    Note: some of the information included about the film's third act may be considered mild spoilers by some but were unavoidable during this review so if you want to go in completely blind you might want to watch first, though most plot summaries online including the one on Tubi spoil what happens anyway because it's an important plot point and one of the main reasons the film has garnered such a reputation over the years.

    Mostly sleepy pseudo-slasher by way of haunted house film isn't too bad if you're in the mood for slow-burning creeps. Not much gore but the movie boasts a couple bloody kills; despite director Armand Weston's background in porn, there is very little nudity or sex. The film overstays its welcome by 10-15 minutes, but it's an interesting film that tries blending genres and came out in the slasher golden year of 1981.

    This is a great, extensive documentary on 80's horror. I only wish they had gone into some of the lesser-known horror of the era; they stay pretty safe with what they feature even though they show posters for films like The Mutilator and Slime City, which no one talks about. Lin Shaye is mentioned but not featured and my biased self really wishes they had gotten her to sit down for this. But it's an undeniable accomplishment and so much fun it doesn't feel as long as it is.

    We're definitely in Wicker Man territory although Ari Aster has created a far more intense and horrifying vision. The film unspools at a measured pace, gradually revealing the grotesqueries from which there is no escape. Emotionally exhausting and a film that stands with Hereditary in its sheer skin-crawling force.
