    There is a stiltedness to this that helped it cross over into nightmarish territory for me. Everyone but Regis Toomey enunciates at half speed as if high on cough syrup while Toomey spends the whole movie imitating a drunken slur. Truly a bizarre performance.

    There are moments that bring to mind David Lynch and Guy Maddin for sure. Recommended if you find the awkwardness of certain talkies endearing. Also love this as an early dirty cop movie.

    Really does feel like slipping into a dream, floating from scene to scene in a similar manner to something like Phantasm, discarding logic. Beautiful locations, minimal burdensome story. I watched just before drifting to sleep, the only way it should be seen, maybe. It felt like only half an hour had passed when the end credits hit. This will probably become a late night staple for me.

    A sun-drenched fantasy. This might be Jess making his very-Franco version of I Walked with a Zombie. The blonde goddess is made up like Jean Harlow. It was a pleasure to let this movie wash over me on a bright Saturday afternoon. The infinity of mirrors in the bedrooms parallels the unending call to the voodoo ritual for our heroine; if only the repetition of the quarantine days were anything like THAT.
