Lewton Bus
A film criticism and review site I recently launched with a number of my film nerd buddies.

From our "About" page:
Seventy-four years ago, producer Val Lewton and director Jacques Tourneur scared the pants off of audiences with the sound of a bus pulling into frame. After the release of Cat People, the technique of dissipating tension with an innocuous jump scare came to be known as the “Lewton Bus.” If you’ve ever watched a slasher film and been startled by a cat jumping out of a cupboard, you’ve been a victim of it.

We don’t mean to scare you, but we don’t mean to be innocuous either. We’re just a bunch of people who are passionate about movies and have chosen that somewhat obscure bit of film lore as the name for a new film criticism site. We look forward to clogging up your RSS reader and Facebook feed.
