    Not for Resale

    ★★★★★

    I'll watch any movie with my name in the credits :)

    I participated and appear in this documentary and even if I didn't, it would be near and dear to my heart. It's the story of a cottage industry - the local "brick and mortar" videogame shop - and its future chances against the inevitable world of digital distribution. The movie asks the question "as ownership goes digital, what gets left behind?".

    To date, I've only seen the rough cut.…

    ★★

    Great atmosphere, great performances but I’m sorry, any movie that forces me to look up the explanation and even the explanation has a number of different interpretations doesn’t sit well with me. If you’re ok with enjoying the journey only to be left hanging at the destination, you’re a better person than I!

    Re-watched because I want to see the 2020 remake but had only vague recollections of this one, entirely comprised of the creepy ghosts. I understand why now. Every scene with the creepy ghosts are fantastic. Every other scene is “meh”, even the ones with Sarah Michele Gellar, who I adore but is not given an interesting character to work with.

    Kinda not looking forward to watching the remake now, but now I’m invested in it.

    ★★★★

    It’s a work of art, a swath of style and contradiction. It’s a zombie movie with its own canon. It’s equal parts Lynch and Raimi. It’s foreign to an American like me, yet it’s in English. It’s a love story in a unique triangle. Its ugliest images are some of the most beautiful I’ve seen in a horror film. It’s a buddy film with a parallel universe Curly Howard as the buddy. It’s The Walking Dead-creative-killing 20 years before Dead was born. It’s gothic and simultaneously hip.

    It is absurd. And it makes perfect sense.

    ★★★★

    An analogy, if you will: Intruder is, for the first act, the 80’s horror equivalent of 1976’s Car Wash where we viewers are just sitting in on a day in the life of an ordinary business (in this case, a supermarket) and its staff and customers. Nothing really happens in the first act here but it’s still a trip. There’s something about spending a long time in the same location that does more than introduce us to the characters - we…
