    “In Heaven, everything is fine...”

    Henry (Jack Nance) is a simple, unassuming man living in a small apartment in a dystopian, over-industrialized Philadelphia slum.

There, bombs are dropped and ovens are emptied...

    ★★★

    Bayou satanic panic vibes, cool locales, beautiful witches, black magick, and gloomy atmosphere. A little chewy but the aesthetic portions make up for it.

    ★★★½

    Finally gave this a rewatch after not having seen it for about four or five years, and definitely dug it more on this watch. Feels very similar to Shivers, although I haven’t seen that one in just as long, so I guess I’m due for a rewatch of that soon as well. That said, Cronenberg can do no wrong and his roots are just as strong as his branches. A delightfully bleak and sleazy slice of Canadian horror.

It was kind of corny. I wasn’t sure whether to laugh throughout or what, because that’s what most of the teenagers…

    “If you couldn’t dance, what would you do?”
    “Hmm...suicide.” 

    Wow. 
    I just had the chance to experience this at a theater for an exclusive, late showing and I know now that seeing this on the big screen is the definitive way to watch it. It should be watched on the biggest screen with the biggest sound system, period. I’m pretty sure the neighboring movies HATED us because the volume was pumped the fuck up. At first I thought it was…
