    ★★★½

    Really warm and loving, paced with a calming slowness. Not what I typically watch, but I wanted to take my mom out to something that wasn’t scary. Yet I really enjoyed this, clearly made by parties who cared deeply for the subjects, and a sweetness that I found almost medicinal. Also got some good giggles out of it.

    ★★★½

    I rented this vhs tape from the blockbuster in my hometown more than once. 

    An odd movie. I’m not sure who this movie is trying to speak to, or what precisely its messaging is about mental illness. Or if any of that is ok. Still, I like it. 

    It really only works if Lisa is a symbol of Susanna giving into illness, which I think is in there? I think that’s there.

    ★★★★

    Cruel and pointless. Just how I want it. I want it so bad. Feels like it’s been a bit since the last bleak and bloody mainstream horror release that wants to fuck you up but has some artistry to it. So I’m very excited by this. I love the shot composition. The performances really sell the horror, because I like and believe these regular people. And then... it’s so, so mean. 

    Christina Hendricks, I love you! Thank you for being…

    Loss is excruciating. It will make us hungry and rotten.
