    Rapture

    ★★★★½

    There’s probably a whole slew of implicit meanings to be gleaned from the frenetic whirlwind that is Arrebato, but one rung out to me more than the others on my first viewing last night, and that one was this: passion can be one helluva drug. It can easily sweep you up in its throes if you’re not careful, and after that, you’re at its mercy; it can either spit you out on a whim, or swallow you whole.

    I’m honestly kind…

    ★★★★★

    Mad God is a rusted, corpuscle-y audiovisual acid trip, sparse in spoken word and with near endless amounts of interpretability; Kubrick’s Space Odyssey by way of H.R. Giger and Zdzisław Beksiński. This film is the grand culmination of over 3 decades of labor by special effects master, Phil Tippett, and while it falters in the realm of narrative cohesiveness, it’s still a jaw-dropping feat of animation — every corner of every shot feels alive, littered with minute details that truly sell the…

    Garth Marenghi's Darkplace

    ★★★★

    Watched over the course of the past few days before going to bed, and finally completed it last night. Not necessarily a series I’d consider to be “laugh-out-loud,” but the fact that I still kept coming back for more should be enough testament to its cockeyed charm. Every single detail is articulately crafted to be as absurd as possible, and the cast is always committed to selling it in the most deadpan, earnest way.  I will say, I thought the…

    So, after four years of remaining in the clear…I finally caught COVID. But don’t worry, I’m not dying on you’s yet! The fever and constant muscle aches weren’t pleasant, but I never suffered any severe respiratory afflictions, and I’m already feeling pretty much recovered after less than a week. 

    Anyway, this was on my Reddit feed the second day of my illness; described as one of the first “analog horror films” by the poster, so I had to check it…

    HoopTober Se7en - Film #1 / 31
    ———
    Ah, so here we are at the beginning of HoopTober! To start things off, I decided to go with The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2. This is the only film on this year’s list that I’ve already seen, and I have a pretty good reason for rewatching it...

    I was not at all a fan of this one the first time I watched it. I thought it 100% flat-out fuckin’ sucked. The original was…

    Last Night in Soho

    ★★★½

    Well, this would’ve been a-okay coming from just about anyone else in the horror scene, but coming from an established director like Edgar Wright, I felt it was kind of a let-down. 

    It is a rather nice-looking feature for the most part, and Thomasin McKenzie is so cute it should be illegal, but the story it tells is missing the exhilarating edge of the director’s former films. Plus, the editing in this film all seemed superficial; it made you say…
