Horror Lexicon #5: The Cassandra Complex
|Dr. Sam Loomis (Donald Pleasence) in Halloween IV: The Return of Michael Myers (1988)|
|Crazy Ralph (Walt Gorney) in Friday the 13th (1980).|
Or consider Jezelle Gay Hartman (Patricia Belcher) of Victor Salva's Jeepers Creepers (2001), who possesses an unwanted insight into the nature of the monstrous Creeper, but is unable to make imperiled teens Darry (Justin Long) and Trish (Gina Phillips) listen to her about the very real danger they face. She tries...and fails, then must live with the consequences of "knowing."
|Martin Landau in Without Warning (1980)|
|Jon Lormer in The Boogens (1982)|
