  • The Devil

    The Devil

    ★★★★

    The devil went down to Poland on a clearing spree. 
    Psychotic and confounding, highlighted by a score to match.  Also not lacking in humor, such as the scene when the little person throws dirt in Jacob’s face to break up a fight. 
    Lots of mention of Faust in other reviews, which I get, but I saw it more as a devil’s plaything. “It is so sad to be a toy in someone else’s hands. ”
    There is beauty in the world. It’s man which is ugly.

  • Dead Man Walking

    Dead Man Walking

    ★★

    How you can make a movie pairing together Wings Hauser and Jeffrey Combs boring is beyond me. Has some glimmers of inspiration but loses all its steam after chainsaw Russian roulette (at the very beginning)

    Junesploitation: New(ish) horror

    Takes a lot for me to want to watch a zombie film these days. I didn’t hate the kid

  • Wrinkles the Clown

    Wrinkles the Clown

    ★★½

    Fantastic Fest ya 3 round 4.
    Wanted more examples of children getting terrified or voicemails of them crying. Yes, I know what that says about me. 
    I did enjoy the “twist” toward the end and the man behind Wrinkles comparison of what he does to parents threatening their children with going to hell.
