    Riders of the Whistling Skull


    I was previously familiar with this as being the title of a song by Bill Moseley/Buckethead's group The Cornbugs. This was a pretty boring hokey throw-away Western, so I'm just going to post the link to that song and move on.

    I'm glad I live in a world where mythic legends like Choptop and Buckethead, who are divided by their inclination toward good and evil, can come together for their love of music <3

    Pet Sematary II


    This was always my favorite of the two films. It's not scary but it has a lot more texture and bizarre shit happening. It shares themes with two other favorites that I watched frequently in the early 90's. Wes Craven's New Nightmare and Hello Mary Lou Prom Night 2. There's the movie star Mom electrocution scene, she in particular has always reminded me of Mary Lou. I can't fully explain the New Nightmare connection, my child brain found some similarity…

    I did one teeny tiny measly little wrap day in wardrobe for this movie, so I won't rate it. I did love it and I'm very proud. As a result of this I met Jon Hamm at my friend's birthday party which took place at a skating rink and our interaction was as follows...

    I went to the snack bar, Hamm rolls up. We had briefly met earlier.

    Jon:...... Did ya get a corndog?

    Me: Yeah...

    Jon: Niiiiiiice

    There may have been more but that's all I was able to process.

    Death Spa


    This is exactly what I needed. Sometimes I get really wrapped up with work and my movie watching suffers. I start to forget who I am and it becomes a this depressing spiral. 'Death Spa' reset my battery. It hits all of the sweet spots. Effervescent beams. Just just soak it up like a girl in a high wasted bikini absorbing UV rays from a hot pink tanning bed. This is as close to the sensation that 'Dr. Caligari' left me with as any movie ever has. This was a pretty fucking zen.
