyer) all agreed that this Jack Nicholson horror stands the test of time. “It’s literally the best movie ever,” says Jessica, “I have this photo framed in my room.”
Julie O’Hara (Head of International Sales/Visual) and Catherine Eberhardt (PD/Design Assistant Footwear) both love the blood-spewing work of cult Italian director Dario Argento.
No remakes for Scott Allgauer (Head of Women’s Sales), he’s gone for the original “Have you checked the children?” chiller, which was based on the ultimate urban legend.
Ava Rawksi (Visual Retail Coordinator) was suitably spooked by the latest Paranormal instalment. “My friend Ariel directed it and it’s so scary. I am having nightmares!”
The retro slasher hit a nerve with Edward Lorenz (Men’s Design Associate). “I generally don’t like scary movies but this one is my favorite.”
It takes a lot to unsettle Sapna Shah (Accessories and Footwear Designer) – she actually “enjoys” this Oscar-winning thriller from time to time.
The Fly (1986)
Nick Rogers (Visual Merchandising Assistant) is a fan of the horror which spawned the ever-quotable: “Be afraid, be very afraid”.
The Strangers (2008).
Jaclyn Burney (Women’s Midwest Sales Executive) found Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman’s ordeal at the hands of three masked strangers truly terrifying.
