Cam (2018) #IthacaFantastik

As a self-proclaimed “media personality”, there is an inherent… strangeness to the whole thing. In a similar sense to the films I review, I’m laying myself bare out here, ready to be picked apart for my opinions, which is often pretty justified. I don’t know you, and you barely know me, even if you’ve been reading my work for a while.

Hereditary (2018)

I first began my ignominious career at CineDump by bemoaning the fact that I would never experience something as powerful, soul-shattering, or upsetting as the first run of Friedkin’s The Exorcist. I’ve never been one to be seduced by too-easy tales of the good ol’ days long gone, but sitting pinned into some tacky orange 1970’s seating while the people around me screamed, vomited, and ran for cover---oh, my dear, this is why sick people get into horror movies in the first place: the experience. We could watch cartel videos if we wanted gore or tune in to the news if we wanted tragedy, but that’s not what we want.

Bloodrunners (2017)

Bloodrunners just might be the greatest horror comedy yet unleashed on 2017. I don’t know if that’s a point for or against the movie, but, in either case, it’s pretty damn hysterical. Set in the dying days of prohibition, Bloodrunners nominally focuses on Detective Jack Malone, a hardboiled cop in a sleepy East Coast town whose main jobs seem to be collecting protection money from speakeasies and hanging out at the local whoremansion, where he drowns his memories of World War I in an endless supply of booze and flesh.
