Review: "Attack Of The Killer Tomatoes" 25Th Anniversary Edition From Mvd

  • CinemaRetro
By Todd Garbarini

Movie-going audience members under the age of forty will not recall motion picture theatrical exhibition in the 1970s. It was a most interesting time when drive-ins and even first-run movie theaters would pair up an older feature film, generally one that was one to two years-old, with the main feature on a double-bill. A handful of theaters in my area used to engage in midnight showings of older films, too. One theater exclusively ran The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) for years while another alternated between Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), Ralph Bakshi’s Wizards (1971), Led Zeppelin’s The Song Remains the Same (1976), David Lynch's art-house favorite Eraserhead (1977) and Alan Parker's Pink Floyd The Wall (1982). Other showcases included uncensored bloopers featuring Carol Burnett, the Three Stooges, and Abbott and Costello.

Review: Hereditary (2018)

Any horror hyped as “the next [insert horror classic here]” is always bound to have a tough time convincing the masses. In fact, with other genres, many seem to accept hyperbole far more easily but horror (much like comedy) is far more scrutinised and through this scrutiny, some films falter, some flourish and some divide. In the case of Hereditary, it is once more a case of the latter. Like The VVitch, The Babadook, It Follows, It Comes At Night and Mother before it, Hereditary is a film that has enjoyed some eye catching reviews but which has split its mainstream audiences like the underbelly of a haddock but also, like all those other titles, it is a film that forcibly requests your attention and observation.

To this point I will say now that this review is not complete because Hereditary, like Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, is a film that can scarcely be defined by one viewing.
