    Brian De Palma Marathon film #22

    There is a line you cross, you don't never come back from. Point of no return. Dave crossed it. I'm here with him. That means I am going along for the ride. The whole ride. All the way to the end of the line, wherever that is

    There is a fascinating Q&A with Brian De Palma conducted by Jake Coyle where the topic of directors being in their "pinnacle" comes up. Coyle then asked…

    Ghostbusters: Afterlife

    ★★★★

    I haven't been on here for a while. I think I had burned myself out with Scavenger hunts that it got to the point where it wasn't fun anymore. By coming onto Letterboxd, I was kind of trying to reclaim my younger days of being a potential film geek, consuming films day in day out. The thing is, I watched films in those days because I wanted to, not because they were part of a task or anything. My favourite…

    (Prompt 19: "Now let's dive into some J-Horrror, but it must be a Japanese horror film that came out before the year of 1990!")

    This isn't your usual sort of toy.

    Wow, some real freaky stuff going on here... The animation is fantastic. I forget how great anime can be. Wicked City really gives off a tech-noir vibe with its hard boiled detective characters, use of voice-over narrative, its futuristic setting and use…

    Horror Hunt #26 (August 2020) Day #7
    (Clue 7: " Watch something based on real-world folklore or legend ")

    We will conquer this wilderness. It will not consume us

    The Witch is a good old fashioned psychological horror film with lots of tension, paranoia, and mystery. It draws the viewer in with its slow building, intriguing plot and keeps their attention with the mysterious atmosphere. The cast all do a fantastic job in performing their respective roles and portray plenty…

    Daily Horror Hunt #25 (July 2020) Day #3
    (Clue 3: "Watch any horror film that features a vampire")

    I ain't a person any more. I don't know what I am

    A nice take on the vampire mythology and the whole thing is played ambiguously and deliberately doesn't follow the normal conventions of the genre. If fact, it is never explained what they are - it's just a given. The tone of the film is gritty and more down to earth…
