    Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Poor Jason, he has a rubbish holiday in this one. He gets stabbed in the eye with Stephen King’s pen, isn’t offered any cocaine, doesn’t once get to pet the dog, saves a girl from getting raped in an alley and receives no word of thanks, and has his face melted off with toxic waste. New York in the 80s was a total bummer.

    Midsommar

    ★★★★

    With Midsommar, Ari Aster has beckoned horror out from the shadows, drenched it in light, and scattered flower petals at its feet. Tense and shocking in places, suffering from a lack of urgency in others, and rarely surprising, this film is never not stunning to look at. Aster’s second is one I look forward to exploring and luxuriating in for its bold vision, even if it didn’t deliver the viceral, nerve-shredding punch I’d hoped for.

    ★★★★

    Creepy, shocking, heartbreaking, funny, beautifully performed. This film is important.
