When it comes to analyzing the horror “slasher” cycle that came in the late ’90s, the undisputed champ has to be Wes Craven’s genre defining 1996 classic SCREAM.

“Paranoia! Paranoia! Everybody’s Coming to Get Me!”: Revisiting 1998’s DISTURBING BEHAVIOR

It was the 90s. We loved grungy clothing, angry music and X-FILES. In 1998, X-FILES veteran David Nutter directed the feature film DISTURBING BEHAVIOR. Opening on the same day as SAVING PRIVATE RYAN, the film received horrible reviews and sunk financially. It was quickly dubbed “the Stepford Kids” for the very Stepford Wives-ish plot…just at a […]
