    To think that just last night I watched Nightmare Sisters and complained that I didn't actually see any dicks bitten off (it was just implied): tonight I watched this and saw SO MANY dicks bitten off.

    The tension between masculine and feminine energies runs to the core of this film. Witch faces off against industrialist. Moments of male gaze are fragmented by disgust for the male gazing. The camera revels in visceral sexual assault of all bodies.Β While Red Spirit Lake is art, and arthouse, it is also pornographic.Β 

    If you can stomach the r@pe, this is one of the great treasures you will find on your shot-on-video journey. The imperfection of tape feels like visible brushstrokes.…

    I did not remember how gory this was, nor that it did, in its final shot, the thing I will not forgive Evil Dead Rise for failing to do. Glad I rewatched (with Dead Meat commentary)

    Herbert West Reanimator if you made the opposite choice on just about everything. My favourite part here is Marin Ireland's take on the mad scientist who doesn't know how to connect with normal. Kept yearning for the story to escalate yet fearing that it would because the stakes felt so acute.

    Enter a strange urban underground where women have less to fear than men and everything is lit green and magenta. The story needs a little patience, it's mostly a vibes piece, but there's a lot to look at.

    This is the Texas Chainsaw descendant that we needed!

    From the first frame Ti West shows you that this is a film that will examine film, with a shot that seems to be in a narrow aspect ratioβ€”until the camera moves to reveal we are looking out between barn doors, and it was wide screen all along.

    If it has a thesis about exploitation film, it’s stated by their camera man: β€œA dirty film can be a good film, too.” And that’s what this isβ€”a damn good horror film, unabashed about delivering the gore and the sleaze that we want.
