    ★★★½

    Move along folks wasn't the Peele sophomore slump we expected. Yes it had a painfully obvious ending and its mid section relied too much on worn-out ✂ slasher tropes. But I enjoyed it enough, loads of neat GenX film references, easter eggs plus fun inclusions (like all the 11:11 numerology stuff & rorschach test titles) that's sure to give horror/fan theorists and online nut-jobs their moneys worth.

    I Spit on Your Grave: Deja Vu

    ★★

    The most offensive rape in the film, is the rape of the viewers endurance tolerance. 40 years since I Spit on Your Grave, the originals director Meir Zarchi and the actress who played Jennifer (Camille Keaton) make a direct sequel.

    Essentially South Parks - Pink Eye episode without the Hitler & Wookie costumes and Trey & Matts inventive situational wit. Don't get me wrong Rainn Wilson beating & torching the undead shit out of the kids was fucking hilarious, trouble was the remaining several characters were like his straight man. It didn't spread the funny. Shame because it had Breaking Bads Badger and Losts Hurley who are genuinely funny guys wasted in uneventful support roles.
