  • The Day of the Beast

    The Day of the Beast

    ★★★

    A priest may or may not have discovered the Antichrist is going to be born.  So in order to figure out where an stave off the apocalypse, he naturally decides to commit all the sins in order to win over the devil and get on his good side.   

    What follows is a pretty funny horror comedy.  It meanders all over the place.  The priest teams up with a chubby metal dude who believes in the quest.   They team up with a tv show psychic faker too.  Lots of insane violence.  A good time.

    ★★★

    Sunday afternoon The Last Drive In with Joe Bob Briggs — first time watch for me.  I had seen the box cover at the video store way back in my highschool days and always wanted to catch it.  But there was no way I could bring that home.  It takes awhile to get to the point — which is big time satanic revenge — but when it does… hoo-boy it goes big time fun huge.  Floating possessed Clint Howard as Coopersmith?  CHECK.  Roaming ravenous demon pigs?  CHECK!  decapitations-a-go-go? TRIPLE CHECK.   Great fun once we got there.

    Psycho Goreman

    ★★★½

    An absolute blast of a movie.  Picture ET, except these jerk kids find a super powered villain who only dreams of death and destruction.  It constantly surprises, tons of laughs and lots and lots of latex and beyond creature effects.  Old school practical gore and monsters.  A real treat of a movie at the Beyond Fest.

    The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

    ★★★★★

    An incredibly beautiful, violent and funny heartfelt ode to the cinematic west.    And within the middle of this feature movie of western short stories, there lies an ode to the death of cinema.   All while streaming on Netflix.   I wish that I could have seen it in a movie theater but am grateful for Netflix to put it out there.   

    The Coen Brothers certainly know how to film faces too.   


    I hope there’s a film print out there that will show at the New Beverly.
