    Six Men Getting Sick

    This short shouldn’t be this interesting to look at, but it’s Lynch, so ofc it is. The way that it seems to get slower every time it happens again is discomforting.

    Hellbound: Hellraiser II

    ★★★

    Liked that it builds on the original, instead of shifting focus to a new protagonist or just rehashing the previous film.

    The making of pinhead scene was pretty good. As was the showdown between Dr. channard & cenobites, and the former’s final form.

    Ever wondered while watching a supernatural horror movie, how that whole tragic experience will shape the family, especially the kids, in the future.
    Or just how you carry the ghosts (read: traumas) of your childhood into adulthood?
    Wanted to see This Is Us but horror?
    Wished Elsa was gay?
    Have been on the lookout for a show that was scarier than that one episode of The Suite Life of Zack & Cody that…
