    Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight

    ★★★★½

    I was always fucking terrified of the Crypt Keeper (especially when he was in Casper) as a kid so this is the first one of these I've ever seen.

    Wow!!! A really funny, explosion filled Escape From the Demon Infested House movie, the kind I love. The effects were gross, the cast was great, Billy Z does a good Beetlejuice impression. Saw this as part of Cinepocalypse at Music Box followed by a fun Q&A with Ernest Dickerson!!!!!

    Beyond the Black Rainbow

    ★★★★

    Movie watching has been a bit of a chore recently and I figured this would be a good lil jumpstart. Spotify gave me the title song from the soundtrack and I was floored so I had to reprioritize this immediately.

    Image and style I'm allllllfuckin about. Lots of slick black plastic, head crushing, and gorgeous night driving scenes. A living breathing Boards of Canada album. The soundtrack is standout and everything looks so soft. Not on board with all of the story and some of it was a lil too "trippy" but I enjoyed myself. Barry is a fuckin kook!

  • Hereditary

    Hereditary

    ★★★½

    Not what I'd expected at all and I'm not sure how underwhelmed I am. On one hand this is very morose and hysterical, punctuated with some bright moments of heart stopping terror. On the other hand I think this suffered from problems I had with The Witch, where it was very vague at the wrong moments and then way too literal at other wrong instances. I got some major Polanski vibes from it (especially The Tenant), Toni was perfect, and it at least had my audience scratching their chins.

  • Jennifer's Body

    Jennifer's Body

    ★★★★½

    Are we ready to accept this is a classic? Nu metal post 9/11 Ginger Snaps with acid black emo Heathers oneliners. The humor and the terror of Jennifer's Body ride the rails so comfortably together it's hard to tell if I'm laughing at inappropriate times.
