A nice chunk of the SUMMER SCHOOL cast the year prior (including Dean Cameron!!) and a surprise Barbara Crampton! A cute, sunny kinda “there” 80’s movie perfect for a lazy summer afternoon.
Insanely original, incredible performances and just gorgeous. While purely a horror film, it’s one that could only be made by someone who’s studied (or understands on an instinctual level) sociocultural theory, read a lot of sci-fi literature and has an endless well of empathy and humor. A staggering sophomore effort when it comes to style, storytelling and taking chances. At SXSW
I’ve been catching up on Burt Reynolds’ movies this year, and I’ve fallen completely in love (HEAT was what really pushed me over) and I’m proud that he’s a Michigan kid like I am.
Watching this a few hours after learning of Mr. Reynolds death made it even more poignant. This is a touching, funny and truthful film, and it’s a wonderful swan song for one of the most American of the great American actors.
