If you've seen the Fulci film The Beyond, keep it in the back of your mind should you see The Void.

There have been mixed-reviews on The Void but it's still on my must-see list.

I could fill pages with how much working on this film has meant to me — long story short, I consider it a high point in my career and am lucky to have been a part of it. I’m posting it here on the PRF because aside from the (admittedly biased) opinion that the movie kicks ass:

- A few music cues that I suggested actually made it into the finished film, from bands I wouldn’t have known about were it not for this forum (Bitch Magnet, Comsat Angels)

- It was never intended, but it could be read as a thematic adaptation of the Shellac tune “Riding Bikes”

Theater/VOD info: superdarktimes.com


Whoa, watched this a few weeks ago and I really enjoyed this movie. Awesome it has a link to the PRF. Nicely done!


Watched this the other night, also really enjoyed it! It nailed suburban teenage life in the 90's better than any movie I've seen -- the relentless boredom, scrambled porn, ghostridin' the bike, smoking your older brother's weed. There's a kind of inexplicable darkness to suburbs that it also captures really well, and dives into.

I also watched Lady Bird and The Florida Project recently. Both were great.

After reading this, and watching the trailer, I’m keen to check this out.

Well, your mileage will almost certainly vary, but I thought Annihilation was top notch.

TCM is showing five mental health classics tonight, fire up your dvr's if ya got 'em...I've seen all of them besides The Caretakers, the rest come highly recommended by me. It won't be the same as seeing them in the 70's at the Oriental Landmark Theatre in Milwaukee, but I'm making popcorn anyway.

Shock Corridor or Targets should have been the final feature, oh well, still a good lineup.

I saw it on Saturday night with a buddy. I haven't had that much discourse over a film in a long time. I decided I loved it. It takes all my favorite parts of Roadside Picnic, STALKER, and Joseph Campbell (I think), and just wraps em up with a creepy and unsettling score.

Annihilation is terrific...nods to The Thing, Stalker, Alien, and Invasion of the Bodysnatchers, but overall an original approach to sci-fi suspense...

Any Tarkovsky movie is probably a good reference. But the big difference (and I say this as a huge Tarkovsky fan), is that the plot moves right along in this. In fact, the genius of this film might be it's ability to meld super thinky cerebral sci-fi with a nice actiony film.

My favorite description of the aesthetic was from Bob Chipman who called it "HR Giger by way of a Lisa Frank Trapper Keeper cover."

Thoroughbreds is pretty great. Great, slow pacing, minimal use of music with none during the scenes you'd most expect it.

Todd Haynes's Carol is streaming on Netflix, it's beautiful, as are all Haynes films.

The Party is also pretty good, may be in theatre near you now.

I revisited Mike Leigh's All or Nothing recently and it reduced me to a whimpering pile of blah. Damn good. I like it before but it really hit hard this last time.

(Kinda lame trailer. But they usually are.)

i'm not just saying this cause my celebrity crush is in it... but this movie was awesome, hilarious and real. its almost seems easy to make an indie crying film nowadays, but to make something folks actually find funny when everyone is so self aware and mostly lame, this movie fucking
