    Luciferina

    ★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    If you've been reading my writing for awhile, you may know that I've learned some rules from horror movies that have aided in my survival for the last forty some odd years. For example, I don't do drugs or have sex in the woods. And I avoid old Hollywood actors and actresses. Now, thanks to Luciferina, I've added a new one: don't drink Ayahuasca in a haunted church.

Or you can just do what I did: utterly enjoy every single minute of it. Also, of note, this is the only slasher series to be completely directed by women.
