    ***One minor spoiler if you perceive it in that way****

    It's not a masterpiece, it's not Get Out but it is a good movie. A horror movie to be exact, it screams horror! But it's not very scary at all, some jump scares work, it is chilling and suspenseful. But no outright terror, which is fine though, because it doesn't have to be. I'm not terrified of The Thing, but it creeps me out and is still a good horror…

    The start of Hooptober with film #1 Mandy! This is for the decades section, being the 2010's.

    "I'm your god now"

    Goodbye Hereditary, hello Mandy! My new film of the year, or perhaps with time my new favourite film, because this was fucking awesome!
    Such a beast of a movie, Panos really knows how to craft a movie, even if it's as simple as a 80s throwback revenge horror! Everything is turned right up, the gore, the…

    A brilliant examination of humanity, which is both powerful and moving. Every other line is strikingly profound, and resonates deeply.

    A beautiful one time picture, directed and starring David Byrne, whom is charismatic and intriguing. John Goodman steals the show however, as the man looking for love, which gives him purpose.

    ★★★★

    No way near as gruesome as I thought it was? And a slow burner at that, which I enjoy very much, and the finale is worth the wait.

    Full of nightmare imagery, an interesting look into an aspect of Japanese society, the effect of environment on development and the abuse of a position in power.

    Of course well crafted by Miike, and acted very well, Asami is very unsettling. Another gem of Asian cinema, and specifically J horror!

    I see plenty of reviews of this movie, bashing its scariness. Funnily enough considering the type of movie it is, it's not awash with lame jump scares that are apparently the measurement for scares these days. Also the scariness of a horror film is not a valid criticism, the genre is not called a scary film. The role of the genre is to horrify in multiple different ways, and if it scares you well that's great because they can do…

    Really really fun 80s cult classic! Featuring two strong ass ladies! and a big ol heap of human dust, and mutant cannibal freaks! Not that there's actually much of that in the film, but when they're on screen it's cool.
    Especially the police officer freaks in the dream, they were so cool! And I believe feature on the Arrow Video release of this!

    Strange that a lot of cult classics are directed by someone, who either has made barely any…
