    The Texas Chain Saw Massacre


    Movie #11 of Hooptober 5.0.
    Movie #16 of HORRORx52.
    Task #42: Rewatch #2
    This movie has a nightmarish atmosphere. The set design of the inside of the house is disturbing and so well-executed.
    I don't think this movie gets enough credit for the technical aspects, I mean the sound design and the cinematography is really good and the way it plays with light is beautiful and helps create the eerie atmosphere.

    Movie #10 of Hooptober 5.0.
    Movie #15 of HORRORx52.
    Task #6: Foreign Language
    Bizarre and grotesque.
    A visual treat.
    Essentially it's a coming-of-age story hidden underneath layers of cannibalism and gore.
    Great performances from Garance Marillier and Ella Rumpf and a stunning directorial debut from Julia Ducournau.

    Before Sunrise


    This is one of my all-time favorite movies.
    Everything just works: the acting, the chemistry, the settings, the intensity, the romance, the emotions.


    Can't wait to watch "Before Midnight".

    Night of the Creeps


    Movie #31 of Hoop-tober.

    So much fun!
    Alien slugs, an alcoholic bitter policeman, a nerd who has a crush on the popular girl, a flamethrower and zombies.

    I was entertained. A pleasant last entry for hoop-tober.
