Re: Horror title help

Perhaps STOWAWAY or INTERLOPER?

I don't know your exact story, but if the possessed protag's changes in mood/behavior are misinterpreted by others as maturation, OLD SOUL might be a fun title.

Re: Wrap for Fountain files ... but what's with "Estella?"

May be nothing, but I think the Italian for EXT would be EST (for esterno/esteriore).

Re: Who loves The Cage?

My top three:

1.) Red Rock West (1993) - I don't think a lot of people saw this noir gem.

3.) Snake Eyes (1998) - Yeah, I know. But I like it anyway.
