    The first hour’s folklore horror was not my favorite in the series, although the second half’s return to the 90s ties it all up pretty well.  

    Even though I was not overly invested in the series, I am very impressed by the interwoven nature of three very distinct horror styles, from teen 90s slasher, 70s slasher, to 1600s folklore horror, all whilst making history as a tentpole LGBTQ+ teen horror mini-series.  There is truly nothing quite like this, as far as I am aware.  Bravo.

    Because I have not read the book or seen the original adaptation, I…

    TIFF #17:

    As a huge fan of Louis CK, I was very excited about his new full length feature that he directed in... June of this year? Well that was quick. He purposely did not promote his new film in order to present to audiences who would have no idea what the feature would be about. He said during the Q&A that he likes the idea of doing this to add the element of surprise and anticipation of the unknown.…
