    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    There aren't very many films that get under my skin the same way this one does.

    I grew up in a broken home away from everything, even the local town of 400 people that we built our house on the outskirts of on our hands and knees. Whenever something went wrong, it never seemed to matter what the circumstances were, it always just seemed to concentrate on what was happening in the moment and everyone who had lived in this…

    WOW.

    I can say without hesitation that this is one of the best horror films I've ever seen. Hit me the same way that Let The Right One In did when I saw it as a teenager, but I think I like this one even more.

    I can't remember the last time a film got this much of a visceral reaction out of me since I saw Hereditary in the theater for the first time. I knew I was going…

    One of the all-time greatest special effects movies, right up there with John Carpenter's "The Thing". A total powder keg.

    Jeff Goldblum gives a downright Oscar worthy performance in this which is already commendable enough, but the way he's able to emote so much underneath all that make-up is something that needs to be seen to be believed. The disgusting practical effects and the romance between the two leads hold this together like airplane glue.

    This is top 10 of all time for the horror genre in my book. Never fails to lose its sense of humor, either.

    Tay hadn't seen this since before our Cronenberg run, so I happily obliged and went back on this with her.

    One of Cronenberg's most accessible films. While I have a hard time recommending most of his films to people who aren't total weirdos like me, this is one you could probably suggest for your parents to check out. Not much to say that I didn't cover in my last review, but yeah this rules.

    You people thought Gotti was a fucking meme?

    Give this a few months to be the laughing stock of the internet. I seriously couldn't believe what I was watching as I was seeing it.

    If it weren't for "The Haunting of Sharon Tate", this would be the worst film of the year, but it's simply too entertaining for me to put it lower than that offensive dumpster fire.

    This is gonna be John Travolta's "Wicker Man". A masterpiece of garbage.

    David Lynch is my favorite artist, I don't give a FUCK.

    This is exactly the kind of person I picture in my head when someone says the word "artist".

    Completely eccentric, always seeing the beauty in everything and never not interesting. I love this video.
