    Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel

    definitely could have just been like 40 minutes. lots of cringey fluff and weird sources

  • The Conjuring 2

    The Conjuring 2

    ★★★½

    definitely lower on james wan’s totem pole of horror excellency - with a distinct feeling of christian propaganda? - but still belongs in the modern horror canon and showcases some of wan’s stronger signatures, including impressive play with focal points and panning

    ★★★★½

    ★★★★★

    whewwww.....this movie is so astounding and i really don't think i'll ever watch it again or if i do i'll be more prepared. sure, times have changed, but being a woman and struggling with mental illness is still hard. people want to compartmentalize you into a palatable category – wife, daughter, girlfriend – and when they don't their frustrations reverberate throughout your life. there is little genuine understanding, just a rush for you to feel "better" – whatever that means – as quickly as…
