Blood Beat ★★★★

I really, really, REALLY want to know what the hell kind of drugs they were on when they came up with the idea for a movie about a housewife in rural Wisconsin who gets possessed by the spirit of an ancient samurai Christmas...because CLEARLY it was some good stuff and, honestly, I need some.

JFC this was weird. Which means I totally love it. Really, I don’t know that I entirely understood what happened and judging from some other reviews, it’s not the VHS quality of the version I watched. Apparently, it just doesn’t always make sense but when the bananas are this ripe, I’m fine with that.

This has some wonderful atmosphere, a great setting, and some truly surreal sequences. It also has some hysterical special effects because 80’s. I am definitely putting this on my “to buy” list and adding it to my yearly holiday rotation.
