    The House by the Cemetery

    ★★★½

    Bob is LIT, but Ania Pieroni's eyes/eyebrows are the real MVP here, hehe.

    I think this is the weakest of the Gates of Hell trilogy mainly because the pacing is a bit too slow for me.

  • Silent Night, Deadly Night II

    Silent Night, Deadly Night II

    ★★½

    I feel like this also counts as a rewatch for the 1st one... I've literally never seen so much recycled footage lmao

    Congo

    ★★★½

    Congo has my vote for the greatest bad film of all time. Things that make it awesome include but are certainly not limited to: an outrageously campy scene where Delroy Lindo calmly requests then promptly and inexplicably shouts "STOP EATING MY SESAME CAKE", murderous grey gorillas, silly Bruce Campbell, avaricious Joe Don Baker, charismatic Joe Pantoliano, The Lost City of Zinj (aka King Solomon's Mines with a more exotic name), Amy the talking gorilla, and of course Tim Curry's preposterous character, Herkermer Homolka, who is more obsessed with diamonds than anyone ever.

    Imitation of Life

    ★★★★

    I’m digging Sirk lately for sure. Magnificent Obsession was pretty sweet, but Imitation of Life feels much more ambitious and complete. The film as expected looks great in lavish Technicolor, and its multilayered story is very engaging. The acting was phenomenal with Lana Turner giving her best performance and of course Juanita Moore is the real star of the film.
