  • The Exorcist

    The Exorcist

    ★★★★★

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

    I wanted to save this for later, because man am I blowing my load early, but having just rewatched this at Beyond Fest, I think the timing is perfect. This is a film I have wanted to write on for so long, but I always stop because of the simple fact that there’s probably nothing I can say about it that has not been said before. It’s widely touted as being among not only the greatest of horror films, but…

  • Color Out of Space

    Color Out of Space

    ★★★★

    Seen at Beyond Fest 2019

    Color Out of Space is Richard Stanley's triumphant return to directing, 23 years after the disaster that was The Island of Dr. Moreau. Stanley had been trying to get this film made for many years, and now the wonderful people at SpectreVision have made his dream, as well as the dreams of many horror fans, come true. Color Out of Space is a triumph and shows that in those idle years, Stanley has not lost…

    Doctor Sleep

    ★★★★

    "I will find you, and you will scream for years."

    I saw this last week but I still feel like I really need to talk about it. So here we go.

    PLEASE go see Doctor Sleep. Don't "sleep" on this one! Doctor Sleep joins the pantheon of "belated and actually great sequels to classic standalone movies that no one wanted" along with 2010, Blade Runner 2049, Psycho II, and Exorcist III. I love these types of sequels when they're able…

  • Jesus Is King: A Kanye West Film

    Jesus Is King: A Kanye West Film

    ★★★★½

    Jesus is King is nothing like one would expect from it. Is it a concert film? An actual movie? A screening of the album? It can’t really be fit into a simple little box like this. It is a total experience meant to celebrate faith and spirituality while showcasing the talent of Kanye West’s Sunday Service group as well as the mesmerizing architecture of James Turrell’s Roden Crater. What sets Jesus is King apart from anything else Kanye has ventured…

  • The Cat in the Hat

    The Cat in the Hat

    ★★★★★

    Bo Welch's magnum opus, Le Chat au Chapeau (2003) also known as "The Cat in the Hat", is one of the most daring and experimental films Hollywood has crafted in the 2000's. Never have I seen a film attack childhood trauma this strongly as well as be a self-deconstructive satire on the Hollywood industry and bastardization of children's media. No one except Bo Welch, who had worked on the production design for films such as Ghostbusters II and Edward Scissorhands,…

  • Vincent

    Vincent

    ★★★★½

    Tim Burton was 24 years old,
    He was very polite and did what he was told,
    For a man his age he was creative and radiant,
    And this skill shows in his short film Vincent.

    A modern masterpiece of gothic art
    It's a tale that impales through the heart
    A passion filled tribute to a cult horror favorite
    Is oozing with imagination and loving spirit.

    It's short and sweet
    It's rather melancholic
    It's a timeless lesson
    To not be hyperbolic…
