19. Monster from Green Hell 1957

Classic horror sci fi with radiation affected giant killer wasps

20. Blood of the Vampire 1958

This has only 59 checks, curiously interesting British horror, with some interesting cast members. Not many of you horror fans have seen it, it’s on the Ain’t Nobody’s Blues list.

Quick Halloween Update:

Total of 2194 points, 8 people above 100, 14 people 50+, 28 people 20+, and forty in double-digits. flavo5000 is dominating, but we could see some movement and jostling around in the top 5.

At this stage, two have completed the #HUNT (maxwelldeux and sol), two have completed #DEATH (albajos x2 and frbrown), five have finished the #TORTURE (ChrisReynolds, Kublai Khan, maxwelldeux, mightysparks, and sol), and two (albajos and sol) have blacked out #BINGO, with four others having completed at least one Bingo.

OP will be updated in moments; please let me know if I've made any mistakes and I'll get them corrected.

FYI, I'm traveling in the morning and will be offline for 24+ hours, but I'll catch up with this thread tomorrow evening PDT. Happy Haunting!

I attended the opening night of Monster Fest last night. The crowd annoyed me. They laughed at every little thing, ew'd at any kind of gore with one guy screaming 'nope!' when someone's eye got cut out, etc. I saw one girl wearing a 'game over' shirt. Later in the cinema, the presenter asked who was in costume and there were a couple (one guy dressed as Otis in Devil's Rejects, another with some Captain Spaulding inspired outfits) and he gave them free passes to the next film. He asks if anyone else is dressed up in costume, Game Over Girl puts her hand up and says 'I'm wearing this shirt' and the presenter goes 'you've got a shirt.. cool.. I've got a shirt too... Ok, everyone enjoy the film'. She was pissed and it was hilarious.

I got stuck with a very obese man next to me during the second film, he spilled out into my seat and hogged the arm rest so I got half a seat. He snorted and honked at every bit of gore or violence and was just generally extremely annoying. If he's next to me again, I'm moving.

142. "Preacher": 3x06- Les Enfants du Sang (2018) 7/10
143. "Preacher": 3x07- Hilter (2018) 7/10

144. 3 from Hell (2019) 5/10
After surviving the shoot-out at the end of The Devil's Rejects, the remaining members of the Firefly family escape prison to hide out in Mexico whilst one family seeks revenge. This was a pretty big disappointment considering how great the first two are and how many years had to go by to get this. It's very boring, poorly paced and lacks all the nastiness of the first two. The acting isn't that great either; Sheri Moon tries too hard and Baby's character is lame as hell. It's obvious Rob Zombie thinks his wife is hot shit because he doesn't want to take the camera off her, but she's not as alluring as he seems to think. Richard Brake's character isn't very interesting and feels out of place; which the character alludes to, perhaps to make us feel more comfortable accepting him, but it doesn't work. Most of the film is just them sitting around waiting.

145. The Furies (2019) 4/10
A teenager is kidnapped, only to wake up in the middle of a forest and finding herself part of a game where the women are hunted by men. This was pretty terrible. The characters are awful, supposedly teenagers but looking like 25 year olds and acting like 8 year olds. And oh god, the dialogue is just some of the worst crap ever; it's all tell and not show. The way they reveal the rules of the game is also lame as they just figure it out but they are not given enough information and are too stupid to really put these things together. The gore is pretty cool and the film's only positive but it shies away from it when it really matters.


Got a few more days of MonsterFest, but this it for me for this challenge. Thanks for hosting max!

15. The Town That Dreaded Sundown (1976) 5/10
Just ok. Very uneven. For example, the random smattering of wacky-silly southern cop slapstick thrown in that reminded more of Smokey and the Bandit or Hazzard even, than a serious biopic portraying a mass murderer. It does get kudos for some truly intense death/violence scenes, and the killer remains pretty chilling to the end, but left me feeling pretty bland by it's conclusion.
16. Exorcist II: The Heretic (1977) 5/10
The first is one of the centerpieces of horror on my figurative mantle, but this is just long-winded impenatrable nonsense. Any sense of dread you may have come into the film with and perhaps were reminded of early on in the film, is lost by the mid-point (if you even manage to stay awake, something I had a great deal of trouble with); very disappointing given the reasonably impressive cast and production values.

