    Sleepaway Camp

    ★★★½

    Great opening credits sequence. Shocking ending. Some decent stuff in between. I absolutely love the endlessly crass dialogue amongst the campers, counselors and other miscellaneous employees at Camp Arawak.

    The Conjuring

    ★★★★

    This is one of those rare instances in which a horror movie really targeted towards the mainstream, within the past decade or so, totally landed for me. The theatrical experience for this was a pleasant surprise. There are shades of Poltergeist with the story centering around a relatable family that you want to root for and the fictionalized versions of Ed and Lorraine Warren work well as almost religious ghostbuster-type heroes. The acting is mostly strong, minus a disinterested Ron Livingston…

    Just brilliant film making. De Palma is an absolute technician with the camera. This is unquestionably a horror classic and in the upper echelon of Stephen King adaptations. Telekinesis aside, the topic of high school bullying resonates for everyone to some degree. There is way more depth to Carrie than you’d probably expect, with the limited locations and scope. It’s also up there for most satisfying revenge stories.
