    Jesus Christ, what a brutal look at how dark this period in time was, and how horrid Matthew Hopkins was as a person. Obviously this isn't an exact retelling but I imagine the real Hopkins' behavior was probably worse rather than better.

    Vincent Price is amazing in this. What a fucking presence he has. My only complaints are that Stearne is a bit lucky getting away at one point, and the set/costume design isn't as good as what Hammer was…

    The Haunting

    Not my favorite haunted house movie but not bad either.

    There's a lot of patience in how everything unfolds, sometimes a little too much between notable occurences, but there are a few scenes that did feel really tense. Of course there's supernatural horror, but the main attraction is how it effects everyone in the house, especially the best part, the character and performance from Julie Harris.

    As is the case with most b&w movies, the lighting is a step above…

    I gotta see this at least a couple more times before writing anything out, but I can't believe there's someone that exists in 2019 that cares this much when making a movie. It feels almost like 99% of other modern movies shouldn't even be considered movies.

    Any words less than masterpiece being used to describe this movie are doing it a disservice. And I thought Bad Taste was amazing, this is pure magical insanity. I watched this and Evil Dead 2 in the same day, both first time watches, and I'm honestly upset Evil Dead 2 gets the amount of praise it does for a gore comedy when this exists... Brain Dead's got more character in its gore than most movies do as a whole. Absolutely amazing.
