    19. Made in France

    The cast members of a gay porn production company are being heinously murdered by a masked killer (whose methods, I think, are best left to be revealed in the moment of viewing, so I will avoid spoiling that gem of a detail.) Meanwhile, their lovelorn director uses the savage acts as inspiration for her latest film (Anal Fury V, retitled as Homocidal).

    Sleazy though it may sound,…

    Loved it! Katharine Isabelle SLAYS in the leading role. I appreciate that we have some time to really get to know Mary before the trauma occurs. Her transformation is instantaneous, a point of criticism for some, but I think it's clear that she goes forward in the only way she can manage. I do agree with others that the writing is lacking in the second half. There's…

    A disappointing bore. I liked the setup well enough, but none of the humor or creepiness landed for me. I'll be sticking with Black Christmas as my sorority-sister-slaughter film of choice.

    51. A film you haven't seen that someone else watched as part of last year's challenge

    Slimy fiends are wreaking havoc on a town that is slow to figure out the cause. From heads of lettuce to human heads, nothing is safe. This is at its best when touring around town to sneak a peek at the lives of the unsuspecting victims and behold the absolute carnage that follows. It gets a bit dull when stuck with the city officials in charge of saving the day, but some things can be forgiven in exchange for killer slugs and una muerte viscosa.

    WOW, that abrupt ending shook me. In that moment, I was truly just another spectator of "The Truman Show" waiting to see what would come next.

    This concept is so well done. I don’t think the fear of being watched is a particularly uncommon one, and this movie manages to address all the ways in which one might try to convince themselves this couldn’t be possible and smashes them to bits. The result is…

    No other movie makes me laugh like this one does. Judge me if you must, but Anna Faris is comedic perfection in this cautionary tale of a casual stoner who gets the munchies and unknowingly doubles down with a batch of pot cupcakes. Every single scene is gold. I love her so much. Whenever I go a few years without watching this I get worried I won't find it as funny as before, but it never lets me down.

    "Jane, why do you have a photo of President Garfield on your mantel?"
    "Because I like lasagna, of course."
