Son, The (2019)
A husband thinks his wife's environmental overprotectiveness towards their son is the reason she's keeping the boy from him. Everyone is intense, suspicious and naturally creepy. You clench to the finish line waiting in exasperation to find out who's what. It satisfies and saddles an unexpected happy ending that complements the horror. 17-Feb-2020
Selfie From Hell (2018)
I would have jumped, had reason backed it up. 13-Feb-2020
Locke & Key (2020-)
I don't question the magic of the keys, only where you stick them to achieve such magic. 10-Feb-2020
Thorough telling of the process a family must endure to indict a priest for raping their son. The priests creeped, the church perused, mama lifted while daddy struck and the lawyer slaughtered. The film was more vocal about explaining the details than the "woke" generation could ever handle. 09-Feb-2020
Honey Boy (2019)
Strange and toxic father/son relationship that propels the son's art. I don't understand why dad is a celebration and why Labeouf etches a dad from sketch comedy that diffuses further elaboration. He sounds like he never heard his dad talk. The film wrangles attention but delivering a statement that life's questions are easily answered, disavows the message just so it can temporarily cut the pain. 09-Feb-2020
Long Weekend (1978)
Naturists get punished for victimizing nature. A scary environmentalist panty creamer. 05-Feb-2020
Stranger, The (2020)
The wows were cross-stitched to perfection. 05-Feb-2020
I'm only two episodes in but I think it's about a future where snitching trends...like, "save the world" kind of..."trendy." I'm intrigued. 02-Feb-2020
Joaquin Phoenix is brilliant frightening insanity. The film weeps artistry and reflects on the development of poor mental health and the society that impedes its betterment. The swamp of darkness does not allow our villain joy. I believe that had he had a dance partner (Batman), the movie would have found some. 02-Feb-2020
Fifth Floor, The (1978)
Party girl suffering from strychnine poisoning is mistakenly locked up in a mental institution for trying to commit suicide. It comments frighteningly on mental health institutions, the psychos they hire to to treat them and the human error and danger that exists in psychiatric quackery. 30-Jan-2020
October Faction (2020-)
"The Americans" in the Buffyverse with its own ideas.
Twins united is a powerful concoction. He's gay with no tolerance for sweetness and of suppressed privilege. She questions why her life doesn't fulfill her essence. They both do everything to upset their parents. Their awakening untangles excitedly.
Family history keeps the mythology pressing on.
Daddy has a gun, grandma has a gun, they all have a gun but no one grips it like mama.
The show handles its business like a bullet - straight through - no bullshit - not for squeaky screamers.
"Big Bad" seems to be representing.
There are a variety of monsters, entanglements and enlightenments for an open world of writing fun stuff. 29-Jan-2020
It's the kind of creepy movie you take your significant other, to turn them off marriage. 27-Jan-2020
Invitation To Hell (1984)
It was a film better tolerated in the present but still a victim of its limitations.
There are golden nuggets:
Wes Craven kept it tight. The spacesuit caper and some action sequences spit art
Soleil Moon Frye does a spot-on imitation of Golem, before his time
La Lucci is a playful and committed demonic force. Tacky with hilarity, bitchiness and nerve
Robert Urich was pretty, in charge and in demand.
Saturn 5 (1980)
It literally reads, even in space, the Goldigger gets what she wants. The age difference is astronomical which sends charisma out the window. It probably would have played better with a spouse of equal experience. Farrah hadn't received her acting wings yet but she comes to life when she's experiencing pain (screaming, crying and panicking.) The robot is unfinished and ridiculous, the sets are TV comparable and the idea is no longer beneficial. 24-Jan-2020
Pacific Heights (1990)
Hitchcock nods of creepiness, Keaton's subtle conniving intruder and Griffith's stalwart inquisitor, keep it tense. 15-Jan-2020
It's a high art profile of a Batman villain directed by Friday The Thirteenth. Margret brings her heroine to life by embodying the excited frustration of her realistic innocence for magic. Her character is underwritten and suffers from "who cares" but she was in it. Hopkins is our favorite crazy man whose practice and natural talent always have a way of invading its space. It is not a clean performance. He hits as many times as he bounces but what he lands is electric. A film, that in time, might grow into something. 11-Jan-2020
