    Tribeca 2021 Film #18

    Ooh I know a lot of people are gonna disagree with me on this one but I loved this. This starts off as a slow-burn family drama but it ultimately escalates into someone absolutley fucking bonkers (like there's stuff evocative of the Suspira remake here, that kind of bonkers).  The dreams/flashbacks throughout worked so well to break up the action and give us backstory, but they also lead to some really cool moments as well (there's…

    ★★½

    Tobe Hooper is one of my favorite directors and I am a firm believer in the fact that the original Texas Chain Saw Massacre is the best directed horror film of all time, so I was really dissapointed in how I did not love this anywhere near as much as I thought I would.

    I was promised gonzo naked space vampire hijinks, and while Lifeforce does certainly have that, the majority of the nearly two hour run-time is just middle-aged British…

    How has it taken me this long to watch this absolute classic?

    This is just like objectively so much fun. Crazy gore, crazy sex (to the point of breaking up an actual real-life marriage), and some crazy fucking moments. Watch this one if haven't already.

    Jeffery Combs and Barbara Crampton forever.
