[Fantasia ’12] Lonmonster’s Mini-Reviews #1: ‘The Tall Man’, ‘Sushi Girl’, ‘Black Pond’ & ”The Devil’s Carnival’

  • John Marrone

    Tall Man sounds good. My Amityville Horror is a must watch, having studied it since I read the book back around 1980. Ever see that (faked or not) picture of the dead kid ghost caught in the doorway of the upstairs? Freaky. The crime was horrid either way. Still looks like you spent a solid cpl hours and a cpl cups of coffee posting this anyway. Thanks for the heads up without the spoilers.

      That picture is actually talked about in the movie, creepy stuff for sure. Glad you enjoyed the reviews, more to come!

  • John Marrone

    2/5 for Devils Carnival is total mercy. I’d give it: I attempted suicide/5.

    I have the opportunity to watch Black Pond today after I watch The Revenant but im having a hard time talking myself into it seeing that the only good review I have read for this movie is Yours.

    • Lonmonster

      It’s a really solid movie. It’s won a bunch of festival awards. I think the audience is a big factor in how much you enjoy it.

    i’m definitely looking forward to TALL MAN. i never thought it looked like a severe horror movie or anything. a drama/thriller is what i thought. i’ve had BLACK POND on disc for months and haven’t watched it but i’m going to now after reading your review Lon. also, Lon, when are you due to watch POSSESSION? i can’t wait to see what you thought of it! i hope you like it.

      I actually had to skip the screening for it because it was at the same time as another movie I had to cover. I’m going to try to get my hands on a copy though because I really want to see it after what you said about it!

    Will see everything here but I don’t know about The Tall Man. Martyrs is one of my favorite movies so this might suffer by comparison.
