All of my reviews were done in the past and I do not stand by any of them. Do not ask me to justify my ratings!

    The Thing from Another World

    ★★★½

    I'm a huge fan of the John Carpenter version & this is a very different film but I still loved it. Margaret Sheridan is a real standout in the cast. I'd be fine if the whole film was her flirting w/ Capt. Hendry!

  • A Bucket of Blood

    A Bucket of Blood

    ★★★½

    Roger Corman isn't a huge fan of doing comedy (the Poe films were probably his sweet spot) so it's surprising that he handles this satire so well. Dick Miller is perfect as a wannabe artist who keeps getting rejected by beatniks.

    Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

    ★★★½

    PG-13 horror gets a bad rap. People think they're soft w/out an R rating. But their true purpose is to scar children for life & that's pretty hardcore. Anyway, don't let your kids see this–unless you want them to grow up cool.

  • Dick Johnson Is Dead

    Dick Johnson Is Dead

    ★★★★

    Kirsten Johnson follows up her transcendent CAMERAPERSON by taking an unflinching look at her father in the early stages of dementia. She's going to lose him before he dies but for now they can still find the humor in a difficult situation.
