    Just got back from what used to be the buck theater (but is now the three and a half bucks theater)


    Wow.

    You fans of The Witch, and Hereditary, this is not those movies, but if you liked those, there's a good chance you'll like this, too

    never having seen either the Witch or Hereditary I wandered off and read the information available.
    YOW! When Stephen King said that he really liked the film The Witch and it really scared him, I said to myself, Nope, not me. I is fun to read about great films but there are some rooms that my timid self dares not venture into.
    Thanks for the tip.

    Very haunting movie, and excellent performances by Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe

    I really want to see the Lighthouse. I haven't seen Hereditary, but saw the director's (Ari Aster) follow up movie Midsommar, actually a few times, and loved it.

    I had thought about this earlier. I'm not sure that the movie will hold up as well on the small screen.

    First I've heard of that, will have to check it out

    By the way my film critic friend loved The Lighthouse and said there’s heavy Bergman influences in there which for him is a great thing

    Agreed. Your critic friend isn't Adum from YMS, is he? Adum gave Lighthouse 10/10, which he, like, NEVER does