Quick Halloween Update:

Total of 2194 points, 8 people above 100, 14 people 50+, 28 people 20+, and forty in double-digits. flavo5000 is dominating, but we could see some movement and jostling around in the top 5.

At this stage, two have completed the #HUNT (maxwelldeux and sol), two have completed #DEATH (albajos x2 and frbrown), five have finished the #TORTURE (ChrisReynolds, Kublai Khan, maxwelldeux, mightysparks, and sol), and two (albajos and sol) have blacked out #BINGO, with four others having completed at least one Bingo.

OP will be updated in moments; please let me know if I've made any mistakes and I'll get them corrected.

FYI, I'm traveling in the morning and will be offline for 24+ hours, but I'll catch up with this thread tomorrow evening PDT. Happy Haunting!
Hey max. I had completed #HUNT also with the farm in The Substitute. I think you may have missed it. :whistling:

188-191. Creepshow S1E1-4 (2019)
Shudder's new Creepshow series starts appropriately enough with Stephen King's "Grey Matter" (King wrote the original Creepshow and even starred in :The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill") and is an quite the grody showcase for some Greg Nicotero practical effects. The second story also has some creepiness courtesy of a murderous severed head in a dollhouse with "The House of the Head". This one plays out in an interesting way but ends with a lame jump scare that felt like a missed opportunity. "Bad Wolf Down" is a standard werewolf story with a military angle (although we've also seen this kind of thing in Dog Soldiers). I did like the transformation effect of flipping the pages of the comic book. "The Finger" was an entertaining one that felt like one of the most "Creepshow-y" entries so far. DJ Qualls is able to pull of a kind of wtf mixed with gee-golly-gosh vibe that the story requires of a man and his pet monster. "All Hallows Eve" is a pretty good one although its central mystery can be seen coming from a mile away. "The Man in the Suitcase" was just fucking weird and maybe even too goofy for Creepshow, although it's ending seemed appropriate enough. "The Companion" features some pretty cool creature effects (and actually the show in general seems to be a good showcase for groovy practical effects). "Lydia Layne's Better Half" is a pretty decent one also with some interesting effects toward the end even though most of the episode feels more like one of the 90's thriller style Tales from the Crypt episodes than a Creepshow episode. Overall, I'm digging the new series quite a bit and look forward to watching more of it.

Image
192. Hold That Ghost (1941)
A couple of gas station attendants get mixed up in a haunted house with an odd doctor and a couple of damsels in distress. This really felt like a warm up for Abbott & Costello's streak of Universal monster mash ups they'd be better known for later with a mix of spooky shenanigans occurring with Costello reacting in increasingly hysterical and preposterous ways. If you've seen Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein or any of their other monster pairings, then this will definitely feel familiar to you. One thing I did find kind of interesting is the character of Camille played by Joan Davis who acts as a kind of vaguely romantic foil to Costello. Rather than be relegated to generic fainting damsel routine this kind of picture often invites (not that it's totally devoid of that kind of behavior), she often hams it up with him in equal measure, with a healthy dose of pratfalls, mugging, and shrieking. This isn't as good as later A&C horror comedies, but if you enjoyed them, you'll probably find some things to like here as well.

Image
193. Tucker and Dale vs Evil (2010)
This was a rewatch for the Movie Lunch at work, and it is just as hilarious on a revisit as it was the first time I saw it. The scene culminating in a kid jumping into a wood chipper interspersed with the kid impaling himself on a stake had me laughing so hard my face hurt. It is legitimately one of the funniest scenes I've ever seen in a horror comedy. I can't recommend this one enough.

Image
194. Dr. Terror's House of Trailers (2018)
Here we have a trailer compilation entirely comprised of films produced by Amicus a.k.a. the classic 60s/70s British horror studio that isn't Hammer responsible for many moderately entertaining anthology films such as the original Tales from the Crypt and Vault of Horror films. Offered up are the expected trailers for things like Torture Garden, Asylum, ...And Now the Screaming Starts, Scream and Scream Again and a bunch of others. One thing I always look for in these trailer comps are films that pique my interest. Interestingly I've seen a big chunk of the ones previewed here but there were a few I took note of like What Became of Jack and Jill? and I, Monster.

