    This is probably my favorite Cronenberg film since Dead Ringers.

    We see Cronenberg return to his fascination with the evolution of the body, same ballpark as Videodrome or eXistenZ, but he's focused a little differently. He's not as interested in the violence perpetrated or change made by the evolution. He ruminates more on the idea of the impacts of self-created and selfish evolution on society as a whole.

    It is easy to see how an aging filmmaker who clawed his…

    Stage Fright

    ★★★★

    I want to live in the alternate universe where Stagefright became a huge franchise and each subsequent was known as Stagefright: Zodiac Sign.

    StageFright: Libra- An Owl-headed killer wrecks havoc on an opera company practicing for opening night.

    StageFright: Cancer- An Owl-headed killer wrecks havoc on a synchronized swimming team practicing for opening night.

    StageFright: Taurus An Owl-headed killer wrecks havoc on a Rodeo team practicing for opening night.

    Terrible fx. Terrible pacing (so boring in parts…felt like more walking than the entire Lord of the Ring series.) Terrible music cues. Awful acting…

    The cat scene was hilariously cringey.

    Not good enough to be good and not bad enough to be good. Pass

    King Hu got the Wuxai train rolling with this one in a huge way. This is, bar none, my favorite Shaw Bros. I love the songs, I love Drunken Cat, I love Golden Swallow, I love the plot, and I LOVE the bloody action.

    Everyone should see this!

    18: Rewatch a horror movie you haven't seen in a very, very long time, that was integral to your love of horror, or helped introduce you to the genre.

    The best claustrophobic, Antarctic research movie ever made!

    Those practical effects....that tension....the poor puppers...

    Perfection. Horror Canon

    Daily Horror Hunt #48:
    4: 2021 was a pretty decent year for horror, watch the most popular horror movie from 2021 that you haven't seen.

    Wow! This is a masterwork by a genius special effects master. Everything is perfect. The sound design, the sound track, the animation, the tone, the mood, and, dare I say it, the plot. This is not a complicated plot to parse, you just need to pay specific attention and ask "Why are these things doing…
