    I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore

    ★★★★

    Feels like a story you'd hear around a bonfire-- by the townie racantour loaded on cheap beer-- as we all collectively scoot closer & closer to the edge of our lawn chairs.


    Cheers to this one.

    ★★★★

    Pretty great haunted house flick.
    It has aged well.
    Acting is solid: Carol Reed is oozing charisma, Bette Davis is still up to snuff, Burgess Merideth has a brief, wonderfully campy performance.

    Surprised it took me this long to see, it seems to have inspired everything from the Shining, to Evil Dead, & - the movie I previously thought inspired a bunch of post 1980's horror- TheChangeling

    ★★

    Not much peculiar here. It's a rehash mishmash of better stories; a collection of orphaned ideas, tossed in a Tim Burton goulash & set to cook low and waaaaay too slow.

    The central performance is cringe-worthy.

    Eva Green is magnetic, but has absolutely nothing to do in this movie.

    Victor from Wet Hot American Summer has a killer hemroid. 

    Puppetry is refreshing in this cgi obsessed world.