Image
195. Leprechaun Returns (2019)
Taking a cue from the recent Halloween sequel, Leprechaun Returns is a direct follow-up to the first Leprechaun movie, taking place in the same area the Leprechaun was ditched at the end of the previous film. It follows a group of sorority girls who unwittingly awaken the leprechaun (in a particularly gory sequence) when they take over an old house to use for their sorority digs. He's none too happy about being imprisoned for the last twenty five years and, you guessed it, he wants his gold which the girls happen to find. Hey, I'm caught up with the Leprechaun movies finally! So with this one, it definitely seems to be taking a back to the basics type approach with a somewhat more serious direction than the last few movies (I mean... at least as serious as a movie about a murderous leprechaun can get). It does seem to ratchet up the gore levels compared to previous entries so that's a positive if you're into the red stuff. Also I hate to say it, but Linden Porco just doesn't do it for me as the leprechaun. But I mean, I'd imagine it's tough to fill Warwick Davis' shoes. Honestly the main issue I had with him was that his voice seemed a little too high which made him even less threatening than Davis was in earlier movies (maybe they bumped up the violence to compensate?). Anyway, if you've been craving a simpler Leprechaun full of just limericks, magic and murder without all the weird space shit or rappers, this might sate your wild Irish rose.

Oh, I realised I forgot to #HUNT 2 for Halloween (2018) as well.. Not that I finished anything off except the torture one, but oh well.

That was really cool. I wish everyone could make one of these, I'd probably watch them all.

19. Insect! / Blue Monkey / Green Monkey (Fruet, 1987) #BINGO C4
I did an IMDb keyword search for creature features with the hospital tag, and I found this. A very generic monster movie which boasts a nice 80s horror style with the way it's directed (lots of bright blue light), but struggles through a confused jumble of clichés with a lack of logic. It is also burdened by lots of annoying comic relief characters, most of whom are completely extraneous to the plot.
3/10

Image

20. The Worst Witch (Young, 1986) #HUNT 2
This is a children's film packed with some of the shoddiest special effects I've ever seen. It does have so-bad-it's-good appeal, notably in the hilarious songs, but it is also packed with weird directorial decisions, and the film has three excellent performers in Balk, Rigg and Curry who throw themselves into the material with gusto. It's interesting to compare similarities to Harry Potter: some of that is just from the common tropes of British boarding school stories being transferred to a school of magic, but there's no way J. K. Rowling didn't read the Worst Witch books and take inspiration from them -- they were very popular in the UK in the 70s and 80s.
5/10

Tim Curry providing proof that this movie occurs on Halloween:


21. The Devil Bat (Yarbrough, 1940)
Lugosi provides huge value to this poverty row creature feature. Every time he's on screen, the film picks up, and he's fantastic at portraying the gleeful sadism of his character. On the other hand, the hero and his sidekick are corrupt newspaper reporters, all too willing to create hoaxes to help their careers. The script was OK, at least the characters in this were reasonably intelligent.
4/10

Image

22. The Dark Eyes of London (Summers, 1939)
Another low-budget effort starring Lugosi, but this one additionally benefits from its dark atmosphere and a script shot through with mordant humour (though there's too many wisecracks from the American cop who has now reason to be there other than to provide overseas appeal). This is by no means great, but the best thing I can say about it is that there are sequences that do have a chilling feeling.
5/10

Hereditary (2018)

Midsommar and Fehér isten were the two best (9/10) and very close between them. For horror specifically I'd probably go with Midsommar, but Fehér isten actually had more of an emotional effect on me:

Key: (IMDb rating / icheck rating / my rating) 7.3 is above average on IMDb, 4% is above average for icheck, and 7 (out of 10) is above average for me.



Oct. 31. Frankenstein: The True Story 7.5 / 4.8% / 5

A corny old 3 hour television movie. The worst part is I did some research, and despite the title none of this really happened! (And it’s not like this was closer to the book than the James Whale version or whatever).

Ohhhhh K. This was my last movie, putting me at a grand total of 24 for this year's challenge. Hopefully at least square in the middle. I can’t hang with you 6-movie-a-day bitches, and I’m just going to pretend it’s because I have a rich full life, and not because I have the attention span of methed out chipmunk...

Cheers to our hosts, and a Happy Season o’ the VVitch to y’all.

My last post of the challenge! Thanks Max for the awesome hosting job! Horror is always my post anticipated challenge of the year. I just love the stuff.

