Top 5 One Spot Movies

In an effort to generate more writing and film discussion from myself, I’m going to start posting my reactions to the polls they do each week on the podcast Filmspotting.  If you like film and don’t listen, they have some great and insightful discussions there each week.

The first one I’ll hit up is the Top 5 One Spot Movies – movies that take place almost exclusively in one location. This can’t be a sprawling location (like the town in 30 Days of Night or Bad Day at Black Rock, or the jungle in Juarassic Park or Lord of the Flies). Or take place in one location with a lot of different flashbacks (Reservoir Dogs) or dream sequence type events (Beetlejuice).

  1. The Shining
  2. Clerks
  3. Night of the Living Dead
  4. Alien (and Aliens)
  5. Clue
