    If I saw this back when I was in film school, I absolutely would have joined a noise band and started chainsmoking cigarettes in my 8-roommate apartment with a bunch of people I barely know collectively wearing way too much denim

  • The Devil's Rain

    The Devil's Rain

    ★★★★★

    This is a way classier film than its marketing leads it on to be. Even the parts where Nickelodeon slime is bursting out of people and they melt like Street Trash characters feels genuinely frightening. Some great horror quietly hiding in here if you're willing to buy what it's selling (you'll know in the first 5 minutes).

    There's an easy list of best on-screen devils, but goddamn if Ernest Borgnine isn't the perfect mad cultist. His performance here should be…

  • Unmasked Part 25

    Unmasked Part 25

    ★★★★★

    This belongs in a museum.

    I've never seen anything like this. For 88 minutes, Unmasked tiptoes through a minefield. There's a million ways this could have gone wrong, and it tactfully evades every one. This is the movie every horror fan in film school wishes their work looked like.

    This is the closest we'll ever get to a Time Crisis movie

  • Super Mario Bros.

    ★★★★★

    I watched this ironically enough times, it just genuinely rules now. Walk the Dinosaur is a banger. Fuck it. Trust the fungus.

    YOU EVER JUST WANTED TO FIGHT A MOTHERFUCKER WHEN THE NEW LINE CINEMA LOGO COME UP

  • You Cannot Kill David Arquette

    You Cannot Kill David Arquette

    ★★★★★

    If I didn't know better, I'd absolutely assume this is a "fake" documentary ala I'm Still Here.

    Bizarre beyond description. Overflowing with moments you need to see to believe, and moments you'll refuse to believe aren't scripted. An epic journey to the center of a troubled man's psyche as he literally fights for redemption with Rocky-like dedication and passion. When I wasn't laughing, I was cheering. A true roller coaster of a film.

    Slap the A24 logo on this and it'd be the winner of every indie festival in the world.

  • Tetsuo: The Iron Man

    Tetsuo: The Iron Man

    ★★★★★

    67 minutes of pure fucking technohorror adrenaline. a sensory overload nightmare with a banger soundtrack.

    Some people watch a movie with minimal plot and say "yeah you just enjoy the vibes" and its usually some kind of dull lighthearted drama/comedy about people walking around the park for 90 minutes or something like that. Tetsuo is the kind of vibes I like to soak in. Screaming misery.

    "Easy to Breath" is the best song Paul Williams never wrote

  • OPAL

    OPAL

    ★★★★★

    I wish I was half as good as Jack Stauber is at whatever you'd call it he does. He's surpassed just having an "artistic style." He's constructed his own reality in a pocket dimension of singing clay weirdos. Stauber is a man who is good at everything he does, and is capable of anything. Opal is as fascinating as it is frightening, and I am living for the day Stauber takes his efforts to feature form.

    "Sarcastically I'm in charge" might be the funniest joke in film history
