Really not much has changed.
If there is one genre I truly love, it would have to be the deranged psycho/victim-never-saw-it-comin’ kill fest. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, or as Chicago put it, “He had it comin’”. I will warn you now: there are a lot of SPOILERZ up in here.
My Top Five Crazy Bitches
1. Norma Desmond - Sunset Blvd. She is the ULTIMATE.
2. Alex Forrest - Fatal Attraction“I won’t be ignored, Dan”
3. Carrie - Need i say more? (besides that this film warned us of the school shootings to come.)
4. Baby Jane Hudson - Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?
5. Joan Crawford - Mommy Dearest “NO WIRE HANGERS, EVERRRRRRRR!!!”
SOOOO many to choose from, here are some:
Ellen Berent - Leave Her to Heaven
Mrs. Danvers - Rebecca
Norman Bates - Psycho (He Counts)
Annie Wilkes - Misery
Madison Bell - Swimfan (or Swimf@n)
Esther - Orphan
Not even M.Night Shyamalan would try and pull of this twist:
AND OF COURSE,
Lisa - OBSESSED
Probably one of the finest uses of suspense since Hitchcock:
When searching for a classic movie involving a psycho, look out for ones where the unsuspecting family lives in a modern glass home. This lets us know in advance that our crazy bitch is going through a window.
Exhibit A: Jon Hamm on The Sarah Silverman Program circa 2007
Exhibit B: Jon Hamm on 30 Rock Circa ‘09.

Exhibit D: Just for prosperity’s sake.

Something about him makes me cringe…like whats with all these video’s of him performing?? Where is he? Why is he doing this?

Make ‘em Laugh
It’s as if Lorne Michaels was like…we’ll have you do something funny, and JGL was like…I can do backflips?? eh? eh?