Image
196. Jigsaw (2017)
10 years after the death of John Kramer, the Jigsaw murders have started up again, prompting investigators to question who's behind it. Is it really the Jigsaw killer back from the dead? So in some ways this is better for hardcore Saw fans than the last few Saw movies with the focus being primarily on the "game". There is definitely nowhere near as much of a focus on the investigation around it or expository flashbacks as compared to 5 through 7 (although it's final big exposition dump explaining what's been going on just did not work for me at all, leaving me feeling cheated at the whole thing). The directing (from the Spierig brothers who have actually made good movies like Predestination and Undead before) also isn't as annoying as the last few either, avoiding much of the Marilyn Manson music video editing style from some of the previous movies that irritated me so much. At the end of the day, it's still a Saw movie. you either like watching crappy people die in overly complicated and somewhat preposterous traps or you don't.

Image
197. Wind Chill (2007)
A woman and guy in a rideshare situation are run off the road in a snowstorm and get stuck with little hope of rescue any time soon. Before long, mysterious figures are seen marching by the car into the woods. What's going on? Wind Chill ended up being a much more interesting, stranger movie than I had thought it would be when it first started. The setup with the rideshare partner acting off and then the car getting stuck made it seem like it might play out like Adam Green's Frozen but with a killer in the car too. Fortunately it veered pretty hard away from that into something more original and supernatural in nature. To go into any more detail would spoil it but suffice it to say, I thought it was actually pretty solid. I did have a few issues with the ending but that wasn't enough to spoil the overall pervasive sense of dread and desolation that it conjures up.

Image
198. Pooh's Heffalump Halloween Movie (2005)
Well, I decided to show the kids a Halloween movie for Halloween evening, and this is one we've had sitting around unwatched for a while. Much to my chagrin, it did not hold their attention at all and justifiably so as it really was a pretty dull Pooh sequel that fell into the same tropes a lot of the newer Winnie the Pooh movies have gotten into of just having the characters manufacture a problem that doesn't really exist due to a series of misunderstandings. It also lacks much of the wistful charm imbued by the ties to the source book that the best of the Pooh films exhibit. It's all pretty disposable.

Image
199. Herutâ sukerutâ a.k.a. Helter Skelter (2012)
Lilico is a J-pop star who undergoes extensive cosmetic surgery after observing some minor imperfections in her appearance. This sends her on a downward spiral of psychological distress and odd hallucinations culminating in a rather grim sequence of events illustrating the fickle and exploitive world of stardom. This was a solid way to end the challenge I think. It's a pretty effective condemnation of the star culture and features some incredibly vivid cinematography that really pops against the glitz and glamour backdrop. While I prefer Perfect Blue which this movie shares some similarities with, I think it's still worth a watch if you are into psychological horror in the vein of films like Black Swan and Repulsion.

Man... SO close to 200 watches... I was tempted to stay up late to round it out but I was already so tired and had to go into work this morning. Anyway, fun stuff!

6. The Haunting (1963)
This suuuuuuucked. And I can't even fully remember why. I saw it five days ago, and it's already partly vanished from my memory. I really remember only a few things: (1) It was not scary (2) It was deeply uninteresting--I was thoroughly bored by the halfway mark (3) Every character was annoying (4) It provided a strong contrast with The Innocents, which is a very similar movie and which I saw a day before The Haunting, except The Innocents is great.

7. The Love Witch (2016)
I'm not quite sure what this was, but I found it an enjoyable lark. Probably best not to take it too seriously.

119. Frankenstein (1931 / James Whale) FTV 10/10

And with that classic viewing I ended my Challenge. There were a number of notable personal achievements for me this year. My 5 year old son watched his first ever movie with me yesterday on Halloween: It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! 119 points is the most I have achieved in this particular challenge, and 100 FTVs is the second most first time viewings I have had in a single month since joining ICM. I also concentrated on a single list for the first time and found it really rewarding . I've now got 850 checks on TSZDT and it notably changed the tenor of my viewings for the month, and probably encouraged more first time views as well. All in all a very good month.

