    Black Mirror: Metalhead

    Metalhead, I watched Chopping Mall. I knew Chopping Mall. Chopping Mall was a friend of mine. Metalhead, you're no Chopping Mall.

    The Whisperer in Darkness


    For a fan film made on a shoestring budget, this is quite inspired. It captures the look and feel of a classic '30s Universal monster film quite well...if only the Lovecraftian vibes weren't undercut by a lackluster (and invented) third act with questionable use of eldritch CGI.

    Oh, so you've seen The Beyond and From Beyond too?

    Exorcist II: The Heretic


    All-glass psychiatric institutes with sliding Death Star doors. Hypnosis mind-melds. Biblical plagues of locusts. Hidden mystical cities. Globe-trotting from South America to New York City to Africa to Washington, D.C. Joyrides with demons. John Boorman pioneering POV speeding demons before Sam Raimi perfected the form. James Earl Jones barfing up a leopard and wearing a grasshopper costume. Yes, this film is baffingly, gloriously insane. Make no mistake, Exorcist II is awful, but you won't spend a single second bored. I'm so grateful it exists.

    At one point, star Richard Burton - quite possibly completely blotto - says it best: "Horrible. Utterly horrible...and fascinating."
