Word from SXSW sounds pretty positive. A nice throwback to older giallo.

There are some sneak screenings tonight a select cinemas... mostly Drafthouses I think.

Not really my type of movie, but I'll see it for Benedetta Porcaroli.

Did you see the film Amanda? I've really been digging her since seeing that.

I haven't, I only know her from Baby (really good series) on Netflix, but will certainly look into it. Appreciate the recommendation.

I am so sick of stock trailers like this nowadays. Loud sounds! Quick jump cuts with a no-scare jump scare! Even louder sounds! Actions matching the music! Even louder louder sounds!

Christian twitter are losing their minds over this and Neon is soaking it all up.

Reminds me of the Silent Night Deadly Night protests of '84 ...

Re: Immaculate (2024, D: Mohan) S: Sydney Sweeney

And from there we can go back to 1979 and LIFE OF BRIAN, and then to 1976 and the SNUFF protests, the latter which were largely staged to drum up ‘controversy’ for the film, and ended up attracting real protesters, which then generated even more publicity and box-office. You could put the film’s ending on YouTube today and no one would bat an eye.

I’ve always wondered if some of those SILENT NIGHT DEADLY NIGHT protests weren’t staged as well.

I’ll see this on video later, but kudos to the distributor for having fun with the outrage (assuming it’s really them doing that).

I would’ve been ok with the movie being Satanic, but the feminism is a real deal-breaker.

This really went for it at the end. Jeepers.
I thought this was good although I had a few nit picks.

I mean that's funny and all, but today you can see it for $5 in many places.

That may be the case in Detroit, but I checked out the Houston prices and AMC is $15.14, Cinemark $11.10, and Regal $13.80. The times I looked up were after 6:00 pm.

Gonna wait for digital on this one. Looks interesting and Sweeney is growing on me, although I find her annoying in some stuff.

All the theaters here, including AMC, have Tuesday discounts, but many of them require loyalty programs to show the discount. And the prices are all day long, also free popcorn. AMC doesn't do the free popcorn.

I don't have Regals or Cinemarks here, but here are their Tuesday Discount programs. For AMC, you have to login with a Stubs membership to see the discount.

Regal:https://www.regmovies.com/promotions/regal-value-days
Cinemark: https://www.cinemark.com/discounts/discount-tuesdays/

Now they may not be cheaper than 6.66, but I'm thinking that they should be cheaper than the prices that you quoted if you use their rewards programs. Maybe I'm wrong tho.

NEON's marketing team strikes again

Gorgeous cinematography but I didn't care much about anything else. I would definitely put that on Andrew Lobel's drab script.

The final 10-15 minutes are a neat little nod to classic Italian Horror.

And there was also a vintage, giallo-sounding track that plays during a (Passage-of-time) montage early in the film. I chose to stick around through the credits to see who the composer was, but holy shit, the end-credits were about as long as a LOTR film! Once the workers turned all the lights on to clean up the theater, I decided to skip it. Which reminds me...I still haven't found out who composed that and where it's from! Welp, off to imdb I go!
