Phantasm ★★★

What a persistently batshit surreal vision of a movie! I’m not gonna say it was well made or anything, but it had complete conviction and a weird sort of heart. There are moments when Mike looks like he’s come to terms with the fact that he’s stuck in hell and nothing will ever get better, and you can’t help but feel for him.

Also, there’s a gom jabbar.
