Some people have a God.
I have a Road House.
As if small town New England was not already creepy enough, Dead & Buried also boasts a unique zombie-based concept that leaves the perfect amount of room for confusion and intrigue.
While I came in expecting a more typical zombie film, what I got was something far creepier and perplexing, but in a good way of course. The film successfully clues you in just enough to keep up the intrigue, but only in the end does it ultimately unveil the absurdity of what goes down when New Englanders start reading up on their witchcraft.
"What the hell's wrong with being stupid once in a while?"
Although one could easily write The Sure Thing off as a lesser and holistically cliché college sex comedy, that would require one to be blind to the ball of charisma that is John Cusack.
In addition to a brief oddball performance from Tim Robbins, Cusack is more or less the entire film, but I could watch Cusack in anything so naturally I had some fun with this.
Don’t come for Halloween III because you are not going to get it. Instead, come for Season of the Witch: the film that is also not about witches, but rather consumerism and applesauce-leaking cyborgs?
Whatever you want to make of this absolutely batshit crazy film is up to you. Personally, I just want to be able to abandon my responsibilities, strike up an impromptu romance, and investigate a conspiracy-esque horror all while a chillingly awesome score plays in the background.
Jaw-droppingly bonkers; Re-Animator is a non-stop assault of lunacy that somehow masterfully plays out in under 90 minutes.
Minor masterpieces like this truly show just how far a little tit, a ton of violence, and a truckload of absurdity will get you, especially when it is all wrapped in a wicked concept.
