In October we had the opportunity to raise money for a great organization called Stackup! Part of the incentives were that I would write about some of my favorite horror villains. Here is one of my favorite randomly selected favorites from the genre of horror.
Red is such an interesting character. She is terrifying. Truly terrifying. She is also tragic. What happened to her, what her life has been up to the point of what we see in the film, has been horrific. Her story comes from and is also directed by the amazing mind of Jordan Peele.
Red is the mastermind behind a whole movement. It just so happens that the movement requires a lot of murder. She is an exact look alike for the main character in a film called Us. It is difficult to explain much about Red without giving away big chunks of the story, which I don’t want to do. What I will say is she is one of my favorites on my list. Us is a movie that I cannot watch late at night or I won’t sleep.
Red is so scary and interesting thanks not only to good writing but also to acting. I honestly believe that all acting students should study Lupita Nyong’o. She is one of the most talented people in the industry. Her performance in this film is simply amazing. She brings this character to life and the world of horror is better for her performance.
Red also has a difficult story to watch but so worth it.
ALWAYS KEEP SPARKLING!!!
