    Halloween III: Season of the Witch

    ★★★★★

    It’s one of those nights where I’m too tired to wanna think about anything, so I just watched Season of the Witch and ate an entire bag of popcorn for dinner. Watch out, I’m living my best life over here.

    Creepshow

    ★★★★

    I think I relate to Steven King’s character more than any other in the history of film. Not so much the turning into a moss monster and shooting myself in the face, but the staying up way too late watching crummy TV while getting completely trashed part.

    P.S.
    Leslie Neilsen’s velour tracksuit is pure sex.

    The Stone Tape

    ★★★★

    After watching Woodlands Dark and Days Bewitched, two of the properties that were talked about that caught my eye were The Stone Tape and the Quatermass BBC miniseries, and for very obvious reasons. Both were written by Nigel Kneale, who wrote Hammer's trilogy of Quatermass movies and wrote the original script for Halloween 3: Season of the Witch. After looking online (aka: I looked on youtube) I found a good copy of it and gave it a watch while dealing…

    Woodlands Dark and Days Bewitched: A History of Folk Horror

    ★★★★

    A truly monolithic documentary that's left me with a never ending list of movies I need to watch....once I get through Severin's folk horror boxset of course. At 3 and a half hours, it's a pretty daunting watch (I ended up watching it over the course of a week in chunks), but if you have any interest in folk horror or even just the history of horror in general, it's a must watch. I was also not expecting to hear someone talk about Fukuyama's "The End of History" and how it relates to folk horror's recent resurgence either so that's pretty cool.

    The Candy Snatchers

    ★★★★

    The Candy Snatchers is a hard movie to describe. The only thing that comes to mind is 'tonal whiplash'. The movie is constantly switching between being darkly comedic and just completely misanthropic, but somehow it manages to make it work most of the time. It all comes together in the end to make a well-made exploitation heist flick with some surprisingly snappy dialog that will leave you feeling mildly miserable.

    Also, if anyone that works at Vinegar Syndrome is reading this, I would not be opposed to you putting out a "Coors Breakfast of Champions" t-shirt.

    ★★★★★

    Nick Cage watches the Don Dohler classic Night Beast at one point in the movie. I wish I could give it more than five stars.

    All joking aside, I thought Mandy was amazing and it has broken my brain. All I can do is think about Mandy...and the Cheddar Goblin.
