MeFi Horror Club #10: One Hour Photo

We've already agreed in principle on adding a "Crossover" category to the rotation for Horror Club, a category that would include scary science fiction, thrillers, etc. Since there wasn't much steam building for any particular film for the scheduled "retro" pick for week 10, and since the world just lost Robin Williams, I'm going to invoke my benevolent dictator powers. Week 10 will now be the debut for "Crossover" as a rotation slot, and the first pick will be Mark Romanek's film One Hour Photo. [more inside]
