    Mascots

    ★★★

    Plenty of chuckles but not especially satisfying. Mascots hits a lot of the same beats as Best in Show and so feels a bit derivative of it. But it's included in your Netflix subscription so you've nothing to lose.

  • Dr. Mabuse, the Gambler

    Dr. Mabuse, the Gambler

    ★★★★

    Horrifyingly accurate depiction of Weimar-era Germany and the relative ease that would allow such a period to be exploited by a man with nefarious machinations.

    Spookies

    ★★★

    I was sold this movie as another in the tradition of ripping off Gremlins, much like a Critters, a Ghoulies, or even a Munchies.
    Spookies is so much more than that. It contains almost every 80's trope, and creature, you can thinks of. It's almost a perfect time capsule of all horror from the period.
    Featuring zombies, ghouls, sorcerers, pint-sized goblins, exploding grim reapers, muck men, demon possession, and vengeful brides, Spookies is impossibly entertaining in a stew-like manner. The equivalent of horror bubble and squeak.

  • Showgirls 2: Penny's from Heaven

    Showgirls 2: Penny's from Heaven

    ★★★½

    The most bizarre and amazing film I saw all year. Like two Birdemics fucking on Mullholland Drive. Exactly the follow up that Showgirls deserved.
