    ★★★½

    So… I like this movie and think it’s very well made (stunning photography and excellent shot composition/angles). My reservations about *loving* this movie are more around the telegraphing of the conflict w/the children and Grace (Riley Keough, who is again off the charts great) and the similarity with their previous film GOODNIGHT MOMMY. That said, I do want to see this again (and GM as well since I haven’t seen since FF). Alicia Silverstone also deserves a nod here; she's terrific.

    ★½

    This was the GWAR vs RnR Nightmare event at Cinepocalypse where BälSäc and Sleazy P did a Rifftrax style live commentary during the film. Probably the best way to watch this and made the movie somewhat enjoyable. TBH I had more fun watching them than the movie.

    The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires

    ★★★

    I get the charm and novelty of this Hammer/Shaw mash-up but I wouldn’t classify this as a better representation from either studio. However, together they’ve found a unique balance. In essence 1+1=3 in this case. The fighting scenes aren’t great and the Hammer elements only serve to drive the plot. Neither executed very well but combined it becomes an entertaining watch. Fun to see Peter Cushing so active in fighting the vampires. Plenty of replay value.

    ★★★★★

    My new favorite film of Fantastic Fest. Essential viewing not just for Jodo fans but anyone who loves art, music and/or film. If you create, you must see this this.
