    ★★½

    Good for her. 


    Wasn’t really a fan of the music choices (I would’ve liked something more quiet and suspenseful) but the visuals are decent. I vaguely remember seeing this short film with a different song overlaid—a fan-made music video—and honestly I think I enjoyed that more, but anyways. I’m up at 2am watching horror shorts on my phone, so who am I to be picky. Might pair well with The Shape of Water or The Lure.

    ★★★

    Well why wouldn’t I kill the bastard?

    Disturbing and surreal as fuck. 🧜🏼‍♀️ 

    I picked this film based on the poster of a witch holding a beheaded man, and was somehow still shocked. A woman, Molly, deals with her traumatic past (incest/rape) by bedding and then killing famous men. 

    And also getting a giant mermaid tattoo on her belly. 

    I want to say Good For Her but I honestly don’t know how to feel about all of this. Disturbing, arthouse-y, and very suspenseful.

    Are we just going to ignore that this colorblind casting/weird fusion timeline led to what looks very much like a lynching? Are they really just going to gloss over that?!! But whatever, I guess I’m not supposed to read into social issues because this movie is just a “pastiche.” 

    Ok so if I’m not allowed to comment on the irresponsible and clear…

    Fear Street 2: We Finally Get An Adult But She’s Evil

    I’m only halfway through this Wattpad fic of a Hallmark horror film (my friend had to take a work call) and so far it hasn’t even had the decency to look properly 70s. WHERE IS ALL THE BACKCOMBED HUGE ASS HAIR. THE FUN MAKEUP. THE FRINGE AND QUESTIONABLE PSYCHEDELIC PATTERNS. (To be fair there are like two people who look a little bit 70s and I have a feeling…
