    This will be the LAST movie that I see with my MoviePass as I canceled it this week. After 3 weeks of trying to see a movie with it, this was the first movie it allowed me to finally see. Ah wells... the noble experiment is now over for me. I will be moving on. HOWEVER... it seems very fitting that the movie I end…

    Film #01 in my Miyazaki Madness & Ghibli Goodtimes Film Fest.

    *****

    Miyazaki makes his first animated film set in Japan, and it is a glorious tribute to the Japan of his childhood. Beautiful vistas of the Japanese countryside lovingly rendered, it is both pastoral and soothing.

    You can tell how much these amazing images of tranquility and natural beauty meant to Miyazaki in how carefully they are drawn and focused upon. It's utterly delightful.

    We experience all of this through…

    There's a PROWLER on the loose.
    End of Plot Summary.

    That aside... Tom Savini's makeup and effects design here is top-notch. Some great kills and gags. Several gore-tastic moments to tune in for.

    Oh, it should be mentioned that the killer uses a PITCHFORK to kill with for the most part. Sometimes he uses a…

    Sooooo... an asshole grows out of Marilyn Chambers' armpit.. and out of that asshole comes a spike demon that turns people into zombies.

    Okay. I'm in.

    It's my second time to see this movie and I must say, I think it disturbed me even more this time around.

    And, it's further evidence that Cronenberg was a weirdo.

    "...all is vanity..."

    Fuckity fuck, fuck me.
    This is awesome.

    I mean fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuckin' awesome.

    The first 10-20 minutes of this movie contain some of the best imagery I've ever seen on film. Truly jaw-dropping and incredible.

    (Turns out this is only the 3rd film I've seen from 1926. So I've got some work to do…

    Oddly, this is my first Michael Powell film. Gotta watch more by this guy. This movie was EXTREMELY well done.

    What makes it so great is the empathy that Powell creates with the killer. Mark (the killer) is just plain nuts. But he's struggling with it. The dude KNOWS he's sick and that there is…
