I love horror movies. I guess that goes without saying. But I really enjoy them, and one of the things I love about them is that they’re the zine of movie genres. People can just do whatever. The creative and entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well. This is a neat movie, it’s set up as a documentary. Adam Green is a real person, who makes real horror movies - I’ve seen Frozen, it’s good! He’s interviewing real, actual, people at a convention. The folks working on the documentary are his actual employees. It’s like a surreal movie in which Green is searching for real-life monsters, and finds them. The movie has flaws - production’s not wonderful, and I don’t understand why Green is so..smirky? Arrogant? For someone who wants to believe, he’s really putting on the Aziz-Ansari-what-the-fuuuuuuck act. BUT. He’s funny enough, and at the end of the day, it’s a fun, weird movie. And it gets pretty darn scary for a bit, some good thrills and great makeup. Not a huge fan of the ending. I don’t know, let me know what you think!
