    Won't You Be My Neighbor?

    ★★★★★

    Not particularly imaginative, but definitely got some good laughs and an incredibly likable cast make this a serviceable summer afternoon comedy.

    My first John Carpenter film, as a part of my attempt to better educate myself on the origins of the horror genre as I know it today... It Follows is what inspired me to start wanting to watch more older horror.

    The two things I loved most about this movie were the music and the lack of relying on jump scares. Tension is built masterfully throughout the entire movie to an incredibly satisfying end.

    I don't have any nostalgia towards this movie and it's certainly very dated, but that didn't stop me from thoroughly enjoying the film. Will definitely be rewatching come Halloween time.