Thanks to Max for hosting and all my fellow horror hounds for keeping the faith. :cheers:

PS: Maxwell, our Horror Host, ended his month with rank #666 on ICM. How freakin' cool is that? :cheers: :cheers:

16. Bates Motel (Richard Rothstein, 1987)
17. Psycho IV: The Beginning (Mick Garris, 1990)

Never had much interest in this series, apart from the first film which of course I've seen several times over the decades (this was probably the 4th); sequels decades after the fact are, from my experience, virtually always worthless. But last year not long before Halloween I came across the cheapo disc with all the sequels for $1 or so at Goodwill, and then RedLetterMedia dissected them before last Halloween, and I'm pretty much a completist with that channel, so I knew I'd have to get to them eventually. Voila! Psycho certainly holds up, but there are still issues with it for me that keep it out of Hitch's top tier and off my all-time favorites list; the long exposition at the end, obviously, something plenty of others object to as well though I suspect most aren't as allergic as I am to these sorts of (*cough*Nolan*cough) things. And it's just a little on the longish side I think, just a little too drawn out. I really noticed this time though how un-horror it is in it's first 45 minutes - before the shower scene it's pure noir, isn't it? And Leigh and Perkins are quite terrific, and Herrmann's score is among his best.

Psycho II features a score by the only other American composer who deserves to stay in a room in Herrmann's motel IMO, Jerry Goldsmith, but it's not one of JG's best alas. Better to look at Dean Cundey's very lovely cinematography, and again at the performance by Perkins, and by a returning Vera Miles, and Meg Tilly as the young woman who befriends Norman after he gets out of the asylum, 20-odd years later, and comes back to run his motel again. Dennis Frantz is also on hand to play the Dennis Frantz character, but Robert Loggia surprisingly enough is not employed in portraying the Robert Loggia character, who is absent from the film, instead being just an ordinary doctor type. This is all pretty well put together but not terribly distinctive or memorable; still a nice surprise for the cynic in me, as it's not at all a dead ringer for the first film.

III is also a step in a slightly different direction, with star Perkins taking over the director's role and going back more deliberately in homage to the master - but not to the original film in the series, rather evoking Vertigo, particularly in the opening bell-tower sequence in which the young nun (Diana Scarwid) gets scared into going eventually to meet Norman and a very different fate from that which the monastery probably had in store for her; also there's the resemblance that she bears in name (MC - Maureen Coyle and blondeness to Janet Leigh's original victim, and there's one sequence in the middle of the film that evokes the doomed James Stewart-Kim Novak dance of death as well. Like the previous two films this has some pedigree in music (Carter Burwell of Coen brothers fame) and cinematography (Bruce Surtees, Clint Eastwood's main DP from 71-85), and the cast also includes a fun/scary performance from Jeff Fahey, but it gets rather stupid as it goes along and finishes with a whimper. Meh.

Not much to say about Bates Motel. an abortive TV series pilot starring Bud Cort as the heir to the late Norman Bates' estate, who like Norman has spent many years in an institution before his mentor dies and leaves him the infamous motel (the film ignores the two sequels entirely). This is a very offputting mixture of minimal horror and broad, stupid comedy, and features Lori Petty - an interesting actress but one who seems to have a very particular personality that doesn't always gel in every project, and it certainly doesn't here - as the love interest. The second half of the pilot veers mostly away from Cort/Petty as a middle-aged woman comes to the newly refurbished Bates to end her life, but finds spirits of the past have different ideas for her. This was I suppose supposed to work something like the Friday the 13th TV series with different people showing up every week and getting some kind of fantastic experience to change their lives; maybe it's more like Fantasy Island actually. In any case, it was mostly irritating and stupid.

Psycho IV is a bit better, and is really redeemed IMO by the ending, though folks with a more Old Testament sense of justice might not appreciate it so much. Here we have Norman married and apparently happy, not living anymore in the old place, but calling in to a radio show about matricide and claiming that he might just kill again - and I don't think anyone who has seen the previous films will be surprised at the reasons or target. This goes into Norman's past, showing him as a very young man (Henry Thomas) in something like an incestuous relationship with his mad mother (Olivia Hussey) - presented as a relatively young, attractive woman here, not really something I got from earlier films. Honestly this takes all the mystery out of the whole thing, and the mystery was always part of the "horror" for me, and so I can't really say this works at all, despite decent performances and, as I said, an ending that's kind of nice and brings things full circle. Oh well. Still a fun experience watching them all at once, though I don't know that I'll ever bother to revisit any of the sequels except possibly the first.

18. Danza macabra / Castle of Blood (Sergio Corbucci/Antonio Margheriti, 1964)

One of the most gorgeous and atmospheric b/w horror films from this period, with fog and smoke that just seem to jump off the screen and into the room, this is one of those "I dare you to spend the night in this house, everybody else has died from it" films, with the main novelty here being that it's set in early Victorian times, and one of the minor characters is Edgar Allan Poe himself (also supposedly the originator of the screenplay though it's really just a pastiche of a few Poe ideas). The story is rather muddled, but Barbara Steele among others helps keep up the interest, and I think it'd be a neat film to watch alongside Corman's much more famous Poe adaptations from the same period.

