This week on The Nightmare Feed, we wanted to challenge ourselves. We're going to be discussing one of the worst decades in horror, a decade when we experienced the genre completely dry up, with only the occasional oasis. We're talking about 2000 to 2010. The 00 was remarked as arguably the worst decade in horror as it leaned hard on thoughtless, boring fanfare, and bandwagon after bandwagon of rehashed garbage, such as zombies and found footage. It seemed no one had any original ideas, and this was the decade that started franchise remakes. Interestingly enough, one of Reed's all time favorite movies is both a remake, and a zombie bandwagon film of the 00's.
We'd also like to take this time on The Nightmare Feed, to talk about real life horror. Over the past week, city after city had become the staging ground for one of the biggest protests we've seen involving BLM. This eventually erupted into violence as police attacked protesters and looters began to take advantage of the social discord. It reminds us here at The Nightmare Feed, that there are two Americas, and for our Black Lives Matter friends, that other America is a dangerous and scary place, where the people you rely on for safety could instead kill you.
If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.
