    Invasion of the Body Snatchers

    ★★★★★

    This movie is the entire aesthetic of A24 horror films. It feels so modern in that it could’ve been made right alongside those movies of the last 3 or so years and made without changing a thing. The camera movements, the eerie yet pulsing score and loud spontaneous cracks, stacked on top of dramatically personal terror. Filled with tension and dread and a certain apprehension of what’s lurking just ahead in the next scene.

    This is a masterpiece.

    Mars Attacks!

    ★★★★½

    It’s amazing how much of this movie sticks on the wall that it was thrown on. I love it.

    Almost every gag is funny and witty, and they just keep coming. And while definitely being a pastiche, it certainly works as it’s own thing. It’s an odd little movie - just as odd and imaginative as Burton’s most idiosyncratic works.

    Tina rules OK? Shoulda been her and Rachel throughout the whole movie. And Halloween 6 too, while we're at it.

    The tagline on here is "The most deliriously romantic horror picture ever made!" That is certainly not a hot take. Christopher Lee and Daliah Levi are great together and Bava does an excellent job of building romantic tension between the two. You also get scrumptious use of shadows and a memorable, soaring score in this expertly told gothic tale.

    The Brides of Dracula

    ★★★★½

    "Count Dracula, monarch of all vampires, is dead. But his disciples live on..."

    Terence Fisher, man. Awesomely directed Hammer movie with fun flourishes and expert touches of surprises that keep this one alive throughout. And that ending is very, very good. Maybe a quintessential "Hammer feeling" ending up there with the one in Curse of the Werewolf.

    Oh yeah this doesn't have Dracula in it. Rather, a few vampire women who can be pretty creepy at times. Lots of weird…
