    The soundtrack release screening at Beyond Fest gave me the opportunity to watch this one again in a theatre, and it still holds up as not only one of the best contemporary homages to 80s horror, but as a damned good horror film. IF you like your movies to be about the build up that is created and not just jump scared or quick cuts. Ti West managed to capture the feeling and the mood, which takes this film out…

    Horror movies seem to have mostly gone down the drain in the past decade or so. The genre pulls the same predictable tricks most of the time, providing cheap and mildly effective scares with a lackluster plot without a whole lot of depth, and of course the paper thin characters. At first look Ti West may seem like a director that has fallen into the category of a director providing the recently popular anti-horror film, a movie that realizes the…

    Greta Gerwig eats pizza in a scene that combines quite possibly my two favorite things on this planet.

    "The following is based on true unexplained events..."

    I'm not quite sure I buy that, but this pitch-perfect '80s throwback builds nicely (and patiently) to its grand guignol climax. It also makes me want to dig up my clunky old Walkman and rock out to The Fixx.

    This movie is all build up with one, big, bloody climax at the end. It's clearly channeling Carpenter's Halloween, in a really wonderful way. It could almost be considered parody, it's almost over-the-top in its building of tension. Great little horror movie!

    Still digesting this, but really enjoyed it. It's so well done, and I appreciated the slow build up. Plus Tom Noonan! He's tall.

    It's a slow film, it takes it's time to get where it's going. That's not necessarily a bad thing but here they could have increased the pace a little. It's never a good sign when I start wondering how much of the movie is left. The performances are all good and I loved seeing some genre favorites given a little screen time.

    Now this is an interesting little film. Clearly lovingly sending up the old horror films of late 70s/early 80s, but much more subtle than a routine homage. Spends a long time, majority of run time, creating an atmosphere of tension in a place that clearly isn't safe, kudos to a fantastic short part where Megan stops her car to light a cigarette, but the ending does fall a bit short. Too much of a jump to the final act, which…

    Are you not the babysitter?

    My favorite modern horror film. I could see this becoming a yearly tradition.

    Yawn. A bore fest that was mildly interesting till half way through, then it just become a slow decrepit film trying to build on suspense that really wasn't there. In the first hour, the only hint at suspense was when her friend is shot. That's it. Then, when it's to late, it just flops and flails in redundant cult sacrifice ritual been there done that plot. And here, I was expecting this great movie from all the hype I've heard on podcast. I've got to stop listening to hype built up on podcast. Another one down that I didn't care for.
