Week 1


- September 30 -

1. Mandy (2018) ★★★★˝ ☼
A completely insane movie that really seemed like an acid trip. Nicolas Cage's performance was incredible, and Linus Roache matched it with an equally insane performance.

2. Trilogy of Terror (1975) ★★★˝ ☼
This movie was a lot of fun, though the middle story dragged a bit. It definitely has the hallmarks of a TV-movie, but it was darker than I expected.


- October 1 -

3. Haunters: The Art of the Scare (2017) ★★★ ☼
This was definitely an interesting movie, but I feel like they repeated the same point often. I would have also preferred that it either focused on one haunted house or on many, but it seemed to try to do both, which left it a bit unfocused.
