    I think I've made my peace with Lack's performance, but man, imagine if, say, Robert Silverman was the lead.

    The Beast of Hollow Mountain


    Three stars for the MST3K, two stars for the film, which I enjoyed on its own hang-outy terms, especially the location work. It also inadvertently revealed to me how little daylight there is between a poorly-structured movie and a well-structured prestige TV show -- it doesn't take a lot of work to imagine The Beast of Hollow Mountain as a Netflix original.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Hey girl. Sorry you're too young and too small to do anything about global warming, your poverty, your father's horrendous parenting style, your missing mom, your terrible schooling, your community's penchant for alcoholism and general unwindulaxing, and being inculcated with values that emphasize the masculine ("beast it") to the detriment of the feminine ("don't be a pussy"). Oh yeah, and your father dying.

    But hey! You stood up to some imaginary monster pigs, so good for you.
