    Down by Law

    Tom Waits twitching, while John Lurie looms, a handsome and viable threat as Roberto Benigni performs a circus with his face, and provides the illogical stability to this gorgeous three-legged chair.

  • The Howling

    The Howling

    The battle between the fleshy horror, the threads of sleaze, the cursory understanding of radical psychiatry and the winking humor is just as interesting to watch as the werewolf transformations themselves.

    The Empty Man

    ★★★★½

    THE EMPTY MAN is the most philosophically ambitious studio horror film I’ve ever seen? Painting broadly with strokes of Kobayashi, Cronenberg, Anderson, Derrickson & Peele it remains profoundly original with every unexpected turn it takes. Bravo to David Prior and Boom! Studios.

    Midsommar

    ★★★★★

    There was a moment while watching Midsommar where i wondered if this was what it was like for audiences that got to experience a new piece by Mozart first hand.

    Ari Aster is a virtuoso — a filmmaker in complete control of theme, technique, narrative and performance. His attention to detail results in a fully realized world that he deftly fucks with from scene to scene, shot to shot. 

    He brings a sense of wonder back to the horror genre.
