    A Ghost Waits

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    My three star rating is just to indicate how torn on this film I am.

    For 95% of A Ghost Waits I loved it, 4 stars at least. But that ending... I don’t know how to feel about that ending. I almost think this movie should have a content warning, because I think some people might have a real adverse reaction to where this otherwise charming film goes.

    So, here starts the spoiler: the film ends up coming very close…

  • Talk to the Dead

    Talk to the Dead

    ★★★½

    Probably the least scary of the Next Horror trilogy (the others being The Crone and Cult), but definitely my favorite of the series. It’s a fairly silly premise and the beginnings of the film did not fill me with confidence, but I was eventually won over by what turned out to be an exploration of grief and the way it can consume your life.

    The Boogie Man Will Get You

    ★★★

    Boris Karloff in another 'mad doctor' role, although this one has a more comedic bent. It isn't quite parodying his famous film persona, but the film certainly is aware of his place in the public consciousness. It's silly, maybe not entirely successful, but also swiftly paced with a genial tone. Like all good movies of this type, it ends in a satisfying clash of several disparate plot points coming together at once.

    And I could not get enough of Peter Lorre's pocket cat. Every time the kitten showed up I laughed out loud.

    This movie looks like an animated DVD menu from about 15 years ago.
