    "Is this it? We can build highways, but we can't overcome ignorance and superstition."

    One of the best film titles ever, and this poster is just fabulous. I need a print for my wall.

    I loved that the film is such a good blend of murder mystery and a bit of the…

    The Seventh Victim

    ★★★★½

    Watched at Anthology Film Archives, which currently has a film program called "The Devil Probably". You can see all the films in the program here: letterboxd.com/rachelbea/list/the-devil-probably-a-century-of-satanic-panic/

    "I runne to death and death meets me as fast/And all my pleasures are like yesterday." The film begins with this epigraph.

    I adored the movie. Kim Hunter's presence on screen was felt. As Mary, she was gentle but firm. Sweet but determined. Mary leaves her boarding school to go to New York to…

    I feel so lucky because a local cinema (Metrograph) had a Kurt Russell retrospective which included a screening of The Thing. It's one of my favorite films, and to witness it on the big screen was genuinely one of the best movie theater experiences of my life. I wasn't born yet when the film was originally released, so I had only experienced it on a tv, and never thought I'd see it in the cinema. It's as horrifying as ever. As soon as I heard the heart beat-esque opening notes my own heart started racing and didn't let up until the end credits. Phenomenal film.

    6 MIX & MATCH DIRECTORS (2/6)

    Pretty much a perfect monster movie.

    The performances are incredible. I could watch Geena Davis all day, and Jeff Goldblum showed amazing range in his role. He was charming, funny, frustrating, and elicited both anger and sympathy from me as I watched him transform. What happens is so tragic, I honestly got emotional at the end. But what's even better than the performances is the special effects and makeup... wow! The last 20 or so minutes were jaw-droppingly disgusting, but I couldn't look away.

    6 decades (2010s) (3/6)

    Antrum: The Deadliest Film Ever Made presents the long-lost film from the late '70s, Antrum*, and bookends it with a short documentary discussing the film, its origins, and its legacy. Antrum is allegedly cursed, with only two known screenings since its initial release. Both screenings resulted in death and injury, so it's said that anyone who watches the film in its entirety will die.

    Without giving too much away of the story, Antrum begins…
