Let the Right One In

Posted in Movie | No Comments »

great concept, stellar actors, and just a neat, different take on vampires. not at all “scary”, unless you count an EXTREMELY unfortunate bit of CGI that is just criminal.
that said, it IS a Scandinavian movie; it’s gonna be heavy, uneven, everyone will be dressed like they’re homeless, and it’ll feel 20% longer than it actually is.

Drag Me To Hell

FUCKING AWESOME! very, very funny, and very, very gross. it definitely helps to like Sam Raimi (and i do so very much), and this is exceptionally well done. reminds me a bit of Shaun of the Dead, in that it is simultaneously poking fun at the horror genre, and being a really excellent example of it. acting several rungs above what it has to be – good on ya, Alison Lohman!
