    Messiah of Evil

    The plot, what little there is of one, is very Lovecraftian - endless flight through a seaside town, followers of an obscure sect pursuing you even in your sleep, locked up safe in your motel. But there's an overriding voice that is reminiscent of Shirley Jackson - events taking on intimate, sinister undertones that echo and echo through claustrophobic domesticity just starting to sprawl out into a post-war infinity.

    Here, we arrive at that same gas station twenty some odd…

    So...this may sound like midlife crisis crazy talk, but I've had it with here/where my life is at right now, and so I've come to a very important decision on where my journey is taking me:

    Grovers Bend, Kansas.

    I am serious. It looks amazing. I want E.T's mom to be my mom. I wouldn't even mind having to live on a farm because I would have an awkward Billy Zane to tell me about what life is like in…

    I enjoyed this movie quite a bit, but it made me realize something. I do not miss my job at all. That part where the diver has been told he can't go inside the sunken ship and she's talking up all the beautiful fish and coral reefs and he yells out 'boring!' was most of my experiences working in tourism.

    I mean I'll go back if it's that or starve because something tells me no one's gonna pay me to…

    Pre-60s horror Tuesdays:

    The main character Jacqueline (who still feels like the main character despite being onscreen very little and only showing up about a third of the way thru this) reveals a dangerous secret to her psychiatrist. Back then, gayness was a mental disorder called 'homesexuality' and (especially if you were female, but this assumption is purely based on the statistical likelihood of being considered the legal property of others more often than men were) you could be forcibly…

    There are a lot of horror movies I just watch, either for fun or to unwind. This is not one of them. A lot of horrors will quickly move through a group leaving only one survivor, yet every kill relieves a bit of tension. It helps that in a lot of the movies I watch, the kills are brief, sometimes nearly instantaneous. The camera moves quickly from kill shot to a blank, unseeing stare. It's over now, for that victim.…
