scarecrow video #horror #vivaphysicalmedia
This movie is played so straight with a lot of the interactions among the townspeople and sheriff/families sucking you in and making you forget that you're watching a movie with the absolute cornball premise of children with black manicures hugging people to their goopy deaths.
Final shot is one for the books.
"I tried to tell him that our lives are gonna change because of this, he just told me to not bother talking because he was gonna dub the video with the soundtrack from ERASERHEAD."
That line made me actually almost spit take. I 'rewound' it like five times. This movie is everything. The femme punk soundtrack, the diy-vibe, the realness of sex and friendships, the openness in dialogue about female sexuality, rape, pregnancy, gender roles, power dynamics. And they all work at a fucking movie theater.
