Won't rest until I've seen every Eurohorror film that's worth a damn.

    Friday the 13th Part 2

    ★★★

    Marginally better than the first one overall imo even though it's weaker in some key aspects.

    [Seems like there was no embargo for the Sydney screening so here are some quick structure-less thoughts!!]

    As with Unbreakable before it, I appreciate how Shyamalan somehow maintains a deliberate grasp on the tones he wants to convey despite the film taking inherently silly comic book tropes and using them as one of the serious thematic focal points. Glass is far more of a tonal wildcard than Unbreakable was though. I presume a lot of people are going to read…
