Night of the Creeps (1986)

It’s probably a bad sign when you keep having that movie recommended, and your response is to finally buy it after ten years, put it on a shelf, ignore it, eventually buy it in a different format and then finally watch it because this time you felt like, y’know, two unwatched purchases is getting a […]

Hereditary (2018)

I took myself to a “manually assembled” double feature today (that is: I went to two movies in a row), with a re-view of The Holy Mountain planned weeks ago, and a viewing of Hereditary on the back of its ad campaign, trailers, and a recommendation that preceded my showing by about an hour and a half. I’d […]

A Trivial Post on a Funny Thing:

There are a lot of characters in comics with super-convoluted histories, or confusing legacies. Hawkman is notorious for the impossibility of consolidating his identities and origins at this point.

The Babadook (2014)

Yes it’s the other super well-reviewed horror film from 2014, since I already covered the other! I’m not even going to pretend I know where I had this one pointed to me. Maybe it was the comment sections I was still hanging around in 2014. Maybe it was someone who knows my taste in horror. Maybe it was […]
