Residents of a coastal town learn, with deathly consequences, the secret shared by the two mysterious women who have sought shelter at a local resort.
My thoughts: An elegant, at times lethargic vampire film that doesn’t really add much to the genre but does look undeniably beautiful not doing it.
The Lighthouse (2019)
Two lighthouse keepers try to maintain their sanity while living on a remote and mysterious New England island in the 1890s.
My thoughts: A bleak and beautiful film initially buoyed by powerhouse performances but ultimately sunk by pretentious excess.
Cherrypicker (aka Ankle Biters) (2021)
Four adorable little girls plot to murder a hockey player after they mistake an act of lovemaking as an attack on their mom.
My thoughts: Offensively discordant. The premise offers the promise of a horror comedy, but its execution is so lumbering it delivers on neither.
