    This was miserable. I liked how Soavi looked, dug it for about 15 minutes. I didn't expect too much but there's really no plot to this thing. People run around a building from demons for about 75 minutes. It gets tiresome and even if there's some fun outrageous stuff at the very end, too little too late.

    Call me crazy but I *really* prefer early pre-1970 Bava. The atmosphere just isnt the same once you start getting away from fog machines and studio sets. The opening sequence is terrific. I generally like how the giallo elements play out but I wish the narrative felt more cohesive.

    English dub. Also experienced some playback problems during watching.

    A cut above typical Marvel but perhaps at the cost of some of the brand's usual humor. Culturally significant. Maybe a bit of a handgrenade. Takes awhile to warm up but strong finish.

    Live and Let Die


    Bond meets blaxploitation. The first act is unquestionably the most interesting but there's a sense of a racial conspiracy that seems very problematic. The movie gets a little too campy and dull through the rest. I really like the gimmick villains in this and the theme is killer.
