In the Vague Visages Writers’ Room on Facebook, freelancers were asked to comment about their favorite Halloween flicks.
“It is the rare film where form and content align at a time when its creator is close to formal mastery and itching for singular experimentation.”
“Argento builds upon his work in ‘Suspiria’ to create an unnerving, discomfiting experience.”
“This is a trio dwelling on the sharp, atonal edge of post-punk”
“Bergman’s cinema had entered a phase of pronounced maturity.”
“Horror fans may need to adjust their expectations if they’re looking for more frights than laughs.”
“The multi-hyphenate filmmaker’s latest seems to anticipate dissection: its formal austerity belies a haphazard, literary-minded indulgence.”
“‘Four Hands’ is sublime and arresting in its imagery.”
“‘Mon Mon Mon Monsters’ actually inspires and entertains while pointedly dealing with a subject that hits close to home for many.”
Mike Thorn and A.M. (Anya) Novak look back at the series entries and provide their thoughts on the newest addition.
