    "I will never, ever, EVER know what it's like to be a black person in this country. But I do know what an asshole is."

    A fairly mediocre, middle of the road comedy with incredible talent but not much else backing it up. Jonah Hill and Lauren London have cute chemistry, but the real stars of this 2020s Meet The Parents retread are Eddie Murphy and Julia Louis-Dreyfuss. While I definitely found myself pondering the racial relations portrayed in the…

    "There's no one bigger than the Kardashians."

    Fuck the Kardashians.

    Free Kai.

    I don't know if "oblivious" is the correct word to describe Colette Camden's attempt at a documentary here, but it's the best I've got. I don't understand how one can meticulously document a subject whilst willfully ignoring their plight in favor of sanitized, corporate talking heads unless one were complicit in the subject's exploitation. The Hatchet Wielding Hitchhiker is perhaps the most exploitative film I've ever had the…

    "I want you to round up every redhead in the city and put the screws to 'em."

    A Lizard in a Woman's Skin definitely does not go anywhere near as hard as its poster does. Before the screening, one of the presenters at The Music Box claimed that this is better than anything Dario Argento had ever done. After watching the movie I can safely say that claim is a bit of an overreach.

    "Well, here I go again!"

    Nigel Bach DM'ed me on twitter to say he'd bought a copy of my book. I was incredibly flattered. I told Nigel I'd watch The Way In on Vimeo to celebrate, but he told me I could watch it with ads for free on Vudu. Thank you Nigel, you're a real one.

    As for Bad Ben: The Way In, I think it's one of my favorites in the series so far. The stakes are higher,…

    "I haven't watched a scary movie since the first half of Ghost Dad!"

    Comedy and horror go hand-in-hand. Joseph and Vanessa Winter present a masterclass in this concept with their livestreaming-inspired found footage flick Deadstream! The laughs are incredible, and the scares are insanely well done. This is a massive crowd-pleaser, and shockingly one of my favorites of the year!

    I got to see this at a late night screening at The Music Box ahead of it's Shudder premiere. If…
