The Empty Man

The Empty Man ★★★★

"I grew up in San Francisco."

Goddamn, David Prior's The Empty Man rips incredibly hard. It really flew under the radar last year but I’m calling it now that it's going to become a cult classic in just a few short years. This is a supernatural mystery procedural that drips with unsettling atmosphere & existential dread with elements of cosmic mythos, J-horror and ’70s paranoia. It's confidently directed at every turn, shot incredibly well and also this is rare modern horror movie that has the ambitions and scale of a epic, you just don't see movies in this genre done with this kind of scope anymore.
And that prologue rules!

It would make a great double bill with Angel Heart (1987).
