    Watched this with the family, it did not go over well. This movie is the sludge at the bottom of a barrel, and it's goddamn beautiful.

    Really wild and raunchy interpretations of one of my favourite Lovecraft short stories. Jeffrey Combs was great as Herbert West and really captured the creepy mannerisms of the character. Awesome effects and score too. The opening sequence was awesome and had me grinning.

    I see what all the hype is about! Not only is this show entertaining as hell, but it's also really well made with some great characters and effective drama. I can't say I was surprised by a lot of the events of the show, but it was still a blast.

    Really cool, comprehensive overview of 80's horror. It reaffirms my deep love of horror and why I have such an appreciation for the genre. There's just so much passion and creativity behind these movies, and the cast, crew, and creators clearly love what they do. That being said, despite the lengthy runtime, the structure doesn't allow for too much depth or new observations about horror. Also, I'd have loved more exploration of international horror films.

    Our president's crazy, did you hear what he said?

    I wasn't expecting this to be such a cathartic viewing experience, but given what is happening around us it filled me with a lot of positive energy.

    I absolutely loved this movie. Part of me wanted to close my eyes and vibe to the glorious music, but I was totally captivated by the outstanding sets and wonderful camera work, not to mention the dancing, which was inspiring to say the least.…
