    Halloween Kills

    ★★★

    I can’t tell if this is a genius homage to all the Halloween sequels or just unintentionally messy, my brain hurts. I can tell you the kills are satisfying and about as good as you can get in a slasher film. The reason it works so well is that even if you’ve only met characters a minute earlier they’re fleshed out enough so you don’t want anyone to eat it. I’ll need to rewatch. It’s certainly no Halloween (2018), but it’s not without its merits.

    La Llorona

    ★★★★

    Moved by this. A somber look at the tragedy of genocide and the long lasting effects on Indigenous communities in Guatemala. Something that lingered for me was the hollow response from the perpetrators, oppressors victimizing themselves in order to justify their deeds.

    Worth watching if you’re into slow burns and images that are more haunting than frightening. It might not be what you’d consider a standard horror film, but the horror is there it’s just based in our realities and leaves little to the imagination. Fascinating watch.
