As a Die Hard and Rambo fan I throw my full support behind this. Any horror movie that doesn't take its sweet ass time drawing me in is probably not gonna even have the competence to get me with a single jumpscare, let alone make me afraid to go outside for a cigarette after its done.

Sandy Wexler

Another Sandler movie. Not bad, but not amazing. Something to watch late at night.

It is crazy well crafted and goes deep into its main character's mind. It also has a dark, brooding vibe and a lot of feminist social commentary but doesn't beat you over the head with it.

Good characterization, good atmosphere, and depth that is in service to the narrative are pretty much all I need to know.

Rosemary's Baby is the Citizen Kane of horror movies; you'll either find it to be a masterpiece, or boring as fuck.

A friend of mine has been producing bit-perfect laserdisc captures of some great musical art films of the 80s. He sent me copies of Brian Eno's Thursday Afternoon and The Kitchen Presents: Two Moon July (1986) starring Laurie Anderson, Philip Glass, David Byrne, Brian Eno, and others. TMJ really captures the explosion of the avant-garde pop scene in the 1980s.

It's great to have both the official DVD and the laserdisc of Thursday Afternoon, though neither are as true to the artist's intent as watching it on a CRT television flipped on its side.

Both are welcome additions to my library.

Here's the Eno film:



And a few highlights from Two Moon July:

Fun fact about Rosemary's Baby:

Spoiler for Spoiler:
When Mia Farrow gets the phone call from the actor who suddenly went blind, opening the career door for her husband, Polanski had Tony Curtis make the call without Farrow knowing it. Farrow and Curtis were friends so her confused reaction trying to place the voice was 100% genuine.


AWESOME and totally creepy movie. Essential.
