    Alice Sweet Alice

    ★★★★

    Alfred Sole's Alice Sweet Alice sits in that crisp void of 70's horror with its stylized look back at the past while thrusting towards the slasher kingdom of the 80's.

    Alice is a little brat, jealous of her sister Karen's first communion and all the gifts and attention she's receiving because of it.
    Always running around causing trouble, isn't that right Alice?

    The Trial of the Chicago 7

    ★★★½

    Took a brief pause tonight from our continuous horror movie run to check this out and I definitely have no regrets about that, even if I feel a bit punched in the gut over it.

    I went in knowing very little about this piece of US history and it proved deeply upsetting and frustrating to learn about. A topical look at what transpired during the Trial of the Chicago 7, loaded with difficult moments that were hard to stomach but…
