    Fresh

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    Fresh was my most anticipated film from this year's Sundance lineup (after Final Cut pulled out), and had me feeling uneasy for its entire run. I understand why some aren't going to like this because it bounces back and forth with black comedy and disgusting bits of violence while highlighting casual misogyny and other issues in the modern dating scene, which is a messy combination to even begin to think about.

    Scream

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    Scream has been my favorite film franchise for well over half of my lifetime, and if you asked me just two years ago, I would've said you were crazy to think that the main series would ever come back to the big screen. Truth of the matter is, Wes Craven's last film being Scream 4 ended his directorial career on a high note, but left the door open just wide enough for new creatives to fulfill his legacy down the…

    Below The Belt

    Late Night Letterboxd, Entry #7

    Looks like I'm the first to review Below the Belt on here, and seeing as I was in a Chad Douglas kinda mood tonight, the final acts certainly delivered what I came for. It runs at just over an hour and ten, and for the most part, is pretty bland. I know this is hardcore gay pornography I'm talking about, but with the adult films I've reviewed on here in the past, their stories were…

    Phantasm III: Lord of the Dead

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    Phantasm III continues this bizarre fantasy franchise with a blend of the surreal supernatural elements from the 1979 film, and the road horror from its 1988 sequel. Lord of the Dead is the third out of four entries directed by series creator Don Coscarelli, getting a bit more psychological with its terror, in yet another plot that lost me and will require a rewatch eventually. That being said, it's a pretty good time, and if the last two are even an ounce as entertaining, I'll be satisfied.

    Fear Street: 1666

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    Fear Street Part Three brings us back to the last film's jaw-dropper of an ending with the best of the series' cast in brand new roles. I've never been the biggest fan of folk horror, but this works; the switch from slasher to supernatural distinguishes this chapter from the last two as the town grows sinister, effectively keeping you guessing what the evil of Fear Street actually is. As the witch hunt begins, so does the feeling of dread, with…

    Candyman

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    Candyman was a gem for the 90s audience, and Candyman will be another gem today. I can't put into words how surreal this viewing experience was, sitting in a jam packed theater for the first time in a long time with franchise fans new and old. This cast was magnificent; Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Teyonah Parris, and Colman Domingo effectively bringing the urban legend back to life, with themes surrounding race and social class utilized in the best way since the…