19. Haute tension (Alexandre Aja, 2003)

Ugly, unpleasant, derivative nonsense about a couple of young women (Cécile de France, Maiwenn) who go to the latter's country house to put in some quiet studying time before a major test, only to be pursued by a rampaging, brutal killer who terrorizes and murders Maiwenn's family one by one before a long chase sequence by car and on foot in various locations that makes up the bulk of the film. de France is pretty compelling here and any worth in the film is due to her IMO; the much-commented on ending twist I found really poor in execution, though the idea - not the most original thing in the world itself - might have been effective in a better screenplay. This was also really visually ugly; it looked to me like early digital but apparently it was shot on film, and also apparently the DVDs (how I watched it) were poorly transferred and the BD is much more life- and film-like. Well, I'm not going to bother to find out.

20. Abbott and Costello Meet Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (Charles Lamont, 1953)

About equal in quality to the Invisible Man title in the series that I watched earlier - not as funny or as well-paced as that one, but this one features Karloff in the title role and John Dierkes as his hulking servant, so that's fun. Meh, I think I may be done with A&C, I've seen four of their better-known films now and while I don't hate them, there's just not enough there for me to continue.

21. Zombieland: Double Tap (Ruben Fleischer, 2019) (cinema)

More of the same from the first film a decade ago. I only saw this because of my undying love for Emma Stone, and she and Woody Harrelson are the main reasons to see this, but that's not enough unless you really are a fan. Or a Jesse Eisenberg groupie I suppose, he must have a fanbase too right? Anyway our heroes and heroines go around making jokes and slaying zombies and there are some kicks from that and it's not overlong but...zzzz.

22. The Lighthouse (Robert Eggers, 2019) (cinema)

First off I saw this in digital, and the stupid fucking AMC theater couldn't be bothered to move the curtains over to properly frame the film (not that I expected them to). And the sound just didn't seem quite right to me - reading a few comments on this I'd have to say that if you have some chance somehow of seeing this properly in 35mm in a theater with good sound, do it. I may check around to see if I have other options in this regard myself for a second viewing, and I'd love to give this one. It's not spoiling much to say that Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe go mad and go at each other for almost two hours in this highly atmospheric and symbolic piece about a lonely lighthouse on the East coast (filmed in Nova Scotia but this could be Maine or MA or PEI, wherever), the ornery aged lighthouse keeper and his new assistant, and the travails that befall them during raging storms and storms of drunkenness. It's a bit long, or struck me as such on a first viewing, but there is so much symbolism and weirdness packed in here that I might well see it differently on a second viewing, and perhaps knowing my Greek mythology better might help a bit as well. I think I probably liked The VVitch more on a first viewing but at the same time this definitely feels like a step forward, and in it's ambition and how it all plays out it reminds me in some ways of both Annihilation and Mother! - which are probably my two favorite genre films of the last couple of years, so that's pretty high praise from me.

23. The Love Witch (Anna Biller, 2016)

And from rabid intensity, and narrow-framed b/w photography of storms and cramped interiors, we go to our final film of the challenge and break out into bright sunshine and groovy psychedelic 70s colors and sly comedy and sexiness, along with perhaps just a touch of horror. Writer/director/producer/composer/editor/production & art & costume designer Biller and DP M. David Mullen, with the sensational Samantha Robinson in the lead create a goofy tribute to early 70s horror-sexploitation films that has more than a smattering of various shades of feminism coloring the whole thing almost as much as the day-glo of Mullen's palette. Robinson is a witch who has moved to a small town somewhere in California to live in an incredible Victorian mansion and pursue men while creating sexyhorror paintings that evoke the 19th century, dining in a Victorian tea room in authentic dress, and showing just enough skin to remain constantly titillating - part of the whole point I think. Like the previous film there is a lot to unpack and think about here, though this is a much more immediately accessible and fun film, and while it hits the 2 hour mark it doesn't feel particularly padded, maybe because the visuals, costumes, and everything else are so extravagant throughout. Certainly one of the most interesting and successful pieces of current-day eye-candy I've seen in a while.

And that's it! Thanks maxwell.
