    WELCOME
    TO
    RED ROCK

    I had such a good time visiting! Red Rock West, with its spin on a Blood Simple plot, unravels itself wonderfully. Bouncing to and fro the town limits with genuine suspense. A lovely score - fit to be an instrumental in some Chris Isaak album lost in time - with classic country tunes playing on the radio (even Dwight Yoakam shows up in a fun little cameo), all drenched in beautiful reds and blues (shame Reshovsky…

    You're into horror movies, I can dig it.

    Don't know if I could even qualify this as that. It's New Wave-y blaxploitation vamp and pure arthouse gobbledygook. It's wonderful!
    There's excitement in confusion, but ain't ashamed to admit I got a little lost. Had to watch it again.
    And (wow!) Marlene Clark is even more beautiful than I remembered.

    This ridiculously elaborate essay by Manthia Diawara and Phyllis Klotman did help a bunch. It goes through the film like I…

    A botch-job.
    The kind of retcon that only makes both "movies" worse. And I even kinda sorta liked the original...
    A total botch-job.

    Phantasm III: Lord of the Dead

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    Yep, just as I feared... Now I'll have to splurge even more and get that Arrow boxset.

    Back to those magically bonkers childlike roots, Lord of the Dead is wonderfully nuts, totally implausible (even in its weird world), and took me back to being a kid reading Darren Shan (more specifically the first coupla Demonata books).

    It's, uh, it's awesome. Yeah, that's the word.

    Train to Busan

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    I had a hunch I wouldn't really like Train to Busan, but like many times before, my gut lead me astray. It's actually kind of great!

    While I appreciated the initial calm before the storm, once things kicked off my impression was that it's, simply put, less interesting Rec. As the locomotive plot nicely chugged along, though, it did eventually win me over. As far as action-horror goes, I'd wager it's about as enjoyable as Rec 2, maybe even more.…
