    The Inner Scar

    ★★★½

    If Wonder Wharf ever develops a robust enough repertory cinema scene to show this it will definitely become Tina Belcher's favorite movie/creation myth of choice. It's horses and butts all the way down.

    Vampire Quinceañera - Hoop-Tober Part Deux (4.0)

    Yeah no thanks, the only completely sexless, cardboard-thin take on Dracula I'm interested in is the one that comes with bat-shaped marshmallows.

    ★★★★

    We only ever see the "S" on that huge blinking neon sign outside but I'm pretty sure the rest of it reads "-U-B-T-E-X-T."

    Hell Is Other People (Wiping Their Grubby Mitts On Your Rustic But Tasteful West Elm Furniture, Apparently)

    Undeniably intense and thrilling in fits and starts, suggesting all sorts of potentially interesting avenues the film proceeds to flatly ignore in favor of thuddingly literal high school English symbolism, idiotic dorm room philosophy, and a general vibe of nominally-self-effacing-but-actually-self-aggrandizing schmuckery that can only be described as "Aronofsky-esque."
