3 Asian horror films (2/3)
At this point, I'll watch anything that Bong Joon-ho makes. Seriously, he is just such a good director.
One of three horror movies that I can remember that made me cry. What the hell, man.
3 films directed by or starring a POC (1/3)
By far and away the best horror anthology I've ever seen in my life.
You've got "Rogue Cop Revelation," where three white cops murder an outspoken black politician. The fourth cop—a rookie black cop who quits the force and becomes an alcoholic due to the trauma—enacts revenge by bringing the white cops within the grasp of the politician's ghost, who then fucks shit up.
You've got "Boys…
2 Hammer films (2/2)
Man, was there anything Christopher Lee couldn't do?
Takes a little bit to get going, but once it tightens up, it becomes a really tense take on Frankenstein. I wish I had watched this before Dracula; I don't know why, but that feels like a much more cohesive way to view these.
My first movie back in a theatre!
I should have gone to see Lamb instead.
Where the fuck do I even start?
Halloween Kills wastes all of the goodwill that its 2018 predecessor built up. 2018 wasn't perfect, but it at least showed that the filmmaking team understood the legacy it was taking on. Here, David Gordon Green—and the screenwriters—doesn't seem to know where to go or what to do with the franchise, or…
A kaiju or Kong film (1/1)
8 Decades (7/8; 1950's)

Birdemic 2 was a terrible movie, but it was worth watching because the depths of its terribleness plumbs a wealth of humor.
This is terrible because it is boring.
Also, and I don't know if this was my TV or something, but the Criterion "remaster" looks like absolute garbage.
A film set in the woods (1/1)
I don't know if it's necessary or even helpful to compare this with the original. Looking at it on its own merits, it's an insane, blood-soaked, frenetic gore fest, and if that's simply what it was trying to be, then 👍
The Evil Dead is my all-time favorite horror movie, and what I love about it so much is that yes it's gory and the practical effects are fucking…
The WORST Part 2 you haven't seen (1/1)
8 Decades (6/8; 2010's)
Literally everything about this is terrible.
But when they "rescue" the cowboy girl out of the cabin, and Will is like "what's is your name?" and she's like "Jessica" and he's like "my name is Will. I'm a screenwriter," I laughed for a good five minutes straight.
