    1. Depends on who you ask. I think it's a lesser Fulci film, but that doesn't man I don't like it. Fans are generally divided on this one.

    1. Dang! I really wanted to see that. I've already listened to the score a lot on spotify, it's amazing.

      Delete
    2. Another reason why this movie totally doesn't work. The poster and the score are the only good things about it and thematically have nothing to do with the film. A MESS. Literally. There's a scene where they have to drink a tampon. That tells you everything you need to know.

    1. In their defense, it was actually 2014. (wistfully)...It was a different time then...

      Delete
    2. My initial review alluded to this: (Amityville: The Awakening (1927) "took 90 years to appreciate The Pixies") but I'm awful at being clever so...

      Delete
    3. Me too. I wrote a comment saying that Frank Black had been a contestant on Dancing With the Stars that year and it had given the band a real shot in the arm with the millenial youth, but I scrapped it due to it sucking. :)

    4. The Cult poster is inexplicable, though.

    5. Reeeks of director taste. Movie also reeeeks of distaste.
