Film critic Kenneth Turan recently wrote an article called "Why this film critic gave up on horror movies" http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/movies/la-ca-mn-horror-kenneth-turan-george-romero-20171013-story.html

Although he (we think disingenuously) framed the entire thing as an entirely personal choice, of course he did it in the most public way possible. But he ends it with:

"Why would I want to put myself in the hands of someone whose sole intention is to make me feel as awful as possible? Until someone gives me a convincing answer, horror and I are finished." 

So here is our stab at giving (in a way) that convincing answer.

It happened again. Halloweekly reviews Parts 17 and 18 of Twin Peaks: The Return 

This was an incredible journey, but we argue that it's a journey that isn't over because David Lynch built this to be something that will morph and change with rewatches and the passing of time, and we assess Twin Peaks place in (or not in) the horror genre.

We've reached 45% on Rotten Tomatoes for our How Low Can We Go series and it brings us the divisive movie The Strangers. 

Featuring actual adults, actual suspense, real scares and a daring deviation from horror norms, we argue that The Strangers deserves a better rating than this.
