To remove the human element from the story of Jesus seems to completely undo the potency of the whole thing. Which is why the protests against it seemed so fundamentally misguided. It's not like...

Boatman's Call and Lyre of Orpheus were the first two albums that spoke to me.


As I've begun to dig, it has turned out all of it is good. I'm very fond of Murder Ballads as well, but that does...

I kind of pushed his solo music aside for a long time. I was a big fan of his original band, The Birthday Party, which is about as feral and frightening as rock music can get, and I just didn't think...

Re: A scary thing happened on the way to the Movie Forums - Horrorcram

I need to rewatch Tourist Trap one of these days. My memory is that there is an early scene that is so staggeringly weird and well done that the rest of the film just couldn't live up the...

To me I use the appearance of Fritz as a kind of barometer of how far the film is willing to go in order to turn a body into something that is repellent. His ugliness is otherworldly. Almost shocking...

I never got any sense that he was attracted to these women, more that he preyed on vulnerability.



As for whether or not the film was going 'whoah gross', that is kind of impossible to parse,...

Also, I don't really like Groundhog Day. But its not an offensive 'don't really like'. More just a 'meh, that was fine, now what's for supper', kinda not like.
