    Messiah of Evil


    The plot, what little there is of one, is very Lovecraftian - endless flight through a seaside town, followers of an obscure sect pursuing you even in your sleep, locked up safe in your motel. But there's an overriding voice that is reminiscent of Shirley Jackson - events taking on intimate, sinister undertones that echo and echo through claustrophobic domesticity just starting to sprawl out into a post-war infinity.

    Here, we arrive at that same gas station twenty some odd…

  • Critters



    So...this may sound like midlife crisis crazy talk, but I've had it with here/where my life is at right now, and so I've come to a very important decision on where my journey is taking me:

    Grovers Bend, Kansas.

    I am serious. It looks amazing. I want E.T's mom to be my mom. I wouldn't even mind having to live on a farm because I would have an awkward Billy Zane to tell me about what life is like in…

    Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night II


    'I don't know what we got here. Somethin' strange'

    Indeed. πŸŽ πŸ’—πŸŽ πŸ’—πŸŽ πŸ’—

    Unfortunately, when I first saw this, it fell solidly into my 'couldn't pay attention; say something dumb or snarky to disguise this fact' reviews, of which there are many - On top of which, this was the last birthday present my mom gave me, and even though I knew she had cancer, I took it for granted she would be fine, so I didn't even keep it, as it…

    Look What's Happened to Rosemary's Baby


    u would think this particular custody dispute would be somewhat interesting ... but it's pretty tedious.

    No one actually considers what would be best for Andy/Adrien who just wants to rock out and eat loose lunchmeat in peace

    The teen sized antics are slightly better ... Adrien waits and waits and waits to receive the full powers of Satan which is something I think everyone can relate to.

    Still, a rambling Ruth Gordon is really the best thing in this. Like no contest.

  • The Seventh Victim

    The Seventh Victim


    Pre-60s horror Tuesdays:

    The main character Jacqueline (who still feels like the main character despite being onscreen very little and only showing up about a third of the way thru this) reveals a dangerous secret to her psychiatrist. Back then, gayness was a mental disorder called 'homesexuality' and (especially if you were female, but this assumption is purely based on the statistical likelihood of being considered the legal property of others more often than men were) you could be forcibly…

  • Alien



    There are a lot of horror movies I just watch, either for fun or to unwind. This is not one of them. A lot of horrors will quickly move through a group leaving only one survivor, yet every kill relieves a bit of tension. It helps that in a lot of the movies I watch, the kills are brief, sometimes nearly instantaneous. The camera moves quickly from kill shot to a blank, unseeing stare. It's over now, for that victim.…
