    Poltergeist II: The Other Side

    ★★½

    Though the ‘Spielbergian’ touch is without a doubt missed, there are still some fun sequences here, including a bit with braces and a tequila worm that Craig T Nelson has to barf up because it makes him a horndog.

    As fun as those sequences are however, the truth is if there was ever a time the non presence of a producer and director are felt, it is here. As without Spielberg and without Hooper, Poltergeist II, though every bit as monstrous as the first film, just feels kind of.....there.

    Now besides the obvious -I was a teenager at the time after all- I have no idea why I have always been utterly fascinated by the period of time in the early 90s when erotic thrillers were all the rage. Everyone from Madonna (Body of Evidence) to Lara Flynn f’n Boyle (The Temp) were making them, and I would devour them all.

    A perfect horror film with an amazing payoff, proving that Black Phillip didn't curse this script or direction.

    Eighth Grade

    ★★★★

    I really respect movies that have the nerve to not over complicate their plot in order to build fake tension. That make its protagonist someone who we get to know not through unreal situations, but interactions with other characters. That builds to a conclusion that isn't a 'happy ever after' scenario as much as a new beginning.

    Needless to say, I respect Eighth Grade A LOT.
