Emily S. Customer Hits The Big Time!

 

You’ve read her smart, funny takes on movies and TV in the VideoReport for years. Now the great Emily S. Customer is writing for none other that the A.V. Club (where they pay her to be smart).

Here’s a quote from her latest, an article on television and horror movies:

Three iconic horror films of the 1980s and 1990s express that contemporary unease with television’s pervasive presence. In Poltergeist, Videodrome, and Ringu, television becomes a medium for psychic pollution, physical corruption, and deadly trespass. The television set first manipulates the viewer with treacherous images, sounds, and ideas, then allows unwholesome intrusions into the home through the permeable membrane of its screen.

 

Read the whole thing here, at The A.V. Club, where Emily totally works because she’s so smart.
