    There's something about this film that keeps bringing me back for more. There's an almost hypnotic lucidity to the way that this film is shot. It lulls you into its grasp before turning into an ethereal nightmare around the thirty/forty minute mark. Dean Cundey's cinematography has been praised to death but I'll add to it anyway. What he's able to achieve with such a minimal budget is incredible. His and Carpenter's spacial awareness is damn near unparalleled. The use of…

    More like "The Haunting of Derry, Maine" amirite?

    Jokes aside, this series owes a great debt to the works of Stephen King more so than the actual source novel. In some ways you could call this Mike Flanagan's take on "It" as the parallels are aplenty. From the Childhood trauma/grief to the split timelines with the young characters and their broken, guilt ridden adult counterparts. Whether he was inspired by "It," who knows? I'm just saying that I saw it…

    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    ★★★½

    I dunno, I kinda dug this film. Sure, the script completely throws Wanda "What about muh my completely fabricated kids" Maximoff under the bus but I don't care. Seeing a zombified Doctor Strange more than made up for the laughable plotting of this film. I liked the action set pieces in this film, especially the scenes with the illuminate. Watching certain long speculated characters get literally splattered into mince meat had me howling. The horror elements were neat and whilst…

    House of 1000 Corpses

    ★★★★½

    I honestly never thought I'd see the day where I would unironically call myself a Rob Zombie fan. The flip initially switched when I watched "The Lords of Salem" for the first time last year. Something about the way that film was shot really spoke to me. I absolutely adored the slow burn, psychedelic 70's vibe that he was able to elicit throughout. It showed me that there was far more to his style than the often bemoaned trailer trash…

    "Charade" is the most Hitchcockian Hitchcock that Hitchcock never Hitchcocked.

  • Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

    ★★

    I think it goes without saying amongst fellow film aficionados that we all love films, especially the great ones. However, through years of watching films I've noticed that there seems to be that one film which is hugely popular, yet when you sit down to watch it you can't understand why it's held in such high esteem. For me it's only happened a couple of times, but I unfortunately have to add "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" to the…
