Dear Mr. Lillard,
Happy 33rd Birthday! I very much enjoyed your movie, 13 Goats. It scared the crap out of me! I think it was very Hitchcockianly clever to make a horror movie about goats and not even show them. The true terror lies in what we IMAGINE is lurking in the dark. Any lesser horror movie would have shown nothing but bloody, gory goats for two hours, settling for the cheap and easy scare tactics. But not this fine film! No way, José. 13 Goats is a true masterpiece. Keep up the good work.
