I watched Something in the Dirt on NYE and thought it was great!  Don't think Benson/Moorehead fans will be disappointed.

It’s so great, a good step back up from Synchronic, which I enjoyed but no where near to the level of their other stuff. I never thought I’d see a cinematic palimpsest, but here we are.

Going to catch Skinamarink at my local arthouse in a couple hours. I’m pretty sure / hoping it’ll play better in a completely dark room with booming sound, but I suppose I’ll see!


We were thinking about seeing it this weekend but ultimately decided against it.  There was only one showtime on both Friday and today (7:05pm) and after even knowing the littlest bit about it, we figured it wouldn’t be a great idea to see it in theaters.  Just had a bad feeling it would be one of those cases where a bunch of people go to see it who have no idea what they’re getting into, end up hating it, which then makes the experience miserable for everyone else.  So we’re just gonna hang tight for the Shudder release hopefully sooner rather than later.

 

We did randomly watch The Vigil on Hulu today though.  It was alright.

I can see that logic.
 

Ours was a 930 showing, which my local had screenings for a few nights this past week, but only 930 showings.

 

It was pretty well sold, not sold out but fairly full, and I don’t think there was any issue whatsoever with our crowd. I was also a little worried about that, having seen it already, and knowing that it’s certainly a bit more blurry and art house than people might expect, but crowd was really receptive and had some really good interaction / reactions on some of the creepier/scarier parts, and it was overall a fun experience. I’m not sure if I liked it any *more* seeing it in the theater or not, but it was fun to get out anyway.
 

My wife and I watch The Vigil back in 2020? 2021? Whenever it came out, and we enjoyed it quite a bit.

I saw Skinamarink last night as well and really enjoyed it. I found that the more you immersed yourself and didn’t try to force a narrative, the more you got out of it. My crowd was also receptive to the scarier bits and it was nice to be able to have a Q and A with the director afterwards! Definitely helps you understand his artistic process. Basically the entire movie I just felt very, very, uncomfortable.
