    Motherhood is so beautiful...

    Finally, FINALLY this franchise has reached the self-aware horror-themed silliness that I've always wanted! Watching The Addams Family was a formative experience in my life, and this scratches that same itch as a comedy horror.

    This is Chucky's New Nightmare, but also a fair bit of Freddy's Dead. Jennifer Tilly was the best part of Bride of Chucky, and in this we are treated to double the fun with Tilly, who masterfully portrays herself as an…

    Slight disclaimer on this movie for all the horror fans: this is not really a horror movie. I'd classify it more as a suspenseful sci-fi film. 

    I didn't quite see Jordan Peele's grand vision with this. Kicking things off with a lethargic first act, we are introduced with some mystery and establishing the main characters, but there's a severe lack of urgency or tension in the story. As we move into some more of the "why we came" content, and…

    Besides The Night House, which is excellent, I haven't cared all that much for David Bruckner's work. This early short of his certainly shows his penchant for making dark psychological horror films with overtures of physical violence, but never really settles into something thematically substantial.

    The host, a mix of Tucker Carlson and Pete Holmes, confusingly flipflops between righteousness and depression, all with overly-written monologues designed to instill menace. And it does, sorta, but the premise feels so artificial, and…

    Deputy Briggs: Well I'm in your face to stay, what are you gonna do about it!
    Flagg: 👁👅👁

    While fairly by-the-book in structure and look, The Blob is one of the higher-quality exemplars of this time period in studio horrors. It has enough self-awareness to have a few unexpected turns and surprising character deaths, but the real beauty of this film is in the titular monster. Don't worry about the logic of the monster, the effects are great and still…

    Labored breathing.
    Scraping metal.
    Maniacal laughter.
    Frenzied drums.
    Tetsuo: The Iron Man

    It's always a joy to find a film that widens your perception of what films can be, even if it doesn't work for me. And like many others on Letterboxd, I admire this film more than I enjoy it. The breakneck pacing never seems to let up, it's a non-stop assault on your senses and honestly, it's exhausting. Tsukamoto wants you to feel the panic, the discomfort, and…
