    Invasion of Astro-Monster

    ★★★★

    There is nothing -- NOTHING -- more fun than watching bad dubbing of bad dialogue with bad special effects.

    This was very entertaining and VERY 70s.

    Rosemary's Baby

    ★★★★½

    On the one hand, this movie uses horror storytelling to examine themes of power, abuse, and control, specifically against the female body. On the other, it just confirms common wisdom that old white people are terrifying and marriage is bad for women.

  • The Witch

    The Witch

    ★★★★

    Nice, slow-building horror. Offers really interesting, subtle commentary beneath the plot about what a "witch" typically represents in people's minds and how a person (a woman) "becomes" one.

    P.S. Beware of some animal death if you (like me) are a big whiny baby about that.
