    Day 19 of spooky films. 19/31

    Uhhh. I'm not quite sure what I just watched. I was intrigued the whole way through. But the problem is, it's a slow burn for very little payoff.

    Another review said how much of a shame it was that we had to wait for the end for the payoff, for what could have been an interesting event in the film.

    I recommend watching it, but temper your expectations. There's not a lot of questions answered. Great characters and performances from everyone, and a great idea. Shame it didn't go further.

    Some good practical effects, but a weak story and uninspired overall. I don't know what Heather Langenkamp was thinking producing this.

    If you wanna put yourself through this, it's on Netflix

    Day 16 of spooky films. 16/31

    As a directorial debut from the man who went on to do Blue Ruin and Green Room, it's a bit of a shock. A dark, satirical comedy with strong slasher elements.

    It feels like the work of a cynic tired of the indie art scene. Someone fed up with people trying to push torture porn boundaries and calling it art. But also someone with a sense of humor.

    It's a fairly topical film ultimately, with a strong finish. I'd be willing to watch it again.

    Don Coscarelli and Joe R. Lansdale? A match made in heaven. Sprinkle in some Bruce Campbell as Elvis and Ossie Davis as JFK and you've got a fantastic and hilarious flick.
